Customer Reviews

It's a great stocking stuffer!
Daniel Jordan
I knew that the print would be small when I order this pocket size but it was much too small for me - even with my glasses on.
J White
It would be more useful if it included the Psalms.

This little book has travelled in my shirt pocket for years. It is very light, yet durable. I have never babied it, and yet its thin pages have never ripped. When stress and anxiety overcome me, I pull the book out, wherever I am, and read its Holy Word to sooth me. It has Jesus' words in red so they can be easily identified, and has enough margin for notes if you desire. I have given these out as Christmas gifts, and am presently ordering a batch to distribute as my heart prompts me. The only drawback is the type is quite small, so people with vision problems may have trouble reading it (A small pocket magnifying glass will solve that problem).

What a great handy little New Testament! Besides being very small, it has Christ's words in red, a very neat format with headings all throughout, a cloth book mark and even a little index in the back with topics and NT references to look up.
Well worth getting if your looking for a great NT that offers A LOT of convenience and quality.

I was really expecting to have at least a little trouble reading this pocket edition. Fortunately, my concerns were unnecessary. I recommend this to anyone looking for a small New Testament to carry around comfortably.

I always loved the NIV edition of the NT.
Now I can take it with me anywhere I go to with great ease! This edition is leather bound. The pages are thin and delicate and the words of Christ are written in red colour as to distinct them from the rest of the book. While the book is small to fit in your shirt-pocket, the words are very readable. Other value is that the book can be given as a gift for someone special, as the first page is a page of "Presented to".

Format: Imitation Leather
This New Testament is an excellent size for carrying in a bag or pocket. Unlike the identically-sized ESV New Testament (ISBN 1581345976), it has a very sturdy, fake-leather cover, which overhangs the pages to protect them from damage. It also has a useful fabric place-marker.

If you want a pocket NT, I highly recommend it. However, it's not entirely without faults...

- unlike some the other reviewers, I do not appreciate the words of Christ being in red: this makes them harder to read, and may imply to some readers that the rest of the bible is not equally inspired of God.

- while easy to read, the NIV translation often strays unhelpfully far from the literal meaning of the original Greek texts.

- there is a very unhelpful FAQ-style page at the back of the book, entitled 'Getting To Know Jesus'. Rather than pointing the reader to God's words on the subject (to be found throughout the preceding pages of the book!), the author gives only his own glib and somewhat misleading musings. What a waste of paper.

But overall, this is a very nice publication... I've bought several as presents for friends and family.

I expected a leather bound pocket New Testament and found it was, according to its own stamped discription, "Leather-Look." I also wish that the description had indicated that the "words of Jesus" would be in red.
