    Read the Bertrand review on this. I heard they are supposed to do a King James Version as well. Definitely in a class of its own. Appears extremely legible with nice unique touches such as the red chapter numbers. Considering the font, line matching, and opaque level of the paper, how do you think this stacks up against the Clarion in terms of making prolonged reading sessions more comfortable? Clarion layout or Quentel print aesthetic?

    • Randy Brown

      Good question. The Clarion is awesome in its size. It’s easy to hold in one hand and read (though not as easy as the Pitt Minion or Cameo, but with it’s larger font it’s a better overall choice). I find it very legible and I don’t have trouble reading it for long periods of time (it’s my primary reading Bible). The Quentel has better paper, a larger font, and better aesthetics, but it’s also larger, heavier, and more expensive. If you hold your Bible while reading, the weight and size of the Quentel might cause shorter reading sessions. The Clarion, being easier to handle and hold, would be better for long reading sessions. If you read your Bible while it lays on a table then size and weight are irrelevant (but that’s not usually how I read). I will need to see the Quentel before I can form a better opinion, but that’s my gut feeling. With that said, I often carry large Bibles to Church. I can’t wait for the Quentel KJV. That will probably be my primary Bible and I’ll lay it in my lap to read (unless there’s a cat there… then I’ll use the Clarion).

      Dear Randy:

      Size is important and should be chosen to be appropriate for how one expects to use the Bible. We’ve exchanged views on this subject, and are in accord for the most part. I have several Bibles that are either too large or almost too large for one handed reading that have been relegated to use for serious study sessions while seated at a desk and table. The one I am using for reading while seated is a rather humble little bible that has full features, and is roughly 5X7X 1 1/4″, it has a font of a little over 7 points and is well printed on good paper. I am thinking of replacing it with an Allan’s Brevier Clarendon with with similar features, size, quality, and with a font size of 9-9 1/2 points, against the time my eyes need more help. It is wonderful to have a Bible of appropriate size for one handed reading that can live on the lamp table next to one’s favorite chair. It is also nice to be able to have a beloved pet in your lap while doing so. My dog however, is a large boned Labrador Retriever of around 90-95 lbs that cannot be lap held. My little Cambridge Personal Concord that I purchased for about $50 is for now filling all my needs for one handed reading, I anticipate though that its rather small print, 7 1/2 font size, will not be sufficient in the future, so I will replace it with the Brevier Clerendon when I can. 72 year old eyes even well corrected will only get worse over time.

      Yours in Christ

      I’ve wanted the Brevier Clarendon for a while. If you get one please let me know how you like it.

    • Don Denison

      Dear Randy:

      I expect to buy their #7 (I think) I believe that this is the one with the Mid-Grain Goatskin. The one I saw was sufficiently stiff to allow easy one handed reading. I’ll be buying this for sure, it only requires the $160 that Allan’s is asking for it. When I get it I will report to you how I like it. The only negative I’ve heard so far is that the paper due to its thinness requires careful handling.

      Yours In Christ

      Don Denison

    I am happy to tell you that one of these shipped to me today. As soon as it arrives I will upload a detailed review and a comparison with the In Touch Ministries Wide Margin (best not takers Bible I have) and the Foundation Publications Side Column Reference Bible I have already reviewed.
