Crossway’s newly released Large Print Thinline Bible is an attempt to provide an edition that’s both easy to read and easy to carry. It presents the 2016 ESV in an uncluttered layout without references. For this review, Crossway provided a genuine leather edition, ISBN: 9781433555961. __________________________________________ Buy from Amazon (includes affiliate link) __________________________________________ Binding My review edition is black genuine leather. It has a stamped grain that looks and feels nice. The front of the cover is clear of printing, while the spine has Holy Bible, ESV, English Standard Version, Crossway, and four bands printed in gold.

One of the most common complaints I’ve heard about journal Bibles is the small print. Most seem to be around 7-7.5 point, which can be difficult for middle-aged eyes like mine. Thankfully, Thomas Nelson has answered this problem with the Large Print KJV Journal the Word Bible. As its name implies, this is a large print journal edition that many will find more comfortable to read and use. Thomas Nelson provided this Bible free for review. I was not required to give a positive review – only an honest review. My opinions are my own. _____________________________________________________ Where to buy (includes some affiliate...Read More
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. The LPUT is a staple format for Holman. It’s one they’ve perfected and I’ve reviewed several in other translations, but this one has one major difference from all the others: an edge-lined goatskin leather cover. Note – This was an advanced copy, so there could be some minor editorial changes since it went to print. ____________________________ Buy from Amazon ____________________________ Features CSB (Christian Standard Bible)...Read More
Schuyler Bible’s first KJV was their own production of the TBS Westminster. The Canterbury is Schuyler’s first originally designed King James Version. It follows a similar pattern of their Quentel series but has a few design features that are unique in modern Bible publishing, creating a unique blend of old and new. 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
