    ESV Thin line reference bible
    July 1, 2022
    Quality: 4

    Meets Expectations: 4
    I particularly like the Cordovan cover design. I only started reading the ESV translation over the past year and quite enjoy it. The font size is adequate for reading closeup in bed. The binding is sturdy being smyth sewn and is loosening up after three months of nightly reading. The paper quality is really not bad considering the price point. For straight forward reading the paragraph format is fine but deep down inside I still prefer a verse by verse format. All in all I am pleased with this reader. Crossway produces good quality bibles in each price level. You wont be disappointed in this bibles.

    Love this bible. Nice, rugged look at a very good price. Cannot beat a good size, portable, yet still readable, ESV.

    Comparing ESV Large Print Bibles

    I bought 5 different LARGE PRINT ESV Bibles (not study Bibles, all with imitation leather covers) for my family and to compare things that I couldn't easily tell from descriptions online. I'm comparing:

    (1) Value Thinline (navy with mosaic cross) "Large Print Value Thinline Bible"

    (2) Thinline (olive cross) "Large Print Thinline Bible"

    (3) Thinline Reference (one olive, one purple) "Large Print Thinline Reference Bible"

    (4) Full size tan ornament (not thinline, a thicker Bible) "Large Print Bible"

    They all have a CONCORDANCE, but the Thinline Reference (3) and the full size (4) have a longer concordance (60 pages) than the others (43 pages).

    The BINDING seems identical on all (but see note at bottom). Same FONT in all; font size is 11 point in the full size (4), 10.5 point in the Reference (3), and 10 point in the others (1) and (2).

    The Value (1) has no MAPS, the Thinline (2) has maps on dull paper, and (3) and (4) have glossy, nice maps (all the same maps).

    The Thinline Reference (3) not only has the many REFERENCES noted within the verses (which the other Bibles don't have), but also has more NOTES AT THE BOTTOM of the pages (one or more per page) than the other Bibles, which had very few (most pages have no notes).

    The VALUE THINLINE (1) and THINLINE (2) have identical pages. The words and page numbers match up throughout the book. The pages appear the same texture and thickness (can see through to back of pages similarly). The covers appear to be similar quality. The only difference between the two (other than the Value has no maps) is that the Value has white page edges and no ribbon marker, while the Thinline (2) has gold page edges and a ribbon marker. (See note at bottom about page quality)

    The Thinline Reference (3) and the full size (4) Bible are EASIER TO READ than (1) or (2) because there is not as much "bleed through" where you can see the words on the back of the page (but you still can, just not as much). The Reference (3) also has wider pages than (1) or (2) and the words are a slightly larger font (10.5). The full size (4) is even nicer with the again slightly larger font (11). The covers of Bibles (1) and (2) measure almost 5-3/4" wide and 8-3/4" high and just over 1" thick. The Reference (3) measures about 6-1/2" x 9-1/2" x 1", and the full size (4) measures about 6-3/4" x 9-5/8" x 1-1/4".

    Other differences:

    Of the two Thinline REFERENCE Bibles (3) I got, the purple one has white page edges and the olive one has gold page edges (otherwise they seem the same quality). The purple one has an imprinted (indented) design, and the olive one has a gold branch design that is flush with the smooth cover. The page numbers and words of these 2 Bibles match up identically.

    The Reference (3) and full size (4) Bibles both have pages to record marriages, births/adoptions, and deaths, which Bibles (1) and (2) do not have.

    Both the Value Thinline (1) and Thinline (2) Bibles have a lesser quality feel on the inside than Bibles (3) and (4). The covers of all the mentioned Bibles feel like very nice quality. However, if all the Bibles are opened up to somewhere in the middle, and you run your finger up and down in the center where the pages meet, the Reference (3) and full size (4) Bibles are smooth. But the Value Thinline (1) and the Thinline (2) feel bumpy/crinkly and make a crinkly sound when you move your finger up or down. They are still fine Bibles, but feel a little cheaper because of this and how you can see the writing from the back side more than the others.

    Quality product, excellent customer service

    The quality of this Crossway ESV Bible is excellent. I bought it for its compact size and the helpful cross references and love the design. The first Bible I received must have made it through the publisher's quality control checks unnoticed--some of the pages were not cut properly and had been folded over and stitched. The bottom of the spine was also crushed. The staff at Christian Book helped quickly and without any trouble to arrange a free replacement. Unfortunately, the replacement also showed up damaged. The Bible itself was damaged but the cardboard sleeve was in great shape.

    The customer service staff at Christian Book inspected the second replacement personally before it shipped. I'm pleased with the Bible (Crossway products have always impressed me for their style and affordability). I'm even more pleased with the excellent customer service I received from Christian Book.

    the font is only 10.5 which is not a large font
    January 18, 2022
    When i Inquired to their customer service about the term "large print" being used to describe several of their products I was sent this reply:

    "Size-descriptors like 'Large Print' or 'Giant Print' can differ from one publisher to the next and do not refer to the actual text size. These sizes are set by the publisher. Instead, these terms are relative to the size of the Bible. For example, 6-point text is normal for a Compact Bible. So an 8-point Compact Bible would be "Large Print," because it is larger than the text in a regular compact Bible."
