I like my new Bible. Its size makes it easy to carry either in my hand or inside my purse wherever I go, much easier than the one I was trying to carry with my wrist that has recently healed from a serious break. While small, the print is clear and easy to read. It's just the perfect solution to the problem I was having.
For the longest I wanted to have a physical bible that was small and light enough to go any and every where with me. And this one is it. I can throw it in my purse or diaper bag and be able to read the bible no matter where I go. I also love that it is pink and gray and has the attached ribbon book mark. The imitation leather feels more like suede to me.
I wanted a handy complete OT-NT bible that I could read during those resting/waiting moments when I'm out of the house, but as it turned out this wonderful bible became my steady companion for bible study when I'm in the house! I love that it's lightweight, and as I do a lot of verse comparisons from one book to another, flipping through the pages is a breeze! The black leather cover and gilded pages gives it a hint of sophistication and seriousness and I love the feel of this book in my hands. The small typeface enables me to have a glance at the bigger picture of the story surrounding the verses, actually a challenge with large print bibles. Font's all in black, which is soothing to my eyes and the ribbon marker is a plus (though I don't need it- where's the "2 full-color maps?"). Best of all, it's the translation, the price and the shipping. With NLT I can get straight through to studying the context and meaning of what I read without having to struggle with words. And AS ALWAYS with my experience, CBD shipped it to me fast and for a price that's hard to beat.
