I wanted my kids and I to be reading from the same text for our morning study times together and each of us had a different version. I didn't want to spend a lot of money as we each have Bibles that we use personally, and this was a perfect fit. I was surprised at how small 8.2 font size is, but it works! I would definitely use this Bible to give away to someone also.
I prefer the King James' Version of the Bible, simply because it has been translated from a more reliable text than some others. However, having said that, for new Christians who find it difficult to understand the KJV, the English Std Version is an acceptable substitute. It is more reliable than any other of the non-KJV translations, with the exception of the fact that a part of the scripture has been left out. I John 5:7 is not translated accurately from the original text. However, it is an acceptable substitute to the KJV, and has far less negatives than other versions in so-called "modern" English.
