The Thompson Chain Reference Bible is one of the oldest study Bibles on the market. The first edition, and KJV, was printed in 1908. It’s considered a complete Bible reference library in one volume, but what’s interesting is it does this without having any commentary.

It’s available in several popular translations and each one has a few tweaks of their own. In this review I take a look...Read More

Holman has gone and done something that that is sure to make a lot of Bible journaler’s happy – they’ve licensed Crossway’s Journal Bible design to produce their very own journaling Bible in some of today’s top translations – the HCSB, NJKV, and KJV.

The New King James is sadly lacking in premium editions. I can count them on one hand. There is only one wide margin edition available. Fortunately it is available in two different covers: calf split and goatskin. Both are excellent editions. In this review I take a look at the Cambridge NKJV Wide Margin in black calf split leather.
