The NIV Blue Patterned Thinline Bible is the perfect balance: easy to read, easy to carry and Ora Kiely look-alike style.
In the Orla Kiely look-alike blue patterned cloth, this ‘firm-back’ NIV is the most stylish thinline Bible you can get. In fact, it looks like something designed for Marks or Dagenham’s rather than the world’s most popular Bible translation. No bigger than a purse and only one inch thick, it slips neatly into a handbag, briefcase or laptop case and looks like it lives there.
The covers are firm but not rigid with a natural cloth feel. The striking red ribbon marker is a practical feature and so is the fine sewn binding which lets the Bible lie flat without breaking the spine – a sign of quality in a Bible this small.
The latest 2011 NIV text is in a comfortably readable 7.25 point which means the paper has to be a little on the thin side to earn the Thinline label. But then you do get a good range of extras too. A presentation page, shortcuts to encouraging and key stories, together with a daily reading plan and concordance, make this a gift of a Bible for any woman of style and discernment – experienced Bible reader, Christian, or those new to faith.
