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

Coming soon from R.L. Allan is a new slimline Longprimer called the 43. The Longprimer (see our review of the 53 in brown here) is a staple in the premium KJV market. It was recently updated with a cleaner scan and is now available in several covers and a larger edition with wide outer margins called the 63 Longprimer Sovereign (see a guest review here). With the recent paper improvements the Longprimer has been getting larger. There are still a market for those who prefer thinner Bibles. I still like the 32gsm edition that I reviewed years ago because...Read More
