Coming Soon – Update – KJV Large Print Wide Margin Bible from Hendrickson Publishers
Back in December I mentioned the return of one of my favorite wide-margin Bibles, Hendrickson’s KJV Large Print Wide Margin. This is one of my favorites because it has large print and headings in the text- two things not found in any other KJV wide-margin Bible that I know of. It’s due in May, so it’s still in the final stages of production and is still subject to change, but here’s the information from Hendrickson’s catalog (thanks to Meghan from Hendrickson):
Hendrickson reintroduces its popular Large Print Wide Margin Reference Bible—
but now with a fresh, new setting of the King James Version Bible.
This special edition of the KJV provides generous margins on three sides of
every page, which leaves plenty of room for recording sermon notes, personal
reflections on the Bible, and study group notes.
End-of-verse cross-references help readers follow a topic throughout the Bible,
and a brand new concordance provides helpful guidance on locating where
particular words are to be found in the text.
• Extra-wide side and bottom margins for making detailed notes
• Easy-to-read 11-point type
• End-of-verse cross-references
• 76-page concordance to aid in-depth study
• Personal presentation page
• Ribbon marker (Flexisoft, Bonded & Genuine Leather)
• Gilded page edges (Flexisoft, Bonded & Genuine Leather)
Please show us a sample page. Thank you 🙂
Does this happen to be a little smaller than the previous version? I love the layout, but it seemed just too thick to carry around. Thank you.
Hi Kenny. This one is thinner than the original. It’s also a different type-set. It matches their large print thinline, though the layout is a little different. I just received the wide-margin this week. I’m planning to post the review next week.
made in china = deal buster
Ordered this BIBLE around October 22, received a call it had come in Thursday 10-31, which is good service. The fact it was printed in China was not mentioned on the website, that would have kept me from ordering it? The books of the BIBLE are not separated by starting every book on a new page, I do not like this, and it eliminates additional space to make notes for the books on the remainder of pages at the end of each book . Are no blank pages at the beginning or end of the BIBLE for notes and personal reference? This seems to be a very good BIBLE but a few short cuts to save a dollar or so seems to be a bad decision?
Really like the print, especially the 11 pt size. The paper for the pages are good and seems to be of good enough quality. The color of the print looks as if it will be just fine. To have the scripture at the end of each verse is really a good thing, helps and saves time.
Last comment is I may return it and mostly due to: printed in China and the fact that each book is not started on a new page. Have not used it as of yet and will keep looking for what I really want and not have second thoughts about it.
