Local Church Bible Publishers “Hand Size Text Center Column Reference – 110 Series”. Also known as the CCC.

A Review by Blake Ratliff 2/18/12   Introduction   I have a fairly large and diverse collection of King James Bibles.  As I have used these Bibles over the years two of them have stood out as favorites.  They are the Cambridge Large Print Standard Text (LPST) and the Cambridge Cameo.  I often use the Cambridge LPST when I want to interact with the text alone with no distractions from commentary or referencing.  On the go I mostly use the Cambridge Cameo.  The great thing about the Cameo is the small size with text that is easy on the...

R L Allan Oxford Clarendon Wide Margin KJV in Black Highland Goatskin

R L Allan’s latest King James edition is the nice wide margin that was formerly published by Oxford. The font, layout, and margin are the same, but this wide margin has been given Allan’s exquisite binding treatment, making it the most durable and flexible wide margin available in KJV. Here are the basic features: Highland Goatskin Epistle Dedicatory and Allan Royal License Center column References Chapter summaries 3 Dark Blue Ribbon Markers Leather Lined Smyth sewn Semi yapp Gilt line inside Red under gold page edges (art-gilt) 8/9 point Bold Clarendon type Italics for inserted text Same pagination as regular size Brevier Clarendon editions 8.5 x 7 x 1.5 inches 1.5 inch margin 1536 pages 15 (16 pages) full color Oxford Bible maps 26 page for notes 48 pages of lined writing paper Coated writable India paper Binding The binding on this Allan is superb. It is leather-lined and includes a semi yapp. The highland goatskin is one of the softest and most flexible leathers available for a Bible and this highland goatskin is as nice as any I’ve seen. It includes the leather glued into the leather lining and end-pages, making this a well-build Bible that should last a lifetime. It is a sewn binding that lays flat. Layout I love wide margin Bibles. In my opinion, everyone should use a wide margin Bible for study- especially those...

With key features such as single column paragraph format (unique for a KJV edition), a nice black-letter 8.75 Lexicon Number 1 digital font, opaque India paper, references and translation notes on the outside margin, Smyth-sewn, and the perfect handy size (5x7x1.5), the Clarion is sure to be a staple in Bible publishing for many years to come. However, the KJV Clarion, with its many standard features, has one new feature worth taking a special look at. Rather than a standard concordance, the KJV Clarion has a Reader’s Companion which serves as a concordance and dictionary. The Reader’s Companion is...

Review: KJV TakeNote Bible

Review by Jonathan Ammon of Bible Reading Project The KJV TakeNote Bible (also available in a chocolate brown NKJV), a new wide-margin journaling Bible from Thomas Nelson, takes the grand old King James version and places it into a widely accessible journaling format for note taker’s and Bible lover’s. Though Crossway’s 2006 journaling Bible wasn’t the first on the scene (see Tyndale’s out of print Notemaker’s Bible) it made a splash in the Bible publishing world that took wide-margins further into the mainstream and introduced a format that appealed to avid note maker’s but didn’t intimidate the occasional scribbler. Thomas Nelson applied the philosophy behind the user friendly wide margin format and added a few improvements to make their TakeNote editions, which maximize current trends and advancements in Bible publishing. The most immediately noticeable feature of the Bible is its incredibly soft and flexible imitation leather cover. This is by far the best imitation leather cover I’ve handled. It’s both softer and more flexible than Crossway’s TruTone and features a handsome pebble grain finish. I was surprised by the suppleness, which easily performs the yoga position and allows the Bible to bend easily. It’s actually more supple than  some of the goatskin Bibles I’ve handled, and while this may not be a must for every reader it’s a great benefit when you have an edition that’s 7.5 inches wide...
