Reviews - What do our customers think?
Print Just Too Small  Oct 15, 2006
Unfortunately cannot always go by the publisher's description. The compact size of this edition is indeed very nice. However, the text is too small to make reading without a magnifying glass a comfortable experience. Too bad. I was really looking forward to an edition that lived up to the publisher's description.
Very Nice  Jun 23, 2004
I notice that most of the reviews are for the NKJV--of which I am also a fan--but I have the King James Version, ISBN: 0-7180-0132-x It is incredible that a complete Bible can come in such a small package. Beautiful, solidly built, readable print (small print but it is very dark, and that makes all the difference). The price is quite reasonable for a Bible of this quality. The only reason that I'm not giving it 5 out of 5 stars is because it does not include a ribbon marker, which is not only very handy, but is commonly included with most compact Bibles. The KJV is the "Gold Standard" in Bible translations. I do not think you will be disappointed with this Bible.
Yes Lord, Yes!  Jan 6, 2004
What a wonderful, highly readable bible at a great price! I am partial to the NASB for accuracy, but the NKJV is a great read too. This is a wonderfully sized bible that goes anywhere, fits the hand or coat pocket nicely, and is easy on the eyes. It has most of the features of far more expensive bibles.

You need to get into the Word to get the Word into you! In our convienience-based society, this bible is worth it's weight in gold!

An Excellent Bible if you Like 'Em Small!  Nov 3, 2002
It's hard to say enough good things about Nelson's great little idea. Oxford has a compact KJV out that is nice, but now that we're almost 400 years out from when King James was published in 1611, nothing is lost with the New King James Version. In fact, it seems a more accurate read, since this version corrects some of the inaccuracies in the KJV that were inaccurately translated from the Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew back then.

Although it's a paperback, the cover is made of very thick cardstock and lightly laminated, so it should be both resilient and durable for a good number of years under heavy use. The translators for this version include their footnotes at the bottom of the page; the words of Christ are actually in maroon instead of red, so it's far easier to see, especially if you're an older reader; the chapters have in-text subject headings; and finally there is a select concordance and dictionary at the back - all this in a book that fits neatly into your hand or pocket and is only 1.1 inches thick! Men seem to like small Bibles and I would give this one as a gift and I'm sure you'd get a positive reaction.

4.8 stars : The sacred eloquence, in portable form  Sep 19, 2002
This Compact Text edition of the NKJV is a marvel. With pages four-by-six, and its light weight, it is a very convenient and "carry-with-able" publication of the Scriptures.

Are there quibbles? The reviewer deplores the absence of the Apocrypha from most paperback mass-market Bibles, and finds two or three aspects of the translation less than pleasantly resonant ("compact" in Psalm 122; "weaned" in Psalm 131; "most assuredly, I say unto you" instead of "Amen, amen"). But the New King James Version -- theeless and thouless -- remains among the best of modern translations; it has fluent cadences that do not militate against the familiar and the traditional. It is comparable in its solemnity, in its seriousness, in its respectfully poetic renderings to the Revised Standard Version (RSV) and the New International Version (NIV). Readers who need the Jacobean pronouns and verb-forms may disagree.

The words of Christ are printed in red, or a kind of off-red, that is pleasantly emphatic without assaulting the eye. In the very back, there is a chart for daily readings, and a glossary of terms (both familiar and unfamiliar). Allow us to provide the NKJV version of Psalm 8, so that the prospective buyer might better discern if this be the aptest translation :

"O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!

"Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, because of Your enemies, that You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.

"You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen -- even the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea that pass through the paths of the seas.

"O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth!"

[Note, however : the text of the Psalms in this NKJV is written as verse, not as prose.]

For students and commuters, for inveterate readers and frequent flyers, for travellers and contemplatives -- this edition is highly recommended : for its conscientious translation, and its convenient portability, and its gloriously unprohibitive cost! Something of a gem.
