The NLT, price, and the size of book is just right for give-aways, but the font is so small and somewhat light, and the footnotes nearly microscopic, that it's a job to read for any length of time in my opinion.
I highly recommend this Bible rather you are a new believer or have been a believer for years. I love this Bible especially with what Greg Laurie adds. It's a great Bible to develop a solid foundation for your faith and walk with God. And if you have been a believer for years, I must say that this Bible refreshes you and is a great reminder of the essentials of the Christian faith and life such as studying your Bible, praying, resisting temptation, and what Jesus has done on the cross etc.
i give these bibles away in memory of my only child, when i speak at youth groups about narcotics overdose prevention and education. i wish i could afford to give them to the Christian Schools i speak at too.
its a great little bible and the kids love them and they are easy to have handy for the kids!
I have given so many of these pocket NLT New Testaments away. I have reordered several times. They are a great translation for those who first language is not English, as well for those who want a fresh way to read the Word. The answers to common questions in the front are very helpful for new believers and seekers too.
