    I have the dark purple it is exquisite now I am hoping for the dark blue (navy) to come out in 2024

    This Bible is awesome!! The only thing I’m disappointed about is the picture shows a full yapp purple Bible and this yapp isn’t a full yapp at all. I’m disappointed in that. Everything else, the goatskin leather, the pages, the ribbons, and the art gilding are super awesome. The picture is very misleading though and that is why I’m so disappointed.

    Oh wow the goatskin is sooooo soft and feels absolutely amazing to hold. It is super soft but at the same time feels like it can take a lot of us (and it will!). Love the colour and this is the first time I have had blue gilt, really nice! Top Marks.

    Schuyler did a wonderful job with this Bible, frankly, much better than I had expected. I am a great fan of R. L. Allan Bibles and I have quite a few in my collection. I was concerned that Schuyler would not be on par with the Allan offering. Fear not, if you love Allan you are going to love Schuyler too. The edge-lining is perfectly executed and the Bible does not have a lot of stiffness in the hinge right out of the box. The text block was well centered. The 28 gsm paper was not as thin as I had originally though that it would be and it feels as good as the Allan 36 gsm offering. There is only minimal ghosting and the text is very clear. This is the Bible text for aging eyes. In direct sunlight the purple goatskin cover is a nice eggplant color and is suitable for male or female use. As an ordained pastor and chaplain, I would feel comfortable using this color in any setting. The grain on the goatskin cover is fairly similar to what you will find on the Cambridge offering. While nice, it is not as pronounced in texture as Allan Highland Goatskin. It is more comparable to the natural goatskin that Allan uses with the Bibles produced in the Netherlands. Given the recent price increases in Allan and Cambridge Bibles, this Schuyler Bible is a fantastic offering at a fair price. With proper care, this Bible should last a lifetime and beyond. You will not be disappointed, I guarantee.

    This my first, but definitely not my last Schuyler. Beautiful color and feel. Easy to read. Really digging the blue under silver. Thank you!

    This is a very beautiful Bible and came sooner than expected. It came with scratches on the spine, but that just gave it some character. I also prefer the thicker paper that is in my older Canterbury, but that is just a personal preference. My main disappointment is with the red letter. It is a nice dark red on some pages, and on others it is pale and difficult to read. Overall, this is a beautiful Bible. I just wish the red letter was legible throughout.

    I ordered this Bible on Sunday, it shipped on Monday, and I received it around Noon on Wednesday. You can’t ask for faster service! The Bible itself is beautiful. The purple is REALLY dark, more like plum or eggplant—it looks brown in some cases depending on the light. I would prefer the art gilt not be quite as deep a red but I can’t complain. I wanted to get this in the ESV but waited too long so I’m glad I was able to get this one. Curious thing about this Schuyler and my ESV PSQ: neither of them have the leather smell I was expexting. Anyway, this is a beautiful edition of the NKJV and I hjghly recommend it.

    It’s not as bright purple as the pictures make it look. It is more of a plum color. This is good in my opinion and what I had hoped for. I wanted a red letter Bible and was bored with black. These Quentels are very nicely done. Worth every dime.

  9. John G. Powell

    A superb Bible, beautifully built to last for ages. I love the format, which makes this Bible so easy to read and hard to put down! Schuyler continues to produce the best Bibles! Congratulations Schuyler !

    I’m a bit disappointed in my NKJV in purple. It’s the color I am not happy with. It’s so dark that I would not call it purple but dark eggplant, it almost looks blackish. The online photo makes it appear lighter. Had I seen it in person I would not have bought it. I was hoping the “purple” would actually look a truer purple, it does not. Interior of the Bible is nice.

    Being a red letter KJV admirer I could not find the ideal Bible to suit my taste, but I did find this particular book attractive enough to purchase. The two things I would have prefered would have been yellow under gold gilting, single column, and of course the KJV. I am looking forward with great anticipation to its delivery.

    Never have I seen such a beautiful bible, opening the box was an awesome experience, I felt like I was a kid on Christmas morning. The purple goatskin is very dark and kingly, IMO it fits perfect with the NKJV in redletter. Schuyler hit it of the park on this one. The print is on a whole different level than any text I’ve seen, it makes me want to read yet doing so is a challenge cause I sit and caress the poor thing to death. if you want to see just how beautiful this purple is swing on by my channel on YouTube at Airik1111 Schuyler NKJV in Purple Goatskin, I have many bible reviews but this one is special. Please check it out and then come back here and buy that thing

    Classic Dark Purple even for a man. It’s almost to dark, worth every penny. It’s a Schuyler… What more do I need to say… Top of the line.
