Update: December, 2022.
Schuyler and Cambridge Bibles are filling FedEx trucks every day here! Schuyler Quentels/Canterburys and Treveris as well as Cambridge Topaz and Clarions are are most popular editions. Once again we are faced with our best year yet! (I think this across the board in the publishing world!) Schuyler and Cambridge will both be coming out with surprises in 2023! Stay tuned.  Please be certain that inflation will affect the Premium Bible market!  Energy costs in Europe have increased about 3 times since the war in Ukraine began.  As of Saturday the 17th we highly recommend the $7 Fedex (2-3 day option) to get your Bible by Christmas.  (Embossed Bibles will take longer…)

Obviously recommendations are extremely subjective—but with many years in the industry, here are a few Bibles you can not go wrong with!

1. Schuyler Quentel Range: This setting is the most popular in the premium Bible world. These essentially come in 3 formats – Classic Size, Personal Size and Wide Margin. (ESV NASB NKJV NLT NIV CSB RSV) The KJV version is called the Canterbury.
2. Cambridge Topaz.  This has become one of Cambridge’s most popular setting.  Available in the ESV KJV and NKJV
3. Crossway ESV Omega.  (Blue, Green, Purple) A top rated ESV Classic.
4. Schuyler Treveris: ESV and KJV.  This uncommon setting has risen to the status of best seller!
5. Nelson NKJV Single Column Reference. A solid premium.
6. Crossway ESV Study Bible – Not many premium offerings, but such a solid resource!
7. Zondervan NASB Single Column Reference.  A popular wide margin!

JOURNALS: ALL IN STOCK! Not exactly a Bible translation, but definitely a perfect accompaniment to your Bible. All of our Journals are designed in the USA, bound in The Netherlands with paper milled in Spain (north of Valencia).  Our Journals use the exact same leather as our Bibles and colors should match their corresponding Schuyler Bibles. The Journals have 234 lined and numbered pages with a table of contents and ribbon marker. Check them out here.

RSV: Schuyler has published an RSV Quentel Bible. The RSV is the “father” of the NRSV and ESV.  So far the reviews for this Bible are fantastic. Here is Tim Wildsmith’s review.  

: CSB Quentel is in stock.  CSB Holman Goatskin – a great verse by verse CSB Bible. Holman’s best CSB yet.  Schuyler will be publishing the CSB Personal Size Quentel in 2023. Cambridge plans a CSB Diadem for early next year.

Zondervan published an NASB single column in Goatskin, and recently released the NASB Grace and Truth Study Bible in their Premier Collection, as well. Cambridge also has a full array of NASBs and plans the Diadem NASB (1995) for release in late 2022. Allan has some NASB in stock. Not sure how long they will last! Cambridge will have their NASB Topaz in stock soon…

For a multitude of reasons, premium Bible demand has exceeded supply in the last year or so. In the case of Schuyler, virtually every edition is being sold out at a rate that surpasses Schuyler’s ability to republish. For many books or products this is an easy fix: Simply increase supply. In the case of Schuyler (and I would include Cambridge & Allan) increasing production is complicated and certainly cannot be accomplished by a simple “flip of the switch.”
Most book production is a highly mechanized event. I have witnessed book production in some of the world’s largest factories and have marveled at the genius of thousands of moving parts, conveyor belts, folding, cutting, turning, stamping, gilding –all producing books without so much as a human finger involved in the result, save the one that touches the “start” switch. It’s truly a tribute to mechanical engineering and economies of scale.
Edge-lined binding (Schuyler, Cambridge & Allan – as well as a few others) is another process altogether. Though the form of an edge-lined Bible resembles that of its mechanized cousin – their creation is completely distinct, as are their qualities. Cambridge has estimated that approximately 30 people have laid hands on an edge-lined Bible before it reaches the owner. To give but one example (Schuyler has been posting video and pictures at times) – every Schuyler bible (when it is in book block form) is taken to a room and put in a vise (if you’re British – vice). Men and women put on masks (before COVID) and take out their spray guns attached to ink canisters and spray the edges. The pages are dried and then sprayed once again for the deep colors that we appreciate – and which cannot be replicated via android automation. We all know what happens when you put too much ink on that Bible….it bleeds!
Ok. Why am I writing about bleeding Bibles? (or hand cut edges, corners, sewing, embossing, rounding, etc.)? More craftsmen and women need to be trained to keep up with the evolution of the premium Bible market. We can’t simply order more leather and paper. (And trust me – ordering our leather and paper is another story altogether.) We must train Homo sapiens to create handmade Bibles. We intend to do our best to rise with this growing tide of high end Bible demand. We ask our Bible community to be patient when you see Bibles frequently “out of stock” or “coming soon.” We are increasing production, but we must do it with more people, not simply more ingredients and automation.
This is one of the reasons increasing production is not merely a “flip of the switch.”

Schuyler’s most popular format is its flagship Quentel® Series. It is consistently a best seller at evangelicalbible.com.  Published in the ESV, NASB, NKJV, RSV, CSB & NIV, the Quentel® is available in regular and Personal Size editions. The KJV edition is called the Canterbury and is also available in a Personal Size and Wide Margin editions. Here is a chart of all Schuyler Bibles.
