This just arrived in the mail today (only took about 3.5 business days for delivery) I was very pleased with the product. It is well constructed and has a classic look. The miraculous medal is in fact metal and looks great.
I purchased this bible because it has the zipper that will protect the pages when I put it in my backpack for traveling. It is the perfect size. Previously, I carried a small copy of the New Testament but it was getting pretty beat up in my backpack.
This is a nice size. If I lay the palm of my hand out flat, it covers most of my hand. The pages are thin, but really that's not at all different than most bibles. They have a nice feel.
I don't find the size of the font a problem at all. It is very readable to me, but I am a 40 year old male with no vision difficulty when it comes to reading...distance, that's another story :-) The font is certainly bigger than than you would find in those little Gideons bibles that are given out for free.
My only concern was that I felt it was a little pricey for a compact bible, especially when compared to similar non-compact bibles. All and all though, I'm very happy with it, and I'm sure you will like it.

I was surprised how legible (with reading glasses) this Bible is! It's great for travel/commuting, and bound with good bonded leather, gold edged pages and a satin ribbon. The price was right too. My only complaint is the imprinting ended up on 2 lines. But it's great nonetheless.

Great quality, and great price! Perfect size for personal devotions. One of the best translations of the Catholic Bible on the market today.
