Christian Arts Publishers produces a variety of affordable KJV’s with sewn bindings and nice print. Among these editions is this regular and large print combo. These Bibles have the same font style, layout, paper, and features so I’ve combined them into one review so you can see how they compare. Buy from Christian Art Gifts Buy from Amazon Binding The covers are LuxLeather, which is their version of polyurethane. These are some of the most beautifully ornamented covers that I’ve seen. They have eloquently designed stamping patterns and rich colors that are bold and have a nice texture. The...Read More
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...Read More
The TBS Family Bible is a text-only large print Bible that utilizes the Cambridge Large Print Text text-block. TBS has added a few features of their own to make it look and feel much different than the Cambridge edition. I’ve read from it, carried it around, and preached from it.

The Zondervan Thinline Large Print KJV is meant to be an everyday go-to Bible in large print. It’s meant to be a travel Bible that you can carry where ever you need to without sacrificing print size or having to settle for an overly large book-block. Something of course has to be sacrificed in order to keep the book-block thin enough and still retain the large print. What was sacrificed, and is the sacrifice worth it? Let’s take a look and see. Price $17-23 (depending on color) | Buy from Amazon Binding The cover is burgundy / carmel (tan)...Read More
The Cambridge Standard Text is a hand-sized Bible that’s been around for many years. It’s also known as the Emerald, and is an enlargement of the Royal Brevier from the 1950’s by Eyre & Spottiswoode. The model I’m reviewing is KJ43. It’s black-letter and French Morroco and was printed in the UK in Belarus. It’s also available in red-letter and in hard cover (which would make a great pew Bible).
