The Cambridge Transetto is an ultra-portable KJV with a unique design. It’s meant to be the ultimate balance between portability and readability. I reviewed this Bible when it released in 2011 but my wife claimed it because it’s so portable. At this year’s ICRS the Cambridge crew was kind enough to give me another one. Now that I have it in my hands again I wanted to write a new review. What is a Transetto? In this Bible the book-block is turned 90 degrees. What would normally be the left and right are the top and bottom. Due to...Read More

The Common Man’s Reference Bible is a popular study Bible among the KJV only crowd. It’s a wide margin reference edition in large print with an edge-lined lambskin cover with notes to support the KJV-O movement. I’m reviewing the 3rd edition.

This is a sewn binding and it has no issues laying flat. The heavy tab in the edge-lining might need to break in though before the pages...Read More
The Holman KJV Reader’s Bible was designed with reading in mind. It’s a Bible without all the other apparatus that gets in the way – chapter and verse numbers, reference and footnote keys, section headings, etc. I like being able to read God’s Word without the hindrances and distractions that are found in the typical Bible. A KJV that focuses on reading is something I’ve wanted for a long time. The Holman is very much their KJV version of the Crossway ESV Reader’s Bible. In this review I’ll make comparisons with the ESV, so if you’re familiar with Crossway’s...Read More
One of the easiest Bibles to carry around is a pocket size edition. Sometimes you need a pocket edition but you don’t want to sacrifice cross references or the Old Testament. Something like a Pitt Minion but smaller. The TBS Pocket Reference Bible is exactly that – the TBS version of the Cambridge Reduced Pitt Minion. In this review I’m taking a look at the burgundy calfskin edition which has the customizations that you would expect from TBS. This edition was printed by World Wide Printing in Belarus. Features KJV Calfskin cover Sewn binding Dark 5-point font Black letter...Read More
