This is how you buy a Bible, give a Bible and introduce a friend to the Bible; all without embarrassing them with its huge size.
It’s thoughtful and courteous to consider how new-to-faith and no-faith-yet friends might feel when given a Bible and later found in possession of it by non-Christian friends. This ‘Tiny Bible’ is a gift that doesn’t overstate itself or intrude. It’s less than five and half by four inches in old money, so can be read when wanted, carried when necessary and secreted away in pockets and bags protecting the early flowering of faith from those who may mock.
And when ready, it’s a Bible to be seen with that offers an opportunity for confident witness. In soft feel, gentle pink, zip-up covers and embossed with butterflies it’s practically all things to all girls and women (and men) who like pink. Yes, it only has a 5 point font size and not much in the way of extra resources, but with silver-edged pages, pink ribbon marker and a co-ordinated presentation box, it’s an easy gift to give that travels well, reads well enough and works very well for someone you want to point carefully towards God’s book without overwhelming them from the start.
