In early July, Church Bible Publisher’s will release the Circuit Rider Bible. This is a limited edition KJV made for circuit preachers. This is the text-only thineline that I reviewed recently, which includes a 9-point font in red-letter, a 1-inch outer margin, and 33gsm paper.
It comes in brown cowhide with a flap and leather string, and it’s one of my favorite covers that I’ve seen on any Bible. The cowhide is rugged and elegant at the same time. It has a pebbly grain with a lighter brown texture. Rather than having the cover fold over the liner, both are sewn together with a tan thread that creates perimeter stitching. On the spine are 5 raised hubs and Holy Bible, King James, and CBP in gold. The flap is extra flexible so it doesn’t get in the way when the Bible is opened. The edge-lined liner is a soft cowhide leather that feels durable. It comes with 2 black ribbons and black and gold head/tail bands.
The CBP Circuit Rider Bible is a great choice for anyone wanting a thinline wide margin text-only KJV that doesn’t need a large font or margins all around.
CBP loaned this Bible for review. I was not asked to give a positive review.
Here are a few photos of this impressive cover and limited edition. I’ve also included a few photos to show how it compares to the thinline edition.
