  1. Mike

    Very fine Bible. Paper is superb. Bleed through is minimal. Binding is good. Price is a bit steep when compared to others in the same economic range. 4 out of 5

    just received a 2nd Bible and I am once again very disappointed in the quality and workmanship of this Bible bind is falling apart…its glued not sewn and the ghosting is horrible I wasted 116 on this Bible…needless to say I wont again..

    I’m only going to add that the paper is bright white with a blue hue. And while this bible isn’t really a thinline, it’s not that thick. It’s thinner that the SCR bible, but a wee bit thicker than, as, the ESV thinlines. Great bible.

    I reviewed this Bible 3 years ago I am hoping when it becomes available again I will purchase it and hopefully the binding is better and there is very little ghosting I just wish there would be a date for release of this Bible

    I received mine a few days ago. I paid $100.00 for the Holman KJV before it went out of print and that one was quite a bit nicer. This is a good bible, but it is kind of stiff and the paper isn’t all that great. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not awful. It’s certainly better than you will find on the shelf at a bookstore, and I do like it and will read it daily, but if you’re looking for a jaw droppingly well made bible, keep looking.

    I’m kind of biased because I love the NASB translation and Lockman Foundation… but, I know there is always a, “but” after the review starts the way this one did. The, “but” in this case is the hit and miss nature of some of the Chinese manufacture processes. This would have been a great Bible if fit and finish quality of the work were better. This is $100.00 Bible and should reflect that in the finished quality. Their was a section in the back where the overly thick card paper edge was glued improperly so that the white paper edge was visible and exposed.

    also on the front of the Bible the card paper was splitting on the bottom corner. I don’t know if it was not glued well, bent during shipping from China, or the card paper that was used was just to thick and rigid for this application.

    The Head and foot areas of the Bible could do with more precise attention to quality. The notches could be smaller.

    The ribbon markers could be a thicker, higher grade of ribbon.

    Lockman needs to move away from using the higher clay content shiny paper for the presentation pages and maps and move to a flat paper. The glossy ones are too prone to falling out. The presentation page should have been a couple of pages in so that you could actually write on it. It is glued to the card paper that attaches to the binding and cover.

    I think if Lockman Foundation left the manufacture of their Bibles that cost less than $50.00 in China it would be alright, but with their middle and top end products they really need to bring it back home. They sent me a copy of the hardcover Charles Stanley text Bible that is made here in America and it was excellent. I loved the paper and the binding. If this Bible got the same treatment it would be worth the $100.00 price tag, but as it is I would have to pass. They did send this Bible to me for free to be reviewed on my blog.

    With all the cons, I don’t want you to get the idea that this Bible does nothing right. It has a sewn binding, and a calfskin cover. It includes two ribbon markers and it is pretty thin considering that it is a real reference Bible. You get all the benefits of a full reference Bible with a pretty thin profile.

    The Side Column Reference Bible I did a review on previously had more attention paid to fit and finish. It was better so I overlooked some of the smaller cons like the opaqueness, excessively notched near the head and foot, and ribbon quality. The opaqueness isn’t near as bad as other Bibles I’ve seen. I just mention it because it isn’t as good as some in the same price range. It seems like a more flexible card paper was used to connect the cover and text block on the side column reference which I love. This one con seems to cause others or make them more noticeable. It is difficult to design the perfect Bible because, well it is subjective. We like what we like though, so you can either make a ton of variations and try to please a lot of people, or you can make a few, really well made Bibles and hopefully sell a bunch of them to a smaller crowd.

    The bottom line is that you still get a great translation, in a sewn binding that is very flexible and lays flat, with genuine calfskin cover. I would just suggest they make these here in America or lower the price.

    this Bible is already falling apart at the binding, very cheaply made and not worth more then $30.00 in my opinion. I have already highlighted several verses so sending it back is not an option, it actually fell apart after the highlighting. I would never recommend this product or this company to any customer….

    In the short time I’ve had this Bible, I’ve really enjoyed it. The leather is extremely soft, lays flat and feels nice to the touch. I have always enjoyed the NASB and believe it to be one of the most accurate translations at this present time. The type is very crisp and easy to read.

    Recently switched to NASB from ESV. Everything about this bible I am satisfied. I am extremely picky about my bible, almost to the point of OCD, but this is just awesome.

    Will give the text block a 5 rating. The leather cover finish a 2 star rating. I wanted it for the large print but Foundation publishing has lost it’s glamour with me. The inside cover is about 5/16 inch short on the text block top and bottom on both sides of the Bible. My old one from years ago was perfect. Just don’t buy it for the soft leather cover. The leather is probably ashamed it got cobbled up this way. Lockman spoiled me and now they almost make me angry at the sloppiness of the worksmanship on the cover. Buy one for less if you are just reading the text.
