I personally love this New testament bible. yes i know it may not be so sturdy or hard cover but you have to remember you only pain $1.39 for this wonderful NT Bible. I like that the pages are white and you can easily put this NT Bible in you purse. I love handing them out to those who need it. one thing that stood out the most is that it does not even look like a Bible. Many new believers or ones who are leaning toward Christ tend to be embarrassed to hold a bible and this one is perfect for them because of the design in the front.
