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

Review by Blake Ratliff (12/11/16) Introduction After wearing out a few bonded leather Bibles, I finally discovered a Christian book store that had some quality real leather Bibles and purchased my first study Bible: a Moroccan leather KJV Thompson Chain. This Bible has really lasted and I have refused to buy any bonded leather Bible ever since. In searching for a more compact reader’s Bible, I discovered Cambridge and got their standard text edition. It became my favorite Bible mainly due to the readability of the font and the feeling of quality. Over the years, I have become...Read More
The TBS Large Print Bible is a text-only KJV made for those that prefer or require an extra-large type. The goal is to present a large type in a volume with a reasonable overall size.

Having such a large footprint, its size does limit its uses… but it suits a couple of uses really well… Features KJV 5 black letter font Text only Vinyl cover Sewn 34gsm...Read More
Great news for anyone buying the Compact Westminster! The shipment is now past customs and on American soil. They are expected in Chicago by the end of this week and should be ready to ship early next week. If ordered within the next two weeks you should have your order by December 24th. If you want to pre-order (which would place it on back-order and help get your order out quicker) feel free to call them (and tell them Randy said it was okay 🙂 ). If you’re wondering what a Compact Westminster is, it’s a reduced version of the...Read More
Zondervan’s KJV Giant Print Personal Size Reference Bible is an inexpensive Bible (the one I’m reviewing is $14.99) that provides a highly readable text in a sewn binding. It’s available in imitation and bonded leather. The edition I’m reviewing is black imitation leather (Leather Look), ISBN: 9780310931911. ___________________ Buy from Amazon ___________________ Binding The cover is called Leather Look imitation leather. I think it’s actually plastic. It’s a single sheet of plastic with the end-page glued directly to it, there’s nothing folding over the end pages. The edges of the cover are the edges of the plastic. The liner...Read More
