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
A Bible that I’ve been looking forward to from Cambridge is the KJV Turquoise Reference Edition. The Turquoise was originally published in the 1920’s and has been a popular reference edition among those who prefer large print. It’s a verse-by-verse double column setting with center column references. The Turquoise is a great choice for preachers or anyone preferring a large print KJV. The new edition will have the words of Christ while on earth in red letter. It includes a sewn binding with either goatskin or calf-split leather, India paper (I suspect it will be the same paper as the current...Read More
I recently had the opportunity to interview Professor David Norton, editor of the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible. Professor Norton graciously put up with my questions and has provided us with a detailed look at the purpose and need for an edited edition of the KJV. I personally consider the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible to be one of the most important KJV’s ever published and this interview will explain why. On to the interview. Image – David Norton. 2004.

The Cambridge Pitt Minion has been a popular Bible for many years, and with good reason – the size and quality create a Bible that’s easy to carry without sacrificing features. It’s available in several translations including the NASB. In this review I’m taking a look at the NASB Pitt Minion in black goatskin. This is model NS446:XR, ISBN: 9780521604123, which was printed and bound in the Netherlands by Royal Jongbloed and provided free for review by Cambridge University Press. _______________________________________________ Buy from (includes affiliate links) Amazon Barnes & Noble Books-A-Million Evangelical Bible and a few local Bible bookstores _______________________________________________ PROS Easy to...Read More
The Cambridge Pitt Minion is a standard in small high quality Bibles and for good reason – it’s a full reference edition that’s easily carried while presenting a readable, yet small, typeface. The result, if you’re okay with small type, is a Bible that can easily become the only Bible you need. In this review I take a look at the English Standard Version (ESV) in black goatskin. It’s also available in brown goatskin, black calf split, and black imitation leather. Pros Easy to carry Goatskin cover Cons Some will have trouble with the small type Features 2011 ESV...Read More
