IMG_1556The Cambridge Concord Reference Bible is a gem that is often overlooked in the ever growing high quality Bible market place.  It’s frankly one of our favorite Bibles in print.  So why is it such a gem?  IMG_1567The Concord Reference at 8 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ is portable. It’s a Bible that goes anywhere.  Second, the Bible size doesn’t compromise legibility as is so often the case with smaller Bibles.  Cambridge uses the Times Semi Bold (421) which at 8 point is more legible than the former ESV Large Print at 12.75.  That’s the nature of fonts – they aren’t all created equal!  With good India paper and line matching – a highly legible text is produced from a reasonably small font size.  From the photos you will see what a pleasure it is to read and handle this Bible.

Beyond the basics of legibility and paper quality – you have some fantastic features not found elsewhere: namely a Bible Dictionary & Glossary that are most helpful.  This is in addition to standard KJV features such as The Epistle Dedicatory and Translators to the Readers.  Excellent Cambridge Maps are a part of this Bible, as well.  The Bible comes in 4 styles: 1. Goatskin (Red Letter) 2.  Goatskin (Black Letter)  3.  Calfsplit (Thumb-Indexed) 4.  Calfsplit (without the Thumb-Indexing)

IMG_1573This Bible offers a wealth of reference material–a glossary, concordance, dictionary of names and phrases, fifteen color maps, and gazetteer. Bold-figure cross-references link passages of the text without cluttering the page. rates this among the best overall KJV Classic Reference Bibles available.

In addition, a presentation page and family record, India paper, gilt edges, ribbon markers, and a real leather binding make this a very attractive Bible. See our photos on Facebook.
