    Just received mine on Saturday and preached from it today. Absolutely beautiful. Cover is a beautiful blue and unbelievably soft. The gilding dances from blue to gold from different angles. Paper is perfect. Not so thin that you are afraid to tear a page by turning too fast, but not so thick as to be cumbersome. It feels perfect in the fingers while moving from passage to passage. The font is perfect as well. Easy on the eyes and extremely legible font. The line matching is spot on. No greyish area where the text is. Clear lines for every passage. The maps are astounding, especially the one that gives where Paul wrote each letter from. This is a pastor’s bible. Perfect for preaching. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a lifetime bible.

    Received this lovely and dynamic setting of the NKJV. The imperial Blue with blue under gold is a work of art. The color is easy on the eyes. The red letter is superb- not too dark or too light and makes it easier for me to find the words of Christ when I need to v.s. a black letter edition. Soft and supple cover as well which is nicely stitched on the periphery. The new maps are especially helpful for Bible study. I recommend the Quentel for any fan of the NKJV.

    This bible is absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing.
    I tend to get over excited about new maps in bibles. These were definitely worth the hype. I am so glad Schuyler put the ministries of Jesus in this bible. The map of Jerusalem is well done and in good form. These maps seem to fit perfectly with the Schuyler design.
    The red letter is a perfect shade of red leaning to the darker side. (Dark red clay) The verse numbers are bold enough to find easily in the paragraph format. The font is easy on the eyes which makes reading a joy and not a chore. Somehow this paper is thinner than the 1st printing nasb quentel but has nearly identical opasity. The paper is a soft smooth creamy milky matte white. The raised hubs sets the look of the bible I.e it looks like a bible and not a journal.
    The blue is a nice shade and the new calfskin liners make the book more flexible. It still retains enough regitity to stay firm in your hands but lays completely flat on a table. (Very hard to pull off but they managed it). The art gilding is a nice shade of blue and the gold gives it a hint of aqua marine like on old babtismry in a methodist church. Gilt line was perfect. One think most folks don’t think of the headbands. I’m so glad there are only three book mark ribbons and their spaced out evenly. The headbands were very secured in place. The spine reinforcement was another detail I liked; don’t have to worry about the spine falling apart later on ( Lord willing I make it to then).
    The Jerusalem cross on the front is a bit standie outie but its blind stamped witch sets a perfect tone between just enough without being too much.
    The weight isn’t bad considering its size; it feels very solid in the hands.
    Words can’t really convey how great a tool this bible is. Its like Schuyler somehow knew everything I was looking for and put it in one bible for me. It feels more custom than just a custom bible.
    If your looking for a NKJV that will look nice and last you a lifetime then get this one definitely.
    I hope I hit every area that anybody would want to know about.

    Received My Schuyler Quentel Imperial Blue NKJV (Red Ltr) edition today. Beautiful Bible. I love the soft but thick goatskin cover. The thickness is cut down a little from the 1st edition which I like very much. The print and blocking is so well done. Print is crisp!! The margins are great because being a large print a lot of times it winds up in the gutter of the Bible and you have a hard time reading it. Not on this one!! There’s only one reason I give it a 4 star instead of a 5. Because of the weight and thickness. They’ve made it a little thinner then the 1st edition, but still heavy and thick. Love it though!! If you could find a way to make it about a 1/4 thinner and 3/4 to a pound lighter you’d have a 6 star review.

    Ordered and received my Blue Schuyler Quentel Red Letter edition. Absolutely beautiful goatskin leather cover, luxurious and supple. Spine strong and sturdy. Beautiful ribbons in a perfect navy blue color. The text is very readable and I find it extremely pleasant to the eyes with the lovely edging blue color under the gold that is so appealing. Textblock is awesome and references nicely laid out together at the bottom of the page. The maps are beautifully laid out and there’s some really interesting details in the textblock of the Assyria and Babylonian Empires map. The Ministry of Jesus is also very informational as well as on all the other beautiful maps. I only give it 3 stars for 2 reasons:- Firstly, the bottom right corner came with very slight damage to the pages but it is not largely noticeable but very slight which kind of disappointed me a bit after such excitement in receiving it. Secondly the concordance is rather tiny print. There’s a lot of wasted space and if the print was made an 8pt at least (1 pt less than the bible text itself) then I would give it 5 stars but I find that I’m hardly using the concordance because it’s a strain on my eyes which is a pity. But altogether, I am still happy with my purchase and it’s still beautiful to use and read out of. It is fast becoming my favourite bible to use next to my KJV Westminster Reference Bible.

    The font size and style are absolutely the best I’ve ever seen in any bible. I cannot stop reading this Bible once I start. It seemed a little too big at first, but once I started reading it, I realized that it was well balanced in my hands, and easily forgot about the big size. I tend to like smaller bibles better for the portability, but I now carry this Bible as my main daily reader. The design of the text, the line matching, and the quality of the paper just make this Bible a real pleasure to read!!

    This Bible is awesome. Text does not run in gutter at all. Paragraph format, but easy to find verse number. Plenty of extra blank pages front and back. Binding solid, even before Genesis stay flat and open. Goatskin or calfskin to me is like comparing white grapes to red grapes. Maps are solid. However I disagree with possible Exodus route. I do think the concordance could be larger font. The set up of references and other possible readings for each verse make this Bible great. Clean reading Bible that in my opinion can’t be beat. Especially in workmanship and design. When you get this Bible, remember it is a custom built one.

    The first ‘heirloom’ bible I’ve ever purchased and well worthy of that distinction, and also the only bible I’ve had to remind myself to be careful to love God’s words contained in the bible more than the bible itself as the vehicle of God’s word.

    The blue Quentel is the most beautiful color available! Received mine today and it was simply perfect. Cover was super smooth and very soft. The text size is great for extended reading. The layout of the text and references is unique. The text size on the concordance is small – not a problem for me, but could be a challenge for some. This is the best deal ever on a superb full size Bible.

    Last year I saw a blog post about a company that was making amazing quality Bibles that would last a lifetime. I was so sick of having to find a new Bible every few years that I spent quite a while reading all the reviews, even though I believed there was no way I could actually afford one. I also love the NJKV and assumed it would not be one of the offered translations. Lo and behold, I found this particular Bible that was priced in range of being asked for as a joint Christmas present from my children. They gave it to me Christmas Eve and I was blown away. I think several of them wanted to keep it for themselves. I can’t go into all the helpful details that other reviewers have because I don’t know that much about handcrafted books. My previous idea of the differences between Bibles was “leather” and “fake leather”. The first thing I noticed was the lovely blue color. It took re-reading reviews for me to notice the color changing on the page edges. Beautiful. The three ribbons are wonderful for marking the locations for my yearly Bible reading plan (and one daughter REALLY liked that feature). The Bible is actually pretty small considering the wonderful size of the print and the thickness of the paper. The font is incredible and makes it so easy to read even though other Bibles I have owned have a larger font size. The color of the paper is lovely and so easy on the eyes and feels wonderful while turning pages. The arrangement of the pages surprised me as all I remember noticing was the two-column format, so I had not noticed that the text is divided into paragraphs rather than having each verse start at the beginning of the column. Once I realized how large and clear the verse numbers were within the paragraph I decided I actually loved this. The text seems to flow better and I can switch from straight reading to studying using the textual notes and cross-references at the bottom of the page easily. Because they are at the bottom of the page, the references don’t break up the reading if you don’t want to use them, but are easily accessible when desired. I love the maps and the map indexes also. The concordance is in much smaller print, which I appreciate as it cuts down the weight and thickness of the Bible. The font used still makes the references very readable, in my opinion. I also did not know that you could get a black-letter Bible and realize I actually prefer it to the red-letter versions. I can’t say enough good things about this Bible. Thank you for making something I know I will use and love for years.

    The Schuyler Quentel NKJV in Navy Blue Calfskin (Black Letter) : a dream to handle in your hands and a tempest of positive feelings to read, also because is made so well. Only comment for printer: make Concordance font bigger ! (it’s minuscule).

    This review is for the Schuyler Quentel NKJV in navy blue calfskin Bible (black letter). As a point of reference, I am reviewing this in comparison with the Schuyler Quentel NKJV in black leather-lined goatskin leather.

    Let me start by saying that the calfskin and the leather-lined goatskin Schuyler Quentel NKJV are identical in dimensions, format, content, and thickness of paper. The most obvious difference is that this Bible is bound in calfskin leather (paste down) while the other is leather-lined goatskin. However, there are significant differences between the two Bibles.

    First, the calfskin NKJV Quentel lays truly flat even at the table of contents whereas the leather-lined goatskin does not start laying truly flat until somewhere in Deuteronomy-Judges. The winner here is the calfskin NKJV Quentel.

    Second, the calfskin NKJV Quentel’s cover is stiffer than the leather-lined goatskin. However, when you hold the calfskin Bible in your hand, the pages droop similarly as the leather lined goatskin. Neither has an advantage over the other. I do want to point out that the calfskin hinges more beautifully than the leather-lined goatskin.

    Third, while the yap of both the calfskin and leather-lined goatskin is the same, the absence of the gold gilt around the yap on the calfskin makes the yap on the calfskin appear wider. I cannot say whether the absence of the gold guilt is a plus or a minus (I prefer it without having a gold gilt around the yap). What I can say based on my observation is that the absence of the gold gilt around the yap gives the yap on the calfskin a wider look.

    Lastly, the calfskin costs $105 while the leather-lined goatskin costs $220. The clear winner here is the calfskin edition, especially since the benefits of the calfskin as described above far outweighed the leather-lined goatskin. In other words, you are getting a better Bible with the calfskin edition for a much lesser price.

    This navy blue NKJV Quentel is a dream come true for me. There are not a lot of navy blue Bibles out there, but I am glad Schuyler has one in NKJV and in black letter text too. This Bible is very handsome, and it is suitable for reading. The blue art edging is very cool on the eyes.

    This is a beautiful Bible at a very reasonable price. I don’t know what goatskin feels like, but this calfskin feels wonderful.

    The font size is easy on the eyes. But there is some ghosting in the text. I was hoping to make this to become my new preaching Bible, but I really need larger margins for notes.

    This is a five-star Bible compared to just about anything you can buy in a Christian bookstore. But if I’m comparing it to other top-of-the-line Bibles, it merits four stars. I currently preach from an In Touch NASB Wide-Margin Calfskin Bible. I have not yet seen a Bible that beats it, but I’m looking!

    This is my 3rd Schuyler Bible – the first was imperial blue goatskin thinkline NASB (LOVE It!) soooo soft! cover is ‘thicker’ and ‘squishy’. I thought I’d save money (about $95 when I bought) buying a pretty navy calfskin insteads of the purple goatskin I wanted. When I took this one out I was thinking ‘3 rating’ and ‘yuck’ because the cover didn’t feel squishy soft like the other. I don’t mean rubbing my hand across it but feeling the thickness of the cover and the inside. I knew it wasn’t leather inside but I didnt’ expect it to feel like posterboard 🙁 however my opinion changed the more I handled it (just this afternoon so not days and days) but I already love it for staying open!! It stays open even in the pages before Genesis which is AWESOME for studying and holding on my lap in church! it’s also not as thick as I was afraid it would be (the thinline was a nice thickness for me) this one is thick but not unmanageable. the inside is without a complaint- it feels nice and is a JOY to read with the font.
    so for the visual appeal, readability , staying open (It does drape nicely when I hold it by the spine – if that matters to anyone!) and price it’s a good value. I have a NIV calfskin already ordered but that was before I got this one. I’m not sure I’d order another calfskin since I LOVE Schuyler’s goatskin so much but the more I use this one maybe I”ll change my mind if it continues to stay open better than some of my other Bibles.

    I just received this bible in the mail yesterday. I love it! So when I first opened it the first you see is the cover, which is very nice. Its Calfskin and it seems to be very good quality. I also love the font and the paper of the bible. The pages don’t bleed through when I highlight scriptures which is good. I have never heard of this publisher before, but I am glad I found them. It is a pretty good size bible, I will say its not a bible that I think you’d want to carry around everywhere, for one I wouldn’t want to ruin it, but on top of that its a pretty big bible. I am really love the font and paper, that’s the biggest thing that stands out to me, because the cover is nice, but honestly If the paper and font was not nice who cares about the cover? lol, its the material inside that transforms! I would say get one if you are looking for a nice bible that you can have for a long time, I look forward to marking this baby up, and just enjoying my time w/ the Lord while reading His Word. I just want to say the customer service was awesome and helpful and very friendly. You guys rock!

    I recieved my beautiful Schuyler Quentel Bible yesterday….I am still just speechless. This is the most beautiful Bible I have ever purchased. The quality and workman ship compares to none. This is truly a work of art. The font size is perfect for those of us getting older…the concordance font could be a little bigger . The leather is so soft and feels amazing as you are holding it. I could go on for days and still not be able to describe how wonderful this Bible is…I am so happy I treated myself to will last a lifetime. You can tell only the best top quality materials were used..absolutely superb !!! It arrived 2 days earlier than expected I was so excited !!! My Bible was packaged so carefully to make sure it arrived safely..and a nice handwritten not was enclosed thanking me for my purchase…what a nice touch. This is truly the place to purchase a top quality Bible that will truly last you a lifetime. Thank you Evangelical Bibles for such a wonderful Bible…
