This easy to carry 1984 NIV compact reference Bible has numerous excellent features; center-column cross reference, words of Christ in red, easy to carry in pocket or purse. I purchased two at $9.99!!! each and gave one as a gift. The recipient "loves my new Bible." Thank you CBD for another great Bible at a great value.
I am a pastor and it is great to have a small Bible to travel with. This is a great size and it still comes with the helpful index and maps. I always want maps in my Bibles! The button flap is nice because I don't have to worry about pages being bent up when I toss it in the glove box or in a bag. The one draw back is small print if you're using it in services with dimmed lighting, like a tenebrae.
This is truly amazing quality for such a low price. Convenient for carrying around, beautiful design, and just so CHEAP! Such a steal! Get it while you can. :) Thank God for this beautiful Bible design!
The quality of the cover on this Bible is good; smells like leather. The stitching and color combination is nice too. The cross references are plentiful, but there's not much in the way of alternative or original meanings for old or uncommon words. The font is small (I expected that from the description, so I haven't rated lower for that) but still quite readable. However, the print is light, which reduces visibility on already small print. This Bible is small and light enough to be very portable without being too tiny, but the pages are harder to turn because they're so thin (an issue with a lot of Thinline Bibles). I guess it's all in what's more important to you.
I cannot believe I was able to get this beautiful leather bound Bible for such a low price!!! It snaps shut and fits in my purse. It's just what I was looking for! Christianbook.com provided excellent service, as well! Thank you.
