A few remarks on my new Pocket Bible

(click pictures to enlarge)

A Bible that fits into your pocket is a handy Bible to have. I bought one back in 2009 before I went to Mexico so I’d have one to read on the plane, beach, etc. This little Bible was great and I really enjoyed reading from it. When I got back from Mexico I ended up giving it away and I have missed using it ever since. A few weeks ago I decided to buy another one and found more Bibles to choose from. I wanted the Bible to be the Authorized (kjv) version and inexpensive. After doing a little searching I found one with an interesting cover…it has a tattoo like design on the front.

When weather permits I like to take my banjo, harmonica and mandolin outdoors to play and this little Bible will fit into my gig bag easily. It will accompany me on my trips to the park or cemetery next time I head out. Over the years I’ve had plenty of opportunities to proclaim the Gospel in this kind of setting and it would be nice to have a Bible on hand. The text is small but readable. It has a harmony of the Gospel and it’s supposed to have a one year Bible reading plan but I can’t find it. One of the draw backs would be the words of Christ in red and the cover being white / charcoal grey. This Bible will probably get a little dirty after some use but it was only $20 bucks and I intend to wear it out in the next 6 months or so. The paper has a little ghosting but I can live with that. The cover is made of a cloth material that has a nice feel in the hand. Overall I’m pleased with my purchase. To find out more the product details are listed below.
