    This is my first time purchasing a premium bible and likely my last. I won’t go into all of the great aspects of this bible as they are already well established. Perhaps I’m a bit ignorant but I’m giving a 3-star review as I must honestly say I’m disappointed in the paper quality. It feels no better/durable than the paper used in the Crossway Thinline bible I purchase back in 2009 for less than $30 and still have and use though it has certainly seen better days. Based on previous reviews it sounds like I should have purchased this bible a few years ago when they produced it with better quality paper. In regards to the processing and shipping timeline was excellent!

    I have just received this beautiful Bible. The premium goatskin leather is soft and subtle. The 11 pt. Font is perfect, no reading glasses! It’s not a study Bible,
    but it has many cross-reference footnotes, concordance and maps. It opens perfectly and already feels comfortable to hold. I am thrilled and can’t wait to use it.

    I purchased this Bible 1 1/2 years ago but in the 36 GSM thickness. I have a personal size in 28 GSM (which is what this Bible’s thickness is now) and it is noticeably different. For a giant Bible like this, what does it matter to add .2″ more thickness and have pages that are more durable to accidental tears, folding, curling, etc? Still giving a 5-star review because I have MANY goatskin/calfskin/calf-split Bibles from Schuyler, Cambridge, Tyndale, Crossway and Zondervan. Schulyer a step above them all. People love to say that Cambridge is top-tier with Schuyler, but how this is even possible when they use a pasted vinyl liner?

    My biggest opinion is to get rid of the concordance, maps, cross-references etc. and shrink these Bibles down to a thinline like everyone else is doing. For “study”, we have online and software resources now that make it easy to follow cross-references without flipping through pages in a physical Bible. A physical Bible is for the joy of reading God’s word and should just be in a “reader” format.

    I’ve had this Bible in my possession for about a week now and been keeping it in the box. Every once and a while I will take it out to hold, smell and read a little bit. I love the quality of this Bible and plan on getting another one in NASB, but there is one thing that Schuyler may have overlooked, the art-gilting. Now, I’m not saying that the art-gilting is not consistent or as advertised, but I don’t think it’s water resistant. I naturally have clammy hands and I realized that after flipping through a few pages of my schuyler that it started whipping off on my fingertips. I am now concerned in the long-run how much will be wiped off and how much will remain. This is one genuine critique that can easily be fixed and I hope they do fix it. I have watched a couple videos on Youtube of people art-gilting their Bible’s and they use: Archival Ink, which is acid-free, permanent, and waterproof. Maybe Schuyler can follow suit to make their Bible’s the best they can be.

    I purchased the plum/purple ESV Quentel from a private seller. In short, this is the best all around bible I have ever seen. It is well constructed. The leather is gorgeous. The 36 GSM paper, beautiful print, and line matching facilitate a rare ease of reading. There is nothing about this bible relative to what it was designed for about which to complain. It is jaw dropping.

    I used to have a 1st generation Quentel and this one is better. The first was very good but a little stiff and unwieldy. This one is still built to last but easy enough to handle that it can be easily handled, brought to church, and used for a variety of purposes. If you are on the fence about the Schuyler Quentel, get off and place your order.

    The softness and blue shade of the goatskin cover on this Bible are amazing. The font and crisp printing make reading it a joy. It has a black letter text (my preference), quality long ribbons (3) and beautiful maps. Finally, the sale price makes this ESV a great buy. If you want a premium ESV get one of these while you can.

    My first Schuyler Bible, and what a Bible it is. I had a Crossway Classic Reference Edition in Black Calfskin previously and it was just ok – didn’t lie flat and font was tiny. I knew that I would need to branch out from Crossway to find what I was after. I looked into it and soon came across Schuyler. I have been reading the ESV for several years now so was set on it. I emailed Evangelical Bible about the dimensions of the Quentel vs Personal Size and, after their super quick reply from the lovely Beth, I decided on the Quentel as it’s a similar size to my Crossway Bible. I ordered it on Saturday and had it by the following Friday. What great service! It was shipped on Tuesday and I was able to track it all the way to my home in the UK via Fedex. I opened it up and was very pleased by how well packaged it was. The box is simple yet beautiful, and the Bible is something else! Absolutely first class! The smell of the luxurious Goatskin Leather when you open the box is incredible. I got the Imperial Blue Goatskin Leather Quentel ESV. The cover is supple and lovely – glad I branched out from my usual black Bible. The gold edge lining is lovely and the blue art gilt is really super looking! The font is so readable and the red chapter numbers, page numbers, verses in cross references really add to it. I can easily read this Bible without my glasses due to the 11 point Milo font that is bold. The concordance is great, despite the smaller font, as are the maps. The typesetting is a Schuyler design with 2K Denmark, not a Crossway one like Allan Bibles – much much better. This is the best ESV on the market. I can easily take it to Church without any hassle, although may get a Personal Size in due course as it a little smaller and more portable. Highly recommended. It will be my Bible for life!

    I have had a imperial blue Quentel from a few years ago and wanted to get another one. Wow this is almost not even the same bible. Huge improvements! Finally the corner work was impeccable! Love this bible and love that it still has the 36gsm paper. The only thing that could make this better is an imperial blue silverline. Hint hint. Very happy. You’ll be even more impressed with the costumer service!

  9. pastorovj (verified owner)

    Wonderful Bible! I love how each book, chapter and refernces are in red ink. I just wish that the verse numbers were in red also. I would pay extra for that. The pages are so smooth and the text is great. I highly recommend this Bible.

  10. Venancio R Delgado (verified owner)

    Quality bible that will pretty much last for generations! I was impressed with the yap. It was more pronounced than I expected. Allan is known for their pronounced yaps, although not as pronounced I was extremely pleased when I opened the box. The font is big and bold. A pleasant change from the QSP that I have and need my reading glasses to read. Blue over gold gilt is absolutely beautiful! Nice goatskin cover will break in nicely with use! Overall fantastic bible! Can’t wait to get my antique brown NLT!

  11. Stephen (verified owner)

    I ordered this Bible for my wife and it is gorgeous. The leather is incredibly soft, the blue color is rich, and the text block is fantastic to read from. This is our first Schuyler and I’m pleased to say that they absolutely live up to the name.

    This was my first time buying through evangelical bible and it was a pleasure.
    I am in Australia, I placed my order a week ago and I received it today. Very impressive!!!

    The Schuyler Quentel ESV, Imperial Blue Goatskin Bible is hands down an awesome Bible! Amazing craftsmanship. It truly is a work of art and a pleasure to read. My only regret is that I didn’t ordered an Quentel in the calfskin too!
    I Highly recommend this bible and buying through !
    Thank you EB, from the land down under.

    This is the first of three (3) Schuyler Quentel Bibles that I’ve purchased over the past four months and I absolutely love it. I’ve spent many hours researching the website; have read all of the reviews (and continue to); and looked at all of the photographs many times over. Blue is my favorite color, so I knew my first Bible would be a blue one, and I soon settled on Schuyler as the type of Bible I wanted to purchase. Having recently purchased an ESV Study Bible, I was looking to first get a regular-sized NASB, but they were out of stock, so I opted to go for more of a “reader” ESV, and chose the Quentel. Since the Bible’s specifications are published and have been covered in many of the reviews, I won’t re-hash those, but will instead focus on more of the subjective aspects that I’ve discovered.
    Overall, if the rating scale were a 1-10, I would give this Bible a 9. It has much to commend it in just its basic features: crisp, clear print that – coupled with a generous font size – makes for easy reading; quality construction and binding that should easily last a lifetime; and references along the bottom of the page (vs. a middle column or along the margins) that both “frees up” space for more text and thus makes its 2-column layout a pleasure to read while also allowing for a generous font-size along the bottom for the references so even my aging eyes don’t have to squint to read them. I also love the red highlights on chapter numbers, book title/chapter headers along the top; and in the references along the bottom. Not only does that provide a fresh contrast to the black text, but looks especially great against the blue under the gold gilting that appears when the Bible is opened as well as against the Imperial Blue of the cover. The paper’s great; the ribbons are of excellent quality (and beautiful against the gold of the gilting and the black/white/red of the page; and the pliability of the cover is excellent. So are there any things I don’t like, or that I believe could be made better? Well, as the “9-out-of-10” rating would suggest, yes there are two (2) things – both relatively minor – that I believe could be better executed in future editions and which would quickly boost my rating to a full “10”. The first is the concordance. The plus is that there is one (note that the Personal-sized Quentels and the recently released Thinline Quentel) DON’T have a concordance (a mistake in my opinion). The negative is the font size; it’s minuscule. Seriously, I don’t believe it would be an exaggeration to say that it’s probably less than a 6-point font. Why?!? Yes, it might add a few more pages, but not enough to be consequential to the overall size (and certainly not enough to bolster the size of this ESV Quentel back up to that of the first edition NASB Quentel, more affectionately known as “the brick”). I’m not saying the concordance entries need to be 11-point Milo font, but I don’t think it would be too much to ask for 8 or 8.5 point font. Schuyler has done an excellent job of including the dark red highlights in the concordance section, and they’re helpful, but even they can’t overcome the minute overall size of the font. I seriously hope this is something that’s addressed and corrected with the next printing of the regular-sized Quentels – on ALL versions. The second issue is a more minor one, and one that should be easily fixable, and it has to do with the maps. To be sure, the Schuyler maps now being used on all Quentels are really quite good in color and the amount of detail they provide. The issue resides with two (2) of the maps – both of which span both pages when the Bible is open (vs. being independent maps, each of which is on a separate page). The problem is that by using both pages to present the map, a not insignificant portion winds up getting almost swallowed up in the “gutter” (i.e., in the fold of the Bible), and you really have to force the pages down in these two maps if the location you’re searching for happens to lie in the middle part of the overall map. This could easily be remedied by slightly reducing the size of the map and providing a “break” between the portions covered on each page such that a margin is left in the gutter area. Fortunately, this issue is minor because most of the maps/charts each reside independently on a single page, but again, as with the concordance issue, this is something I would like to see Schuyler remedy on future reprints/new editions of their Quentels. The last thing (and it doesn’t weigh into my rating) is just a personal preference: I would like to see Schuyler offer red-letter editions in each translation. Currently, they’re only available in the recently released NIV, certain colors of the NKJV, and will be included in the upcoming Personal Sized Canterbury. Red-letter editions have been quite rare in the ESV world, and somewhat in the NASB arena, but I would like for them to be offered across the Schuyler line – even if in a smaller number of cover color options. But again, this is just personal preference.
    All in all, this is an outstanding Bible, and if you are wanting to buy a blue Bible, you won’t go wrong with this one; it’s absolutely awesome!

    This Bible was everything I hoped it would be. I’m very pleased with the soft, buttery feel of the goatskin. It smells amazing too. You CAN NOT go wrong with this Bible.

    The Imperial Blue Schuyler Quentel Holy Bible is absolutely beautiful craftsmanship. The goatskin leather cover is much softer and even more comfortable in the hands than anticipated. Reading this bible on the porch in the morning light the goatskin is a deep dark blue, depending on angle could almost be black. Reading this Milo font in low light at evening is a pleasure. You don’t have to be 56 years old as I am to appreciate this extremely legible text. I was not sure if the imperial blue would appear or feel gaudy and pompous in my hands since black leather has always been my choice before. I would carry this bible anywhere unashamed. It is definitely strong enough to handle anything thrown at it, including a backpacking trip into the wilderness or bringing with while working under the hood of your car. Everything from the durability, leather, stitching, paper, typesetting, design and artistic expression is basically perfect . Blue under gold art-gilt is amazingly simply gorgeous. Money cannot buy the desire to read the Holy Scriptures, but a masterful print such as this calls you to open the pages and dive inside.

    Received the ESV Quentel and it is amazing. The blue is stunningly beautiful. The quality is superb. I have been pastoring for 30 years and have to say this is the best bible I have had in my hands. I will be ordering the NASB and the Caxton NLT.

  18. Joanne (verified owner)

    I received my Bible yesterday. It’s the first Bible of this quality I’ve ever seen and it is absolutely beautiful. With my aging eyes (early 60s) I’ve probably tried every larger print ESV out there, and have not found any that really work well for me-until now. The combination of print and paper and the blue under gold art-gilt make for a very enjoyable reading experience. And I can’t say enough about how beautiful the binding looks and feels. I’ve never paid this much for a Bible before, but I’m so glad I finally decided to purchase it.

  19. Michael (verified owner)

    Translation aside, this is an absolutely a fantastic bible that s second to none. Schuyler has perfected this version to near perfect in my opinion. The goatskin cover is soft and flexible, the hinge is much improved and the Bible lays flat at Genesis. Although I did Nike the feel of the 38gsm paper of the 1st gen ESV, the 36 gsm is still very nice…do not go any lower in gsm. The feel of the paper is just as important as the opacity of the paper. The print is superb with the font style, size and line matching.

    Well done Schuyler…keep up the awesome work.

    I just received the newest August, 2017 edition of this Bible–the one most identifiable by a beautiful raised spine! I have to say, that this Schuyler ESV Bible is absolutely perfect, and is, from my perspective, the finest edition of the Schuyler ESV line released to date. I appreciate the perfectly flat text block because on a previous version some of first the signatures stuck out in a rather pronounced way. That is not the case with this Bible due to a modification that was made: the text block and each individual signature is made to line up flat and flush on the Bible. While that automatically makes the spine a bit ‘flatter’ than the previous edition, I consider this the perfect fix for the previous curved and somewhat irregular block. Everything about this Bible is perfect to me: from the leather inside and out, to the alignment of signatures, paper thickness, and crystal clear font! This Bible is stunning to me in every way that is important. This will now become my go-to Bible for pulpit use! Well done, Schuyler, in my opinion, you have created the best ESV Bible on the planet!

    We purchased this Bible as a gift for our son who was baptized on confession of faith in April. Our requirement was he had to have finished reading through his own Bible cover to cover previous to this step. We were thrilled with giving this gift which we hope will be so well used and read that we need to replace it! It is beautiful and has his name. He has already used the story of this gift to compel younger boys to read the Word with enthusiasm. He emphasized its cost and how the MOST important life giving book in the world is worth it!

    Wow! I’ve had mine for a month and it has become like butter in my hand. Great bible!!!!!

    I quite excited to receive this Bible and unfortunately I was disappointed. My disappointment had more to do with expectations and layout than quality of the Bible.

    – Well constructed.
    – Beautiful printing with red accents on chapter headings.
    – Font is easy to read.
    – People at have been very helpful.

    – The goatskin leather is harder than I expected (again this is false expectation), but the only premium Bible I have is calfskin (ESV Classic Reference) which is super soft and I expected something more like that. The goatskin is like a nicer version of the harder leather on Crossway Bibles you’ll find in any store.
    – There is no margin at all, I looked at photos and just didn’t realize how zero margin there is until it was in my hands. I don’t write much in the margins, but I do write some and there isn’t room to write anything at all.
    – Cost of learning this. Since the only way to see one of these Bibles is to order it, it’s a shame that a Bible I held in my hand for 30 minutes to look at will cost me close to $50 in shipping and restocking fee. I’d likely try other Bibles from if not for the $50 “check out this Bible” fee.

    Summary: This is personal opinion, but my dream Bible wouldn’t be far off from this one. Soft Calfskin cover, Same print red accents as this one, blue under silver art-gilt, but with 9 or 10 point font instead of 11 so that there was some margin, some way to live in this Bible and not just read it.

    I bought this bible as a gift for my daughter and her husband on their first (paper) anniversary! It was beautiful, well made, and they really loved it! Every family needs a Bible that will last for years and this one will!

  25. Alice (verified owner)

    I had been looking at this bible for months. I hesitated to buy it because it is a lot more money than I would usually spend for a bible. I received it for a gift recently and I coul not be happier with it! It’s outstanding in every way and I highly recommend getting one if it’s possible! The best gift I’ve ever been given!

  26. Ray Cabrera (verified owner)

    Probably the best overall bible I have ever held. I love the blue goatskin leather, it is thick but very supple. The goldstamp on the spine looks much better then the silver on the spine. I also like the blue under silver art guild, for some reason the blue is easier on my eyes when reading. The paper and font is second to none., this bible is a pure pleasure to read. The size alterations also make this a more portable bible. I love this bible and would recommend to anyone to buy.

  27. Ron Larson (verified owner)

    This is an astounding Bible! Beautiful blue leather, ribbons, and edges…simply wonderful. Most importantly, the text is bold, clear, and easy to read. The size of the thing (though somewhat large) is quite livable and fits nicely in my hand. It is definitely not designed for travel–it’s a home reader, and beautiful pulpit Bible. The page thickness couldn’t be better and there is zip for ghosting on this Bible. Thanks so much for building this Bible–it is simply brilliant!

    Just got this Holy Bible today as a 10th Anniversary present from my awesome wife. This is definitely the nicest Bible I have ever seen. The text is clear and legible and the leather cover is neither too soft nor too stiff. The Imperial Blue is a nice dark color and the art gilt is amazingly done. This will be the Bible I hope to use for many years to come, Lord willing, and pass it on to future generations.

    Masterpiece! That’s the only word I could come up with to describe this Bible. I’ve owned several Allan and Cambridge Bibles over the years and this one plays second fiddle to none of them. The most remarkable aspect is the perfect combination of paper, typesetting and printing that make this an eminently readable Bible. The paper does not reflect any glare such as some Bible papers do. The red accents for chapter numbers, etc. are stunning. The goatskin cover feels almost as if it were padded – very luxurious and with beautiful grain. Also, I love maps and having so many maps in a Bible is a real plus. I was really torn between choosing the blue or the green cover but finally went with the blue because I love the blue under silver art gilt! If the green one had green under gold art gilt, that would have probably won me over!
