The Bibles were a gift for our youth who were confirming. The Bible itself is nice, a good size to carry around and containing helpful notes. The names I requested to be inscribed on the paper covers were accurate and well done.
My only complaint is that the Bibles were not well protected for transport so they had some scuffs, dents, and ruffled pages when they got to me. Other than that, a good product.

I purchased this for my wife, and the text is entirely too small for her to use. She wears glasses that correct her vision to average font size, but this is not convenient for her since she would have to have different correction. It was not apparent from the "compact" label that the font was so small. I wanted the compact feature to carry to Bible study, but it just wouldn't work.
