Local Church Bible Publishers and Bearing Precious Seed are publishers that produce the KJV at cost. Both have similar build structure – calfskin and cowhide covers that are edge-lined. This is a quick look at two of the most popular Bibles from both publishers: the LCBP 180 and the BPS Hand Size. Both have 10-point fonts and are text only editions with a concordance. The LCBP 180 has a calfskin cover, includes maps, has thicker paper, and a darker print.

I like Bibles with study helps but I don’t always want commentary. Commentary messes with the layout. You might have 2 verses on one page and 20 on the next. Plus the Bibles can be huge and still have a small text. I don’t always need to carry the commentary with me. I love the Archaeological Study Bible, but I don’t need to carry that information around. For me, study Bibles are better for studying at your desk than carrying with you. What I would rather have with me is a topical index or dictionary. Word studies are good too....Read More
