My take on this Bible:
If I had to describe this Bible in one word it would be elegant. A beautiful Bible that has a butter soft feel, with silver edged pages. Not as big as a full sized Bible but not as compact as a personal version. The size would make this perfect for carrying  in a purse or backpack.  What I would really recommend this Bible for is a wedding gift or even an anniversary gift. When you open the Bible the first page you see is a presentation page and then when you turn the page there is a place for a wedding photo. There is also a place to record your marriage, as well as a couple of pages specifically used for recording information about the wedding party, along with a spots for pictures. There is a mini concordance included in the back as well as several maps. A bonus feature is the fact that the words of Jesus appear in red.
My only complaint would be the tiny print used, while I understand tiny print needed to be used because of the compact size, for me personally it would be a factor if I decided to use this Bible. Overall I think it would make a perfect gift, and I could easily see it becoming a family heirloom. 
A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided by Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.
