Crossway’s Large Print Thinline Bible Review

  Crossway’s newly released Large Print Thinline Bible is an attempt to provide an edition that’s both easy to read and easy to carry. It presents the 2016 ESV in an uncluttered layout without references. For this review, Crossway provided a genuine leather edition, ISBN: 9781433555961. __________________________________________ Buy from Amazon (includes affiliate link) __________________________________________ Binding My review edition is black genuine leather. It has a stamped grain that looks and feels nice. The front of the cover is clear of printing, while the spine has Holy Bible, ESV, English Standard Version, Crossway, and four bands printed in gold. It...

Interview with Tim Chaffey

I recently revisited the Ark Encounter for their one-year anniversary to see what they’ve added. As I arrived at the media tent there stood Tim Chaffey, Content Manager of the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum, and author of several books. He also posed for a figure of a giant (which isn’t much of a stretch for Tim, although the real giants would still make him look small). I wasn’t letting the opportunity to interview Tim again to pass me by (see last year’s interview here). Here’s the interview: I always enjoy talking with Tim Chaffey. If you see...

The purpose of Immerse is to create a setting that would allow the reader to be immersed in the Word of God by taking away the distractions and presenting the text in the most readable layout possible. Immerse is a six-volume set of the NLT. Tyndale provided me...

Coming Soon – Slimline Longprimer

Coming soon from R.L. Allan is a new slimline Longprimer called the 43. The Longprimer (see our review of the 53 in brown here) is a staple in the premium KJV market. It was recently updated with a cleaner scan and is now available in several covers and a larger edition with wide outer margins called the 63 Longprimer Sovereign (see a guest review here). With the recent paper improvements the Longprimer has been getting larger. There are still a market for those who prefer thinner Bibles. I still like the 32gsm edition that I reviewed years ago because...

Ark Encounter One Year Anniversary

Last year when the Ark Encounter opened to the public it was actually phase one of many for the park. While the ark itself was complete and some of the landscaping was done, there was still a lot of work to do. They’ve been busy for the last 12 months finishing up the landscaping and adding lots more. To celebrate the Ark Encounter’s first anniversary we returned to tour the ark and see what’s been added over the last 12 months. As nice as it was when it opened, it’s seen a lot of improvements. Here’s a look at...
