Immerse Messiah Bible Review

  Immerse Poets is the 5th book in the six-volume Immerse Reading Bible Set, a version of the NLT designed by Glenn Paauw (see our interview here) to provide a Bible that is distraction free and enjoyable to read. Randy’s review of the first volume printed, Immerse Messiah, can be found here. Immerse Poets contains both the books of songs (Psalms, Lamentations, Song of Songs) and the wisdom writings (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Job) from the Old Testament. Tyndale provided me with a free review copy. I was not required to give a positive review, only an honest one. All opinions are...

A KJV that focuses on reading is something I’ve wanted for a long time. The Holman is very much their KJV version of the Crossway ESV Reader’s Bible. In this review I’ll make comparisons with the ESV, so if you’re familiar with Crossway’s...

LCBP Paragraph Bible – Review

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...
