GTL Sanford Bible Dry Pencil

I love highlighting in my Bibles. Not all Bibles – I want to keep some of them clean for reading, but for study, teaching, and preaching it can be extremely useful. I’ve tried many pens, pencils, and highlighters over the years and some work much better for Bible paper than others. This requires lots of testing just to see if a pen or marker is usable in a Bible. GT Luscombe solves this problem by providing marking tools that are made specifically for Bibles. In this review I’m taking a look at a Bible highlighting kit called GTL Sanford Bible...

Crossway’s The Greek New Testament

The Greek New Testament was produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge. It was a 10 year project created under the oversight of Dr. Dirk Jongkind and Dr. Peter Williams and is a revision of a Greek New Testament from the nineteenth century by Samuel Prideaux Tregelles. They led a team of scholars to reevaluate the manuscripts in order to create this edition. They looked at everything from spelling to paragraph choices, and considered recent discoveries of the scribal habits of the earliest manuscripts. This New Testament was produced by both Cambridge and Crossway. I’m reviewing the Crossway edition, ISBN: 9781433552175. Crossway provided this Greek New...

Hendrickson’s ESV Fire Bible Review

Hendrickson’s Fire Bible (an improvement of the Full Life Study Bible / Life in the Spirit Study Bible) is a popular study Bible with a Pentecostal focus. This Bible has been produced in several translations over the years and is now available in another popular translation – the English Standard Version (ESV). In this review I’m taking a look at the softcover edition, ISBN: 9781619701519, made in China. This edition uses the 2011 ESV text. Hendrickson provided this Bible free for review. I was not required to give a positive review, only an honest one. All opinions are my own....

Authorized – The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible – Review

Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible by Dr. Mark Ward is a book about whether or not today’s society should use the KJV as a primary translation. He uses lots of situational stories to demonstrate his points and provides lots of examples from Scripture. In this 154 page book, Dr. Ward discusses the KJV with the utmost respect. He isn’t attacking anyone (including KJV-onliests). He isn’t criticizing the KJV translators. He’s respectful of them. Dr. Ward is 100% positive toward the quality of the KJV and the translators. What the Book Covers Mark Ward covers the...

Thomas Nelson Giant Print KJV Reference Bible – Review

Thomas Nelson has continued to replace their older editions with their new Comfort Print typeface. My latest edition is the Giant Print KJV Reference Bible. This is a large print KJV along the lines of the Longprimer or Turquoise, but with inexpensive materials making it a great choice for the low-end market. I’m reviewing the bonded (it’s actually imitation – it was marked incorrectly at Amazon) leather edition, ISBN: 9780785215288, made in China. _________________________________________________________ This book is available at (includes some affiliate links) Amazon Books-A-Million Church Source Thrift Books and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________________________________ This Bible was purchased for review.
