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.

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...Read More

by Jonathan Ammon Wide-Margin Bibles are one of the most popular and effective tools for personal Bible study. They allow you to create your own personalized study Bible, inviting you to investigate your own interpretation and experience with the word of God. In essence it is the creation of your own reference tool and doctrinal aid. A wide-margin Bible simply gives you the space to write your own notes around the word of God allowing marking, underlining and highlighting to be augmented by notes, chain references, diagrams, sketches, charts etc. As a graduation gift to myself, I purchased a Cambridge ESV Wide Margin Bible. This is my first wide-margin Bible and I reasoned that if I was going to meticulously write notes in it, I wanted it to last a lifetime. The edition I purchased features a smyth-sewn binding, art-gilt page edges, two ribbons and a genuine goatskin cover. It was a pricey item but I’m planning for it to last a lifetime and contain an entire book full of interpretational notes etc. Mark Bertrand has written an excellent review of the product. Of course this rationale propagated itself and I thought, “If the Bible is this expensive I really should buy a fine point archival quality pen to write in it,” hence my notes are made in an 005 purple Pigma Micron, which is the most heavily reccomended pen for Bible...Read More
by Jonathan Ammon of Bible Reading Project The Fire Bible: Global Study Edition is a new edition of Hendrickson and Life publishers Fire Bible, aimed at filling the need for study Bibles in foreign countries around the world featuring the 1984 NIV text. The original Fire Bible was an edition derived from the Full Life and Life in the Spirit Study Bibles aimed specifically at students and those with less theological background. The Full Life Study Bible was originally published in 1992 and featured extensive study notes written Donald C. Stamps a missionary to Brazil ordained by the Assemblies of God. These notes were later edited and extended for a wider audience and republished as the Life in the Spirit Study Bible. This Bible was then republished as the Fire Bible with the intention of fulfilling Donald Stamps’s first ambition which was to provide an accessible study Bible for international pastors and lay workers in countries which had little access to study materials, and specifically pentecostal materials. The notes in the Life in the Spirit Study Bible were altered once more to exclude cultural bias or references, present information in a way that was accessible to those from any context, and reword the text to be easily translatable (the general content of the notes and articles is identical). This became the Fire Bible: Global Study Edition, perhaps the first...Read More
