The New King James Version has always held a special place in my heart. My very first review Bible I ever received was a hard cover NKJV in 1984 and I’ve been in love with the translation ever since. Even though it’s a popular translation it hasn’t gotten a lot of quality editions. Schuyler fixes this problem with their NKJV Quentel. In this review I take a look at the NKJV Quentel in black goatskin. Like all Schuyler’s it comes in a nice box for storage (all of mine stay in their boxes).

There are not many single-column paragraph KJV’s on the market. When a new one comes along I take notice. I long for a layout that sets the text in a pretty layout. That’s something the KJV almost never gets. It doesn’t have to have section headings, references, or even verse numbers. Recently I’ve wanted a paragraph KJV without verse numbers. I don’t always want markings that slow down readability and comprehension. Local Church Bible Publishers’ latest Bible is a single-column paragraph in large print with no verse numbers. It costs $57. Let’s take a look. UPDATE – After posting...Read More
The Schuyler NKJV Quentel, arriving sometime in February or March, is now available for pre-order. Each edition of the Quentel makes improvements on the last. This one will include the expected typography but will add a red-letter option, raised spine hubs, and new maps. It will also have thinner paper, but at 36gsm it should still be very thick for Bible standards. The red letter looks a lot like the earth-tone red used for the chapter numbers. It’s available in goatskin with a leather liner and in several colors including black, dark green, dark brown, imperial blue, and firebrick red....Read More
The TBS Comfort Text is a licensed reprint of the Collins Iona Clear Type Octavo from 1957. It’s a text-only KJV in hard cover with 2 ribbons. It comes in black or brown. I’m reviewing the brown which has two brown ribbons to fit the color scheme. ISBN: 9781862283473. Binding The Comfort Text is a hard cover edition that’s covered in brown vinyl. The brown is about a medium-dark with gold lettering stamped into the cover and spine. The vinyl provides a nice grainy texture. I love the way it looks and feels. It’s sewn and includes decorative head...Read More
