5 Stars Out Of 5
Pink and Hot Pink Duo-Tone Cover Compact

For those interested in this Bible, I wanted to let those know: this Bible is sewn! (From China.) Wonderful to hold in the hand...imagine holding two Bibles in one volume about the size of a medium Bible! Well, perhaps even smaller! As you can imagine, the font is very small, and I wish the font was a bolder font and darker, but with a CBD magnifier book marker (they offer a four pack of various sized magnifiers of this flat kind with a great price), this is very do-able when your eyes are giving you trouble. I would not recommend this Bible to anyone who cannot see small print even with visual aides. But the good thing about this font is the placement on the page, the nice larger chapter headings and numberings make the sections very easy to find, and it has a lot of white spacing around the text, so it feels wonderful in that regard.
The content is what is so impressive...the NIV with the Message is a real privilege to compare side by side in such an easy manner without a jalopy brick on one's lap. You can actually cuddle up with this one. I have read a number of chapters in various places in this Bible, and I must reiterate, these two Bibles together make for a wonderful experience in Bible reading.
I highly recommend giving this a try, and it the print is too small, you can always give it to someone younger...I believe it will change their life.
Blessings to you all in Jesus' Name.
