Cambridge NASB Clarion Reference Black Goatskin  click here for exclusive photos.

A Cambridge Clarion Reference Bible presents the text in a single column with the cross-references in the outer margin, giving the page a very well laid out appearance. The font size is a little under 9 point with generous line spacing. It is typeset in Lexicon No. 1, a modern digital font which has many of the characteristics usually associated with traditional Bible typefaces–in particular, a degree of readability more usually associated with much larger type.

The Clarion edition is the only NASB personal size reference Bible with a single-column paragraph format. The Bible has 15 new color maps and a concordance and there are two ribbon place markers. This is a Bible of the very highest quality, printed on India paper with art-gilt edges, Smyth-sewn for flexibility and endurance

    Today, I received the Clarion goatskin bible. I was totally prepared to send it back. Unsure of the size & thickness, I had assumed that my order was probably a big mistake. Well, this is a jewel! Small ( just a tad larger than the Pitt), but the font is highly readable and the size makes you want to carry it with you wherever you go. I love it. Sure, the goatskin is maybe not as fancy as the Highest quality bibles (lacking the inner gold embellishment stripes) but still it is excellent goatskin. The inner synthetic material doesn’t matter that much. What I love is the size and readability. I am 80 years and this is very readable. I will use it in the pulpit with no problem, and I expect this will be my go to readable text since it fits in the palm of the hand so nicely. I am excited to have a NASB that is so comfortable to carry. Well done Cambridge!

    This Bible is perfect.

    I’ve had mine for 10 months now, and it has broken in nicely. I’ve read through it 1and 1/2 times now and the cover has gotten a little softer, and it opens nice and flat, even though it was pretty good when new. I have had the page curl issue a few times, but only while at my church… Never anywhere else or at home where I do 99.9% of my reading. I plan to use this for several years as my primary Bible, then buy something with larger print because I am sure my eyes will start needing it before too many more years. But for now, the font size is great, and I love a single column Bible in this size. This is pretty much the NASB that fits me best right now, but I am eyeing the full size NASB Quentel for my next Bible in the future…

    First, everything about the workmanship of the Clarion is great.

    I have had the Clarion NASB Black Goatskin one week and write the review with the 60ish crowd in mind.

    After using double column format Bibles for the past twenty plus years, I’m finding it challenging for these older eyes (sporting progressive lenses) to track across the entire single column of the Clarion. I’m adjusting, but it doesn’t come easy. The format of the poetry on the other hand is easy and enjoyable to read

    I’m surprised that to some degree it’s easier reading the Pitt Minion’s smaller font in double column format. Go figure.

    Evangelicalbible did an awesome job in getting it to me in record time. I give them 5 Star. Thank you. The 3 stars are for the Bible.


    1. I like the size of this bible. Easy to carry around.

    2. I like the feel of the leather, though it would be nice if the inside liner was leather like the Schyulers are. I’d pay a little more if it were.

    3. I love the clearness of the font. Very readable since it is a smaller print.

    4. Wasn’t sure I’d like the single column layout but I love it. Not too fond of black letter. I didn’t see that when I was looking at details. My bad on that part.


    1. Backcover top corner some of the leather comes up because the stitching is too close to the edge. Not very happy with this at all and I almost want to return it. The cost of the Bible itself should ensure that edges would be sewn correctly.

    2. As everyone has said very cheap ribbons. Size ok but the floppiness is ridiculous and very cheap feeling. The ribbons in the Pitt Minions are better than these. What’s up with that?

    3. I don’t care for the books starting in the middle of the book, they don’t have their own starting page.

    4. Paper is pretty thin. Hasn’t curled up though like some have said it did. I hope not too much bleed through happens when I mark in my bible.

    Beautiful Bible. The goatskin cover is supple, the printing is excellent, and the Bible opens flat even when one turns to the Book of Genesis. The single column pages are easier to read than a double column format. I have a Schuyler Personal Size Quentel, which I really like, also. However, the Clarion cost less, and has a concordance. When attending a Bible study, church, or Sunday School, I like to have those tools available.

    This is a very nice Bible. I have not had any problems with page curl, and the leather reminds me a lot of my Cambridge Concord. In other words, it’s really nice! I still love the Schuyler Quentel as my preferred Bible for study, but this one has already taken a niche for reading. Its format just begs to be read. I’ll definitely pursue the Clarion in other translations.
