    This is not a review since it hasn’t come out yet, but I can’t wait for this plain cover Bible. I have 3 other Schuyler’s that have the cross on the front but when I saw this one I knew I had to have it. Can’t wait till they come!!!

    I’ve had several Schuyler Bibles and this one is one of my two favorites, the other being the out of print Westminster KJV. The leather is softer and the grain smaller than the other Quentels I’ve got, both full size and personal size. The binding is more supple and flexible too, more like an Allan. I also prefer the simplicity of the plain cover and very tasteful imprinting of the name on the spine. It is absolutely sublime.
    I was bitten by the premium Bible bug a few years back and have bought and sold many. I’ve had Allan, Crossway, Schuyler, premium rebinds too. I’ve been searching for that one Bible…that one Bible that just “feels” right in my hands…that Bible that doesn’t distract me by being too heavy, too stiff, too this…too that…the Bible to wear out. I’m pretty sure this is it.

    After decades of going through synthetic bibles, I feel as if I’ve finally come home! This bible is just exquisite. The black goatskin leather is is such a classic. The gilt is a dark rich gold and the cross stamped into the cover is a unique and reverent touch.
    Inside, the layout is great for reading. The paper is a beautiful off-white and the print is evenly dark on every page. I really like having the references along the bottom, away from the reading area. And there aren’t any one-word lines in the poetry sections, so the verses don’t appear ragged. But it’s the red chapter and reference numbers that really add a pleasant visual touch to the page. I’ve never had a bible as luxurious as this one. It makes you want to open it up and just lose yourself in the reading.
    It’s a bit hefty, but I’ve gotten used to it. That’s the tradeoff for having a large font and good quality paper, both of which I really wanted. I initially had the personal size, which is just as gorgeous, but I really needed bigger text. The original size Quentel has been updated over the years and this 2018 version is pretty much perfect for my needs!

    An amazing bible. I love the Goatskin, the font, and the art gilding. Evangelical bible has great customer service as well. The Schuyler bibles are amazing all around and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a top of the line premium bible.

    If you want to change your bible reading -want to go deeper – change the bible you read. So, if your goal is more joy while reading and chewing on the word there is one simple recipe you need: find the finest paper, printing and page design. It’s not the cover, binding, yapp, ribbons etc. – it’s what’s inside that counts. It’s what your eyes see and fingers feel when you’re in front of a verse that should be your single most important buying criteria. I’ve not personally held and read all the premium bibles available. I don’t need to. The Quentel ESV makes my mornings deeper and richer. My “search for the perfect bible” is over.
    IMPORTANT***Before you make your decision, understand that the august 3rd party reviewers you may have looked at have not written about the current Quentel ESV you are considering. They wrote about the earlier versions in 45 gsm or 38 gsm papers. The current one is 36 gsm. They scare people off by comparing this to giant study bibles. Not true. MY ESV study bible is 2 1/2″ and 3007 pages. The Quentel is 1 3/4″ and 1651 pages = 30% thinner and (to me) weighs 50% less than the study bible. As a comparison, my Nelson NKJV is 1 1/4″ and comes in at 1711 pages. The Quentel is much closer to a standard bible than it is to a study bible. So, what’s the big deal? The reviewers have hurt the Quentel by doing this. Bottom line – yes the Quentel is a little heavier and thicker than average bible but it is SO MUCH MORE! I can tell you this bible is easy to carry around – no problem. This is a readers bible not a pocket bible.

    I love my Green (which I never thought I would buy green) Schuyler ESV as it is gorgeous! This is a dumb question admittedly, but can someone explain to me how they do the Art gilt, I love it but I cannot figure out how it is done?? Thanks for tolerating a frivolous question.

    Now THIS is a Bible! I’ve bought two Quentels so far, and I wanted my second purchase to be in the ESV. I have to say, everything about the Quentels is ideal. So much thought and superior craftsmanship goes into these Bibles, what can I say that hasn’t been said better than I could? It’s exquisite!

    I just opened my new ESV Quentel and this thing is next-level. The leather is better, it lays open better and the art gilt is redder. Also the yapp folds a little. All of this gives a bit more of the feel of another premium Bible we all know and love along with the qualities that make the Quentel so awesome. Homerun! The one!
