It's great!

It's nice n' small, hardcover, very sturdy-can handle lots and lots of abuse, nice n' legible, words of Christ in red-which is way cool. It's a very nice Bible. As a teen I don't like carrying huge Bibles around, and I'm very bad at taking care of my stuff. So, it's gre...
It's nice n' small, hardcover, very sturdy-can handle lots and lots of abuse, nice n' legible, words of Christ in red-which is way cool. It's a very nice Bible. As a teen I don't like carrying huge Bibles around, and I'm very bad at taking care of my stuff. So, it's great because it's small, and very strong.

Guys, this is an edition you can disrespect physically, and it'll still hold up to the wear and tear. The binding is sturdy enough to withstand abuse. The slightly textured binding surface is smooth enough to use as a notepaper writing surface. The casual appearance of the mass-market dimension hardcover is enough to throw off disdainful heathens who have unerring radar to spot a Bible-toter from across the street. The printer assembled the hardcover edition (ISBN 0718001311) in Belgium, which continues to be a land of QUALITY layout and binding. The paper is thin but adequately opaque. The typeface is surprisingly EASY to read; the black ink is rich enough to make out the rather small font (point size unknown). Warning: should you absolutely need/require an edition (soft/hard) that has center-column reference or verse-reference, then move on: this little tome has neither. The tint of the red-letter words of Jesus is paler than I would have preferred, yet most publishers seem to scrimp on the red pigment, so this baby is no paler in red intensity than others. Folks, you owe it to yourself to have this powerful little sucker: the concordance-free text is REFRESHING; you can get immersed in the narrative or message(s) without getting bogged down or sidetracked by minutiae. just like candy has 'mouthfeel', the ?hand? of this Bible --the cover and pages-- feels just right. A perfect edition to give away without remorse over the cost, and a volume which fits perfectly in the hands of a pre-teen guy, a petite woman, or anyone whose arms SAG from steadily holding up heftier complete Bibles. Easily less than the cost of an admittance for an adult to the cinema (these days). Have this in your glove compartment, or in your roomy pocketbook, or in the hip pocket of grunge jeans. I recommend the hardcover over the paperback, since the dollar difference is offset by much greater resistance to dog-eared corners and torn-off covers. No apocrypha. I withheld 1 star because of no concordance, and 1 star because of no apocrypha (don't start w/ me!). Other than that, no misgivings. A footnote for those whose eyes SEEM to be failing/fading: for some reason my unaided eyes picked out the rather fine print of the text without a problem when studying on a brightly-lit day. I have had problems to decipher LARGER typeface, so this gem won't be a headache. Bye.
