    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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”.

    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

    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.

    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!
