  1. Josh Bernard

    Great Bible, great quality, I do wish the paper was slightly thicker. A 36 GSM would be perfect. I understand it would be thicker but the trade off for writing and transparency would be worth it. Hope this happens some day.

  2. Ryan Todd

    Love this Bible! The PSQ is a perfect everyday carry! The Schuyler quality never disappoints and I enjoy the layout and font. Certainly planning on getting the CSB PSQ next year as well.

    P.S. I would love to see this in the green/red FY combination that I got my regular Quentel in. That would be amazing!

  3. Randall

    This is the 2nd dark green PSQ I’ve bought! The first I gave away due to not being able to read as well as I used to.

    Well, after being challenged by my oldest daughter to have my eyes checked, I found that I just needed some readers, and can’t believe how easy it is to read anything and everything! Therefore I decided to pick this up again.

    This is just an absolutely beautiful Bible. The green color is amazing, the leather is so soft, and I just love the portability. I work as a Hospice Chaplain, and this is a perfect companion for visiting with patients in facilities and in their home.

    I also picked up a purple Stridon NASB (you must get one, trust me!) and have been going back and forth today reading them.

    Thank you for producing the most beautiful Bibles in the world!

  4. Philip Melgren

    I bought thr dark green PSQ as a travel Bible especially when flying. I have a number of full size Quentel bibles and they are all awesome. The PSQ does the job very well. The font size would be too small for me as an everyday reader, but as a traveling bible I highly reccomend it. Well done Schuyler.

  5. chodge47

    What an exquisite bible! This is officially my favorite bible that I own. I have a regular size Quentel but I must say I prefer the personal size much better. It fits perfectly in my hand and the print is still very readable. The color is a dark forest green and is absolutely beautiful. I love the red under gold gilding as well. This is very well made.

    Even more, the shipping was very fast for USPS. I ordered this only five days ago not expecting to get this before Christmas but it arrived on Christmas Eve earlier than expected. I highly recommend this bible, the money is most definitely worth it.

  6. Ransome

    This is the first Schuyler I have bought — and am extremely pleased with the purchase. The dark green looks very classy. The yapp protects the pages and the guilding when carrying the Bible in my hands.

    The font and layout are very easy to read. The two ribbons are a beautiful forest green. The maps and list of kings and prophets for Israel & Judah are also quite a lot better than the average Bible maps I have seen elsewhere.

  7. John Notestein

    This is the fourth Schuyler PSQ that I have purchased, which says a lot for the quality of Schuyler Bibles. All of these will one day go to my children and grandchildren, so I only wanted to purchase the best for them. The PSQ is the perfect size to hold and read, and it feels so good in the hand. They are small enough to carry anywhere, yet the text is so easy to read. The green leather is the perfect shade and looks beautiful. The way they are constructed ensures they will let several lifetimes. Thanks for make such great quality Bibles!

  8. Joshua Ng

    A preference before I start talking about my PSQ purchase. I own the Schuyler Quentel Credo; it is one of the best Bibles in the market made with some of the highest quality material. I adore my Quentel Credo and I read it every day. I also reference a lot of the Creeds from the back in my studies, particularly the Westminster Confessions of Faith and its Catechisms since I am a Presbyterian. The inclusion of other creeds from other denominations also aids my understanding of their belief systems and doctrines.

    But there is one problem with the Quentel – It is too big! Before purchasing it, I thought it is close to the size of a Crossway ESV, but the Quentel Credo is larger than that and very inconvenient to carry around. I also do not wish to damage the guild and papers of the Bible since it is too nice!

    This leads to my purchase of the PSQ. I chose the green one, inspired by my friend’s green Latin Bible. It also fits my daily color scheme as I wear mostly black, but one other black item in my collection is boring sometimes. Making the Word of God standout before you is best.

    The first thing that I have noticed upon unboxing is Schuyler retains the quality of the goat-skin leather in both the Regular Size Quentel (RSQ) and the PSQ. It is flappy, soft to the touch, and smells like real leather (always a plus in my book). The paper is thinner (at 28 GSM opposed to RSQ’s 36 GSM), but in its thinness does not curl up due to humidity, and is also smooth and soft to the touch just like the RSQ. Text and page matches between the PSQ and the RSQ, perfect for study and note-taking. If you own an RSQ, you will get a very similar product in terms of quality and production value.

    Of course, there are differences between the RSQ and the PSQ. First of all, it is smaller and lighter, maybe 3/5 of the size of the RSQ. This makes traveling with it a lot more convenient than the PSQ. And because it is smaller, reading it with one hand is also easier than the RSQ, as the RSQ tends to have the edge columns flaps over my hand when reading. The font is also smaller, but not so small that it is unreadable. I am still young in my age (Which the Word of God commands me to fear Him in my youth), so I cannot comment on readability with aged eyes on the smaller font. But I have read reviews elsewhere that our senior brothers and sisters still find it very readable. In fact, I personally favor the denser text in the PSQ over the RSQ since my eyes won’t have to travel too much while reading. I was also used to the Omega text block from Crossway prior to switching to Schuyler, which featured denser text blocks.

    I have also read or watched a review elsewhere that says the PSQ has difficulty laying flat at the beginning of Genesis and in the end of Revelation, as opposed to the RSQ. This has been true for my case, but as the reviewer said, the more you use it, the more it will break-in and laying flat on Genesis and Revelation will become easier. This is the only downside I can think of.

    TL;DR and also verdict. If you have the budget to only have one really nice Bible, even if you are Reformed and confessional like me, the PSQ is the way to go. It is significantly more convenient to carry around than the RSQ, very readable, but still maintains the premium quality that Schuyler upholds. If you are confessional, I suggest purchasing a Banner of Truth booklet of your favorite confession as your companion for your travels. If you wish to look for something even smaller, however, the Pitt Minion might be a better option.

    This Bible is fantastic. I’ve spent a lot of time and money looking for the ‘perfect’ high end Bible. After much searching, for me, this is it. The edge-lined goat skin is nice and flexible. The green color is nice. It’s dark. It looks black or brown at a distance. It’s a unique color that won’t draw unnecessary attention to itself. The paper and gilt are first rate. The type is bold and easy to read (I’ve been working with a pitt minion the last few years). This Bible checks the boxes for portability and readability. If you get a chance, this is the Bible you should pick up.

  10. Keith Nye

    The Church of England of which I am a member has a bias towards the NRSV, which is a very readable and reliable translation, but reading many translations and going to my Greek New Testament, produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge, I find the English Standard Version does what it says on the label; combining word for word accuracy with readability, literary excellence, and depth of meaning.
    So much for my preferred translation. I decided that with my 75th birthday approaching I would treat myself to a premium Bible and that to me meant Schuyler.
    When it arrived I was not disappointed, I was in fact absolutely delighted with the quality and craftsman ship that had gone into the binding and the print with my diminished eyesight, was perfect even in the dimness of the evensong pulpit.
    The best part of course was the unfailing Word of God contained within the perfect binding, I could ask no more.

  11. AShamoun

    Received this bible and absolutely love it. The goatskin cover is incredibly soft. The type is on the smaller side (8-9 font), but definitely not to small to read. The paper is also very nice and has that delicate but durable feel. The green isn’t super dark, but I think it’s beautiful.

    I would trade the maps and cross references for slightly larger font, but that would be my only suggestion. Overall, a beautiful personal sized bible that will be alongside me for a long time to come.

  12. Steven Hermanovitch

    Just received my ESV PSQ today…I ordered it two days ago and although the shipping estimate had it arriving on Monday, June 18 with free USPS shipping, it arrived in only two. So “Well done!”! When I opened the shippng box and saw just how small the actual black presentation box is, my heart sank a bit: Did I buy a Bible whose font is too small? After my initial review, I remain unconvinced either way. I bought the PSQ so I can have a nice Bible that is also portable for preaching and study on-the-go and its size definitely provides that. I’ll have to work with it for a couple days…As for the quality, everything I’ve heard about Schuyler Bibles is true. It is truly beautiful.

  13. rewillard

    What a beautiful Bible! I love the suppleness of the cover, the deep rich green color and the very legible font. I’ll be using this Bible for many years to come.

    Evangelical Bible’s service is fantastic. I’ll be shopping with them in the future for sure.

  14. Stephen George

    I absolutely love this Bible!! It’s a fantastic size and the quality is awesome.

  15. jcmsvr

    Overall quality of the bible is great. It’s not perfect as you will notice some imperfections. That being said, the copy I received had several creases in the pressed cross symbol. It creates more of it even with slight bend of the cover. It looks very unsightly to be honest. I did contact them with the issue and I was told that this is not unusual and was told to enjoy it. If you want to pay a premium of 185 and take your chances and see those unsightly creases schuyler won’t disappoint. Personally, I wouldn’t buy again.

  16. Mark Holloway

    I bought this one for myself before Christmas, an awesome small Bible, very readable. Green has never been one of my favorite colors but I figured it was one of God’s when I look around. I am glad I went with this color, the brown lining and ribbons is nice too.
    I discovered there was no concordance the other day in church when I went to use it. There are some lined pages in the Bible, before the maps. I like them in the very back, but I will get used to that. Those, lack of concordance and location of note paper, were the only negatives I have. And the positives far outweigh them. The portability, the size, the readability, the print, the maps which also have some nice info in the corners of the pages on a few of them, also among the maps is a list of kings and prophets of Israel. Of course it has a quality binding, and is made with quality materials. It’s a little pricey but unfortunately all quality Bibles seem to be. If you can afford it then I would say, “buy it”.

  17. David B.

    This Bible, as all Schulyers, is amazing. Other than with the bright Firebrick Red and sometimes nearly orange British Tan colors, Schulyer has succeeded in consistently producing Bibles which are elegant without approaching ostentatious or gaudy. They are true artists.

    This version falls in line with this. The leather is soft, wonderfully limp, and inviting. The colors on the leather cover and the gilding are even. The color combination of the two gold ribbon markers, the red/gold gilding, the gold inlays on the cover, the dark green cover, and dark brown inner cover is nothing less than delightful. This green version somehow looks both royal and rustic all at once. An incredible feat, which I cannot even claim for the other colors this is offered in, as perfect as they all are in their own ways. I would not be surprised to see it in the back pocket of a lumberjack, yet I would be equally unsurprised to see this in the hands of a high Anglican bishop in ornate ceremonial vestments. It is majestic yet rugged.

    Another major hats-off to Schulyer for this entire Personal Size series: The readability of the font is astounding. They are truly scientists when it comes to presenting fonts. I have seen many other Bibles with the same sized font that are not as readable. They achieve this by using the right combination of ink, font style, font size, print clarity, line-matching, paper-type (contrast between paper and ink/paper is thick enough to absorb ink so as to be bold and crisp) etc. The cross references are also extremely readable because of this even though they are sized in an even smaller font. People with poor eyesight can sometimes read the font in Bibles like this only to find out that all the cross-references are still useless to them because they’re too small. Not with this PSQ.

    Another huge reason I bought this is that the pagination between it and my full sized Quentel is the same. This means that in a year or two, I’ll be able to find more texts easier and quicker whether I’m preaching or backpacking because both my small and large Bible present the same verse on the same page in the same location on that page. My photographic memory is going to help me so much. This is helpful to be using the larger one for preaching and desk reading while using the other for hospital visits (I’m a pastor) and vacation. The pagination idea is yet another way in which Schulyer outshines, in my opinion, all other Bible publishers. This Bibles are for the layman, but they truly shine in the rigorous life of pastoral ministry.

    Downsides: I still gave these personal size Bibles 5 stars even though I have a few gripes simply because the following cons are things which are somewhat inherent to high-end compact Bibles. That said, “Dear Schulyer, if you could amend these things, your incredible product would be even better.”
    1. I wish these personal sized Bibles had no maps and instead had more lined paper in the back. I feel like maps are for Bibles a person studies with, which would be any study Bible, classic reference Bible etc. This one is for portability though. I picture a guy sitting up against a tree in a mountain wooded area, seeking the Lord through His Word in the placid inspiration of nature, frustrated because he just ran out of room to write in his Bible. “Maps?!” he cries. All joking aside, there’s only a few lined pages, so it seems like an afterthought almost. For a company that doesn’t seem to do anything halfway, this seems like it was only done halfway. The back of this Bible doesn’t know what it is. “Am I a reference Bible, or am I a portable Bible meant for lone devotionals in environments my big brother Quentel is much too cumbersome to venture?” The cross-references make sense. They help you find things. After all, we want to be able to use these things when our phone dies. The lack of concordance makes sense too. You have to cut something to make this compact Bible idea work. But the maps? I’m not sure I understand why they matter at all. More lined pages please, Schulyer.

    2. The hard-spined Jongbloed binding will take some breaking in. I like my hard spine on my full size Quentel because it makes for strength and makes it rigid enough to stand on vertical lecterns. But the PSQ has trouble staying open to Genesis and Revelation when first opened. No worries – this will be remedied with some consistent usage. I just note it in case someone is looking to purchase this and thinks it’s like one of those beautifully floppy Allan Bibles. It is not. But I wouldn’t want it any different. Small Bibles like this don’t stand the test of time when their spines are not strong and hardy. My black calfskin Crossway Psalms edition is a case in point. After about 6 months of use, the spine is showing visible wear. It will still last, but it is clear I won’t be handing the Crossway down to my grandchildren the way I think I will with my Schulyers.

    3. This is the biggest one for me: I realize these are top-of-the-line Bibles, so they’ll be expensive. But I don’t understand my a Bible built with half the material of a full sized Quentel only costs $15 less. I never feel “robbed” by Schulyer because their products and EV-Bible’s customer service are so outstanding…but it makes me wonder: “Am I underpaying for the full size Quentel? Or am I overpaying for the Personal Size Quentel?” The price points seem totally inconsistent. The $185 I paid is worth it for a younger guy like me. I have many years of ministry left, Lord willing. But an elderly friend of mine was turned away from this Bible because it seems like just too much hard-earned money for a compact Bible. I think a price somewhere around $150-$165 for the goatskin and $90 for the calfskin would be more appropriate. The again….these folks are professionals: there may very well be a good reason they cannot offer these at a lower price point.

    All in all, thank you Schulyer! Your products are well worth every dollar spent, not only because they’re the Word of the LORD, but because they’re elegant work-horse Bibles which I thought couldn’t exist until I found these ones.

    We can’t me materialistic about these Bibles; that would be sinful and dishonoring to the LORD. But it is definitely nice to present God’s Word in the most helpful way possible. Folks, you won’t regret the purchase of one of these Bibles. In eternity…you may regret that new TV or those season tickets or that nickel-plated Ruger…but you won’t regret time you spent in God’s Word. Buy a Bible which will take care of you. Buy a Schulyer.

    May the LORD receive all the glory, now and forever! Rom. 11:36

  18. Paul Shealy

    I received mine a couple days ago. It is just magnificent. It’s amazing how well it is put together. I had high expectations but this was even better than I had hoped.

    It is a lot easier on my eyes that I thought it might be.

  19. W. Steven

    Got this today…spectacular! The green is not as dark as I thought it would be, and that makes it even better. These are great small bibles with easy to read type even for us old timers with glasses! It is the perfect small bible….great to carry around, fun to read…perfect size!
