The Hendrickson Large Print Bible is a low-end edition that’s great for those times you just want a no-nonsense inexpensive Bible but don’t want to sacrifice print and paper quality. This is a clean edition designed and typeset by Blue Heron Bookcraft and it serves its purpose well. It’s available in hard cover (for use as a pew Bible) and softcover. In this review I’m taking a look at the softcover, ISBN: 9781619700017. _______________________________________ Buy from Amazon _______________________________________ Materials This edition is paperback.

One type of KJV that doesn’t have a lot of high quality options is a text-only edition in large print. The LCBP 215 series is in a league of its own. It has a sharp font and opaque paper that’s a joy to read and use. In this review I take a look at the Executive Series three-piece tan: 215 E3T, manufactured 7/2014. _________________________________________ Purchase from Local Church Bible Publishers: 215E3T _________________________________________ Features Model – 215 E3T KJV Family presentation pages Translators to the Reader Calfskin cover Sewn binding Edge lined 11 point font Black letter 197 page concordance 8...Read More
Even though there are have been variations in features, many publishers have had a KJV Ruby. And for good reason – it’s a small handy size with a sharp readable font. The TBS Royal Ruby Text Bible is a text-only compact KJV that’s available in a wide range of bindings. I’m reviewing the black calfskin with zipper and thumb-index. It’s produced for TBS by Cambridge and includes the familiar TBS additions. Like other TBS editions that I’ve reviewed, it comes in a nice slip case. _____________________________________ Buy from TBS _____________________________________ Features Text-only KJV Calfskin with zipper Opposing thumb...Read More
I am fond of thin Bibles. They’re light, easy to carry, and easy to hold for long periods of time. This usually means thin paper that has way too much show-through, and far too often, small print. This isn’t the case with Thomas Nelson’s newest line of Comfort Print® Bibles. This line of Bibles focuses on font design. They’ve worked with 2K/Denmark to design three new typefaces: one for the KJV, one for the NKJV, and one for the NIV. In this review I’m taking a look at the new font in the large print thinline KJV in three...Read More
