This is just what I wanted - a compact bible to travel with which is still large enough to read. Thanks to clear printing it is as readable as a novel (although the text is small) and the super light paper makes it compact too. A good quality item that should last well and looks great.
The translation is nice too. I wanted a literal but easy to read translation, free of the poetic difficulties of the King James. the ESV is direct and straight to the point using modern language, but without dumbing down or making the scripture seem stylised or trendy. A very nie balance.
Now that i have decided to make the ESV bible my main version to read, I wanted a small one that i could take to work and carry out. This version is just great for that. I read it on the train and use for church. Fits nicely in my bag Love the introduction it gives to each book. Print good for a bible this size. Comparable with the NIV print of bible same size. Was a wee bit disappointed in the cover when I first got it but it has grown on me. It is not leather but has a plasticky feel to it however i think this will be more durable and more suitable for carrying around than a leather one. Like i say it has grown on me. I love the ESV translation My other ESV is a thinline and is just great
Brilliant quality pocket Bible, you can tell by the feel that it will last for years. Perfect size to carry around most of the time, and will fit in your pocket if you are a large bloke. Unlike the other bibles in this range, it is not a red letter Bible, which is great if you are a purist. Other than that it looks awesome.
I am probably being unfair, but if you want to really read the bible, then don't buy any version apart from The king James Version. If you read this and then the King James version, then you will realise it's way too different. This isn't the word of god.
The bibloe looks nice and is a great gift, but you are kidding yourself if you think your giving anyone the inspired word of god. I recommend the oxford press king james version.
I purchased this book as a present for my wife, when she opened it her facial expressions said it she really liked it. I brought it for its looks as it's front cover appealed to me with the cross etched in the cover, pleased with purchase.
