Cambridge Turquoise Review

The Cambridge Turquoise (named for the gem, like many older Cambridge editions) is a large print KJV reference edition from the 1920’s. It’s been one of the standard premium reference Bibles for many generations and is a favorite among preachers because of the large dark typeface. The Turquoise has been out of print for several years and now Cambridge has re-released this traditional vintage design in a premium edition with top of the line materials. It includes the Translators to the Reader, a newly redesigned concordance, and colorful maps. It’s available in black, brown, or blue goatskin with a calfskin...

Authorized – The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible – Review

What the Book Covers Mark Ward covers the...

Thomas Nelson Giant Print KJV Reference Bible – Review

Thomas Nelson has continued to replace their older editions with their new Comfort Print typeface. My latest edition is the Giant Print KJV Reference Bible. This is a large print KJV along the lines of the Longprimer or Turquoise, but with inexpensive materials making it a great choice for the low-end market. I’m reviewing the bonded (it’s actually imitation – it was marked incorrectly at Amazon) leather edition, ISBN: 9780785215288, made in China. _________________________________________________________ This book is available at (includes some affiliate links) Amazon Books-A-Million Church Source Thrift Books and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________________________________ This Bible was purchased for review.

The Prayer Book and Bible Heritage Edition is an edition from Cambridge to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Book of Common Prayer and the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible. I’m reviewing the black calfskin edition, ISBN: 9781107032699,  It was printed and bound in Italy by LEGO. This Bible was purchased for review.  _________________________________________________________ This book is available at (includes some affiliate links) Amazon and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________________________________ COVER AND BINDING The cover is black calf-split with paste-down liner. Just like all the calf-split editions from Cambridge, the cover feels tough but looks good at the...
