October is pastor appreciation month. Many congregations like to buy something special for the pastor and his or her family. Here’s a short list of suggestions that pastor’s are sure to appreciate. Just like buying a gift for anyone, make sure you know your pastor’s likes, dislikes, and needs before making a purchase. Prices for these gifts vary widely, but there’s something here for every budget. Disclaimer – some of these suggestions include affiliate links to help us keep this website running.

Schuyler’s personal size edition of the KJV Canterbury is in the editing stage and they hope to have it available in spring 2018. This edition will be red letter. They’ve retained the red drop caps. This edition will have thinner paper than the regular edition and will not include a concordance. It will include maps. The glossary will depend on how small the font becomes when they shrink it. I suspect it will be too small to be useful. Time will tell. You can read our review of the regular Canterbury in calfskin here. You can purchase a Canterbury...Read More
The Cambridge NKJV Pitt Minion Reference Bible is a nice little reference Bible in the popular Pitt Minion setting from Cambridge.

I was not in any way influenced by the publisher to give...Read More
A Bible that I’ve been looking forward to from Cambridge is the KJV Turquoise Reference Edition. The Turquoise was originally published in the 1920’s and has been a popular reference edition among those who prefer large print.

The new edition will have the words of Christ while on earth in red letter. It includes a sewn binding with either goatskin or calf-split leather, India paper (I suspect it will be the same paper as the current...Read More
Crossway’s ESV Journaling Bible, Writer’s Edition, is different from most journal Bibles. Most place the text in either a double or single column with a large outer margin for notes and artwork. They usually have close to a square shape. Keeping a slim width while presenting a double-column layout, the Writer’s Edition places the writing space at the bottom of the page. In this review I take a look at the hardcover edition in black, ISBN: 9781433552809, which Crossway provided for free. _________________________________ Buy from (includes affiliate links) Amazon _________________________________ Cover and Binding My review copy has a black hardcover...Read More
