Customer Review

on 3 October 2008
I agree with the previous reviewer. I am not an expert on translations, I very much like the RSV text - not unduly modern but well readable - but that is a question of individual taste. However, this edition can only really be used for waiting in airports or the like. Or if you only ever read one psalm or one chapter at a time - which is also possible. But you can't sit down and READ this version for much longer, the print is far too small (and I have good reading eyes !). Whatever you do, don't have damp fingers when touching the paper, it'll ruin it : the paper to this bible is so thin (although positively, the printing is not visible through the paper, unlike quite a few bibles...) The zipper is practical for pockets or bags, although the medallion is quite horrible and of plastic; but if you are reading towards the beginning or the end of the Bible (basically, all of the NT!), it is impractical to turn the pages and the zipper is visually invasive. In resume : for occasional travel use, yes. For home or study, not really. But text, in my opinion, excellent !
