Cambridge Transetto KJV Bible – Review

The Cambridge Transetto is an ultra-portable KJV with a unique design. It’s meant to be the ultimate balance between portability and readability. I reviewed this Bible when it released in 2011 but my wife claimed it because it’s so portable. At this year’s ICRS the Cambridge crew was kind enough to give me another one. Now that I have it in my hands again I wanted to write a new review. What is a Transetto? In this Bible the book-block is turned 90 degrees. What would normally be the left and right are the top and bottom. Due to...

Crossway’s ESV Reader’s Bible, Six-Volume Set – Review

Several months ago I received a review copy of Glenn R. Paauw’s book Saving the Bible from Ourselves (review coming soon). Paauw describes the problems with Bible design and the need for a readable Bible that’s made specifically to do the #1 thing we should be doing with the Bible – reading it. The need for a reading Bible is why Crossway’s ESV Reader’s Bible, Six-Volume Set was created. The typical Bible is a series of compromises.

Holman KJV Reader’s Bible – Review

The Holman KJV Reader’s Bible was designed with reading in mind. It’s a Bible without all the other apparatus that gets in the way – chapter and verse numbers, reference and footnote keys, section headings, etc. I like being able to read God’s Word without the hindrances and distractions that are found in the typical Bible.

In this review I’ll make comparisons with the ESV, so if you’re familiar with Crossway’s...

Quick Look – Holman Minister’s Pocket Bible

I spent a day in Cedar Springs Christian Bookstore in Knoxville, TN secretly filming reviews and taking pictures of Bibles. This isn’t as detailed as my standard reviews, and some of the photos and videos are blurry, but maybe there’s enough information here to help you decide if this Bible is for you. The Holman Minister’s Pocket Bible is a small text-only edition in NKJV and KJV about the size of a Pitt Minion. In the back it has a concordance, maps, subject index, and in the middle is has several minister’s helps for events such as funerals, weddings, etc. It’s...
