This particular bible is very small, but for its size the print is very large. For an example I also have another HCSB Pocket-Size Bible that is about the same size, but the print is much smaller. I think that the type size of this Large Print Compact edition is about as big as print can be for a bible this size.
The quality of construction is very good for such an inexpensive bible. The magnetic clasp secures the book closed nicely without having to find a snap hole or a strap to close it.
If you want a very small bible, but have old eyes, and don't mind the type being a bit smaller - this is the best possible solution that I can recommend.
As for the translation, there are a few places that are not translated the way I'm used to with my NKJV and the other 11 translations that I have. It's all in the manuscripts used for the translation. HCSB uses 1-2 manuscripts rather than culling all the manuscripts for one translation so you don't have "some manuscripts omit" type of superscripts after a paragraph, although you do have references to other places in the Bible that discuss certain words and/or phrases which is extremely useful for the avid Bible student.
There is a concordance, along with maps, and discussions of the origin of words and what they meant in Jesus' day. These are also helpful for the avid Bible student.
This is an excellent Bible and very, very well worth the money!
