SKU: ESV SCT Brown Goatskin


This beautifully laid out single column text Bible, based on Crossway’s ESV Readers Bible with 2016 text, is bound in a sumptuous mid-brown/dark tan natural grain goatskin, with an attractive semi-yapp and leather-lined in dark brown with matching endpaper, gilt line inside, red under gold page edges and 3 antique gold ribbon markers.

The book block is taken from Crossway’s ESV Readers Bible and is US black letter text, with a paragraphed text setting laid out like a novel, printed on 30gsm Bible paper and with 4pp Crossway maps and 32pp of Allan’s 5mm navy feint ruled writing paper for your own notes.

These Bibles are bound for us by Ludlow Bookbinders, a small family business based in the rural county of Shropshire, England, using a unique range of natural grain New Zealand goatskin. Each one is embossed with ‘Allan Binding by Ludlow’ on the inside back cover.

Page size: 7 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches  (195 x 135 mm)

Spine width: 1 1/2 inches (40 mm)

    I received this Bible today and was so impressed with the quality, the bible paper is top quality and the print is very clear. The layout for reading is wonderful and ofcourse binding and leather is as good as it gets. Thank you evangelical bible for offering these wonderful Bibles and the fast shipping.

    This is everything that I have wanted in a Bible. The ESV Readers Bible format has become my favorite for a everyday Bible, but it never came in a premium binding…until now. The goatskin is very pliable and luxurious and the text is exactly as the Crossway edition. This one checks all the boxes. Beatuful edition!

    Think this will become my daily reading Bible. It may or may not become my church Bible. I could see the lack of verse numbers hurting it for that purpose. But to just sit down and READ? This is a great version!

    Yes, the leather binding is excellent. Compared to a Clarion and an Allan Brevier Clarendon, I’d say the goatskin is as thick as the Clarion and as supple as the Clarendon – the best of both. Love the yapp and feel. In size, ignoring the yapp, it is about an inch taller and half inch wider than the Clarion. Just eyeballling it, I’d say the print is about the same size or SLIGHTLY bigger than the Clarion. Same thickness as the Clarion. Three long ribbons are nice, although I’m not a huge ribbon fan.

    But I think it reads better than the Clarion and much better than the Clarendon. It just draws you into the text itself. I didn’t realize how the verse markings tend to break things up until reading through this version without them! I find it easier to read a chapter size chunk of text for its thought and flow using this than using the New Living Translation with traditional text arrangements. The easy flow of the NLT with the accuracy of the ESV – what’s not to like?

    Well, it WILL be awkward in Sunday School when each of us is asked to read one verse at a time. Oh well! I guess I can use my smart phone for that.
