A reader shared pictures of his AMG Giant Print NASB that Leonard’s rebound in their 17th Century Parsons style hard cover. These pictures were so amazing that I had to share them (with his permission of course). The pouch was a custom order from Renaissance Art. Now I know what I want my KJV AMG to look like. Can you guess what kind of leather it is? Scroll down for the answer. Leonard’s calls this leather rustic spindled goatskin. It’s a winner in my...Read More

The handy size giant print format strikes a perfect balance for a Bible that’s easy to carry and read for those, like me, who prefer large typefaces with an overall size that’s still easy to manage. They don’t have a lot of space for extras, so they usually have either end-of-verse references or no references at all. I like this because the focus is on the text where it belongs. The text doesn’t have to share horizontal space with columns of tools that I only use every now and then. This makes for a much more readable text. The...Read More

Personal size giant print Bibles is one of my favorite categories. Bibles in this category are not meant to be the ‘everything’ Bible. They’re meant to give you a nice giant print in an overall size that’s easy to carry and use. This review takes a look at the NKJV Personal Size Giant Print Reference Bible from Thomas Nelson. This one is the pretty purple imitation leather edition without gilted edges and ribbons. Cover and Binding This is a personal size edition at 8.75 x 5.5 x 1 1/8. The cover is polyurethane with a paper liner. The cover...Read More
Personal size Bibles are great for carry. Large print editions are some of the most popular choices for preachers. Not so much to study from, but if they have a good enough print and lay flat they can be good Bibles to preach from. The Personal Size Giant Print Reference Edition KJV from Thomas Nelson just might serve both of those purposes well at an affordable price. Cover and Binding This is a personal size edition at 8.75 x 5.5 x 1 1/8. The cover is polyurethane with a paper liner. It feels stiff and thin and tends to stay open a little bit after it’s been opened for a while. It does lay flat just after Genesis. Much to my surprise, the binding is sewn. I did not expect a sewn binding in a Bible at this price point. It doesn’t want to stay open except from Deuteronomy through Acts, but with enough use it will likely break in. I don’t think the cover would last long with good use, but at this price range it’s not bad. Paper and Print The paper is thin but not too thin. It has a slight rough texture, which makes me think it would be good for marking. It actually has a good level of opacity. The lines match up on most pages – adding to the readability. The font is...Read More
