    This review is for the Schuyler Quentel NKJV in black calfskin leather. 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 $120 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.

    I love my calfskin NKJV Quentel. This will be my Bible until I die or until the Lord returns.

    I ended up selecting the black leather, black letter calfskin because the goatskin in black letter was out of print. I am blown away how amazing this Bible is. The leather is soft. For $80.00 less than the goatskin, you can’t go wrong.

    The only problem I have with this Bible is that it is so well made, so beautiful that I am afraid to really use it and take it places. It’s like a show car that sits in the garage and you don’t want anyone to even breath on it. It is fantastic! The only other premium Bible that I have is a Cambridge Wide Margin in Goatskin. And the Quentel in Calfskin blows it away as far as beauty, paper, and print. The only sacrifice is the Wide margins. If I could sum up my first impressions I would say the Quentel in Black Calfskin is elagent, well made and designed to be read with amazing print and it’s only $105.00 Schuyler has done it right!!!

    My review of this bible is that I feel the calfskin addition is really nice but I feel for $120 Schuyler could have made this with a little better calfskin, it could have been edge lined, and it could also have had at least a pig skin leather or a synthetic lining without the stiff paper card. The leather cover should be rollable for $120 like the In Touch Ministries NASB Bible. You cannot buy that bible new anymore as it’s out of print but what you got with the In Touch Bible for $100.00 was a super high quality calfskin cover with leather lining, and it was made with an edge line and not a paste off and no paper card under the cover.
    Now don’t get me wrong this Calfskin Quentel bible is 3x better than any common R.L. Allan China goat skin rebound, trust me. The Quentel’s book block is worth more than $120 in my opinion as after reading from this bible for a few months now no other text type is even able to compare. I think the calfskin leather is ok it’s just that it’s not the leather you’d think to see on a premium Bible to which this is. But again it’s not bad just not as good as other calfskin bible covers I’ve seen or own. This is the only reason why I’d give this Bible a 4 star rating to which I gave it a 5 star.
    Despite the cover I don’t think it should be sold for less either because the book block / text print/ type setting is so good. $120 is a super fair price for the actually Bible here, especially for the experience of reading from a perfect type setting. Just amazing for real. It’s like you start reading and you never want to stop as the text is so clear and readable and just awesome. This text block would be God’s Bible had he came back down to dwell on the earth again in the flesh. Of course He will return in the flesh again but I don’t think it will be to receive a Quentel. Lol

    “Have you not read?”

    Remember guys, despite what you might have heard, Jesus told his listeners that they could read the Bible and understand it as he lead with those words on many occasions: “Have you not read” so remember that as you read it that you can understand it and that it has all been written to reveal God to us His people and that we might understand the gospel and what God has freely given us through His Son Jesus Christ.

    I have 5 NKJV Quentels and 2 NASB Quentels… Trust me when I say this Quentel is truly a great bible. 5 stars for sure.

    This is the first high-end Bible I’ve purchased, and I couldn’t be any happier. The paper, font size, and printing are top notch. The calfskin leather is beautiful, soft, and I love the smell of it. I have not handled a Schuyler goat skin Bible, so I can’t say how this compares, but so far I’m in love with this Bible. It has the paper card under leather in the cover, so I am not going to try to roll and flex it, but that’s not something I would do while reading anyway so it’s not a big deal. This is my first Schuyler, but it won’t be last.
