NIV Compact Thinline Bible, Italian Duo-tone, tan/black 1984
A Good Back-Pocket Bible
I bought this for my brother who wanted a Bible that was able to fit in his back jean pocket. Not only does this Bible fit snugly, but it also is made of good quality material. The words are small; however, they are sharp and able to be read from an average distance with average eyes. From the response and use that my brother has now given it I think that it is a good purchase.

Print very small
My main purpose in the purchase of this Bible was to have an NIV version that our pastor uses to preach from to take to church with me. My NIV study Bible is way too big for me to lug around and my smaller Bibles are different translations. Fortunately, my eyesight with glasses still permits me to read the small print, but anyone with even slight deterioration of eyesight would have problems. I knew this ahead of time, but decided to purchase it for what I needed it for despite the small print! and I would do it again.

Excellent all around Bible.
This Bible is great. Perfect size to fit in a backpack, glove compartment, or desk. I bought this for myself while I am going through Spiritual Boot Camp and it is a perfect size to bring with me everywhere. If I all of the sudden want or need to read a passage it is there with me all the time in my car or bag.
The quality of the Bible is great and the print is perfect for me. However, I am a 28 year old so my eyes are just fine. My mother looked at it and said that the print would have to be larger for her.
I would highly recommend this Bible if you are looking for a compact go to Bible that you can take everywhere you can't beat its price and quality.

The bible was small in size like I wanted, therefore, the type was small also. By looking at the examples of type in the example, I thought it would be larger than it was. However, it is readable. A big plus for the bible is that the pages are thick enough that the print isn't visible from the other side. I didn't have any problem with the red letter print that others had mentioned. All in all, I am satisfied with my bible.
