The Turquoise Reference Edition of the King James Bible was created in the 1920s and has stood as a superb and well-loved example of classic Cambridge typographic design for over ninety years. The large format allows the text to be presented in a comfortably readable form using a bold, traditional typeface with cross-references. For this edition, the concordance has been freshly typeset, and the Bible includes the Translators’ Preface, their compelling account of the principles underlying the publication of the KJV in 1611.

Black Goatskin with full leather linings
Red under gold art gilt

Red-letter text
28 gsm Indopaque paper

    I just want to make a brief comment on my purchase. I ordered 2 Bibles from this company and do love what has been ordered. The first being the Cambridge Turquoise KJV black Goat skin and the 2nd the Schuyler Canterbury KJV dark purple for my wife which has been preordered and is now in transit. The Bibles are not an afterthought but waited at least six to eight months before deciding what to purchase. Cambridge has always been my bible of preference but didn’t want a wide margin so when I saw the Turquoise I watched all the Youtube channels about it and was convinced this is what I wanted. so I ordered it and to my surprise it was the best Bible I thought I purchased. Now this is the problem I’m having. on page 74 of the Cambridge there is beginning a slight protrusion of the pages to which I was informed this is called “stepping” (never heard of that phrase before) and that it is not uncommon in the beginning and ending of the Bible. Said that this is not a defect and that this kind of happens when the binder rounds the spine. After this I will never order another Cambridge and to deem this not a defect is a misstatement. I love the Bible but probably never use it cause to others it may not seem important but to me the issue will always be there.
    so the Bible is nice but Cambridge has always had issues with a protusion so be mindful of that if and when you order one.

    I received my Cambridge Turquoise Bible and compared it to my other Bibles. The red print in the Turquoise is noticeable better than in the Schuyler Quentel — and I’m not knocking Schuyler either. I have been very loyal to Schuyler Bibles but after checking out the Turquoise I would say this Bible scores a little better than Schuyler Bibles do. So if you want a KJV with very easy to read red print and with quality paper, then look no further than the Turquoise.
    Though Cambridge could still improve a little here. I also compared the Turquoise with a very old NT from World Publishing Company which must have been dated in the 1950s or 60s. The World Publishing red print is absolutely the most superior I have ever seen in any Bible.
    All and all, Cambridge was wise to step up their Bibles by bringing back the Turquoise. Too many red print Bibles out there that put no effort in making the red print legible. I own a few Bibles where the red print is nearly invisible. I encourage Cambridge to keep the Turquoise in print. Its the best Bible Cambridge sells. I am very happy with the overall quality of this Bible.

    This is a review for the Turquoise KJV Reference Bible, Black Goatskin. I have purchased many custom bibles from They have always been professional to me. I have never had any issues with the shipping times, packaging, product, or the personal engraving. I have purchased Allen NASB Goatskin leather, Allen KJV and NASB Goatskin leather. Schuyler NASB and KJV Goatskin leather bibles in many different sizes and colors. These are the best of the very best……. until now. I just received the Turquoise KJV Reference Bible, Black Goatskin and I am very impressed with the Leather, page layout, no ghosting, the binding, print quality and readability. I love this bible. Is it better than Schuyler or Allen? I think it’s built just as well. I prefer this text to the Allen Longprimer because in my opinion the text and style are better. The readability is better in my opinion. I am super picky and have been collecting custom bibles for 10 years so believe me when I say that if you like KJV and want a readable, very well built bible that feels amazing in your hands and very readable then Do yourself a favor and get this thing now before they are gone. Cambridge has been in business for 400 years. They know what they are doing.

    I try not to write reviews because of my arthritis is so bad it hurts to type but I just received my Turquoise Bible today and it is the best Bible I have ever owned.

    Just wanted to inform potential buyers that the issue mentioned above at Leviticus 20:6 has to do with the printing press plate scanned for the new edition. I own a vintage Turquoise 24XD and 44XRL (1976 & 1977 respectively) and the top of the “h” appears bent to the left, almost broken off the letter in both Bibles.

    I highly recommend the new Turquoise, especially since a brand new vintage copy is a rare find. The blue goatskin I bought is a treasure to behold. Thank you for making this classic Bible available again. God Bless in the Name of Jesus all your work and devotion to Scripture!

    Note: Typo is found in Leviticus 20:6, it says ‘turnetn’ and should be ‘turneth’. It can be fixed with black ink pen.

    Aside from that, this is an amazing KJV Bible. Very traditional/classic look and exceptional quality. Very much on par with Schuyler and other top brands. I have a Schuyler and the build quality is very much the same. I think overall Schuyler is a bit better depending on your preferences (the goatskin on my Schuyler is a bit thicker). I do however prefer the font style in this Cambridge and the layout is excellent and so readable. I also like the maps more in the Cambridge than my Schuyler, the colours are more rich and vibrant to me. I did not find any other issues with mine other than the typo.. otherwise its 5 stars. If I could rate it 4.9/5 I would.

    What an outstanding and beautiful copy of God’s Word! It does not get any better than this if you are looking for a premium larger font KJV red letter Bible. This Bible is such a pleasure to read and is so easy on the eyes. I prefer red letter and the Turquoise along with the Cameo are the best two red letter versions I have seen. It is very consistent and a solid, bold brick red. I am mid 40s and my eyes are starting to take a hit, and the Turquoise suits my needs perfectly. If you are on the fence about this one, give it a shot. From my experience, I think you will love it!

    First I want to thank Evangelical for their prompt service and quick delivery. This is my 4th Bible from Evangelical and I am nothing but thrilled to have and hold my new Cambridge Turquoise KJV. To my surprise it is the same Bible (with improvements) I purchased at the Baptist Book Store here in San Antonio many years ago. It is like finding an old friend. I pulled the old one out which is quite worn, and matched it up with new one and though all the text matches position perfectly, there is no comparison with my new one in quality. Thank you for another great product and great service. My Alan and Schuyler will have to take a back seat for a while

    RRP of $310? I got this lovely bible for £131 – Cambridge always overrate their products but here’s the thing; this Cambridge is one of the only ones (there might be another) that has a real leather liner – they are cost cutting – also their misty overspray is pathetic- a mockingly pitiful art gilt. On this bible however it’s good. This Bible has the best font in black AND red. If you were only to get one Cambridge then get this one before they corner cut that one too.
