Reviews - What do customers think about ESV Pocket New Testament w/Ps & Pr-Black TruTone?
My favorite pocket NT May 6, 2010
5 stars for content. The ESV translation of the New Testament is wonderful, and they have also included Psalms and Proverbs which is great.
4 stars for the actual book:
This is actually not as small as I expected, and size was a major reason why I bought it. I measured 3.5 x 4.625 x 0.625 inches at home. While this is small, it is not really tiny. I have a couple of KJV mini-NTs which are a few tenths of an inch smaller in each dimension, which makes them much less noticeable in my pocket. By the way, the KJV translation tends to say the most with the least words, so that may be part of it. However I have also seen a tinier NLT pocket new testament and that version is almost the opposite of KJV, a paraphrase, so one would expect it not to be as brief. This ESV mini NT has nicer, more luxurious leather cover which tends to make it a bit bulkier than most pocket NTs.
Another minor complaint is that the pages are a bit transparent, which makes extensive reading less pleasant at least to me. I have seen more transparent pages on other Bibles so this is not really bad. However, one of my tiny KJVs, which was also cheaper, has wonderfully opaque pages. With Bibles, you need to look at them in your hands.
Strong points: - section headings in small but bold font (easy to find "Jesus calms the storm") - words of Christ in red (more purplish red) - verse numbers and footnotes are tiny and don't get in the way when reading (way better than many other small Bibles) - cover and binding seem solid, hopefully will last longer than most pocket Bibles
Overall I would give it 4.5 stars. I haven't yet seen a modern, reliable, literal translation of the New Testament in a tiny package that is better and more convenient to carry than this one.
Pocket sized ESV... Mar 30, 2010
I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of this little bible. I have no issues with it whatsoever. It serves its purpose, and it is with me everywhere I go. Best 10 bucks you'll ever spend.
Just what I was looking for Mar 27, 2010
First, a note about this translation. I've become a big fan of the ESV. While I still lean heavily on the New American Standard Bible (NASB) for study, the ESV is not only right next to it during study (along with a couple others) but is becoming my preferred translation for general reading. It's just as readable as the NIV, but more accurate, and more elegant and memorable in terms of style. I'm very happy to see it growing in popularity.
I was very pleased to find this ESV New Testament. I wanted something small to make it easier to carry so I had the Word with me more often. This is just slightly larger than a Gideon NT. I have Bibles on my iPhone, but I don't always want to suck up my battery. Besides, I think it's important to occasionally take a break from looking at screens whether big or small. There's something about the printed word that helps us slow down.
The print quality is crisp and while the font is, of course, small the typeface is very readable. I have a couple of other pocket NTs and they are not nearly as readable.
The TruTone cover is wonderful. I have other Bibles with TruTone covers and have found them to be soft, pliable, and very durable. Out of the box, the cover is beautiful, smooth black and already very soft (not at all stiff like bonded leather). If it's like my other TruTone covers, it should soften up more with use.
When I decided I wanted a small NT I knew I would prefer the ESV, but I wasn't sure what I'd find since the ESV is still relatively new. Not only did I find my preferred translation, but this ESV is among the nicest pocket NTs I found out of all of them.
Awesome Little Bible Nov 2, 2009
I was sooo happy to find this pocket ESV. I wanted something the size of a Gideon Bible. This is about the same size. The text is easy to read and the size is perfect for a back pocket or purse. I found the pages to be thick for the size, the Bible feels and looks very durable and the cover is super soft and flexible. Great Bible, great buy!
Exactly what I was looking for! Oct 17, 2009
I have a LARGE ESV study bible and wanted something smaller that I could carry in my pocket. This is about the size of a Gideon NT bible (just slightly wider). The font is really small (the verse #'s especially), but that's to be expected with a bible that fits in your back pocket! Also, the construction of this bible seems to be better than my other ESV (same publisher). 5 stars!
