I would not recommend this Bible to anyone. I purchased off the shelf at a B&N simply because I was looking for a compact NIV that looked good. I only briefly thumbed through the pages before I paid for it. It was when I got home and began to read it that I discovered something was wrong. The print is ridiculously too small. I wear #1 readers and still had a hard time seeing the words. I decided to give it a try, but I was so focused on the word that I was trying to see, the reading flow was slow at best and therefore, comprehension was lacking. I got on-line to see if I could find the font size, but who shops for books by font size. I wish I had gotten on-line sooner to at least look at some of the reviews. The reviews are loaded with poor ratings simply because of font size. As one purchaser wrote, "it might look good on a shelf, but it is impossible to read." That reminds me of don't judge a book by its cover, literally. Zondervan makes a quality Bible and this one looks great. I would have rather sacrificed the thicker pages for thinner pages with a larger font. Bibles are meant to be read, therefore I would not recommend this Bible at all.Was this review helpful?

I bought as a gift for my daughter for her journey in the Bible. For me the print is a little small but she says it is fine for her.

The cover of the NIV Gift Bible drew my attention because I love bright, colorful bibles, but after getting it home, I found the print was very small and difficult too see. For anyone who has a vision problem, I would not recommend this particular bible, if not, it is a great translation to read God's message.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
