Normally I do not write reviews, I had to this time. One of our ladies went to a retreat at another local church in September. The following Sunday she was showing the rest of us her new Bible, which was this Bible, in the blue cover. Immediately I wanted one! I have a regular sized Ryrie Study Bible, it is too big for church and heavy.
I came home and ordered the Holman Compact Bible in Burgundy Leather with the magnetic flap. Even though the lady had her normal bound Holmon Compact Bible for a week it was showing sign of wear along the edges from being in her purse.
I have to say I love this Bible, I have poor eyesight, the print is large enough I can read eaisly both in church and home. I love that I can drop it in my purse and head out the door.
I like the stars next to the fulfilled prophecy and coming promised prophecy. The end of text reference is great as well.
I do like the flap it protects the pages perfectly. My dry marker and pencil slip easily inside the flap and do not come loose in my purse.
I cannot wait to travel with my new friend it will take no space in a suitcase or carry on.
Now several of us have the Holman Compact Bible and not one has voiced disappointment over our selection.
I just love this edition of the KJV. They did an outstanding job with the size, print, binding and cover. It is easy to carry on Sunday morning. The print is very readable size and the dark print makes it even easier to read. I purchased the cover with the crown of thorns and it is very nice quality. I expect to have this bible for many years.
I have arthritis in my hands and needed a Bible that would not be difficult to hold. This Bible is lightweight and is easy to hold. I do however wish it was a little thinner. But all in all a very nice Bible.
