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. The sales information says it has a sewn binding, but to me it looks glued in sections. I...Read More

Schuyler’s personal size edition of the KJV Canterbury is in the editing stage and they hope to have it available in spring 2018. This edition will be red letter. They’ve retained the red drop caps. This edition will have thinner paper than the regular edition and will not include a concordance. It will include maps. The glossary will depend on how small the font becomes when they shrink it. I suspect it will be too small to be useful. Time will tell. You can read our review of the regular Canterbury in calfskin here. You can purchase a Canterbury...Read More
A Bible that I’ve been looking forward to from Cambridge is the KJV Turquoise Reference Edition. The Turquoise was originally published in the 1920’s and has been a popular reference edition among those who prefer large print. It’s a verse-by-verse double column setting with center column references. The Turquoise is a great choice for preachers or anyone preferring a large print KJV. The new edition will have the words of Christ while on earth in red letter. It includes a sewn binding with either goatskin or calf-split leather, India paper (I suspect it will be the same paper as the current...Read More

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
