Photos of Cambridge Pitt Minions
A brand new edition of the renowned New American Standard Bible, reflecting the best traditions of Cambridge Bible typography and production values.
Cambridge’s original Pitt Minion Bibles were notable for their use of a compact typeface designed for Cambridge University Press in the heyday of hot-metal composition. They have been a feature of the Cambridge list for over half a century. The NASB Pitt Minion Reference Edition now follows in this historic tradition, using a stylish modern digital typeface which like its predecessor combines utility and elegance. The result is a classic Bible for the twenty first century produced in a remarkably compact yet readable form.
Cambridge’s NASB Pitt Minion Bibles feature red-letter text for the words of Christ and full cross-references. Printed in the Netherlands on India paper, the gilt-edged pages are sewn for maximum resilience and durability. This Bible has a ribbon to keep the reader’s place and a presentation page. Extra study features include a concordance and 16 pages of maps.

Nice size and the red under gold gilt edge is beautiful, but it’s a disappointment that though it’s a goatskin cover, it’s not leather lined, and therefore not as supple as if it were leather lined. For that reason, and because of the print being too small and tight, my 70 year old eyes, would not be comfortable reading it for any length of time. I returned it.

Ordered the NASB Pitt Minion in June of 2019 and have used it for about 2 months. The bible is compact, fits in one hand and is readable given the font. Very pleased. Thanks to Kathleen for the fast service.
Just received My Pitt Minion NASB. Love these bibles! Compact, very legible, built to last, the paper is awesome, printed and bound in the Netherlands by Royal Jongbloed. Great value. Also added some imprinting which was professionally done by evangelical bible! Well done!
At first I was weary of the pricing, and I have a huge prejudice against companies that sale God’s word for such a high price, but I purchased this as a graduation gift for my love as he’s taking on the calling of preaching and really wanted it. This bible is perfect for him! It is absolutely beautiful, light, readable and easy to carry. The font is crisp and the words of Christ are in red. The pages aren’t too thin and feel wonderful as you turn the page. The Pitt minion reference bible fits perfectly into the hand and the covering of the book has a nice appearance and feel to it. I won’t purchase God’s word for such a high price again, but I definitely don’t regret it.

The Pitt Minion bibles are great! The PERFECT size unless you need large print. The leather is not as soft as Allen bibles but they more than make up for it in the text block (paper quality). This is my all-around favorite bible for reading, study, and travel!!! Well done Cambridge.

Excellent Bible! The size is perfect to fit in your hands and the goatskin leather has softened after some use, it is not as limp and flexible as the Cambridge wide margin NASB because the size, but it is a really soft flexible Bible. To me there is no better compact NASB than this one!
