The Cambridge Turquoise (named for the gem, like many older Cambridge editions) is a large print KJV reference edition from the 1920’s. It’s been one of the standard premium reference Bibles for many generations and is a favorite among preachers because of the large dark typeface. The Turquoise has been out of print for several years and now Cambridge has re-released this traditional vintage design in a premium edition with top of the line materials. It includes the Translators to the Reader, a newly redesigned concordance, and colorful maps. It’s available in black, brown, or blue goatskin with a calfskin...Read More

The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible is a revision of the King James that, instead of revising the later revisions, returns back to the 1611 edition in an effort to produce a text the translators had in mind. Spelling and punctuation is updated to today’s English. The original New Cambridge Paragraph Bible was produced in 2005. The 2011 personal size edition makes several corrections and, as the name suggests, reduces the size to something more manageable for every day use. The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible is basically a text edition with translator’s footnotes that sets the standard for a modern...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
