Description

NRSV Popular Text Anglicized with Apocrypha Black French Morocco

This Bible features clear, easy-to-read print, well laid out with generous page margins and space between the columns. The text is helpfully broken up with bold section headings, and running heads show chapter and verse for easy navigation.

It is printed on fine paper with gilt edges and there is a presentation page and ribbon marker. Bound in black French Morocco leather, this Bible includes the Apocrypha, or Deuterocanonical Books.

It would make an excellent gift for a special event.

The New Revised Standard Version is an accurate and scholarly translation, widely used for study as well as in churches. This edition uses the NRSV Anglicized Edition, developed for the UK and other countries that use British spelling and punctuation conventions.

  1. Rated 2 out of 5

    Plain old standard cheap cover. Text is small. Even smaller notes on the bottom. Has a glossary in the back. Price too high for item.

  2. Rated 3 out of 5

    Unfortunately, I have to agree with the previous reviewer on those points. However, I do like the French Morocco leather cover, but it seems that air pockets have developed where the leather has separated from the inside cardboard only after a week since I got it. I only hope Baker Books will live up to it’s word, a guarantee, according to a slip of paper that ships with their high end bibles to replace it for faultly workmanship. The text could be larger but it is easier on the eyes than the Oxford NRSV.

    OK, here is an update. It has been a few months since I wrote the previous review and to Cambridge’s credit they did replaced the bible as promised, with a little nudging. Just to let everyone know, Baker Books no longer handles bible returns for Cambridge in the USA. It seems that Cambridge has opened an office in NYC where I had to send my bible for “evaluation”. At first, they wanted me to return the bible to the place where I purchased it which would have been fine except I got it on the internet from a store in the UK. This presented a problem as it would have cost a nice bit to ship it back there without any guarantee of reimbursement. After going back and forth with some emails I was finally able to convince the nice lady that I was a good Cambridge customer (I have 7 Cambridge bibles of different translations) and she agreed to a “evaluation” but no promises. I had no doubt that when they saw what I was speaking of that they would send a replacement. It took a little over a month that included the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays but I received a new bible! However, after a couple of weeks of use I noticed the same problem with the air pockets starting again on the front cover. I have a Cambridge French Morocco KJV with never a hint of this type problem after many years of service. The only thing I can figure out is it must be a different manufacturing technique that causes the blistering. I am not going to return the bible this time as I can live with it. I really do love the feel and size of the bible and would recommend it if you are not a perfectionist. I will say the leather is much better quality and thicker than what Crossway uses when they say “Genuine Leather”. Their leather covers are really thin and don’t offer much protection which use to be the point in buying a leather cover book in the past.

    *THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2011 REPRINT*

    Let’s begin with the binding. In comparison to other bibles I own, the French Morocco is definitely the least supple. That’s not to say it’s rough and not enjoyable—quite the opposite—it’s rather nice. In contrast to the others mentioned, French Morocco is grainier and coarser, but that doesn’t mean that it’s unappealing. Though not as soft as other premium leathers, French Morocco is still a quality skin and will likely endure as long as or longer than softer leathers. The appearance is nice, too. Though time and use has dulled it quite a bit, the aroma of French Morocco is like the others—a hearty, aromatic leather that I can still detect.

    Being a Cambridge bible, I anticipated a certain level of quality and, needless to say, these expectations were met. The overall craftsmanship of Cambridge bibles is first rate—there’s not corner cutting or shortcuts taken. This bible simply feels solid and that’s a plus for any bible that’s going to be used with any regularity. In terms of the bible’s features, it’s pretty much a bare bones package—front matter (table of contents, letter from the translators) and the biblical text, including Apocrypha—that’s it. There are no indexes, no maps—just the text. For some this may be disappointing, but not for me. Like many of you, I have more than enough bibles with plenty of additional material in them should I want to read text and have supplemental information at hand. So, when I get this bible out, it is typically only to read and/or check how this translation handled a particular question of syntax or the like. On that note, this bible’s size also adds to its functionality (it measures out at 8.5 x 5.5 in). Because it’s stripped of any superfluous extras, it’s a perfect size to carry along in your bag/backpack or to keep handy for reading or referencing (as I do). The text is printed on gilt-edged paper, which itself doesn’t allow text to bleed through as much as more inexpensive bibles, and the font is adequately sized (Lexicon 8.75) for reading without undue strain. There are footnotes throughout, though they take up minimal page space, and there are no cross references or other similar “helps”. Also, since this is the Anglicized version, British spellings are employed throughout.

    In sum, all you really need to know is that this is a Cambridge bible, so you can rightly assume that it is of the highest quality. As with my others from Cambridge, I fully expect this one to last at least my lifetime and beyond!
