Reviews - What do customers think about HCSB Large Print Compact Bible/Snap-Burgundy Bond S/S?
Type too small! Nov 4, 2008
My eyes aren't what they once were but that said the text in this Bible is too small - they could have left less white space and gone with a larger font, it's probably about an 8pt (they should have gone with a 10pt) and the notes are smaller and almost invisible in all but the best lighting. I bought four of these which I'm not going to give away to some younger folks.
That's my only complaint, everything else is good, I'll be ordering the next size up today...
Loved it, but poor quality binding Oct 18, 2008
Loved the cover, the size is just right. The translation is excellent. the print is a little small but great with a little page magnifier . Loved the snap flap. Just right for the car.
That said, there are some negatives. Within a couple of weeks of receiving this bible, the binding tore. I opened up the replacement tonight and it is equally flimsy. It just won't hold up to regular use. I am planning to send both of them back and try another version
Great Companion Bible Jul 21, 2008
This little Bible is just the right size for purse & portability. It's the perfect companion to my study Bible that's entirely too bulky and heavy to take back & forth to Church. The only thing I'd change would be to enlarge the type, but then that would add to its size & weight, and therefore counterproductive to portability. I'd certainly recommend it highly, especiallly to ladies. It's probably better for a purse or briefcase - a little bulky for a pocket.
Holman Christian Standard Bible Feb 13, 2008
I love the size because it fits in my purse. Plus, I can read it even with the smaller print. It is a great translation, a helpful resource for Bible study.
Define "large print" in product descriptions, please....! May 12, 2007
Overall a very nice product, very convenient size for carrying around, well-made, BUT the print is actually 8 1/4 point, a small font hard on eyes with imperfect vision. Otherwise would be a five-star item.
