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

The TBS Slimline Pocket New Testament is one of those checkbook style Bibles that’s made to carry in your coat pocket or purse. Although it’s only a New Testament, this edition is by far my favorite in this format. It has a feature that I’d love to see become more popular in KJV’s: single column paragraph.

The large or giant print KJV with center column references is a standard in Bible publishing. Practically every KJV publisher has one including Zondervan. In this Bible review I take a look at Zondervan’s low-priced Giant Print Reference Bible (ISBN 9780310931720) in burgundy bonded leather. The suggested retail price is $17.99. It can often be found for much less. Even though it’s a low-priced Bible it has a lot to offer. ______________________________ Buy from Amazon ______________________________ Binding The cover is burgundy bonded leather with a paper liner and a glued binding. This is not the kind of cover that...Read More
Schuyler Bible’s first KJV was their own production of the TBS Westminster. The Canterbury is Schuyler’s first originally designed King James Version. It follows a similar pattern of their Quentel series but has a few design features that are unique in modern Bible publishing, creating a unique blend of old and new. The design of the Canterbury makes me think of modern retro cars. Cars like the Mustang and Challenger are patterned after the classic designs but they have modern refinements. The Canterbury is patterned after the KJV’s of old, but with modern fonts and paper, making it feel...Read More
The Westminster was the first, and one of the very few, Bibles that my wife loved so much that she claimed it before I could even see it. There’s a good reason for that – updated words in the margins, 200,000 cross references, elegant setting, etc. The Westminster KJV Reference Bible has been made into a compact edition (33% smaller in overall footprint). Lately I’ve used smaller Bibles and this one fits the bill just right. My wife isn’t getting this one. This one is mine. The Compact Westminster was made with missionaries in mind. Those who need to...Read More
