This was a Christmas gift for our 12 year-old daughter. It was time to upgrade from a teeny print gift Bible her children's ministry director had given her when she graduated to youth group. She told her grandmother that she got a "grown-up Bible"--and we all know tweens want to be grown-up more than anything else. The cover is soft and the size of the Bible is just right for a nightstand and toting to church or youth group. I think the giant print is fabulous for everyone; it really makes the Bible very readable while maintaining its smaller size.
