Reviews - What do customers think about ESV Compact TruGrip Bible-RL-Orange?
Not as Durable as It Looks Dec 2, 2008
I bought this little bible, my first compact, at our local Christian retailer. They are going out of business so instead of the suggested retail of $16 or $17 I got it for a little more than $13.
Even on the shelf it looked a little worn and torn and I'm wondering if it was a return. A little wear and tear befits the style a little bit I think. It wasn't long after using the Bible that I wish I had bought a compact Bible with some kind of closure. The rubber flaps tend to curl out and open most of the time. I'm not so sure about how it would hold up in a pack or bag. I'm thinking about wrapping it in something or shelving it.
I like the vibrant color, very eye catching and easy to see. This would make a great gift for a hunter or other outdoorsperson. I also like the textured rubber cover but when I look closer I can see the beginning of cracks along the outside of the spine. I like how it lays flat, not what I would have expected for such a small book. The place marker ribbon is a touch and I was very impressed they didn't skimp when I found an impressive concordance in the back. Other generosities include footnotes and headers. All these niceities add up and does make the Bible a little bulky and weighty.
I'm not too keen on the translation but it will do. I mostly bought it for its cover. I've also since ordered a different compact bible as this does not seem like the one I will primarily carry but it should make a nice backup.
Grippy Little Orange ESV for Microscope Owners Aug 3, 2008
I like how small and rugged it is. It would be my preferred bible except that the 7 point font is unreadable unless I hold it about six inches from my eyes. Others may not mind.
Poorly constructed. Nov 27, 2007
This is a review of the ESV Compact TruGrip Orange Bible, ISBN 1581346875.
PROS The binding is sewn and not glued so this bible lays completely flat and should stand up to some abuse. The rubber cover seems very durable and looks to withstand much use. The silver ribbon (marker) is attached well, is long and wide enough, and of quality material. The page layout is two column without cross references, with text notes, and pretty readable. They managed to fit a concordance into the back of this bible, in an even smaller font than the text but still usable in my opinion. The overall dimensions are very compact and handy 4x6x1 inches.
CONS The paper used is as thin as many of the other ESV bibles by Crossway and you can see two pages worth of text underneath the page being viewed. What I can't understand is why this bible is thicker than the other compact ESV bibles yet the layout is the same. Perhaps the pages are less prone to tearing by being thicker. The cardboard to which the rubber cover is glued is separating into many layers as the glue pulls the rubber away from the paper. Words of Christ in red; I'd prefer an edition with all black text. Uses the original 2001 text and not the updated ESV text released this year.
Summary I love the ESV translation and highly recommend it, just not this particular bible. Crossway got many parts right, but the thin paper combined with rubber cover fails miserably as it is starting to separate after only a few uses.
 Two months later; I gave this bible to our youth pastor last month. He loves it and takes it to church every Sunday now. Not my cup of tea but perhaps it deserves more than the two stars I gave it.
