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.
I now have 3 Zondervan bibles with the renaissance fine leather, and love all of them. I think this is by far the nicest compact bible I have seen or owned. Before this I always used the bonded leather with the snap on front. This is a much nicer product than those are. For the 20$ or so I spent I am thrilled. I can tell you that the Brown leather bibles by Zon. are very different from the black ones. I also bought my wife the Renaissance fine leather womens daily devotional bible, same look as this one except the leather feels thinner. I do have to say I like the black leather much better. It feels thicker and just tougher in general. If you are in the market for a new bible give the Renaissance leather a shot, I think you'll like it, especially the black leather, it's so soft.
All praise to Jesus Christ, pray for this world and the lost people in it. Share your reason for hope with someone. Love to you all.
