What Do Older Eyes Think of Think of the Compact Edition of The Lutheran Study Bible?
Read the comment we received for yourself…..and then, if you want one, head on over here to get one.
I just wanted to write to let you know how amazingly pleased I am – thrilled, really – with the compact edition of The Lutheran Study Bible I ordered.
I have the regular-sized edition in the hard copy and have the Kindle version as well (which is also great), but really wanted a physical version that I could hold and carry more easily with me. For my every day reading and personal study I have grown to love the NASB, but I like the ESV translation as well and use them side-by-side. The articles and study notes in TLSB are just wonderful. But as someone with over-40 eyes now, I was afraid to order the compact edition. I debated and debated. I actually have trouble reading the regular size version because of some bleed-through, so I was very hesitant to order. But I did, and I am so glad. The Bible text is beautifully easy to read, even without magnifying lenses, and although it’s easier with glasses I can read the notes as well – and I can even make out the footnotes and cross-references if I really try! That’s not a criticism – I need glasses more and more now but can still read this text. And unlike the smaller version of Crossway’s ESV Study Bible, you have included all of the articles and notes and references from the original! That is amazing! And it’s not unmanageably thick, either – it fits very comfortably in hand. And to top it all off, it’s pink! (I know that’s probably a bit controversial with some other customers, but it’s my favourite colour and it is really a beautiful binding.)
All this to say – thank you for this wonderful edition. I was so hesitant to order and afraid it wouldn’t work for me, but as I said I am just thrilled and wanted to let you all know.
