Here’s a quick comparison between three of my favorite Cambridge KJV’s: Concord, Large Print Text, and Cameo. The Concord and Cameo both have 8-point fonts. The Large Print Text has a 10-point. I love all three equally and use them for different purposes. I’ve preach from all three and all three are great in the pulpit. I usually prefer to preach from larger fonts and consider the Large Print Text to be the best for preaching. The Cameo is by far the best for carry. If you want to do any detailed study the Concord is the best choice...Read More

When the Bible Buying Guide crew (all four of us) recently attended the International Christian Retail Show in Orland, we got the meet the folks at Whitaker House – the publishers of the KJVER Sword Study Bible (my wife attended their press conference while I attended a meeting that I had previously scheduled. Fortunately I got to meet them earlier). Their passion for this Bible was amazing. Whitaker House recognizes the need to make the KJV more accessible to those that have trouble reading it and they’ve made it their mission to fill that need. I’ve always thought the...Read More
The Personal Cambridge Concord is a smaller version of one of Cambridge’s most popular KJV’s: the Concord. This one has all the tools of the regular edition, but is that a good idea in such a small package? Something that little can’t be readable or useful can it?

Local Church Bible Publishers and Bearing Precious Seed are publishers that produce the KJV at cost. Both have similar build structure – calfskin and cowhide covers that are edge-lined. This is a quick look at two of the most popular Bibles from both publishers: the LCBP 180 and the BPS Hand Size. Both have 10-point fonts and are text only editions with a concordance. The LCBP 180 has a calfskin cover, includes maps, has thicker paper, and a darker print. The BPS Hand Size has a cowhide cover, a sharper font with better spacing between the letters and words,...Read More
Review of Cambridge Concord Reference KJV in Black Calf Split By Matthew Everhard “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile.” So says the famous automobile advertisement. In every field and market, there exists a tension between the ancient and the modern. The time-honored and the cutting edge. There is a perpetual tug-of-war between “the way it has always been done” and new technologies and innovations that make the former way obsolete. Rarely does a product or design balance both so effectively. Enter the KJV Cambridge Concord Reference Bible. Before us today, we have a Bible that superbly combines the...Read More
