  1. David Stynchcombe (verified owner)

    This Bible is beautiful! Very well made. The font size is perfect. The overall size makes the Bible the perfect carry Bible. There is not a better NIV for the money. As usual, EB had great customer service.

  2. Rev John Wilderspin

    I had this Bible for 3 months when the text block began to separated from the cover somewhere around Rev 20. I’ve since passed it on to my wife who’s very pleased with it & replaced it with a NIV Clarion so now we’re both very pleased

    In response to my review above I would like to add a few notes in reference to the durability of this Bible. After only 1 month of use the cover has separated from the book block. I did not purchase this specific Bible from evangelical Bibles but they were very helpful with getting me in contact with Thomas Nelson. Thomas Nelson does not offer any repair warranty but did offer to replace the Bible. However, I have multiple notes, highlights, etc within and would prefer repair. The staff at evangelical provided contact info for a reputable book restoration company. With all of this being said, if you are in the market for a premium Bible I would definitely suggest going with a Schuyler Bible from Evangelical Bibles. I have a Quentel that I have used for several years, and when I say travel I don’t mean it has sat on a desk, it travelled with me until I got the Zondervan Thin Line. The Schuyler has NO signs of damage. If you are looking for a Bible to carry to church in Sunday’s thenbthe Zondervan Premium should work well. If you want a workhorse Bible that WILL last for years then don’t choose this one.

    Due to curiosity more than anything I recently added the NIV Comfort Print Heritage by Zondervan to my library. This Bible is printed in China, as are most price point Bibles, and I was concerned about the quality. Now on to the actual review.
    At first glance I was not impressed with the “Comfort Print” but after two weeks of reading, I will admit it has grown on me. The font is very readable and I often read in poor lighting conditions. However, it is not line matched and there is minimal ghosting.
    One might also take note that this Bible does not include references. If you must have a reference Bible then this one is not for you. The book block appears to be constructed well while remaining very flexible. I am using this Bible while teaching Sunday morning Bible study and often have to hold in one hand. It accommodates this very well. I am very fond of the overall size.
    I am one that enjoys “marking up” the scriptures I am studying. I find this Bible accommodates this very well as there is no bleed through using Pigma Micron pens in various colors as well as Zebrite highlighters. As this is a slim line Bible the margins are quite small but underlining text works well. I often draw arrows between passages to associate them and have found no bleed through when doing this.
    The Goatskin cover is very, very supple. The natural grain is present but is not as visible as other quality Bibles. The leather lined cover is a very nice touch as is the perimeter stitching and gilding on the block. The ribbon markers are of the correct length and width for a Bible of this size.
    If you are in the market for your first “quality Bible” this would be a great platform or to be used as a travel Bible, the size is perfect. If you already have other quality Bibles, Schuyler, Allen, etc, you will most definitely find a few inferiorities. If you are a first time premium Bible buyer you will be very fond of this Bible. However you should beware, if this is your entrance to the premium market it will not be your last. When you find out the quality still increases from here your next order will be a Schuyler. God Bless

    This is absolutely worth the price; however, it’s not a Schuyler.

    This large print thinline has a great footprint. The goatskin cover has a grain, but it’s not pronounced. The cover is thick yet not as thick as a Schuyler. But this cover is more flexible, so if you want a Bible that you can roll or fold in half, this works for you.

    The ribbons are wide but not as thick feeling as a Schuyler. The ribbons are light blue, medium blue, and dark blue. The ends are not cut even on mine.

    In short, if you want a large print thinline to preach from, this is it. There’s no map and no concordance—to keep the footprint thin.

    If the NIV is your translation of choice, if you want a soft foldable goatskin cover, if you want a large print thinline to preach from—sorry, I’m a preacher and large print thinline is perfect for hiding a notes page or typed wedding ritual—then this is for you.

    This is a premium Bible, but please do not expect Schuyler quality. Yes, it is absolutely worth the price.
