    BTW, I have the REB edition but wanted to praise the quality of the Cambridge Lectern Bibles

    I am a man that is a lover of the Bible. I have all types of Bibles in all types of translations. I usually collect fine Bible with goatskin, calfskin and other leathers; however, the only thing that I was missing was a Lectern/Pulpit Bible. I just never saw the need of having such a large edition.

    Well, since then I was call to be one of the Pastors of a EFCA church in Pennsylvania, and received an office that is at the church. So I no longer had to worry about carrying a large Bible to church; now it can stay on by desk or in the pulpit. With that being said, I figured that it was time.

    So now I have this edition and fell in love as soon as I opened the box! This things bleeds quality. The weight of the paper is perfect; it feels like you are turning a piece of cloth instead of paper.

    The paper is also super white and the ink is the darkest print I have ever seen in a Bible. The words on the page seem to be “alive” almost. You can tell much time was taken in printing this Lectern Edition correctly. In addition to that, the paper is as opaque as it gets; no worrying about ghosting with this Bible.

    The gilt page edges are a thing of beauty for sure. You can tell that this is not the spray on gilt that publishers are using now. This is the real deal; sheets of gold foil pressed onto the edges. When the Bible is closed, the gilt looks like a solid gold bar! Now that is quality.

    The pages are sewn to perfection by hand and lays flat from Genesis to Revelation. It even has overcast stitching in the front and back of the Bible for extra support. This edition also comes with 3 long and thick ribbons to help you keep your place while reading. Normally Cambridge Bibles have a tendency to have ribbons that fray, this edition does not suffer from sub par ribbon selection.

    Cambridge is so concerned about quality with these Lectern Bibles I believe, because of the cost of the investment. Cambridge even goes out of the way to give you a special letter with the Bible to tell you the special care they take in making these Bibles.

    Just know that if you decide to purchase one of these that you will not be disappointed

    Be Encouraged:-)
