The font size is still quite readable due to a great typeset and arrangement of the text and chapter and verse numbers. There is minimal ghosting on a nice bright white paper. I have smaller difficulties reading it than I do another bible I bought in similar size with a font size 2 points larger. It's not just the size of the font, it's the thickness and color of the page and how the lines and spacing is arranged that makes a text readable.
I also appreciate that the cover, while simple, feels well made. There's nothing fancy about this bible. But it's design is almost perfect. The dimensions, weight, and text are all just right in both one hand or two. This is a highly readable translation in a highly readable bible. I look forward to putting it to good use in the days ahead. In fact, I plan to buy several more copies to give out just because this is such a good implementation for such a small price.
