New Cambridge Paragraph Bible with Apocrypha Personal Size Black Calfskin

The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible presents the KJV text as intended
by the 1611 Translators, using their surviving notes. The text is
presented in paragraph form with marginal notes. Modern spelling and
punctuation are used for simplicity and ease of use.

This scholarly edition first came out in 2005 in a large format, and
like the early King James Bibles, included the Apocrypha. It was
published to critical acclaim and is now issued in Personal Size
editions, either with or without the Apocrypha, to satisfy different

    O.k. so this just arrived, and upon initial inspection I find one fine, soft, beautiful Bible. I immediately opened my new treasure and proceeded to FAQ check it against the KJVO websites available to find that this KJV checks out PERFECTLY. All the trappings of a supposed counterfeit have been avoided. I only point this out so that KJVO’ists will know that this is a safe purchase inasmuch as the textual content and message are PURE. Now on to physical characteristics. This bible in my opinion has nearly NO bleed through. (A problem earlier noted by other buyers of past) I have some quite expensive bibles with significant bleed through, this isnt one of those. Based on this FACT! the need for the text to line up on reverse sides seems redundant as it ISNT an issue. I guess if you read your bible with a candle lit behind each page as you read one page at a time in a dark room this may be an issue but to my glasses wearing 51 years old eyes that tire quite quickly, this Bible will not be an issue for me. Now for the font size. There again, although smaller than I usually buy based on my aging eyes it seems to me that Cambridge put thought into picking this font as for its size it is quite easy on the eyes. Very easy to read and nice bold presentation against the fine paper chosen. I obviously can not comment further on the structure of it being a paragraph bible since I havent read it yet, but in the few moments it took me to check the content against the web sites to prove its validity it seems quite easy to read, and proficient at chapter and verse look up. The binding is clearly smyth sewn and very flexible. The covers of the binding are glued from what I can tell, but from a company like Cambridge I dont think this will be an issue. I purchased the version with Apocrypha as I am Catholic. I truly appreciate the ability to enjoy the KJV as it was presented in 1611 in it’s original form (Textually speaking) as a Bible thats intent was unification, not the divisive nature Bibles of today. I will be purchasing a second one of these treasure ASAP, as I can see this becoming a valuable piece of Christian History. As with many new Bibles this one has been met with detractors. I find their claims unfounded, and in many instances fictitious. This Bible for all purposes is a TRUE KJV as Authorized, and should be considered as PURE by the Cambridge Purists. This Bible may have not met sales expectations monetarily speaking, but I guarantee it will hopefully without revision be reprinted in the near future and probably be in great demand. If you are on the fence about purchasing this Bible I hope I was able to clear up any possible issues for you and that you can rest assured, this bible will be a valuable addition to your library, or collection as is my case. This will be Bible #16 for me all of which I consider treasures, but this will sit at the top of my list and be most likely my go to Bible

    I’ve had this Bible for a number of years. Mine is the black calfskin bound by LEGO. I see the one star review and I am posting this because I couldn’t disagree more. My experience is more in agreement with the 5 star review above. The paper is opaque and there is very little ghosting. Print is dark, binding is tight and supple. Lays flat and the cover is indeed soft and ‘liquid’ as Mark Bertrand sometimes says. If it is still the LEGO (Italy) binding I highly recommend this Bible.

    I am genuinely ‘honored’ to ‘technically’ being the first person to review THE NEW CAMBRIDGE PARAGRAPH BIBLE WITH APOCRYPHA personal size black calfskin edition [ISBN 978-0-521-19881-3] for this website. I’m confident I won’t be the last to ‘shower’ kudos on this ‘landmark Bible’ expressing GOD’s Holy Word.

    For starters: The binding is simply wonderful. The leather is ‘supple and luxuriant’ to the touch… ‘rose petals’…..or perhaps more accurately ‘smooth as the bottom of a new-born baby’.

    And the ‘aroma’ of the leather is so fragrant… that of the ‘finest leathers’ used in making new pairs of ‘dress shoes’! Not only will you love ‘holding’ this Bible, but I suspect you will enjoy ‘smelling’ it too. (The ‘slipcase’ supplied with it is an ‘added plus’. I just ‘love’ carrying this Bible knowing that the ‘slipcase’ greatly ‘reduces’ the risk of damaging the binding on this beautiful book when I do take it with me to church or bible study.)

    But most importantly though is the ‘outstandingly-scholarly’ achievement of editor David Norton in bringing the ‘glorious text’ of the KJV into the 21st century.

    Talk about ‘spot-on’: Prose is printed as prose. Poetry is printed as poetry. Spelling and punctuation is ‘totally’ in line with modern standards for the English language!
    Bring ‘on’ the Rapture!!!

    And let’s not lose sight of the fact that this Bible is one of those ‘rare’ editions of the KJV that includes the KJV translation of the Old Testament books called ‘by some’ apocryphal. (With ‘due respect’ to those ‘puritanical’ Protestants still alive ‘out there’…..speak for your selves…..we are no longer ‘living’ in the 17th century…..thank goodness.)

    Where else in the ‘Old Testament-Old Covenant’ Scriptures will ‘we’ find the prophesying of the ‘coming’ of Our Lord in language so ‘direct and clear cut’ as in the KJV translation of the Second Book of Esdras (see 2 Esdras: 7:26-29). [Note: ‘Esdras’ is the Greek language variant spelling for the Old Testament prophet called ‘Ezra’.]

    Just including the ‘restored’ text of this one book alone to the ‘KJV canon’ will invite a ‘plethora’ of new interpretations and commentary on the Books of Daniel, Ezekiel, and Revelation for certain. I can ‘hardly wait’.

    I’m no prophet myself, BUT… my estimation this ‘new’ edition of the KJV guarantees that the Books called Apocrypha will no longer be ‘hidden’.

    It’s about time…..mankind shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY word which proceeds out of God’s mouth. The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible with Apocrypha is a ‘fantastic’ testimony to this wonderful and mystical truth!!!
