This is a red-letter edition that is about a medium shade of red. It looks nice. To help with pronunciation, there are hyphens to separate the syllables and accent marks. There are no symbols to show vowel sounds, etc. , but it still works just fine. There are plenty of headings in the text. In the Gospels, the headings include references to parallel passages in the other Gospels. Paper The paper is thicker than normal Bible paper and feels more like a regular hard-cover book than a Bible. The paper has about a medium opacity and helps to make the Bible very readable. References The references are at the end of the verse. They...Read More

Releasing January 2013, the King James Edition Pitt Minion will be available in Black Imitation, Brown Calf Split, and Black or Brown Goatskin. Here’s the information from Baker Publishing: A combination of skilled design and the use of a remarkably compact typeface lead to acclaim for the Pitt Minion format in achieving the difficult feat of being both easy to carry and easy to read. The first Pitt Minions were only available in the King James Version but in recent years Cambridge has developed the original concept by creating new Pitt Minion Bibles in a range of modern translations. These are produced using a special digital font which has similar characteristics of compactness and readability to the original typeface. Now, the KJV Pitt Minion Edition has been freshly typeset using this modern font and current layout, which presents the text in paragraph format. The Bible text is supported by a Reader’s Companion (a cross between a concordance and a dictionary) and 15 newly designed color...Read More
The Wide Margin Loose Leaf Reference series of Bibles from Hendrickson Publishers are a note-taker’s dream come true. Having both wide margins and loose leaf pages means you can take notes within the margins, but you are not limited by just the space on the page. You can add as many sheets of paper as you need, anywhere you need. This is great for adding articles, charts, outlines, definitions- just about anything you could possibly need for teaching, preaching, or study. They are available in many translations including KJV, ESV, NASB, NRSV, NIV, and some are available with study notes. This is a review of the KJV edition. Here are the basic features.

The A. W. Tozer Bible from Hendrickson Publishers is a study/devotional Bible with writings from one of the 20th century’s most beloved Christian authors. A. W. Tozer was a Pastor, Preacher, Teacher, and Student who wrote many books in his 40-year ministry. This Bible includes over 500 selections from his writings. Here’s a look at some of the key features: Brief biography of A. W. Tozer Epistle Dedicatory (dedication to King James) Over 500 Tozer selections King James Version Book introductions Textual Headings Words of Christ in red Outer side-column references 145 page Concordance 8 pages of Maps 9.50 x 6.25″ x 1.75″ Text The font looks to be a more modern digital font. I’m not sure of the font’s size, but it looks close to 9-point. It has extra leading between the lines, giving plenty of room to underline. There are no footnotes indicators in the text itself. This makes the text very clean and readable. One of my favorite features is the text layout. Poetry is set in verse format which is offset from the regular text. I like the way this looks. It helps not only to identify the genre of Scripture, but also makes the text more readable. The reference of the first verse that appears on the page is printed at the top of each page. Paragraph markers continue throughout the New Testament. Headings...Read More
