Of all the Bibles I own, which are many, this NIV Thinline, large print edition is my favorite. It has two-columns per page with a 11-point type large print which is actually large as compared with most other Bibles that are advertised as large print.

If you're wanting a Bible that's easy to carry, with print that's easy to read, without the all the bells and whistles that comes with those bulky study Bibles, this is the one for you. This Bible does not include references or study notes, nor is there any room in the side margins for writing notes being barely 1/8th inch wide. It includes a 60-page concordance, 8 pages of maps, and a weights and measures chart.

If I had to look for a downside to this Bible it would be that the paper has some bleedthrough, ie., you can just make out the print on the opposite side of the page. But I've gotten used to it, and it's not a distraction any longer. The binding is Smyth-sewn and sturdy, but will lay flat on the desk regardless to what page you're reading.

Extremely thin for a large print Bible. I use this to give to any new person or convert who wants a Bible they can keep for years to come. Great price. A no lose situation.

Zondervan makes a multitude of cover styles and sizes in their Thinline Bibles. This review is specifically for the NIV Thinline Reference Bible, Compact. They also offer an alternate version similar in size and style, but it doesn't have the Concordance nor does it have scripture references in the column on each page. Those copies are sold on Amazon and listed without "Reference" in the title, and they also come at a slight discount compared to this version. However, the non-reference versions have more cover options to choose from.

If you're looking for a really good quality, compact NIV Bible then look no further. I received the Italian Duo-Tone cover where the spine is dark brown and the rest is a lighter brown. It's a nice, soft leather that looks sharp and feels good to the touch but isn't too thin. It's a "lay-flat" Bible and should do so once broken in. It should go without saying, but the print size is very small in order to fit so much into a great travel size Bible. It also has a nice presentation page for you to fill out to give as a gift to someone. Overall, the quality seems top notch and I would expect this to last many years of heavy use. Don't use the measurements provided by Amazon though, I just measured the copy I received today at 6.7 inches tall, 4.5 inches wide, and .75 inches thick. It really is three quarters of an inch thick even though Amazon has the measurement at 1.6".

This copy as well as any printed on or after March 2011 should be the newly released NIV 2011 translation. By Googling "Slowley" you can find a great write up detailing the differences in this version compared to NIV 1984 and TNIV. It was created by a software engineer to show a comprehensive list of differences.

The NIV ThinLine Bible published by Zondervan, like all the rest of the publications coming out this company, is exceptional! The thin profile of the bible, the large (but not ridiculous) font size, and the book indexes make this a very usable volume for study. The paper used is beautiful, and the leather binding/workmanship really finishes well. I have purchased four of these bibles to date and have been extremely satisfied with the quality of each one received.

Format: Bonded Leather Verified Purchase
In this review I will endeavor to compare and contrast two rather similar bibles, which I own, published by Zondervan. They are: TNIV Reference Bible (Bible Tniv) and NIV Thinline Reference Bible, Large Print (2011). While they are quite similar in some ways, they also exhibit marked differences. I will begin with similarities and then give 6 key points in which they differ.

The Similarities:

Both bibles are nearly the same size, with the TNIV being slightly wider and thicker. This is somewhat surprising since the NIV 2011 is some 70 pages longer. More on this in the contrasts. Both are bound in black bonded leather. But here too there is a difference. Both have a ribbon marker and silver gilted edges. Both have columnar cross references, a concordance, a table of weights and measures, 8 pages of color maps and a word to the readers from the translation committee. So much for the similarities.

The Differences:

Binding: Although they both have bonded leather, the TNIV feels more supple and is more flexible than the NIV 2011 which has a distinct plastic-like feel about it. Perhaps it will soften up with use. The bonded leather binding does not allow either bible to lie flat from cover to cover. But herein is a significant difference. The TNIV will lie perfectly flat from about Gen 40 to the end of Rev. The NIV 2011 will only lie perfectly flat from Deut 1 to the end of Heb. Perhaps this will improve with time and handling too.

Page Thickness: The TNIV has real thin pages. The NIV 2011 has real, REAL thin pages.
