First I would like to point out that if you look at the "Product Description", it states "Text Size: 5-7 Point", and in "Features" it also states "7 point", as it appears another buyer missed this and gave the Bible a poor review because the point was below 8 and that it wasn't listed, so the poor rating was undeserved. I highly recommend reading the description to ensure you will not be disappointed upon receipt.
This is a fine Bible, and I was so impressed with it that I bought the Compact size as well for carrying with me for evangelizing or just personal reference when needed. Given the small size of both Bibles I felt they did a great job with fitting all the material into such small packages, including extras such as the concordance with nearly 6,000 references. I did purchase tabs but that is a matter of personal preference.
In all this is a great quality Bible with a beautifully embossed Crown of Thorns on a pebbled soft leather-look cover. The Personal size (this one) is single column while the Compact has double, again, personal preference. I would recommend this Bible to everyone.

The ESV is an excellent translation. The Personal Size, however, has too small a print (7.4) for comfortable reading. Unfortunately, this fact was not listed in the "Features" in the ordering catalogue. Otherwise I would not have purchased this particular Bible. A font size minimum of 8.0 would have been acceptable. i have returned the ESV Personal Size Bible for a refund.
