I have the massive ESV study bible and I was looking for something a little smaller that I could carry around and travel with. This bible is great. It's everything I was looking for. It's very attractive with the crown of thorns on the cover and the silver lining and imprinting. For the price, there isn't anything better. I'm very happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone.
This Bible was a Christmas gift for my son, who is a senior in college. He told me that he has already had strangers make comments to him about the uniqueness of the Bible's cover. In less than a week, it opened the door for at least 2-3 conversations with people who were curious about his faith. In addition to being attractive, the Bible is also portable and easy to read (print size). Makes me think I should buy a couple more to keep on hand to use as gifts. This Bible was a great choice.
As a Discipleship Pastor I meet people in coffee shops, restaurants, or whatever is convenient for them. This smaller bible allows me to carry it and use it wherever I go! The type is large forva small bible, and it is easily read. This is Prolly the best value in a bible I've seen. The crown of thorns motif on the front and back cover are unique and very well done! I have been asked about my bible by complete strangers. Believers and nonbelievers. This is a great bargain. I highly recommend it.
