I am fond of thin Bibles. They’re light, easy to carry, and easy to hold for long periods of time. This usually means thin paper that has way too much show-through, and far too often, small print. This isn’t the case with Thomas Nelson’s newest line of Comfort Print® Bibles. This line of Bibles focuses on font design. They’ve worked with 2K/Denmark to design three new typefaces: one for the KJV, one for the NKJV, and one for the NIV. In this review I’m taking a look at the new font in the large print thinline KJV in three...Read More

Holman has transitioned the HCSB to the newest version, called simply CSB, and now we can expect lots of new Bibles in this newest translation including this one: the Large Print Ultrathin Reference Bible.

Schuyler Bible’s first KJV was their own production of the TBS Westminster. The Canterbury is Schuyler’s first originally designed King James Version.

The design of the Canterbury makes me think of modern retro cars. Cars like the Mustang and Challenger are patterned after the classic designs but they have modern refinements. The Canterbury is patterned after the KJV’s of old, but with modern fonts and paper, making it feel...Read More
Review by Blake Ratliff (12/11/16) Introduction After wearing out a few bonded leather Bibles, I finally discovered a Christian book store that had some quality real leather Bibles and purchased my first study Bible: a Moroccan leather KJV Thompson Chain. This Bible has really lasted and I have refused to buy any bonded leather Bible ever since. In searching for a more compact reader’s Bible, I discovered Cambridge and got their standard text edition. It became my favorite Bible mainly due to the readability of the font and the feeling of quality. Over the years, I have become...Read More
Schuyler’s Canterbury KJV is available for pre-order with special pre-order pricing. It’s available in goatskin and calfskin and in several colors. It’s expected to ship in late December. The Canterbury uses the same 11-point Milo font and 36gsm paper as the NKJV Quentel that I reviewed previously. It will have a verse-by-verse format with Psalms in single column. You can pre-order here: Pre-Order Schuyler Canterbury KJV. ...Read More
