KJV Pocket Reference Black French Morocco with Zipper – 6″ x 4-1/2″
The Pocket Reference Bible is a new addition to the Cambridge list of KJV editions but it actually represents a familiar edition–the elegant Pitt Minion–in a very compact and portable format. The Bible has red-letter text and the Cambridge bold-figure cross-references. Tiny though it is, it includes a pronunciation guide and glossary.
The Bibles all have gilt or silver edges and a ribbon marker. The choice of binding styles includes two with traditional fastenings rarely seen on modern Bibles–a flap and a zipper.
Type size: 4.5 pt Times Semi-bold 421
Page size: 5.25″ x 3.625″ x 0.875″ (132 mm x 92 mm x 22 mm)

I’ve given 5 stars but would like to add the proviso that you should NOT expect to receive what you see in the photos, which is rather disingenuous, unfortunately. This being said, however, what I DID receive I do love. So to start off with, I’m going to explain my disappointment. The leather has none of the sheen or smooth grain of these photos, and the ridges on the spine are far less pronounced, nowhere near pronounced enough to be captured the way the photos have. Also, the zipper pull is different – a small thing. It’s NOT the same Bible. The leather is more dull in sheen, with a more pronounced grain. One other seemingly small detail is that an “i” in Genesis 1 is almost missing, so the print quality is less than the “premium Bible” quality one expects from Cambridge – though it is just one letter (so far), you and anyone who loves Bibles can imagine what a disappointment this flaw can be. But as far as things go, that’s it for downsides. This Bible feels excellent in the hand, fits in the back OR front pocket of my Levi’s, smells good when you open the cover, and has this really nice, neat and tiny font – I LOVE tiny fonts for the page real estate they open up, but just be warned, if you are not used to reading seriously tiny fonts, get a pair of readers to take with you when you journey with this little dagger. I am partial to miniature things, and I’d say this little Bible would be on the large side of tiny – as I said, it fits in the front pocket of a pair of jeans, so that is a nice, portable size to take with you. I bring mine to work with me, even though I could read my digital Bibles on my phone, because there’s just something about the physical real deal, you know? At any rate, so long as you know what you’re getting, you can’t go won’t with this little Bible, and the price is right.

This is another excellent Cambridge product in a leather binding with a brass zipper safe from carrying hazards. The font is small but readable due to excellent print quality. Great stocking stuffer! And as Dickens’ Tiny Tim concluded in the “A Christmas Carol” story, “God bless us everyone!”

What a lovely little KJV Bible! Cambridge did a wonderful job in their production of this small reference Bible. The font size – WOW – my how it’s so very small! Yet, the clarity of the print job is such that I can read the text clearly and with flow (my vision is 20/20, non-corrected). Additionally, somewhat hesitantly, I ordered this Bible imprinted with my name and in Goudy Script utilizing both upper and lower case lettering and now…I’m certainly glad that I did because the imprinting looks superb on this Bible. While I’m not typically a fan of imprinting my Bibles; yet, as this little Bible will be one that travels with me to places far outside of the home I therefore thought that imprinting this Bible might assist me in hanging onto it in the future – I’m now glad that I made this choice. The workmanship and the material utilized as apart of this Bible is nice all the way around. The zipper is quality, looks attractive, and functions smoothly. I’m glad that I made this purchase and I’d like to say, Thank You to Evangelical Bible for having made this transaction a seamless and pleasant exchange – Recommend!

Just within 2 days after I have ordered my Pocket Reference Edition, I have received it today! What a quality product that Cambridge produced such a magnificent piece of qualitative workmanship. And the good folks that helped me to get my Bible are an awesome group of individuals, especially one of their own people saying Happy Easter in a nice note on my invoice! When I ordered my Bible, It was suppose to be received within 5 days to my residence in California, but I got it within 2 days! Thank you! Thank you! We will do business again with you, evangelicalbible.com. *****

Just got this awesome little Bible in the mail. What an awesome and handy piece of work. I especially like the zipper,it keeps the Bible pristine and clean. I also like the Cambridge text, though quite small, the clarity of printing helps with readability. Thanks Cambridge and Evangelical Bible.

Just received this little beauty. I bought this, as I wanted a Bible I could stuff in my softcover computer bag when I fly for my job, where walking through airports with as light a bag as possible is a premium for me. I have a couple of the Pitt minion’s in the next size up, which I’ve taken with me before, but that requires taking the box along as well, so that the Bible does not get damaged. Unfortunately, the box sustains wear and adds weight. I can tell I’m going to love this. I’m going back to the KJV, which I first read when I was saved, which is really cool. Having a zipper on it means the pages will be protected, no matter what part I put it in my bag. I’m really excited to have this baby. Best news? Today is MLK day, and package tracking showed it was to arrive tomorrow…after my flight left. However, the United States Postal Service continues to deliver on Sundays and holidays, and they just dropped it off….SWEET! Thanks to Evangelical Bible for another great product and customer experience. I’ve bought 5 or 6 Bibles, and EVERY TIME, the service has been impeccable. I know it’s God’s Word, but as a business person, it’s refreshing to see excellence in the Christian world in how they do things. Kudos to EB again!

This is a beautiful bible. Binding is great and high quality. Red letter is not too overwhelming. As a compact bible it is great for on-the-go and travels. The only negative is the font size a 5 or 6 font size at best. Unless you have great eyes make sure you have your reading glasses on for this one. If you need a KJV for the road this is the one!
