Cambridge NKJV Pitt Minion Reference Bible – Review

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...

Coming Soon – Cambridge KJV Turquoise Reference Edition

A Bible that I’ve been looking forward to from Cambridge is the KJV Turquoise Reference Edition. The Turquoise was originally published in the 1920’s and has been a popular reference edition among those who prefer large print. It’s a verse-by-verse double column setting with center column references. The Turquoise is a great choice for preachers or anyone preferring a large print KJV. The new edition will have the words of Christ while on earth in red letter. It includes a sewn binding with either goatskin or calf-split leather, India paper (I suspect it will be the same paper as the current...

Coming Soon – Slimline Longprimer

Coming soon from R.L. Allan is a new slimline Longprimer called the 43. The Longprimer (see our review of the 53 in brown here) is a staple in the premium KJV market. It was recently updated with a cleaner scan and is now available in several covers and a larger edition with wide outer margins called the 63 Longprimer Sovereign (see a guest review here). With the recent paper improvements the Longprimer has been getting larger. There are still a market for those who prefer thinner Bibles. I still like the 32gsm edition that I reviewed years ago because...

Hendrickson KJV Thinline Reference Bible Review

Hendrickson’s KJV Thinline Reference Bible is a low-end thinline with some no-nonsense features that many will appreciate. I like thinlines because they’re easy to carry, but unfortunately most low-end editions skimp on paper and print quality. They’re also usually glued. That’s not the case with this Hendrickson. To get this price it does make a few sacrifices. Are they worth it? Absolutely. In this review I’m taking a look at the imitation edition (ISBN: 9781619709591 provided for free by Hendrickson). _________________________________ Buy from (includes some affiliate links) Amazon Barnes & Noble and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________ BINDING The cover is...
