  1. Sharon Miller

    This bible is very impressive. It’s almost perfect in every way—the quality craftsmanship is outstanding! I’m loving the 11pt font—makes it so much easier to read without straining my older eyes. The only drawback to this bible is the font size of the concordance. It’s extraordinarily small—would that be a size 2 font? I’ll have to keep a page magnifier/bookmark in this bible to assist in using the concordance. Overall, this is a beautiful edition and I’m looking forward to using it for many years to come.

    Thank-you for this most beautiful Quentel Bible by Schuyler! This is my first ESV that has easy to read, 11 point font. It is not the color purple that is shown in picture. Much better than picture – a dark, rich, elegant, eggplant purple. With beautiful ribbons. Absolute perfection. The goatskin is just beautiful. Love this!! I have a few more Quentels, but my Schuyler Canterbury In goatskin green and this dark purple ESV are my favorites. You won’t be sorry if you order this Bible. It is, indeed, a treasure!

    Beautiful bible. I forgot how heavy the Quentels are but well worth it. I love the deep purple. You can’t get anything pretty. The smell, oh my, the leather smell is awesome. This bible is so readable. I do wish it had more cross-references but I can find those in my BLB or other bible resources. I have order the PSQ also to carry in my purse. This Quentel is for my desk and bible studies.

    My Quentel arrived a few days ago and I must say I’m very impressed. I have looked for one flaw but have yet to find any. The cover is soft and flexible, the binding is straight, the gilt line is straight, the gilding is perfect. The paper is very nice and doesn’t stick even out of the box. The print is clear and readable. I will certainly be recommending Schulyer to my friends.

    I have both this Bible and the personal green NASB. This is the finest goatskin I have ever seen. It is thick and strong yet soft and supple. The bible lays flat and opens in the hand like butter. It is from a aesthetics POV a perfect bible. The text block is well stitched and is constructed as well as I would expect from a $200+ Bible. The readability on the off white pages is topnotch the text size good and practical.

  7. Glen Gerstman

    I own several “premium” Bibles, but the quality of the Quentel easily surpasses them all. For that alone I must give it 5 stars.

  8. Gerald

    This is the finest bible I have ever owned. The rich goatskin cover is soft and wonderful. The pages in this bible are sumptuous, beautiful, perfect, flat, flexible. The print quality and choice of font is excellent. The extra plus, if you could ask for anything more, is the red text used for chapter number – and especially the footnote cross reference numbers in the cross-reference blocks. In most bibles you have to visually sift through a block of small print to find the notes for the verse you are reading. Not In this bible, this verse number is in RED TEXT – and it jumps right out at you. If you are comparing this to something like an Allen classic reader, here are some differences. The Allen, is thiner, being a reader, and its aroma is almost intoxicating – but the INSIDE of the Quintel is far nicer in my opinion. I do like the slightly smaller font size in the Allen classic reader. The larger font size of the Quental makes it great for use on the pulpit. They could drop it a point or two – the bible would be just as readable, and you wouldn’t be reading down so many line breaks for a given amount of verses. The font size in the Allan classic reader is PERFECT. Even with the center cross-reference column in the Allan, more words still fit on each line due to the smaller (and 100% perfectly readable) font size. Be aware that at the time of this writing, Allen is having terrible quality problems with the classic readers. You may not be able to get one for a while.

    The purple is gorgeous and the Bible is just the right size. I love the fact that it has three ribbons and the pages have just the right thickness and texture. The font size and the maps in the back are excellent. I have owned several Bibles, but I desperately needed one that was symbolic and more dignified, and this totally exceeded my expectations. They did a tremendous job with this Bible and I cannot say enough about it.

  10. Tammy-Beth

    It’s absolutely beautiful. The purple color is rich. The pages are thick, but not too thick. The print is well type set, large and clear. Easy on the eyes. The paper color seems to have the tiniest bit of an off white tint which makes reading a joy and seems to eliminate a lot of glare. Classy bible. Mine will be getting a lot of use. Well done Evangelical Bible. Thank you

  11. Robert

    Absolutely magnificent Bible. It is like owning a piece of fine art, yet constructed to be
    used every day. Love the deep purple color. I own all of the ESV Quental Bibles (except British tan) and I can tell you each one is more beautiful than the next. What a great way to honor God’s word. I can’t recommend these Bibles enough.

  12. Billy

    The only reason I didn’t give this Bible 5 stars is because of the ribbon finishing. This is my first Schuyler, Schuyler really needs to do better on the ribbons mine were not finished out that well and each one had glue hanging from the ribbon. As far as the paper goes excellent! Text block is the best I have ever seen in a Bible very elegant also the dark purple is beautiful!
