    I totally agree with Nicholas Pfister’s thorough review. As a Christian for 52 years and in full time Christian ministry with my husband, I can honestly say that the Bible is my life – my home. Starting with the KJV (where most of my memorization has taken place), to the NASB, NKJV, ESV, CSB, I have loved every one. I’m crazy about premium Bibles and have MANY, but when my red NLT Quentel came today I just fell in love. It’s such a beautiful red and extremely buttery. Honestly, I can’t see in any way how it could be improved. The layout and print are perfect. I love the silver/blue gilt. It’s so so beautiful/stunning, actually and is worth every cent. I can hardly put it down.
    Thank you EVANGELICAL BIBLE.com!!!

    I’m not using hyperbole when I say this is probably the nicest Bible I’ve ever owned. Multiple Allans and Cambridges, the perhaps underappreciated ESV Heirloom Legacy, and many more are all beautiful in their own right, but this red crimson NLT is something different.

    The color is perfect; brighter than the firebrick red without being cherry-like or tacky. The navy accents are tasteful and add to the richness and uniqueness of this beautiful Bible. The leather – oh, the leather! – never again will I view calfskin as second rate in comparison to goatskin. Leather just doesn’t get more beautiful or supple than this. Any softer and I’d have to refrigerate it next to that stick of butter I microwaved for too long…no joke. As an aside, I’m a full yapp guy, but I’ve realized lately that I prefer FY on smaller Bibles, like the Clarion, and a semi-yapp on anything midsize or larger. Now to the interior…the paper is just as wonderful as all the other Schuyler Bibles, but the layout is far better, in mine humble opinion, than the other Quentels, because footnotes and cross references are still there but inconspicuously at the bottom, and without the cluttering up of the verses with distracting letters and numbers. There are also some splendid details like drop caps and minimalist designs surrounding chapter numbers that add just enough extra style to be better than the rest without straining or overdoing it.

    A note on the translation: As a young, professing believer, I would only read “serious” Bible translations (started with KJV, went to NKJV, then ESV, then 95 NASB; which I still use as does my church). If I’m reading it’s going to be the Puritans, and only the most unabridged copy I could find. If I could locate one with Jonathan Edwards’ sweat stains, that would be preferred. I even inwardly smirked at my wife this past year as she began to read the NLT, and shared with me how some other serious types actually had some nice things to say about the translation. Oh, how deceptively proud we can be!

    Anyhow, we purchased an NLT for our family devotions to make it easier for all to understand. Then, mister smarty pants, yours truly, began to read it devotionally in the morning. And after reading the first five chapters of Romans to my wife for an impromptu joint devotional time this past Monday, I knew that I wanted the NLT to be my “daily driver.”

    I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the NLT for everyone as their primary Bible. I have read enough in 17+ years to know what the Bible says in multiple different versions. If something catches my attention, I know to dig deeper, consult other translations, commentaries, concordances, my elders and friends, etc. But in my search for my daily devotional Bible, I came to the realization that I have heard directly and indirectly spoken many times: The best Bible translation is the one you’ll read. I like having my 95 NASB for church so that I can follow along with the reading and preaching, but day in and day out this beautiful Schuyler NLT is what I’ll be using.

    I have discovered that my views on translations aren’t much different from my views on study Bibles. I don’t care much for study Bibles because they’re too cumbersome to carry, but they don’t have enough information in them to be useful long-term. We sometimes agonize over translations, and while I don’t think it’s an unimportant consideration (it’s God’s Word, after all!), I think we can stress out a wee bit less after we realize that no translation is going to satisfy us in every aspect, and that for those of us with phones in our pockets and/or computers in our homes, we have myriads of resources at our fingertips when it comes time to drill down and better understand a verse, a sentence, a word.

    With all of that said, if you’re thinking about it, I say buy it and you won’t have any regrets!

    ***UPDATE***

    After airing out a few days, the beautiful smell of leather has come out, and all of the chemical smell has completely gone away!

    As all Schuyler, this Bible is absolutely beautiful!
    The only “issue” with this one, and I’ve never had it before, is the smell. Normally, it’s exciting to open the box and smell the leather overwhelm you. But this one has a strong chemical like smell to it. Hoping that as it airs out, that will go away. But regardless, it’s staying with me and I love it!
