I received a copy of the Holman NKJV Large Print Compact Reference Bible in black bonded leather promptly after requesting it.

The bonded leather is quite stiff.

That is to be expected on a small Bible like this.  The Bible did not come in a box, but rather a card-paper sleeve.  The spine is gilded as well are the page edges.

The cover is about six inches long, and four inches wide.

It looks to be an inch thick.

The older version of this that I have in the KJV was smyth-sewn, had decorative head and foot bands.  These are conspicuously missing in this newer iteration.

Being made in China could account for the lower production quality.

That isn’t to say that this isn’t a good value.  It appears that the binding is glued.  The Bible doesn’t as yet lay flat.  It might once it is broken in.  The inside is lined with black card-paper.

This also makes the cover a bit more stiff.  This Bible has 8 point font for the text which makes it very easy on the eyes for such a compact and small Bible.

It is very easy to hold and read.  For those of you who think the 8 pt font is too small, what are you doing getting a compact Bible anyways?  As with most compact Bibles the font is always going to border on the ridiculously small.  Again, at 8 pt. this is a great little Bible.  The paper is thick enough to endure use and not so transparent as to ghost horribly.

The text is printed clearly and sharply.  The print quality is pretty good for an inexpensive, “take anywhere Bible.”  This little Bible has a concise concordance and eight maps in the back.

This Bible does have a lifetime warranty.  Contrary to some descriptions this Bible does not include a reading plan.  I would recommend this Bible for anyone looking for an easy to transport and read Bible.
