    This Bible was delivered today, and it’s beautiful. The leather is very supple and soft. The dark brown color is very rich, and the multi-colored ribbons offer a beautiful color contrast. I just love it.

    One thing I hate with a passion, is things that are done lazily. For example, expensive headphones that, internally, are not good. If you’re paying a premium price for a product, you’re expecting a premium outcome. This has, fortunately (and unfortunately) adjusted my tastes to the finer things in life, things such as this Bible. I’ve had previous experience with premium quality leather before in the form of boots and belts, but don’t own too many premium Bibles. So, needless to say, I was excited for this one.

    Right out of the box I saw just how big it was. The pictures that Mark Bertrand and posted are amazing, but it’s hard for me to see how big it is through pictures. To give you an idea, it’s the size of a Study Bible with large print. The print is definitely large at 11 pt, but obviously there are no study notes. With that being said, I think the size is awesome. I’m more of a tabletop Bible reader and the size and typography make it easy to read. If you prefer to hold your Bible while reading, the 4 lbs makes it a bit difficult to do for an extended period of time. I’ve tried. The Personal Size Quentel is a lot better at that method of reading.

    Now for my favorite part, the leather. I own other leather products such as Frye boots and Bell & Oak (now renamed to Clint Wilkinson) accessories, but the Goatskin on this Quentel is another level. It smells amazing and practically melts when you open it. I’ve never owned something that is so supple while also withstanding transportation; and looking good while doing it.

    Overall, this is truly a lifetime Bible and one that will last me for many many years to come.

    I hesitated before ordering a copy of the updated ESV Quentel. I had ordered one of the first generation ESV Quentels a couple years ago, but I returned it after finding it too bulky for convenient use. The Cambridge Clarion ESV became my backup, but I was growing frustrated with how distracting the busy reference format could be. I remained skeptical of the Quentel because of 1) the size and 2) the cost given my reservations. But I decided to give it a try to see what I thought after the design updates.

    I have now spent a few weeks with the Quentel and can say that this may finally be the last ESV I will ever purchase. Much has been covered in the reviews already, so I will mention just a couple features that make this edition really great in my opinion.

    This is the most important factor for me. The placement of the references at the bottom of the page allows for a double column format where the individual columns are not too scrunched. In addition, there’s something magical about the font. References, footnotes, and verse numbers disappear when you’re not looking for them. But then when you need them, they’re right there. I have very good eyesight and have never needed a large print edition, so I expected the font size to be a little too big. And it was big at first. But I’m beginning to appreciate the size more and more for both its clarity as well as the ability to read from a desk without having to bend over to get closer to the page. The setting is so easy to read, whether taking in large swaths of narrative at once, or zooming in on a particular passage. I will also add that the coloring of the chapter numbers (along with the double column format) seems to enhance the ability to take a mental snapshot of the page. This is important for easily finding a passage you previously read and for building a mental map of the contents of the Bible. The Quentel does this better than any edition I’ve used in the past (especially single column editions).

    On one of the first couple days with this Bible, I accidentally turned a page a little too hard. “Shoot!” I thought, “I already tore a page.” But when I looked down, there was no tear! The paper is that thick and tough. This is a big plus, and I’m sure it will help with longevity.

    As mentioned, this was one of my main reservations. The size has been much improved in this edition over the original. It’s still a large Bible, but it is now slim enough that it no longer has that “study Bible feel” (only ~2/3 as thick as the ESV Study Bible). In addition, the spine has some kind of hard, reinforcing structure embedded within it. I have never seen this in a Bible before, but it definitely adds support when holding it by hand. It’s slightly on the heavy side, although not nearly as heavy as the first edition. I have not had difficulty holding it for extended periods of reading (generally an hour and a half in one sitting). Overall, I’d say the readability far outweighs (pardon the pun) any concerns I had.

    The only thing about this Bible I do not like is the multi-color ribbons…Purple? But this is an unbelievable Bible. This goatskin is like the Allan goatskin…soft and fluid…unbelievable. I have a Schuyler NLT in British Tan that is stiffer. This is comparable with the new Allan NASB goatskin (which I think is by far the best of the lot)…I have purchase quite a number from here. I was a little afraid to order because I bought one of the first NASB Schuyler and it was GIGANTIC. I gave it away…this one is smaller, a little bit of ghosting, large very legible type that is thrilling to read.I personally believe certain colors in goatskin are more fluid or pliable. My wife has the purple NLT…feels great…my British Tan NLT not as good but I still gave it 5 starts. This dark brown is the best I have experienced in the Schuyler…I’ll learn to live with the color of the ribbons.
