Crossway’s Heirloom series holds to a much higher level of premium, bringing them into the area of RL Allan, Schuyler, and Cambridge goatskin editions. They all have one key element in common – Jongbloed. The Single-column Legacy is the latest Bible to receive the Heirloom treatment. I recently contacted Crossway and told them I wanted to host a giveaway on Bible Buying Guide and asked if they were interested. They responded with a Yes! I expected them to offer an inexpensive TruTone edition. Little did I know they intended for me to give away a Single Column Legacy Heirloom...Read More

By Matthew Everhard It’s not every day that one buys a traditional “Pew Bible.” Let alone 100 or more Pew Bibles. When I purchased the ESV Pew and Worship Bible in black hardback for my congregation (250 of them if I recall) I hoped it would be the first and last time that I made such a voluminous acquisition. After all, the change was a pretty significant one for my church: we changed from the NIV to the ESV, and we went from blue covers (gasp!) to black covers. Actually, it wasn’t as bad as it seems. It was a seamless process, and we made a good buy that I think will last for another generation or more. Here’s a quick review if you are interested in learning more about this product. By the way, be sure to differentiate this Bible from the cheaper “value” pew Bible. Skip that one and make sure you get the tougher version reviewed here, ISBN: 978-1-58134-596-4.
