    This is my second Allan Bible. My first was the NASB Reader in red.

    When the NASB came in I instantly loved it. I have nothing but good to say about it in every way. But I had read so much about the famed Allan flop. Here’s how it is:

    Don’t get me wrong, that’s a very flexible and floppy cover. But I didn’t get what all the hype was about. I’ve seen others make Bibles just as flexible. Then my ESV New Classic Reader came in.

    Now THAT is a flexible, floppy binding! I actually was disappointed when I first handled it because I thought I must have received someone’s returned Bible; it seems already quite broken in compared to my first Allan Bible. But I looked through it thoroughly and can find no hint that anyone else has been using this Bible. It really is that flexible right out of the box!

    I’ve had my Allan ESV NCR in brown highland goatskin for five days now and I love it. The leather is so soft and smells wonderful. I love the darker brown color, and the honey color ribbons compliment it nicely. The paper is very nice with a kind of off white cream color that prevents glare while reading. While not lined matched, the paper is opaque enough that I don’t find it too distracting. What else can I say? I went through the whole text block and leather lining and could find no flaws. Allan makes beautiful Bibles!

    Great Bible. The best I have used so far. I had a crossway calfskin before this, but Allan new classic readers is way better. The paper is opaque enough you don’t have to worry about bleeding if you use a good pen or highlighter. This is an excellent Bible. I highly recommend it.

    This is definitely a high quality Bible. This particular one was bound by Charfleet, and it is flawless. I had previously purchased this exact same model directly from Allan, and it came with scratches on the gilding, and the the headband was crooked. However, it is clear that Charfleet has stepped up their quality control, so do not be afraid to purchase this Bible. As for Evangelical Bible, they are excellent.
