    I have been using the Schuyler NASB (2nd Edition) for over a month and a half now. It is a Bible I have had to grow into, I was not immediately taken to it. The biggest hurdle, one I still struggle with, is its size. I had been using the Crossway (original) ESV Legacy, rebound by Leonards, for the past four and a half years, which isn’t a small Bible. Comparing dimensions prior to ordering they looked close, but the little bit extra size of the Schuyler it quite a difference in hand.

    Something that I think plays a role in it seeming bigger is the type of leather I came from compared to the goatskin on the Schuyler. My Leonards bound ESV has very “grippy” leather, making it very easy to handle, where the Schuyler is slippery. That said, the leather is very nice and high quality. Generally, I prefer nothing on the cover, but the cross on this Bible is tasteful and I dare say I prefer it with it, being it is a larger surface; I like it better in person than what I saw in pictures.

    The Bible is very easy to flip through and turn to a desired page, which I like, I assume due to the thickness of the paper. The front and back covers feel stiff when flipping through, especially compared to my very limp ESV, but I think it has more to due with the few stiff pages at the beginning and end of the Bible; I also believe it is already loosening up, which all Bibles do. The paper is yellowish in color, where I think it would be better described as “antique”, which I sense is a look they were going for, I may be wrong. My ESV Legacy has very white paper and if given the choice, I would choose the bright white, although the color in the Schuyler is tasteful.

    There is some ghosting, although it has not been bothersome; I seem to be very sensitive to ghosting; I suspect the larger (11 pt.) font is the reason why it isn’t an issue. The line matching isn’t perfect, my Legacy does a better job. The paper is very high quality and feels nice. In the New Testament the NASB capitalizes quotes from the O.T., in other NASB Bibles they have changed the font size to make it distinct, Schuyler did not do this, which I believe would be an improvement if they did.

    The Legacy I was using is in single column paragraph format, which I am fond of. With the print of the Legacy already smaller than I would like, I ruled out the Cambridge Clarion as a choice, so I choose the Schuyler because although it is double column it is still paragraph style rather than verse by verse, a decision I don’t regret. As far as double column layouts go, they did an excellent job with putting references and translation notes at the bottom as they did; it makes for a clean layout and easy to find them.

    The Bible opened up very nicely right out of the box; I cannot recall if it opened up flat straightaway, but by the time I thought to pay attention to that, it did. High praise for the binding. I also like the layout and printing on the spine, not overdone. One area that would be a nice improvement, in my opinion, is add more yapp.

    I find myself drawn to this Bible, looking forward to reading it. To be honest, I don’t know if it is the Bible itself or possibly the change in reading the NASB, which I have used in the past; I suspect a little of both. Not to get caught up in translations, but reading the ESV for the past 9 years has allowed me to appreciate the NASB much more and understand some of the choices of literal renderings being put in the margins. (This can also be attributed to better resources to look up verse make up.)

    A true test of a purchase is whether you would purchase it again. While I fully admit that I would love to handle the Allan Readers NASB, I suspect for reading, which is what matters to me, I would prefer the Schuyler because of its layout. I have a Lockman NASB that is the layout that Allan uses. I would purchase the Schuyler NASB again.

    Wishes: Bigger yapp and more room to write. The only way I can see accomplishing the latter without making the Bible any larger would be to use smaller print; doing so may compromise the great ease of reading this Bible, but maybe 10 or 10.5 font would be okay.

    A side note I will mention. Prior to getting this Bible, I was struggling with an eye issue in my right eye when reading; I had been working on new eye glass lenses for several months, struggling to get them right. I received my new prescription at the same time as getting this Bible and my eye issue has gone away. I have wondered if it was the prescription, the Bible or maybe both. I was recently reading another book during my sons’ football practice and my right eye started to give me trouble again. While I feel the eye recovery is a combination of the two, clearly the larger print has helped me eyes. FWIW

    Overall I really enjoy this Bible. Recommended.

    This is a beautiful and pristine bible. A work of art. The custom and careful craftsmanship is overwhelming and can only be fully appreciated after holding and seeing this bible in person. I so appreciate this book that I purchased another one two days later for a friend. Although Schuyler is somewhat new to the market as compared to Allan and Cambridge, they have certainly done their homework and delivered on their Quentel series with full execution. Highly recommended!
