    This is one of the best bible purchases I\’ve made at this price-point, without question. The crisp, clean text is very refreshing to the eyes… and added to that the expanded references and word helps, this is an exceptional bible purchase. And the leather is very nice… better than anything I\’ve seen at this price. But if it had the RL Allan highland goatskin with the full yapp treatment, I\’d buy myself another one of these.

    This is a very good Bible for the price. The quality of the calfskin is excellent and very smooth. The only issue is the cardboard used in the covers is stiff and tends to curl making it a Bible I have to sandwich between 2 other books to flatten the cover out.
    Opens flat since it is sewn and a lot of resources for study

    Overall, a very nice bible for the price, but the major drawback for me is the references are too small, other than that it would have made a great reference bible.

    Wow! I am thrilled with this bible! I love the off-white page color – I think it will be very easy on the eye. The layout and font make for great readability and I like the more modern setting. Even the concordance is very readable. I use the built-in concordance in my bibles a lot and some of them are not that easy to read, even when the scripture text is. The ribbons are not Allan\’s luxurious ones but they are adequate and I like that there are four of them in two different colors. As others have mentioned, the cover is not Allan goatskin floppy, but if you like a firmer cover or don\’t care one way or the other, you\’ll be happy. While the cover itself is not floppy, the binding is very flexible and lays flat. The calfskin is beautiful The bible is a nice size – hefty, but not too large (I have small hands). The 8 newly designed maps are attractive and very readable and nicely cover the minimum of what you\’d expect. There are several pages of blank, unlined paper following the concordance. (It is the same paper as the bible text, not a heavier stock.) I was thinking about getting the Clarion KJV (I already have the ESV), but am very glad I opted for this instead. You can\’t beat the price point. Now I\’m thinking I may save up for the Schuyler binding of this when it comes out next year!

    I love God\’s Word! I would love it if it was bound in construction paper! There is nothing like holding those words which have been preserved and passed down through the ages,especially when they are covered with wonderful leather! This Bible snuck up on me. It wasn\’t on my list. Somehow I had never heard of TBS. But when I saw this Bible online, I knew I had to check it out! It fits that size between compact and huge wide-margin very well. Though the layout is a little \”modern\” it still has an old-world elegence. It reminds me of my Thompson\’s Chain Reference but not as bulky. I LOVE the leather. It\’s much softer than calfsplit but I doubt it is as soft as Highland Goatskin. I\’m so pleased with this edition! I keep glancing at my new Westminster out of the corner of my eye and I really think this will be one of my favorites! It will be a great way to \”practice\” for the Schuyler KJV which will use this same great format! Evangelical Bible really has the best selection and the best prices, as well as the best costumer service and delivery times. They prove that to me with each order. (I only have about 4 or 5…..or 8 more Bibles to get!)

    I am very impressed with this bible. The cover is a little stiff but I am sure will work out. The text is very easy to read and the paper color makes it great. I really do hope it holds up and will be my main reading/study bible for many many years to come.

  7. John Sanford (verified owner)

    I bought this bible because I wanted John Brown of Haddington’s cross-references. I like the look of the double column with reference columns on each side. The references also include definitions of archaic words in the King James, which would be especially useful for those not familiar with the King James.

    I have purchased TBS bibles before, so I expected quality. This bible exceeded my expectations! The paper is very good with minimal ghosting. The print is excellent and legible. The bible opens flat cover to cover, even at the title page. The calfskin is very soft to the touch. The cover has some flex to it, but it is limited by the boards. If you are expecting edge-lined goatskin floppy, you may be disappointed.

    Amazing bible for a great price.

    My favorite combination..affordable yet QUALITY! This bible is similar to a Thompson Chain without all the “stuff in the back.” Very portable addition slightly large than the Long primer. The font is a great size with good paper. If you are a Authorized Version preferred person, you can’t go wrong with this one. It’s a great price to value bible!

    Let me tell you how impressed I am with this Bible! This is now my new favorite format/layout of any Bible that I own (100 +). I love the new, modern font, the dictionary of archaic words imbedded into the margins, the 4 ribbon markers, the verse format, and the calfskin leather. Oh, it also opens up and will lay flat to whatever page you open to, thanks to the smythe sewn binding! This Bible is an A+ all the way!

    I ordered both this leather edition of this bible as well as one of the hardcover copies ofthe same from TBS when they were announced.

    I have had the calfskin edition for a couple weeks now.

    The binding is of very good quality, the covers while not as flexible as my Allans, are not unreasonably stiff either. They are calfskin over a light card which offers good support to the bookblock, and should protect the pages well. The calfskin is very buttery soft, quite nice to the touch.

    The paper used is fantastic. It is a little offwhite without much ghosting from the backside. This bible appears to have been printed using line matching so ghosting is even further reduced. The typeface used is very easy to read, and the line spacing reduces reading fatigue, even the cross references are easy to read.

    The cross references are the best I have seen to date in any bible, FAR more helpfull than those cambridge has been putting out in the last many years. 200,000 references and most of them helpful is a treat.

    The ribbons are just ok. While long enough they are unfortunately thin. This makes me worry about damaging the pages with them.

    The inclusion of the Translators to the Readers is great.

    Overall this is a great bible, especially at evangelical Bible\’s price.
