3 reviews for Cambridge NRSV Reference with Apocrypha Bible, Black French Morocco

    This is perhaps the best quality NRSV Bible available currently. The type is very clear and readable. Ghosting is not a major issue in this version, even though the paper is thin. I like the fact that it’s not a red letter edition, this makes for easier reading in my opinion. The Apocrypha is a nice addition that is not commonly found and was one of the reasons I chose this particular Bible as I wanted to do a study of the Apocryphical books, as well as having another version as a compareson reference.

    The biggest issue I have with this Bible, and this is not a major problem by any means, is the cover. It is French Morocco leather, it’s rather thin compared to Cambridge’s Gostskin offerings and is very stiff. Still, I think it is a good binding that should last a long time.

    Overall, I think this is about as good as it gets in an NRSV. There’s not a lot of really high quaility choices in this version, particularly ones that include the Apocrypha. It’s a Cambridge, it has Symth Sewen binding, it’s leather (though not the best quality) and it has two rather wide thick ribbon markers. I would recommend this Bible to anyone who is looking for a quality NRSV Bible.

    I guess I was spoiled by Cambridge’s Wide margin Bible in calfskin leather. The leather in one word is cheap. It is extremely thin. Smelled good though. I just needed an NRSV Bible with the Apocryphal books and I chose this one. The text block looked good. However the paper was off white and the small print just doesn’t get it. My Cambridge wide margin is nice and white and the font is more readable. It will service my purpose but for the price I would look elsewhere if I was to order another NRSV. Evangelical Bible is my source of what I buy and the service is excellent. Like the other comment said it is hard to find a good selection of the NRSV Bible.

    This is very nice bible. No, it’s not a highland goatskin Allan, but it is a very nice, very well put together Bible with good paper and excellent readability. I wanted a quality Bible that simply had the Old Testament, New Testament and Apocrypha all in one and had references, but was not a huge study Bible because I wanted to be able to take it with me when I traveled. This is it. In fact, in a high quality Bible containing the Apocrypha this may be the only one available. Thank you, Cambridge, for putting it together.
