The cover of the Bible is a very important feature and should be chosen carefully. I recommend buying the best cover you can afford. A badly made cover will greatly shorten the life of the Bible, whereas a Bible with a high quality cover has a better chance of lasting a life-time. Here is a short glossary of Bible cover terms. Smyth Sewn – also known as ‘Section Sewn’. This is the highest quality book-binding available. It is library quality and archival safe. The pages are physically sewn together in sections, known as signatures, using binders thread. Usually around 24 pages, the signatures are folded over to make individual sections of the book. The sections are then sewn together, creating the text block. The text block is then glued into the cover using a fabric backing, imitation leather, bonded leather, or real leather. Genuine Leather – pigskin. This is the cheapest and most popular of real leathers. Berkshire – pigskin. Another term for Genuine Leather. Bonded Leather – chopped ham. Left-over leather pieces are glued together using glues and resins to form a leather-like cover. In general, bonded leathers will not last. They tear apart under regular use. Like all leathers, there are various qualities of bonded leather. Cambridge uses 100% real leather fiber. Cambridge bonded leathers will outlast some genuine leathers. Calfskin – a higher quality leather used...Read More
There are plenty of Bibles to choose from with many features including various papers, fonts, formats, translations, covers, references, notes, etc. If I were able to ‘Build-a-Bible’ I know what my Bible would look like. It would be my dream Bible. Here’s what features I would choose: Size: About the size of a Cambridge Concord Wide-margin would suit me just fine at 7.25×9. Slightly larger would be fine. With everything I would like to add, the Bible would end up being from 2-2.5 inches thick. That would be perfect. Translation: I’m used to KJV, so I’ll stick with that. Margin: I want a wide-margin, but not a standard wide-margin. I don’t like writing on the inside margin. My favorite margin is the Note-takers from LCBP. It has one column of text on the inside of the page and a 2.5 inch margin on the outside of every page. That will do just nicely. Paper: I want the paper from the Cambridge Concord Wide-margin. It is the perfect thickness and opacity. It doesn’t have a shine or glare and has a slight cream tone, making it easier on the eyes. The paper from the Archaeological Study Bible is nice too. I like the texture in the background and on the edges of the hard-cover edition. Font: I want a 10 to 12 point font. As far as style of font...Read More
by Jonathan Ammon of Bible Reading Project The Fire Bible: Global Study Edition is a new edition of Hendrickson and Life publishers Fire Bible, aimed at filling the need for study Bibles in foreign countries around the world featuring the 1984 NIV text. The original Fire Bible was an edition derived from the Full Life and Life in the Spirit Study Bibles aimed specifically at students and those with less theological background. The Full Life Study Bible was originally published in 1992 and featured extensive study notes written Donald C. Stamps a missionary to Brazil ordained by the Assemblies of God. These notes were later edited and extended for a wider audience and republished as the Life in the Spirit Study Bible. This Bible was then republished as the Fire Bible with the intention of fulfilling Donald Stamps’s first ambition which was to provide an accessible study Bible for international pastors and lay workers in countries which had little access to study materials, and specifically pentecostal materials. The notes in the Life in the Spirit Study Bible were altered once more to exclude cultural bias or references, present information in a way that was accessible to those from any context, and reword the text to be easily translatable (the general content of the notes and articles is identical). This became the Fire Bible: Global Study Edition, perhaps the first...Read More
by Jonathan Ammon of Bible Reading Project Thomas Nelson’s New Spirit-Filled Life Bible, prepared by executive editor Jack Hayford, presents dynamic and extensive study tools within the New King James Version text and seeks to equip believers to build the kingdom of God through the Word. Though the label “study Bible” is not in the title, this edition of the Spirit-Filled Life Bible includes a wealth of biblical study tools in a unique format. The “Spirit-Filled” or Pentecostal and Charismatic focus has been integrated with a firm set of scholarly foundations and thorough study principles. These tools are given a presentation designed to inspire and equip the believer for practical living as well as deep biblical analysis. Hayford’s grounded approach presents a study Bible that emphasizes the continuing work of the Holy Spirit within a balanced presentation of biblical interpretation. BINDING This edition is available in a number of bindings and its continued popularity prompted last year’s release of a new imitation leather edition. The genuine leather edition possesses a glossy finish and a fine grain. Most genuine leather is pigskin and this edition’s binding is comparable to the other genuine leather editions on the market. Its thickness and softness are about average for genuine leather; however its flexibility is above average. While it does not compare to calfskin or cowhide, the price is far less and this remains...Read More
