Unbelievable. That’s exactly how I reacted when I saw this. I need to give you a little background before I review: I purchased this exact Bible 5 years ago, but in genuine leather (pigskin most likely). My primary Bible is a NASB but being a good Baptist, I always keep a KJV at the ready (I use it almost as much as NASB). That Bible literally came apart at the seams so, since Holman has a lifetime warranty, I trekked off to Lifeway to inquire about a replacement and much to my shock found out I could pay the difference and get this as a warranty exchange. On to the review: This is without a doubt one of the most well put together Bibles I have ever owned. From the moment you open the box and catch that new leather smell, it exudes quality. The leather is among the softest and most supple I have ever touched (and my dad and I have done more than a few leather projects together.) In fact, the leather is so pleasing to the hand that the best way to describe it is with the nearly cliche “soft as baby’s skin” and though not marketed as calfskin, rather as cowhide, I would not be the least bit surprised if it were calfskin. 14 point font. Can we say spectacular? There is one size...Read More

By Matthew Sherro This is my most important and, consequently, emotional review I have undertaken because this review comes on the heels of me doing something that has not happened in 18 years and likely will not happen again for an equally long time, changing the English version that I use for my primary ministry Bible. Since 1996 I have carried an NASB with me on a daily basis (almost 2/3 of my life) and I intend to continue using NASB until the Lord calls me home since it cannot be beaten when it comes to literalness in translation....Read More
Last year I reviewed the R. L. Allan NKJV in black highland goatskin. This year I decided to review the Holman edition that the Allan is based on – the Holman NKJV Large Print Ultrathin Bible. It is the same text-block but this edition is much more affordable. I have to say I like it better at this price-point. Where Allan’s edition is goatskin, Holman’s highest quality cover is genuine cowhide. The edition I’m reviewing is brown genuine cowhide with thumb-index. Pros Cowhide Sewn binding 9-point font Light weight Cons No index to maps Features NKJV Sewn binding Brown...Read More
