Reviews - What do customers think about ESV Compact Bible-RL-Tan/Diamond TruTone?
Convenient Portable Bible May 27, 2008
This compact version of the ESV translation of the Bible is a wonderful product. The ESV translation of the Bible is one that is faithful to the Greek and Hebrew texts and is very readable. The translation philosophy behind the ESV of being "essentially literal" is superior to a "dynamic equivalent" form of translation. The quality of the product is good. The binding is good. The size is very good. One has to remember that this is a compact bible and therefore it cannot have every feature that a standard size bible would have, and the font is small.
A little too small Mar 25, 2008
This is a beautiful Bible with a nice cover and a great translation, but this compact Bible is way too small for any real use. The type is so little that it is very difficult to read, and the proportions in the picture are misleading because it is quite a bit smaller than the regular thinline Bible which is what I intended to purchase.
Great Little Bible Mar 3, 2008
It's small enough to fit in your purse or pocket, but not so small that you need a magnifier to read the words. If you are looking for a good ESV bible, this is the one for you.
I can take this Bible everywhere Jan 22, 2008
When I discovered the ESV, I knew I wanted a copy of it. It is the most readable essentially literal translation I've found. I had intended to buy one of the study editions, but then found the compacts were so much cheaper and would fit into my purse. I felt like I was just "settling" for the compact edition, but now I love it. I have very good up-close vision, so the super tiny font size is no problem for me. In 10 or 15 years maybe I'll have to start carrying a magnifying glass in my purse, too.
Great Bible! Oct 5, 2007
This Bible is very true to the literal Hebrew and Greek, AND it is written very well. It is understandable, beautiful, and literal. I recommend this Bible for study and for memorizing.
The compact version is a great size for convenience, but the text is a little small. There are bigger versions available with bigger text.
