Cover is nice, but the print is pretty small. My Sunday school students like it, but they like bigger print and this one has no maps in the back, and my students wanted that. The kids love the cover though, good quality Bible to get in their hands and maybe share with others.
This is a beautiful bible which was very affordable (it was discounted at the time I purchased it). And it is even more charming in person. Also the imitation leather is very soft and nice to hold. The print is very small, so I don't find it comfortable to read it in dim light; however, the light from my bedside table lamp is enough to read it by. I also prefer this 1984 NIV version to the 2011 NIV translation.
It's nice that the quotations of Christ are in red; it's easy to flip to something you have in mind. A plus is that this bible is so visually appealing my toddler keeps picking it up and looking at it. I've explained to him it's a bible and read some passages to him. A good start!
This bible is also small enough to carry with you. I highly recommend it.
We purchase these small Bibles to present to Rainbow Girls who belong to the organization which is affiliated with the Masonic orders...they are attractive and appeal to younger girls who have little or no way of receiving religious instruction in our public schools...we like the NIV
I really like this Bible! It's super cute and very light. After reading the dimensions, I pictured it to be a bit smaller than it is. But it is still very awesome! The print is kind of small, which is expected with a compact Bible. Be mindful that if you are one to toss it in your backpack or purse like me, be mindful that it can get a bit dingy fast. Perhaps utilize a small cloth bag to cover it. Also, the dragonfly on the front isn't just appealing to children ;) Great product!
