Product Description

Pictures of Cambridge Wide Margin Bibles.

This edition (red letter) offers a selection of tools for personal study in a Bible that is characteristic of Cambridge’s quality range of wide-margin styles. As in other Bible versions, the ESV Wide-Margin Reference Edition contains an attractive page layout with wide margins, complemented by a concordance, maps, and extra ruled pages for notes.

It is printed on carefully chosen Bible paper, slightly thicker than normal to allow for handwritten notes. Like all Cambridge Bibles, this edition is Smyth-sewn for long life, and its pages lie flat when the book is open. There is a choice of black- and red-letter styles, all bound to the highest standards, in a choice of covers and price points. The goatskin Bibles are superb examples of craftsmanship: the pages have art-gilt (red-under-gold) edges, and the covers are made from top-grain leather and edge lined, giving them an exceptionally flexible feel.

The layout and pagination are the same as the ESV Pitt Minion Reference Edition, making them an ideal combination for study and ministry.

    I received the ESV wide-margin in Goatskin as a replacement of the NASB I had. The NASB had a problem were the adhesive that held the cover down would come apart. I asked to replace the NASB with the ESV because the problem was corrected in ESV because Cambridge put a line of stitching along the edge of the bible were the adhesive is. This was a wonderful move that took nothing away from the beauty of this wonderful edition. I also want to say that the customer service from Baker Books ( The US headquarters for Cambridge Bibles) was awesome. They kept me informed through the whole process.
    The goatskin edition of the ESV Wide-Margin is amazing! I have had it since January of 2009 and the cover has gotten better with time. This is a statement that is worth keeping in mind because brand new out of the box it is buttery soft! The goatskin cover is leather lined which causes the bible to flow out of your hand when holding it. It is like the bible is organic; it is like the cover flexes and moves with a mind of its on! Another stand out feature of the bible is the art guilt pages. It give this bible a look of sophistication that can\’t be trumped. In a church gathering this bible is the \”talk of the party\”. The paper is of the highest quality, the best I have seen in any bible. It is thick a white which makes the text bold and visible, it also cut down bleed through to a very minimal level. The margins are very generous on every side of the text; north, south, east, and west! In addition to wide margins there are also lined paper in the back for taking notes!
    I know that there is no perfect bible, however there are bibles that get a lot right. The ESV Wide-Margin in goatskin is one of those bibles. If you are looking for a wide -margin bible, this is the one to have. You will not be sorry if you make this purchase. I PROMISE!

    Be Encouraged,

    DO NOT BUY THIS BIBLE!!!!! Unless you plan on absolutely falling in love with it! I purchased this because I simply ran out of room for notes in my other Bible and everything was so cluttered that I had such a hard time finding anything. I love the wide margin because of this in order to keep everything very clean and organized. I also enjoy the huge section of lined paper in the back that I mostly use for quotes, and then there\’s an alphabetical guide to notes just before that which is extremely helpful. I definitely struggled with justifying the price but ultimately, it is God\’s Word and I want to protect and treasure it. It feels and looks amazing, but the most important thing no matter how big or how great a Bible is is how much of it do I apply to my life. This Bible has so far proven to be an amazing aid to applying God\’s Word to my life because it is capable of being poured into and still being an amazing reference for me.

    The paper is brilliant white and nearly completely opaque. I have tried writing in it with Pima microns and it has almost no bleed through (unless you hold the pen for quite some time on the page). I think there is something to be said for the typical use of a wide margin and this one delivers. I have to admit the goatskin feels almost dry and not as soft and silky feeling as RL Allan’s highland goatskin. Fact is, if I could have the RL Allan goatskin with the Cambridge paper in it, I would have the perfect ESV. Overall though a complete win! 5/5

    I received my Cambridge ESV Wide-Margin Bible recently and I immediately fell in love with it. I will be honest, I have never been a fan of black leather… until this edition! The goatskin leather is beautiful. It is soft, it is high quality, and it is wonderful feeling in your hands. The font size is very readable, this is important to me as I teach and preach. Also, the wide margins are great for note-taking. I cannot recommend this Bible enough. If you are looking for a high quality Bible that is both gorgeous and very functional, please get this Bible.

    I recently bought of one these. I would echo all the praise that other reviewers have put forward. But I will note that mine has the updated 2011 text. I was expecting the older text, so I was very pleasantly surprised.
