When I discovered my first copy of this bible was damaged (wrong place, wrong time), I immediately ordered a second one. I like it that much. The NIV Compact Bible with giant print and Italian Duo-Tone cover is the best "go to church" bible I've ever had. It's soft and comfortable in my hands, and the large text and single-column format makes it much easier to read than traditional two-column bibles. The NIV is not the version used by my denomination (that would be the NRSV), but no matter. The differences are minor and in no way undermine the high value of this bible.
There is a lot to love about this Bible. The premium leather is very nice! The font size is just right for a large print Bible. I'm not sure that I would call it "giant" print. I love the readability of the clean, simple one-column layout. The only drawback is the small margin which makes the text nearly disappear into the gutter. If it had bigger margins, this Bible world be perfect.
