This compact bible with large print exceeded my expectations. It fits in my purse nicely, so I can take it to work where I can read during breaks, or doctor office to read when I'm waiting for the appt., or auto mechanic (tire store, or such) and read while I am waiting on their service. If God hasn't already touched my spirit to read a certain area of the bible, I like to thumb through the back area where this features special topics. The faith in God and the Holy Spirit always leads me to where I need to be, usually straight back to Him. I have had a lot of compliment on this particular bible and will continue to read it and recommmend it. It is the greatest. The Christian Book Store .com sure had what I needed. And I am thankful.
