Recently, I received The Rose Chronological Guide to the Bible. This is a 178-page large spiral bound primer on the entire Bible. Filled with charts, maps, and beautiful photographs, the Guide gives you a solid introduction of the biblical story in chronological order. Aside from a few disagreements on the chronology, I found the guide to be accurate on the whole and a delight to thumb through. Note that this is not a detailed work by any means, it’s a... Read more

Thomas Nelson recently send me their NKJV Comfort Print Single-Column Reference Bible (Premier Collection). This is a gorgeous Bible. The goatskin cover is incredible. And the single-column format is super easy to read. It truly is a treasure. I’ve put this one on a special shelf, side down. (You never want to store premium Bibles vertically as you would most books. Goatskin covers are too precious for that.) The Scripture references on the side are both helpful and cosmetically appealing,... Read more

Recently, the publisher graciously sent me a copy of The Berean Study Bible for review. The version I received has the soft leather-like cover (which is what the link above will bring you to). I really like the look and feel of this Bible. The translation is pretty accurate as well. It’s a fresh rendering. This isn’t the kind of study Bible that has commentator notes. Instead, the notes give insight into manuscript differences and divergent renderings. The Bible is... Read more

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

The NASB Comfort Print Preacher’s Bible is a striking premium Bible. I simply love it. The Bible is part of the Premier Collection and published by Zondervan. This is a quality product. The goatskin leather cover is not only elegant, but it’s well made (some Bible have thin goatskin leather covers, but this one is perfect). The interior design is beautiful. Chapter and verse numbers are in red, along with section titles. The verse-by-verse format makes it super easy for... Read more

He is the author or editor of many books, including Jesus the God-Man, Jesus according to Scripture, Studying the Historical Jesus, and major commentaries on... Read more

The NRSV Personal-Size Large-Print Bible Premier Collection, Comfort Print is an amazing Bible! It contains the Apocrypha (which I believe is historical not inspired), and it comes in premium Goatskin leather. The color is purple, which I happen to really like. This is an elegant product, for sure. And the Goatskin leather cover is far superior to Calfskin leather covers. This a description from the publisher. The NRSV Personal-Size Large-Print Bible with Apocrypha brings the NRSV translation into the elegance of... Read more

So I’ve really been getting into goatskin Bibles. Recently, Crossway sent me the ESV Heirloom Bible, Omega Edition. This is a beautiful Bible. The cover is amazing to the touch. Goatskin leather beats calfskin any day. This particular cover smells like cowboy boots. Awesome! It’s also the only Bible I’ve ever seen that has four ribbons. The ESV Heirloom Bible, Omega Edition combines elegance with readability. Manufactured with the finest materials, this Bible is printed and bound with unparalleled craftsmanship by Royal... Read more
