The NRSV Single-Column Reference Bible, Comfort Print is a Bible in the premium line that Zondervan publishers, which is an amazing line of Bibles. I love the look and feel of this Bible. Like Zondervan’s other premium Bibles, it has a goatskin leather cover. Goatskin is far superior to cowhide. Out of all the major translations, I’ve used the NRSV the least, but it’s a solid translation that I will be using more in my reading. This Bible also features… Read more

The ESV Preaching Bible, Verse-by-Verse Edition published by Crossway is a beautiful Bible. The layout is elegant. The verse-by-verse format makes it super easy for preaching, and the one-column design is cosmetically appealing, making it an easy read. The way the Bible is put together is top-notch also. The only complaint I have, which is a minor one, is that the goatskin leather cover is a bit thin. But hey, it’s goatskin. And goatskin leather covers are always premium. Here’s… Read more

Recently, a friend of mine told me about premium Bibles. He said that if I ever have a goatskin leather Bible, I’ll never recover. Well, he was right.

I’ve got to say, this is the most amazing Bible I’ve ever had the pleasure of handling – and owning – in my life. Stunning. Elegant. Beautiful. Breathtaking. This Bible… Read more

The Standard: Discovering Jesus as The Standard for Masculinity is a new book by Josh Khachadourian. I caught up with Josh recently to discuss his book. Enjoy! What is the premise of The Standard? I wrote this book to present Jesus as the Standard for true masculinity. Discovering Jesus as the standard for masculinity is generally unknown. The identity of men is under attack. Countless men are choosing a life of comfort and convenience. While others are striving, driven by… Read more
