The pastor’s Bible had become a standard in Bible publishing. They typically provide helps and outlines for officiating events, and tools and articles concerning the duties of pastors and church leaders, providing ministers with a valuable resource to aid them in ministry. The CSB Pastor’s Bible from Holman is the newest pastor’s Bible on the market, in their recently released Christian Standard Bible translation. I’m reviewing the genuine leather edition, ISBN: 9781462766154 (made in China). Holman Publishers provided this Bible free for review. I was not required to give a positive review – only an honest review. My opinions are my...Read More

Crossway’s ESV Reader’s Letters of Paul is a reader’s edition of Paul’s 13 New Testament letters. This is a new setting of those letters in a single volume without distractions such as chapter and verse numbers, and section headings. Paul’s letters had such an impact on the Reformation that this volume was produced to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. _________________________________ Buy from Amazon ISBN: 9781433557965 _________________________________ Cover and Binding This edition is cloth over board.

The Hendrickson Large Print Bible is a low-end edition that’s great for those times you just want a no-nonsense inexpensive Bible but don’t want to sacrifice print and paper quality. This is a clean edition designed and typeset by Blue Heron Bookcraft and it serves its purpose well. It’s available in hard cover (for use as a pew Bible) and softcover. In this review I’m taking a look at the softcover, ISBN: 9781619700017. _______________________________________ Buy from Amazon _______________________________________ Materials This edition is paperback. The sales information says it has a sewn binding, but to me it looks glued in sections. I...Read More
Schuyler’s personal size edition of the KJV Canterbury is in the editing stage and they hope to have it available in spring 2018. This edition will be red letter. They’ve retained the red drop caps. This edition will have thinner paper than the regular edition and will not include a concordance. It will include maps. The glossary will depend on how small the font becomes when they shrink it. I suspect it will be too small to be useful. Time will tell. You can read our review of the regular Canterbury in calfskin here. You can purchase a Canterbury...Read More
The Cambridge NKJV Pitt Minion Reference Bible is a nice little reference Bible in the popular Pitt Minion setting from Cambridge. It’s easy to see why this setting is so popular: it’s a full reference edition with concordance and maps, all within a thin Smyth sewn book-block that’s easy to carry, and wrapped in a high-quality leather cover. It is available in calf split and goatskin. Both are excellent editions. In this review I’m taking a look at the black calf split leather. This Bible was purchased for review. I was not in any way influenced by the publisher to give...Read More
