An Accessible Translation in an Elegant Binding

The New Living Translation was translated by 90 leading Bible scholars from the ancient texts. It employs natural, conversational English accessible to people of all ages and a range of educational levels, making it particularly suitable for people new to the Bible and for public reading.
The slimline Cambridge Pitt Minion format is widely admired for its compact but clear type and its elegant binding styles. In the NLT editions the words of Christ are printed in red, and there are full cross- references, a dictionary/concordance and maps.

This is a Bible binding of the very highest quality, printed in the Netherlands on very thin and light India paper, with beautiful art-gilt edges in a paste-off binding. The pages are Smyth-sewn, giving the books plenty of support and allowing them to stay flat once open. The cover is made from goatskin leather, a supremely supple and flexible material, which not only looks and feels good, but will last for many years.

Two ribbon markers
6.75 pt. Lexicon font
Page size: 6.875 x 4.75 x 0.875 (174 mm x 120 mm x 22 mm)

    This is an excellent bible and I am very impressed. True, the text is small but it is in a very clear and easy to read typeface. Many times, smaller text is wearying but not with this. It\’s a joy to read and superbly bound, worthy of the Cambridge name. I\’ve been wanting a compact bible in the NLT for some time and to be able to have a Cambridge is a real plus. The Pitt Minion is worth every penny.

    Cambridge has done it again, and this time with the New Living Translation.
    Anyone over 21 who uses the NLT knows how hard it is to find a quality edition of this translation. Heck, it is hard to find a version that doesn’t have graphics all over the cover.

    This edition is the anwser to the search. It has a wonderful goatskin cover that is flexable. That combined with the sewn binding allows is to open flat right out of the box.

    The paper is white and bright which helps to make the small font size readible. The paper is also thin but opaque, which means that that there is very little bleedthrough while keeping the edition thin.
    The overall look of this Bible is what I call classy. The grainy goatskin, great paper, art-gilt page edges and two ribbon markers make this edition look “old world”. To be honest, when you use the edition you sometimes forget that you are holding a NLT Bible. It looks that cood and that classic.

    The only drawback is that for some people the font maybe small; however, this edition does not claim to be a large print. It does the things well it is supposed to do.

    If you are loking for a high quality go-anywere Bible, the Cambridge NLT is the way to go.
    Be Encouraged:-)

    Currently, the best “personal size” NLT bible I can find on the market at this time. Things liked most: goatskin cover, handy size, color of the ribbons very complementary to the brown goatskin, lays flat when first opened. Things liked least: the inside is not leather but card-stock lined which makes the cover somewhat stiff, font is small and hard on the eyes, slight ghosting, and the ribbons are a bit thin. In general, I am happy with this bible, but not overjoyed.

    After being reluctant to purchase a Pitt Minion for the last year since entering the premium bible market, my son insisted upon having one for himself. I finally purchased it for him and I am very impressed! I use the Pitt whenever he doesn’t. I’m finding it difficult to put it down. Is the font small? Yes. However, the line matching and the font that Cambridge uses makes it very readable. The layout, footprint and readability makes this a winner. I will not hesitate to purchase it in my other favorite translations. Do not hesitate on purchasing this little treasure!

    I have recently switched my primary Bible translation from the NKJV to the NLT after spending several months living in overseas with my family, where I taught oral English at a university. My family had the pleasure of spending time with another family who has labored many years in translation work. Our new friends presented a well thought-out case for switching to the NLT. As my family prepares to head back to overseas I wanted to purchase the world’s most aesthetically charming portable Bible for our travels.

    I was looking so forward to getting my first Pitt-Minion. I had gotten the NLT Calfskin, brown. I first picked it up and it felt like bonded leather. It’s not soft like others had mentioned. The ribbon markers unraveled and where attached to the Bible is crooked/slanted and the binding by the opening is already coming unglued. I think I got a returned bible and this is probably why. The coming unglued is pretty upsetting. I love everything else but it doesn’t look good when the Bible first comes in and first time opening and coming unglued. As with what I did for the cheaper bibles I’ll glue it down. I’m a bit worried about the other Pitt-Minion I ordered from […]. I’ll get that tomorrow. It’s an NASB, my favorite.
