The Bible includes answers to tough questions about God, following Jesus, and loving others. There are many articles and charts throughout the Bible that pertain to important topics for girls. The free review Bible I received from Tyndale is (roughly) 5.5 x 8.5 and is made from ‘leatherlike’ material. The style is ‘glittery grape butterfly’. It has a very ‘girly’ purple and pink cover and the text has pink...Read More
The process of creating a bible is longer and more complex than some people might think. As shown in this newly released video by Crossway, it’s actually a rather lengthy and several step process, especially for a company as meticulous for quality as Jongbloed. The first step is the paper, which has to be printed in very specific humidity and temperature conditions to maintain optimum quality. During the printing the pages are marked with special signatures in group of 64 pages, and then those groups are assembled into the final text blocks for each bible. The pages of each...Read More
Exodus 31 (KJV) 31 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 2 See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: 3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, 4 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, 5 And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship. Not typically the way that you would open a review but...Read More
Many people read the King James Version of the Bible because they love the connection it has to historical Christianity. The Authorized Version “speaks” to us in a way that is classic, timeless, and beautiful. This is the Bible the Puritans, the Colonial Calvinists like Jonathan Edwards, and fiery golden-mouthed preachers like Charles Spurgeon used and loved. It was the Bible of the founders of the America and of Billy Graham. Until the advent of the “modern translation,” the King James Bible was the Bible of the English speaking world. Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible For this reason, Reformation Heritage Press has given the conservative, evangelical Christian world a major gift in the new KJV Study Bible. This will be a Bible that KJV readers, especially those of a Reformed and Confessional perspective, will treasure for generations. Because of the theological perspective of the editors, though, it may not be for everyone. (More on that below).

I am a history nut. My family traces its German lineage back to 1265, and my Church comes from a branch of the Christian family tree that joyfully embraces our heritage, rooting back to the times of the Reformation (1500’s) and beyond. So yeah, I like old stuff. This is one of the reasons that I met and fell in love with Bibles published by Cambridge. Besides being on the front lines of the world’s highest quality Bibles today, Cambridge also has the distinction of being the world’s oldest continuous Bible producer, having begun in the year 1591. It is a delight to my hands and heart to hold a Bible made by a press house that predates the King James Bible of 1611. Think about that! When you purchase a Cambridge Bible today, you receive a small certification that reads as follows, “Cambridge University Press is the oldest Printer and Publisher in the world. The Press’s first Bible, printed in 1591, was an edition of the Geneva Bible – the translation that crossed to America with the Pilgrim Fathers. This established an unbroken four-hundred year tradition of printing and publishing the Bible” (emphasis added). Wow. When the Authorized Version supplanted the Geneva Bible, the Tyndale, the Bishop’s Bible, and the Coverdale in the early 17th century as the most dominant English translation the world has ever known, Cambridge began producing the time-honored...Read More
