Bibles of 2012

2012 saw a lot of amazing Bibles and we reviewed a few of them here at Bible Buying Guide. Here’s a quick look at the 2012 releases and links to our reviews: We started the year with the Cambridge Concord in calf-split leather, a fine specimen of Bible craftsmanship. This is a new cover for the original Concord. It’s much stiffer than calfskin and has a nice pebbly grain. It is a nice size and has a bold 8-point font. The red-letter is sharp and bold. The paper is very nice and opaque. The Concord has a great set of study tools with a glossary and dictionary, making the Concord a fine study and reading Bible.   Hendrickson released the AW Tozer Bible that included over 500 selections from 40 volumes of writings from 20th century writer AW Tozer. Tozer’s writings are presented in three categories called On Scripture, Reflections, and Challenges. The AW Tozer Bible can be used as a study Bible and devotional Bible.   New Leaf Press released the Henry Morris Study Bible, a large print study Bible with the focus on young earth creationism from the writings of Henry Morris. It includes commentary with a focus on creation and 22 appendixes that cover creation, science, the flood, the Bible, and more.   One of our most popular reviews was the Cambridge Clarion ESV. It follows the layout design of...

Hendrickson KJV Fire Bible Review

  Hendrickson’s Fire Bible series is an improved version of the original Full Life Study Bible. It’s an all-in-one reference library for Pentecostal Christians. It was originally developed for Pentecostal Pastors and lay-leaders as a tool for preaching, teaching, and outreach. The Fire Bible has been available for a while in NIV and is now available in KJV. I am reviewing the hard cover edition. Features include: Paragraph format 10-point font Red-letter Themefinders – 12 major Pentecostal themes More than 70 articles on historical and theological topics Study notes for key verses Book introductions Subject index Cross-references and textual notes Section headings Concordance In-text maps and charts One-year reading plan Color maps 9.50″ x 7.00″ x 2.00″ It is available from: Christianbook: Fire Bible KJV version, hardcover Amazon:  Fire Bible: King James Version: A Study Bible for Spirit-led Living (Bible Kjv) Cover and Binding This edition is hard cover. It is also available in imitation leather with 2 ‘his and her’ design options. One is blue with black and grey. The other is pink with khaki, red, and tan. The binding is sewn. Layout The layout of the Fire Bible is different from the Full Life Study Bible. It is still two columns, but the text is now in paragraph format. The verse numbers are large and in bold, so verses are easy to find (which has always been an...

Topical Reference Bible – Complete Analytical Study Edition KJV Review

  Some back story I was first introduced to the Topical Reference Bible in 1992. I bought it from a Preacher that was preaching in a tent revival that we were supporting. I was playing guitar in the revival (I am a Church musician). The edition I bought was published in 1985 by Dugan Publishers. It became my carry and study Bible until I got a genuine leather Thompson for $7.00. I was developing my marking methods and wanted a new Bible to start over. I used the Thompson for many years, but I missed my Dugan (which was...

Crossway ESV Global Study Bible Review

  The Global Study Bible from Crossway is a study Bible that focuses on cultures across the globe and how to apply Biblical themes to an international context. The focus is on global issues such as government, the Church, world religions, social ethics, missions, and evangelism. I am reviewing the hard cover edition. Features include: 2011 ESV text Black letter Introduction and timeline for each book References Headings Paragraph format Two column layout 12,000 study notes that includes facts and profiles 120 maps and illustrations 14 articles Glossary Table of Weights and Measures 56 page concordance 16 pages of maps 7.5 font for text, 6.5 font for notes Free access to the Online Global Study Bible Sewn binding 8.6 x 5.6 x 1.75 It is available from: Christianbook: ESV Global Study Bible Hardcover Amazon: ESV Global Study Bible (English Standard Version) Cover and Binding This edition is hard cover, although it is also available in paperback and imitation leather. The hard cover and imitation leather editions have a sewn binding, so they lay flat when opened. I would consider this a large hand-size Bible.   Text and Paper The font is 7.5 point with a good amount of space between the lines (leading). The font is sharp and consistently dark. The references are much smaller and can be difficult to read. The notes are 6.5 point with the pop-out boxes being...
