    I received my Treveris Goatskin in slate today… Wow. This is the perfect size Bible for sure. It is a reader, so the single column is definitely ideal for that. I have the slate goatskin in the Canterbury WM and the Canterbury PS and for some reason this slate goatskin feels better in my hand than the other slate goatskins I have.

    I am eager to see how I adjust to using a single column Bible… I have never used one before. First impression of the Treveris… Schuyler and Evangelicalbible.com hit it out of the park!

    The Treveris is the most unique and majestic bible I have ever seen. Reading this bible is pure bliss. A bible of bibles.

    I have looked forward to receiving this Bible since it was announced. Without a doubt, Schuyler has planned, designed, and executed the Treveris magnificently. Even though I am not a frequent user or reader of the KJV, this design draws one into the text as a reader and yet allows the use of standard textual markers. This is one superb Bible and you should absolutely buy it.

    Why four stars? I wish I could do 4.5 stars. It’s the box. With the Treveris, Schuyler has gone to a one-piece, thin design of one side folding over the other like is used in some “non-premium” Bibles. Will it protect from dust while on the shelf?Absolutely. Will it hold up to constant open and closing over time? I doubt it. In my view, the quality of the box should speak to the quality of the contents. I wish the box for the Treveris were the standard two-piece design as other Schuylers.

    If this box is used for other translations in the Treveris design would I still buy the Bible? Without a doubt. The Treveris is a superb high quality Bible with magnificent design features that Schuyler is known for, and I prefer a single column, too. The box design and quality, however, needs to be reconsidered for future versions…please.

    Folks this is the most amazing Bible I’ve ever seen. I don’t normally leave reviews unless something is extra ordinary and this Bible is for sure. The slate is amazing and actually sometimes looks brown, black, and grey depending on the light. The size is absolutely perfect in my opinion and it’s font is incredibly easy to read. I had originally ordered the Canterbury but it was considerably larger and heavier than I expected. This company was kind enough to allow me to exchange it for free and I now have everything I wanted in my first premium Bible! Thank you evangelical! I LOVE this Bible.

    Quality of materials and craftsmanship are impeccable. The leather is amazing, very soft and a nice grain. The slate grey is an interesting colour that sometimes looks almost brown (not necessarily a bad thing). The contrast of the red liner is wonderful and pleasant to the eye. the silver under red guiding is done nicely.

    Readability is great! The opacity of the paper is very good and font style and size are easy on the eyes. The layout is one of the best yet for paragraph format. I do like that the poetry is justified making it a joy to read. However, I do not like that the books Job and Isaiah as well as a few others have mostly been justified as well, but it is still very readable so not that concerning. I am not a fan of red letter and I do find the pages that are mostly red letter are not that readable.

    Overall this is one beautiful bible that will definitely be one of my main readers. Stunning!

    I am very pleased with this beautiful Bible. I already noticed that I read more with this single column format. The only thing I don’t quite like is the quality of the box, I think it wears out very quickly and that’s a pity for such a beautiful Bible.

    This is my first Schuyler Bible and it is gorgeous! I wasn’t sure what the slate goatskin would be like, but the colour with the red ribbons, burgundy lining and art gilt is stunning.

    I thought the Bible would be big and chunky, but it is the perfect size for a reading Bible.

    Mine came with some faint red staining at the bottom of a few pages, but I contacted evangelicalbible and Karen was extremely helpful and gave me the option of receiving a replacement or a discount.

    Not only am I overjoyed about my Bible, I am also thankful for the wonderful customer service.

    First, ordered and shipped on same day! I love that. Now, to the bible I received yesterday.

    This is a beautiful piece of artwork. I looks so good I really had to make myself open it to read it. I am so glad I did.

    This bible is a goldilocks bible. The size is not to small like a personal sized bible, nor is it a brick. The font is not to small nor is it to big. I liked the 11 point font but find the 10 point to be even more readable. Everything is just right.

    The goatskin cover and lining are a dream to hold in my hand. But it lies flat for study.

    And now the box. (What a hoot to read reviews of a box). Since I plan on reading my bible, the box will only be used for taking up space in a drawer.

    I will definitely be ordering this bible the day it becomes available in the ESV.

  10. Martin Biggs

    I second the sentiment about ordering when it comes out in the ESV. A single column offering in ESV is LONG overdue. Single column might not be traditional, but it is superior in every way for those who actually read their Bibles. As soon as Treveris is available in ESV, I’m there for my first Schuyler! Please rush this!

    Hi. I have had my Treveris for about 6 months now. Overall, it is a nice bible. I do think it needs a few improvements to make it a great bible. The goatskin binding, ribbon markers, print quality, and art guilting are all exceptional. Evangelicalbible.com was/is a GREAT company. The reason I gave only 3 stars was for more improvements to be made, mainly 2.

    One improvement would be thicker paper. The pages are hard to separate and turn. The paper hinders the reading experience when you have to struggle to turn the pages. It becomes very annoying. I would love to see thicker paper in future renditions. 28gsm paper is way to thin. Schuyler could also save some weight of the bible by cutting out the maps and (too small to read) concordance in the back. This is suppose to be a “true” reading bible, cut out the filler in the back and use heavier paper.

    Second, I would like to see a larger font. Possibly an 11 or even 12pt font. Some larger paragraphs are harder to read. Sometimes you read the same line or skip ahead a line. Larger font size and better spacing would make the bible easier to read.

    I hope Schuyler will improve the Treveris platform and make an easier “reader.”
