I received the Cambridge NKJV Topaz Reference Bible today and it is absolutely stunning. I wanted an NKJV Bible so did a lot of research and it was between the Schuyler NKJV Quentel Imperial Blue Goatskin and this Cambridge NKJV Topaz Dark Blue Goatskin. Both Bibles are very nice, high-quality, top-of-the-line Bibles, but the tipping point for me was the verse-by-verse layout in the Cambridge Topaz which I prefer over the paragraph layout. I’m so glad I chose the Topaz because it is really, really nice. The goatskin, the paper, the ribbons, the layout, everything about it – it is nearly a perfect Bible. Cambridge has hit it out of the park with this one. Five stars from me!

I received my beautiful blue Cambridge NKJV Topaz quickly after ordering. A ‘new Bible Day’ is always a special day for lots of reasons. The Bible is certainly true to it’s ‘Premium Bible Status’ with the craftsmanship and quality as good as any out there. The Bible is a joy to open and read (smells good too). I purchased this one because I specifically wanted a Verse-byVerse format for preaching. The font size and spacing really stand out when lying on the Pulpit. My old eyes have no issues with finding and reading verses. The paper is excellent quality and exquisite to the touch. It’s a pleasure just to feel the paper. I haven’t made any notes yet, but will. Others have commented on no bleed-through or show-through (these aren 2 different things). The paper is very ‘white’ in comparisson to other Bibles like RL Allan which has a ‘creamier’ color to it. For my eyes, I think it’s more helpful in making the text stand out. Both are good! The blue under silver gilt tops off the experience of reading and preaching from this Bible. It’s simply stunning. There is a very little of gilt bleedover on the thicker pages at the front and back of the Bible but none on the pages itself. It’s not a deal breaker for me but thought I’d mention it. Thanks EVB for great products and customer Service!

This is an unbelievable Bible. The craftsmanship is outstanding. I would recommend this NKJV Bible over the Schuyler NKJV Bible, since it is verse by verse. The font and print make reading easy. Footnotes are easier to read than Schuyler. Also, the NKJV Bible doesn’t seem to omit verses that are found in the original KJV. I find that to be helpful as well.

This Bible is amazing! I have a couple of Schuyler and Allan’s but thought I’d try the Cambridge Topaz because it had the features I wanted. I hoped it would be close to the quality of the other two. Well, it is as good, if not better! The font is perfect, the paper so wonderfully smooth, text block is exactly what I wanted. I got the dark blue goatskin (incredible quality and feel) with blue under silver gilt. The three different shades of blue ribbons are perfect.
I love it so much, I ordered another one in green that I will use as a gift. (maybe) Cambridge, you’ve really outdone yourself with this one, and Evangelical Bible, as always, is an awesome company to go through to find these beautiful collections of The Word. The shipping was so fast, and it came wonderfully wrapped.
It’s my favorite Bible, at home, in church, and in Bible Study class. Thank you so much!

A home run! Since Cambridge moved their printing and binding to Jongbloed, some of the renderings offered have been a solid “ok” with synthetic liners and ribbons and overall aesthetic. However, the Topaz stands as a real winner. Gone are the synthetic liners and wimpy ribbons. It seems Schuyler has rubbed off on Cambridge (even though Jongbloed produces both) and we are offered leather liners and really outstanding ribbons and attention to detail. For years Cambridge was the leader in high end bibles, with Allan taking over from 07-12, and then Schuyler has firmly entrenched itself as the leader more recently, this offering from Cambridge shows how they used to be, and hopefully how they continue in the future. The typesetting is just excellent, and the verse per line set up is excellent for preaching. It is a unique take on an old classic. You will not regret purchasing this Bible.

This is a great verse by verse edition of the NKJV. The leather is very smooth on my edition and very supple. I love the red letter for black text and black text for red letter this is probably my favorite feature! I would give this five stars but, there is a mistake in the gospel of Mark OT quotes are all in italics but, no where else in the NT. The italics are supposed to be for supplied words only. Other than this mistake I think this is a fine edition although I must say, I still prefer my Schuyler NKJV bibles to the Cambridge. God bless!

I just received my dark blue goatskin NKJV Topaz and it is absolutely stunning and amazing. The dark blue color is darker than the pictures show, thankfully. Absolutely gorgeous goatskin leather. The verse by verse format is excellent for preaching. Print size is great. You can’t go wrong with this Bible. No negatives. Absolutely the best NKJV out there. I rank it a bit higher than Schuyler, which is also excellent. It has fast become my favorite NKJV. Highest recommendation I can give. Jon
