2012 saw a lot of amazing Bibles and we reviewed a few of them here at Bible Buying Guide. Here’s a quick look at the 2012 releases and links to our reviews: We started the year with the Cambridge Concord in calf-split leather, a fine specimen of Bible craftsmanship. This is a new cover for the original Concord. It’s much stiffer than calfskin and has a nice pebbly grain. It is a nice size and has a bold 8-point font. The red-letter is sharp and bold. The paper is very nice and opaque. The Concord has a great set of study tools with a glossary and dictionary, making the Concord a fine study and reading Bible. Hendrickson released the AW Tozer Bible that included over 500 selections from 40 volumes of writings from 20th century writer AW Tozer. Tozer’s writings are presented in three categories called On Scripture, Reflections, and Challenges. The AW Tozer Bible can be used as a study Bible and devotional Bible. New Leaf Press released the Henry Morris Study Bible, a large print study Bible with the focus on young earth creationism from the writings of Henry Morris. It includes commentary with a focus on creation and 22 appendixes that cover creation, science, the flood, the Bible, and more. One of our most popular reviews was the Cambridge Clarion ESV. It follows the layout design of...Read More
Crossway’s nice ESV Journaling Bible is now available in single column format.

The Writer’s Bible is a book, or compilation of books, of the Bible that’s made with the intent of journaling. This is a great concept because it promotes Bible study and working with the text. It’s available in KJV, ASV, and NASB. I’m reviewing Paul’s Letters in NASB, which includes Romans and 1st and 2nd Corinthians. Here are the major features: Thick paper for writing 12 point Garamond font Spiral bound Paragraph format End of chapter notes Section headings Book introductions OT quotes in all-caps 6 x 9 Price $15 Binding The Writer’s Bible is spiral bound so it lays flat. I like the spiral binding because it lays flatter than any Bible or journal that I own. It’s also easy to hold and handle. Layout The page of the left is the Bible and the page on the right is ruled for writing. The page layout is in paragraph format and is very easy to read. It has headings in the text and translation notes and the end of the chapter. Font The font is large print. The font is 12 point Garamond. It’s easy to read and it consistently dark. Old Testament quotes are in all-caps. I like OT quotes to look different from the rest of the text so I can quickly identify it. Paper This is the best paper in any Bible I’ve seen. It...Read More
