The EOB New Testament Portable is a unique and beautifully typeset edition of New Testament and intended for maximum portability. It is bound in burgundy manufactured leather, and includes a zippered closure. This zippered casing protects the page edges and allows you to carry this New Testament in your backpack, purse, laptop bag, etc.

This dual column edition is offset printed on superior 35gsm bible paper with gilded edges, rounded corners, and two page marker ribbons. This beautiful, lightweight, compact and portable edition is 12cmx18cm [4.7inx7.1in].


The EOB New Testament … is based on the official ecclesiastical text published in 1904 by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (again documenting all significant variants to the Critical Text, Majority Text and Textus Receptus). It also provides extensive footnotes. The Patriarchal text was selected on Mount Athos from among a large number of reliable ecclesiastical manuscripts and appears to be identical or similar to Minuscule 1495 (KR subgroup). The main purpose of the EOB is to provide an accurate and easy-to-read English text of the Holy Scriptures that is suitable for use by Orthodox Christian communities and individuals, while providing an outstanding text for scholars.

Note that this edition does not include the appendices found in other editions of the EOB.

    Portable EOB

    I love this translation and I love the quality of the book! Very happy with this, thank you newrome press. EOB is a great translation that I wish was more widely available. The only thing I would have changed about this is making the words of Christ in red, but it's not a big deal.

    Perfect for travel

    Published by Ive on Dec 12th 2023

    I will soon be traveling but didn’t want to take my full-sized Bible. This lovely NT is small and thin, and best of all—you can actually fit a small notebook inside the zipper! Either A6 or a slim B6. Highly recommended despite the high price. I prefer this one more than the New Testaments on Amazon, which aren’t for the Orthodox tradition. For that reason alone, the price was worth it

    Very nice construction

    Published by Sean Fitzgerald on Nov 28th 2023

    This is a little larger than other pocket New Testament books I've encountered, so while the pages are thin like the others the text is a bit larger and more readable. The cover being fully enclosed with the zipper is a nice way to protect the pages. A very minor specific detail that I nonetheless appreciate is that the two ribbon bookmarks are thick enough that the zipper does not snag them but instead sweeps them up into the cover.

    Beautiful Compact New Testament

    Published by Tyler on Mar 6th 2023

    This New Testament is fantastic. It's super slim and is almost unnoticeable in my bag. The print is super clear and easy to read even for it's small size. The artwork is beautiful. The footnotes and translation is superb. My only minor complaint is the way the zipper is attached, it's easy for it to catch the pages and makes turning pages slightly trick. I've had other zippered bibles that didn't have this issue. Even with that minor issue, this New Testament is well worth getting.
