Review: I love this bible. Very well made!

recipient loved it

Review: I purchased this for a college student being Confirmed this spring. Yes the text is small but overall the Bible is a great size (for portability). He seemed very pleased with this gift & appreciated it being personalized for him. I would definitely recommend.

Very happy!

Review: Excellent compact bible! I read a passage every night before bed!

anglican bible made for catholics

Review: All you have to do is read the first pages inside the cover to realize that this is not done by a catholic publisher. The bible is published by oxford press. If you want a catholic RSV version buy Ignatius press.

Picture decieving, smaller than it looks

Review: I wanted a small portable bible, but this is smaller than I expected from looking at the pictures. It would be helpful if they put a recognizable object next to it for comparison. The print therefore is even smaller, barly readable for me. Since I had it engraved i cannot send it back. Best Uses: Travel; Cons: Too small print; Describe Yourself: Rarely Read; Pros: Nice hard cover

Exactly what i was looking for!

Review: I use this small bible at work along with my Daily devotion book. It is small and light weight so I can carry anywhere with me. Best Uses: At work, Travel Reading; Describe Yourself: Rarely Read; Pros: Compact light wieght

Excellent Bible

Review: If you read 4 chapters a day you can read the entire Bible in a little less than a year. I keep this Bible in my purse so that if I find myself waiting anyplace, such as doctor's offices or restaurants, I have it and am able to continue my Bible study. It's a perfect size and the hard cover helps protect it from damage from the other items in my purse.

The name says it all.

Review: It is a very nice, compact edition of the RSV Catholic Bible. It's atypical color (a sort of midnight blue) is cool too. It is very reasonably priced. One of the great things about it is that it can be personalized, so it makes for a great gift. I gave this compact version to my husband for Easter. It is now his primary bible for travel and Bible study. Best Uses: All readers, Gift, Reference, Travel Reading; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy to Carry, Easy To Read, Informative

New! Seen on TV! The Ronco PortaBible!

Review: My everyday, all-purpose, bible. Sturdy, light and still readable. I can toss it in a purse or take it on the trail without worrying about it. It's already survived high winds in the Mojave, and a couple of hikes, and is still in great shape. Learn it. Use it. (Just try to) wear it out! Best Uses: Bedside, Camping, Classroom OldTest Use, Gift, Reference, Travel Reading; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Engaging characters, Great Ending, High-quality binding, Informative, Page-Turner, Portable, Readable typeface, Suspenseful, Useful Prayer Section, Well Written
