I wanted to sample the ESV translation, so I ordered this Testament. I was surprised that such a quality little (partial) Bible can be had for under $5! The cover is a beautiful dark blue soft synthetic leather (which I prefer over stiff bonded leather), and the page edges are silver gilt. It includes introductions to each book, a reading plan, a section about God's plan, where in the Bible to look for help, what the New Testament says about some topics, and a section about the ESV translation. It is a black letter edition and does not have a ribbon marker or presentation page.
This is a nice coat pocket size New Testament which also includes Psalms and Proverbs. It is a thin and lightweight volume, but in no way looks cheap. It has a sewn binding. Its dimensions are about 6" x 4" x under 1/2". It's in double column paragraph format with verse numbers and a few footnotes. The text print is of course small, but dark and surprisingly readable for its size (6.4 pt). I have corrected vision and can read it in good light.
So far, I also like the ESV translation. It is said to be one of the more literal word for word translations. It retains some of the literary majesty of the KJV while also being very readable. Psalm 23, for example, changes only a few words such as "leads" for "leadeth" and "overflows" for "runneth over."
This would make an excellent inexpensive gift. It's a beautiful, quality compact Testament.

I thought this would fit in my pants pocket but it only fits in some of them. My 5 1/4 inch pocket testament fits in all trousers. I am enjoying the ESV very much.
