This is a very attractive Bible that can go anywhere. I recently purchased this one as the ESV I have is a larger, hardcover edition and I found it was not comfortable to curl up and read. Hence I wanted something more compact. I love this Bible. The size is perfect, the red lettering of Jesus' words is great for study and the nice soft cover allows it to lay open without immediately trying to flop closed like I have experienced with other editions. If there were anything I would change, it would be for the typeset to be slightly larger, but that is my issue with my failing eyesight. Unfortunately I have been unable to find an ESV in this size with a larger font. Otherwise I am extremely pleased and would recommend this to anyone. It is lightweight, comfortable to hold and very well made.
I was looking for a Bible I could bring to collage. I needed something that will not get the pages all screwed up if it bangs around in my backpack all day. I got this Bible because of its size (Small Bible, big print) and because it folds over itself so that the pages don't get crapped on If stuff things in my backpack. The magnet is strong so the Bible stays all wrapped up when not used. The extra length of the cover can get a little obnoxious at times, but it's a good deal!
