Pitt Minion Bibles are notable for their synthesis of function and style and have been a feature of the Cambridge list for many decades. The text is presented in paragraph style using a modern font that delivers the characteristic combination of clarity with economy of form–producing a compact, slimline Bible that is exceptionally clear and easy to read.

The NIV Pitt Minion Reference Edition now includes the New International Version text as updated in 2011, supported by cross-references, a concordance and maps. The words of Christ are printed in red, and the Bibles are printed in the Netherlands on India paper in paste-off bindings, with ribbon markers and presentation page in a range of fine leathers.

    I was looking for a reasonably inexpensive travel Bible, and this Pitt Minion fit the bill perfectly! The calfsplit leather is so much better than the older French Morocco ones, and as I have several of these, I know it will break in nicely. I am not a fan of red letter Bibles, but Cambridge does the best of anyone I’ve seen. And the paper and binding quality can’t be beat. This will be a lifetime companion both at home and while I’m traveling.

    For those of us whose primary translation is the NIV, it has been a daunting task trying to find premium editions with the revised update; however, Cambridge has finally released the 2011 NIV in their classic Pitt Minion format. I want to thank for making these available at the best prices possible!

    The calf-split leather is much more flexible than French Morocco. Honestly, I am glad Cambridge has transitioned over to this better grade of leather. In fact, the ruggedness of calf-split makes for a great beater bible.

    This edition only comes with one ribbon marker, which is a little frustrating considering the ESV Pitt Minion in IMITATION leather has two ribbon markers!

    Like other Pitt Minions that are not goatskin, the calf-split edition has only gold gilding. While I prefer art-gilt, the gold gilding is very rich and elegant. Many of the today’s lower quality bibles look like the publishers took a can of gold spray paint to the edges: not so with Cambridge bibles!

    The interior of the bible is why I gave the lower rating. This is edition is a red-letter bible, which I personally do not like (mainly for aesthetic reasons and not theological ones), yet this wouldn’t be much of an issue if the red print wasn’t so light. This is really odd for Cambridge. Their other red-letter editions employ a really dark, crimson red for the words of Christ, but in my copy the words seemed like almost a shade of pink. I hope mine is just an oddball because Cambridge produces the best red-lettering out there.

    The concordance has 2,474 word entries. This edition also features Cambridge bible maps as opposed to the Moody Atlas found in older Pitt Minions.

    Here are a few last things for those who have never owned a Pitt Minion before. These are characteristics that may or may not be deal breakers for you.

    *The end of one book and the beginning of another will commonly be found on the same page, so not every book of the bible starts on a new page. This can be annoying if you are not used to it.

    *Pitt Minions use only whole chapter numbers at the top of the pages: not chapter and verse.

    With so few choices, the Pitt Minion is the best compact of the NIV on the market. I would definitely sacrifice font size for a quality made bible any day over what is currently available on the shelves at your local retailer.
