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...Read More

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...Read More
Even though there are have been variations in features, many publishers have had a KJV Ruby. And for good reason – it’s a small handy size with a sharp readable font. The TBS Royal Ruby Text Bible is a text-only compact KJV that’s available in a wide range of bindings. I’m reviewing the black calfskin with zipper and thumb-index. It’s produced for TBS by Cambridge and includes the familiar TBS additions. Like other TBS editions that I’ve reviewed, it comes in a nice slip case. _____________________________________ Buy from TBS _____________________________________ Features Text-only KJV Calfskin with zipper Opposing thumb...Read More
Hendrickson’s KJV Thinline Reference Bible is a low-end thinline with some no-nonsense features that many will appreciate. I like thinlines because they’re easy to carry, but unfortunately most low-end editions skimp on paper and print quality. They’re also usually glued. That’s not the case with this Hendrickson. To get this price it does make a few sacrifices. Are they worth it? Absolutely. In this review I’m taking a look at the imitation edition (ISBN: 9781619709591 provided for free by Hendrickson). _________________________________ Buy from (includes some affiliate links) Amazon Barnes & Noble and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________ BINDING The cover is...Read More

In this tutorial we’ll take a look at the tools and step through both types of repairs. First, let’s look at the tools. Then we’ll see how to repair Bible pages using the tools. First, I’d like to say a special thank you to my wife Lucinda for fixing my Bibles 🙂 Paper Repair Tools Tools I recommend are (contains affiliate links to help us keep this...Read More
