Description

New Cambridge Paragraph Bible Personal Size Black Calfskin

The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible presents the KJV text as intended by the
1611 Translators, using their surviving notes. The text is presented in
paragraph form with marginal notes. Modern spelling and punctuation are
used for simplicity and ease of use.

This scholarly edition first came out in 2005 in a large format, and
like the early King James Bibles, included the Apocrypha. It was
published to critical acclaim and is now issued in Personal Size
editions, either with or without the Apocrypha, to satisfy different
preferences. It comes in hardcover or leather.

5.25 x 8.25

    I really like a lot of things about this Bible. First off the size is perfect – very handy do hold for long periods of time. The calfskin leather is soft and subtle and overall impression as with most Cambridge bibles is one of quality construction. My favorite thing about this Bible is the work done by David Norton in reproducing the AV1611 text. I do not have expertise in the background of the AV text, but the end result of the work makes for a very nice rendition of the KJV text itself. The punctuation of text and the spelling of some words have been modernized. So if you don\’t care for \”smiles\” and \”winks\” in your KJV text, you\’ll love this Bible. That combined with the fact that there are no cross references or self-pronouncing text makes this a pleasant reading KJV bible. If you are not a regular reader of the KJV, or just getting into reading the KJV this may be a good choice for you. I can see this translation being useful both to KJV newcomers as well as people who are interested in the more scholarly aspects of the KJV text and its history. I would not consider this just a \”one off\” KJV translation to be thrown in the corner – it is viable for serious study.

    The downside for me at least is the size of the print and bleed through of the paper. I don\’t recall what Cambridge has as the print size listed for this bible, but its \”feels\” like an 8pt to me. Fine for some I suppose, but I personally need a 10pt print or better. The bleed through is not any worse than most bibles (the same as the Clarion) but bleed through combined with the print size is too much for me to handle on a daily basis… but that is mostly personal preference/sensitivity.
