Thomas Nelson has continued to replace their older editions with their new Comfort Print typeface. My latest edition is the Giant Print KJV Reference Bible. This is a large print KJV along the lines of the Longprimer or Turquoise, but with inexpensive materials making it a great choice for the low-end market. I’m reviewing the bonded (it’s actually imitation – it was marked incorrectly at Amazon) leather edition, ISBN: 9780785215288, made in China. _________________________________________________________ This book is available at (includes some affiliate links) Amazon Books-A-Million Church Source Thrift Books and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________________________________ This Bible was purchased for review.

The Prayer Book and Bible Heritage Edition is an edition from Cambridge to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Book of Common Prayer and the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible.

Just like all the calf-split editions from Cambridge, the cover feels tough but looks good at the...Read More
Schuyler’s personal size edition of the KJV Canterbury is in the editing stage and they hope to have it available in spring 2018. This edition will be red letter. They’ve retained the red drop caps. This edition will have thinner paper than the regular edition and will not include a concordance. It will include maps. The glossary will depend on how small the font becomes when they shrink it. I suspect it will be too small to be useful. Time will tell. You can read our review of the regular Canterbury in calfskin here. You can purchase a Canterbury...Read More
The Cambridge NKJV Pitt Minion Reference Bible is a nice little reference Bible in the popular Pitt Minion setting from Cambridge. It’s easy to see why this setting is so popular: it’s a full reference edition with concordance and maps, all within a thin Smyth sewn book-block that’s easy to carry, and wrapped in a high-quality leather cover. It is available in calf split and goatskin. Both are excellent editions. In this review I’m taking a look at the black calf split leather. This Bible was purchased for review. I was not in any way influenced by the publisher to give...Read More
