13 reviews for Cambridge ESV Topaz Reference Bible, Dark Blue Goatskin

  1. Maximo

    Great bible a little below Schuyler not as good as Allan. The review copy I saw was remarkably uninspiring – it’s a decent bible but no better than their Turquoise which I like a lot (and still consider it the flagship of Cambridge). My black Goatskin Turquoise cost me £131 – this Topaz is much more expensive but as far as I’m concerned it simply doesn’t justify the much higher cost. You would do well to get the rare Cambridge leather lined Turquoise which is just as good and much cheaper.

    At last an ESV in verse-by-verse layout and one that is printed by Jongbloed. I have been looking forward to getting one of these since I first heard it was in preparation. Now it is here and I couldn’t be more pleased with my copy. The text is very readable and well presented. I find the color of the maps dazzlingly attractive. The goatskin cover is soft, flexible and beautiful. Because of the verse-by-verse layout and the high quality of the printing and binding, I personally do not think any other ESV printing currently available surpasses this one. It is well worth the money.

    When Cambridge announced that their new Topaz Reference Bible would have 10 point font, verse-by-verse set up and line matching, I was very interested. I needed to purchase an ESV bible to read along in church during sermons. I am very happy to say that it is perfect for this use! The verse-by-verse feature and larger text is so helpful for keeping my place while reading it. I want to thank EV Bible for providing a sample PDF of the book of Matthew to read. It really helped convince me that this was the bible I was looking for.

    Now as to the construction of the bible: I have several beautiful Schuyler bibles which I love and consider among the best in premium bibles. This is my first Cambridge bible, and I must say that I am impressed with its quality. The dark blue goatskin leather (darker than the picture) is gorgeous and supple. The ribbons are high quality that are comparable to ribbons on Schuyler Bibles. The art gilt is beautiful. It is gold over blue which adds to my reading pleasure. The paper is satiny smooth, the print nice and dark. In addition to these great features, it is also a red letter addition. I do love to read the words of Christ in red. The color is deep, not that kind of lighter red you see in less expensive bibles. This bible also comes with a great concordance, and 15 colorful maps printed on semigloss paper that is thicker than the scripture pages. Also included is a wonderful map index printed on the same type paper as the maps. This has everything I would ever want in a premium bible! Thank you, Cambridge for making such well thought-out Bible, and thank you EV Bible for excellent customer service as always!

    I received the blue goatskin Topaz today and am very impressed. Solid quality. Reminds me of BMW cars – well made and old world craftsmanship. The spine is well designed to lay flat but have support. The 28 gsm paper is thin but very opaque. The print is clear and crisp. The red letter text is very dark – almost a brown and very readable. The concordance is excellent and the maps are great. Very much worth the price!

    A fantastic Bible that I’ve already used to preach from. The text is bold, crisp, and clear–easy to read on the surface of my pulpit. The verse-by-verse format makes finding and reading a verse very easy. This Bible (and I also own the Black goatskin version as well) is ideal for my ministry needs. I even find the concordance to be a usable size.

    My wife purchased the for me as a graduation gift. This Bible is excellent. I have purchased a Schuyler NLT Caxton, ESV Wide-Margin Heirloom, NIV Allan, and an ESV Allan from Evangelical Bible. I have to say that, out of the box, this Cambridge Topaz is my personal favorite. It is the perfect size for teaching and preaching. The leather is soft and the grain has a great texture to it. Size wise – it is very similar to my ESV Wide Margin Heirloom, which had been my primary preaching and teaching Bible until now. The problem with the Heirloom was page curl. This paper feels a little more weighty and less flimsy than my Heirloom, so I don’t suspect this to be a problem. The font type and size are wonderful. The text does not run into the gutter at all, and the references on the side are a nice touch. Highly recommend the Bible.

    A very nice Bible, that anyone familiar with Cambridge will feel right at home with.
    I opted for the blue goatskin, which is a good looking shade of blue (a bit lighter than navy blue, and just a bit darker than Schuyler’s imperial blue-which is my favorite).
    The dimensions are basically the same as the Cambridge Turquoise Reference Edition, so if you are familiar with that, you know what you will have here.

    One thing that I will mention for any prospective buyers, and something that I have not seen mentioned in any reviews that I have read or watched online, is that the Topaz is prone to page curling depending upon ambient air temperature and humidity.

    Overall a nice looking, easily read vbv, red letter presentation of the ESV.

    Grace and peace to all of you, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Well done by Cambridge. Wasn’t sure I wanted to spend over 200 on a Bible when there are so many great ones less than that, ESV Omega in particular. But the Blue Topaz is awesome. The color, the craftsmanship is second to none. The cambridge maps are always special with the details they add. I’m happy with this purchase.

    Just received my blue goatskin ESV topaz bible by Cambridge. The sheer quality of this bible blows me away from the sumptuous blue goatskin with soft calfskin liner, Smyth sewn, the special paper, printed by jongbloed, etc…. This is one of the finest bible’s I own and is going to be my daily reading bible. One thing I really like is the font, It’s not only large but also printed darker than other bible’s I own. The Lord’s words in a dark red are especially nice. Cambridge continues to awe me with their premium bible’s. Looking forward to more like this in other versions. Simply superb.

    Recently purchased the Topaz in blue goat skin. The leather is sumptuous and a real pleasure to hold as it falls open in your hand. The font is large and is easy to read. I am especially please with the verses number references in red making very easy to find a reference. Like most fine Bibles the paper fine. I would have like something a little heavier but that is my only problem with the Topaz and it would certainly have not been a deal breaker. I am most pleased with my Topaz. I heartily recommend it if you are in the market for an ESV. You’ll find nothing better.
