This is the bible that i have been searching for over many years. It is small but the print is a perfect size to read when on the move.This bible feels very comfortable in the hand, due to the extremely soft leather effect binding. It literally can fit into a coat pocket so describing it as compact is very accurate. I have used this on my travels and shall continue to carry it with me wherever i go. The only drawback is that it is not available to buy directly from Amazon, but i persevered and found a retailer. I am very happy with my purchase.
