LCBP 180 vs BPS Hand Size KJV Bible Quick Comparison

Local Church Bible Publishers and Bearing Precious Seed are publishers that produce the KJV at cost. Both have similar build structure – calfskin and cowhide covers that are edge-lined. This is a quick look at two of the most popular Bibles from both publishers: the LCBP 180 and the BPS Hand Size. Both have 10-point fonts and are text only editions with a concordance. The LCBP 180 has a calfskin cover, includes maps, has thicker paper, and a darker print. The BPS Hand Size has a cowhide cover, a sharper font with better spacing between the letters and words, is smaller and lighter, and more flexible. In these photos, the 180 is on the left or at the top (except for this first photo, which places the larger 180 on the bottom).


















I love the size and cover of the BPS. I also like the font-style of the BPS. I like the boldness and thick paper of the LCBP. For me, the BPS would be easier to carry and I enjoy the font better. The LCBP would be easier for preaching and marking because of the bolder font and thicker paper. I like both Bibles. I can’t say that one is better than the other. They have enough differences that I can see having both.

    Hello Matthew, thank you for this comparison review, I appreciate it. I am wanting to purchase the BPS Handsize but when I went to their website I found out that they don’t ship to the UK. Do you know of any place where I could buy that Bible and have it sent to the UK at all? Thanks in advance.
