Baker’s KJV Personal Size Giant Print Reference Bible Hardcover has a lot of features in a handy size. It seeks to offer a combination of giant print along with features typically found in reference Bibles. Is has a few twists that I think set it apart and make it an excellent Bible for reading, carry, and preaching. I’m reviewing the hard cover edition. Photography by hannah C brown Binding This edition is hard cover. The cover itself contains the product info, so there’s no dust jacket. The construction feels well-made. It has a sewn binding and has no issues...Read More

One of the most popular questions that I’ve gotten is to make comparisons between the LCBP Note-Takers, Cambridge Concord Wide Margin, and the RL Allan Brevier Clarendon Wide Margin KJVs. I decided to share my latest response including a few photos. The Bibles are: LCBP 2nd Edition Note-Takers in Ironed Calfskin, Cambridge Concord Wide Margin in French Morocco (with custom thumb-index), and the RL Allan Brevier Clarendon Wide Margin in Highland Goatskin. The updated Note-Takers is the most readable. It has an 11.5-point font with about a 12.5 leading. The font is sharp and clean, is bold, and has minimal show-through. The Concord...Read More

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...Read More
