This was part of my wife's Christmas present, and she absolutely loves it. The cover is very sturdy and the binding appears to be strong enough to endure being used over many years to come.

The print is excellent for a compact Bible, and is very legible, even for someone like me who is half blind without wearing his glasses. The notes are generally very relevant and informative and are also equally legible. A note on Acts 23:34:

"The governor. Antonius Felix. The emperor Claudius had appointed him governor of Judea c. AD 52, a time when Felix's brother was the emperor's favorite minister. The brothers had formerly been slaves, then Freedmen, then high officials in the government. The historian Tacitus said of Felix, "He held the power of a tyrant with the disposition of a slave." He married three queens in succession, one of whom was Drusilla (see note on 24:24) from Cilicia. If Paul had come from a province nearby, Felix might have turned him over for trial under another's jurisdiction."

This Bible comes replete with maps and illustrations on geography, history, lineage, the life of Christ as well as a variety of other interesting topics and should be of a great help to the reader. Each of the 66 books features a summary and outline as well.

If you are looking for a study Bible that is portable, durable, and accessible, this one may fit your needs. Keep in mind that the NIV text, while generally very reliable, is not an extremely literal translation, and if you are looking for a highly literal translation, you may want to consider the ESV as a suitable candidate.

I really like the idea of Zondervan making this compact size bible. If you travel, the smaller size is very useful. For those who prefer a smaller size with all the goodies intact to take to a bible study, this is a good one. It has all of the information, maps, concordance, etc. that the standard size has. Some have complained about the small print size. It's a small compact bible! LOL Buy a magnifying glass or even better, buy reading glasses at any book store so you won't have to hold a magnifying glass. All in all, a great idea and good study bible. Another reviewer on this site named Watson got an incomplete bible without Genesis. For everyone's benefit, Amazon and Zondervan both guarantee their products which could've been exchanged with no hassel. Publishing errors with books do happen.

I'm very happy with this bible. Hopefully, Zondervan will publish the same compact bible in the NASB version.

This is a compact leather-bound version of the NIV Study Bible, with all the same notes, aids, etc.

I picked up this Bible because a friend had one, and I was intrigued by all the detailed insights and background information they were able to find on various texts. I wish I had had this Bible many years before - it's like having a seminarian standing by to answer your questions. Though I read other editions of the Bible, if I could only have one edition I would choose this one - I reach for it constantly to get explanations and background on various verses. The notes also are well-balanced, including different interpretations when this is the case. It is also filled with good illustrations/maps of buildings and places in the Bible. But the aid which I find most useful is the verse-finding "concordance" in the back, whereby if you know part of a verse but can't recall where it is, you can look up the verse by an alphabetical list of key words from the part you remember. This is a very handy aid to quickly find verses that you want to quote, as well as when you want to do a study on verses addressing various topics.

One evening I happened to be at the Family Christian Store in Sugar Land and they had this bible discounted. Along with my coupon I was able to get this bible for $17! What a deal! I have the large print version of this study bible and have found it to be an excellent study bible with fantastic supplementary material. So when I saw this "compact" version I became very interested. I am attending a Bible Study Fellowship in Houston and in our small group discussion classes we often have to juggle our binders with the BSF material along with our bibles and oftentimes it was awkward having a larger bible in my lap. However this bible is the perfect size and very easy to read even though the print is rather small. But with "reading glasses" as a previous reviewer suggested, this problem is easily remedied. The leather cover is aethetically appealing and the bible feels so comfortable for carrying to church, Sunday School or a Bible Study Fellowship. I still love all my "larger" bibles for use in my study but if I need to travel or go to a class this "compact" version fills the bill! The amazon price seems very reasonable but if you happen across a Christian bookstore with a good sale you can most likely get this bible for under $20!

I purchased this bible in a larger size several years ago and it has been invaluable to me. I ride a bus to work and it is impossible to carry the enlarged print version of this with me, and even though this compact version is not light weight (neither physically or spiritually), it is a great tool for my personal study as well as sermon preparation.
