I love my new NIV bible. It's beautifully made and the leather is superb and the color is amazing. I love the way it fits in my purse perfectly. The print is small on the eyes for people that might have a problem. It works for me just fine.
The Bible is everything that I expected. Yes, the print is very small, but the Bible fits in the inside breast pockets of my jackets. That is important to me as I can carry it with me, unobtrusively, wherever I go. Whenever I am out and about, I am on the hunt for the opportunity to witness for Christ.
The quality of the Bible is very good and I expect to be able to use it for many, many years to come. I scotch taped a credit card size fresnel lens to the back inside fly page. The are available at some Optometrists and most Drug Stores. One can read the print just fine w/o the lens, it is there JIC! The font is very readable with no confusion between similar shaped letters.
I highly recommend this Bible as a gift or for one's self, especially if one needs or wants to carry a Bible with them at all times.
