Guys Slimline Bible NLT, TuTone
Guys Slimline Bible NLT, TuTone published by Tyndale is the perfect sized bible to take with you or to read while at home. This slim sized bible features an attractive flexible cover with a bold contrast of black leatherette with a textured blue accent. While this book is marketed for teen-aged "guys", once you pull of the outer packaging, there is no specific designation or identification on this bible to limit it to either teens or males. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I, a middle aged adult could actually use this bible for my own personal use- as I found the marketing aimed at young males to be too limiting for this versatile bible. Even though it features bold colors and silver gilded edges, I feel this bible design is just as suitable for females as well as adults of all ages. This design has universal appeal for a wide contemporary audience with its modern minimalist design. The text is a standard sized, and the ultra thin pages keep this bible slim and light. This plain text bible does not feature any extra articles or devotionals- which is fine if you are looking for a light weight bible. The New Living Translation is a great translation- true and faithful as well as easy to understand. For those who read their bibles a lot- this will be an advantage as it is easy to hold for extended periods of time. As a blogger I recieved a copy of this bible for the purpose of writing this review.
