  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Steven Veach | 2/10/2014

    " I'm not sure if this is exactly the same bible I have. It is the NKJV, though, and you can't really go terribly wrong with this version. It is more dependable than most modern translations [NIV, Message, Living, etc]. I started off with the KJV [couldn't read it]. Then I went to the NIV and it was the first translation I read through completely. By that point I was conversing with Independent Fundamental Baptists [you guessed it, KJV 1611 only proponents] who said my NIV was from the devil. I researched it on my own and came away a little disappointed. I searched for a replacement translation that had the Majority Text in the main translation and the Critical Text in the margins [opposite of the NIV] and I landed on the NKJV. Don't get me wrong, there are many translation problems with the NKJV - many of them deal with unnecessary word choice so they could copyright the text. To combat this, I decided to just avoid the controversy altogether. I now use the Apostolic Bible Polyglot Interlinear for my base text (utilizing Textus Receptus and Sinaiticus to cross-reference), then also have most major English translations available for cross-reference, using the NKJV as my main reading bible. Of course, in the end, I have grown so dissatisfied with all modern English translations that I have started my own translation that remains readable while still clearly identifying translator involvement. If you are in the market for a bible, get the NKJV. It's not without problems, but it's pretty reliable if you use your due diligence. "

    " The quality and craftsmanship of this edition is impressive, I admire the skill that went into it's making. It's fine Goatskin cover is simply beautiful and a delight to hold. Fresh out of the box this edition is flexible and molds to fit your hand (a quality which is highly sought after in leather bound Bibles). When compared to my other compact Bibles the Smyth sewn binding of this edition lays flatter than any other compact edition. Unlike many compact Bibles this edition stays open with out having to hold your place. It can even be read on a table and still remain open, which is very impressive. The quality of the paper is surprisingly strong, this is one of the few ultra-thin Bibles that I feel comfortable flipping through it's pages. I have always been drawn to compact Bibles since they can be carried with ease and read anywhere. The size of the Pitt Minion size is prefect for this task because of it's lit weight and ultra-thin design. Despite its small size the text of this edition is very readable. Unlike most compacts I can read several chapters with out eyestrain. Through if you plan to study in depth I would recommend an edition with larger print. But for lit reading this edition is perfect. This edition has became one of my primary Bibles for lit study and devotional reading because of its quality, durability and craftsmanship. If you are looking for an ultra-thin Bible that will with stand years of daily use I recommend this edition. The price is four times the cost of mass-produced editions, but it's worth the cost because this Bible is built to last a lifetime. "

    " This is an amazing Bible. I have the Goatskin Leather version and over time is has become an amazingly supple book. I love the wide margins for notes and the thick paper for highlighting. With all the notes I have in it and the time I have spent reading it using Professor Horner's Bible reading system, this Bible has become my most prized possession. That's just the start. The more time you spend in the Word, the hungrier you will be for it. It changed my life and it changes it every day. Love this book. It will be in my currently reading shelf until the day I die. "

    " This is probably the BEST book I have ever read. Just half the stuff in here is incomprehendable "
