5.0 out of 5 stars Good translation and compact, 4 Feb 2009
This review is from: The Bible: English Standard Version (Bible Esv) (Paperback)
The ESV offers probably the most accurate word-for-word translation out there...it can at points come over a bit dry but in general it's pretty impressive.

This particular Bible is a great little version:

Size: 14.4 x 10 x 2.6 cm so you can actually get it into your back pocket (just!).

It has a soft front cover which means pages can get creased, but saves on weight and space.

The font's relatively small because it has to be - they fit about 55 lines each page.

It doesn't have cross-references unless there's a direct quotation, but it does have a small number of footnotes for explanation of size, weight etc and possible other translations.

All in all it's a great little Bible, and one I would highly recommend.
