These are great to pass out for an outreach ministry. Easy to read and use. We order them all the time and are very pleased with them for the price. Just the right size to carry in a backpack or purse. A great way to put the Bible in others hands for his Glory.

If your plan to use this to give to people so that they will use it as their primary Bible, then do not waste your time or money. The paper is incredibly thin and feels like it was printed on re-re-recycled newspaper. However, the back and front covers are attractive.
However, for the purpose of Evangelism, it's an outstanding value. It comes with quite a bit of material for its size and cost. It's certainly a Bible I would purchase and pass out again and is the best in its class, far better than what the Gideons distribute, even with its poor paper quality.

This bible exceeded my expectations. I especially appreciate the section that helps reader understand where the new testament begins in relationship to the old testament. The section that helps the reader find a starting place, with reading plan suggestions is most helpful and last but not least, the place to turn when flooded with certain emotional challenges.
This bible is a must for every evangelist. I would reccomend keeping 20 or so in your car at all times.
In Christ

This is a nice size book with pleasant graphics and fonts. We gave them out to the public during an outreach. I liked the book introductions but would have preferred that the other extra material had been left out.

I appreciate being able to give this New Testament to people who come to our Church Food Bank and are having many problems. I highlight many verses in each Bible to help some who have never read Scripture to find some of the important scriptures of the New Testament. OVer the past few years we have given out about 300 N.T.s and pray that they get read by each of them.

We happened upon a sale and were quite pleased at our savings. We use the NT's to hand out at free food distribution on Saturday. It is spiritual food. The ESV is clear and accurate. The size is just right. We hope to need more in the future.

This Bible is great for purchasing in bulk and keeping on hand for people who don't have an easy to read translation of the Bible or may not have one at all. They are big enough that the average person shouldn't have a problem reading the text, yet they're small enough that they can be toted. The features are an excellent addition for first time Bible readers and even for those familiar with the Bible. The price is unbeatable making it that much easier to spread God's word!

I bought this item in bulk to hand out in the community. I chose this item over the others offered because I like that the ESV is in the word-for-word translation group, and that this item contains introductions at the beginning of each book to allow the reader to understand who wrote it, when it was written, who the original recipients were, and why it was written/a brief summary. There are also sections on "God's plan to save you" and a "reading plan schedule". The book seems pretty durable if it is taken care of and if you buy them in bulk (I think 10 or more) the price drops a little lower for you. I was very happy with this item.

I wanted to give Bibles to a large group of children who didn't have Bible in their homes. I could afford this and know that this little New Testament will be a blessing to many. Font is small, but the parents can read this.

We have bought and given away more than 1200 of these cheap new testaments in the past 18months.
The paper quality is what you would expect for the price and it is well printed - a clean and readable font. There is a small paragraph introduction to each book/letter of the new testament which is helpful for those who have never read the NT before (i.e. the market this product is aimed at).
There is a explanation of how the ESV came about, a 6month reading plan and some other helpful aids included.
However, it's the ADDITION to God's word that I have difficulty with. Here some man's opinion is inserted to tell the reader how to be saved - it's clearly adding to the word, beware ("Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar." Proverbs 30:6 ESV). We normally tear these pages out, preferring to give people the pure, uncontaminated word of God.
Lastly, it's unfortunate that CBD don't sell this product at a bulk discount.

If you're looking for accuracy, readability, adherance to the Gospel and a reading experience which glorifies God FOR ALL AGES (except perhaps very young, under six, readers) this is IT. The New Testament for kitchen counter, dorm room, office, or just carried around for spur of the moment reads. Children will learn good Bible words, titles, names, stories. Buy this for your church giveaway.
