Review by Blake Ratliff (12/11/16) Introduction After wearing out a few bonded leather Bibles, I finally discovered a Christian book store that had some quality real leather Bibles and purchased my first study Bible: a Moroccan leather KJV Thompson Chain. This Bible has really lasted and I have refused to buy any bonded leather Bible ever since. In searching for a more compact reader’s Bible, I discovered Cambridge and got their standard text edition.

If you’re wondering what a Compact Westminster is, it’s a reduced version of the...Read More

The concept and page design is from 2K/Denmark and the result is a layout that works. ______________________________ Buy from Amazon Holman Reader’s Reference Bible ______________________________ Binding This is a hard cover edition with a dust jacket.
