Cambridge Bibles! Mar 15, 2008
I received my first ever Cambridge Bible in KJV Black French Morocco Leather. I couldn't have been more satisfied, the quality is superb!!!! If your looking for a nice quality bible that is the right size and nice get this one!! I was also surpirsed when I received my bible in 3 days regular shipping.
Simple and great Dec 12, 2007
This Cambridge Standard Text Edition is great. It has great binding, a nice font size, and overall very attractive. It does not have words of Christ in red, nor a ribbon marker. But for a simple, readable text Bible, this is the best out there.
I'm not a KJV only person, but.... Dec 5, 2007
I was a little concerned when I noticed (from the excerpt that this site includes) that in Gen 1:2 "Spirit of God" is written as follows, "spirit of God". Since it is referring to God here, I'm thinking "spirit" should be capitalized.
Maybe some Bible scholar can correct/reprimand/educate me on this.
Horrible (-1 Star) May 7, 2007
I've given up on the so called "Cambridge Quality". They are sloppy in comparison to years past. The books are still sewn, however, they are using glue in addition to sewing the signatures. I do not mind although the glue is being used in excess to the point where the pages toward the binding have either glue drippings on the tail band or on the edge of the pages. Then on another occasion when I ordered directly from Cambridge through Baker Publishers, the two copies that I ordered were the hardcover text edition that were sent to me with the back covers detached down half the length of the spine. The fact that they sent them out in such condition makes no sense. You know I can understand if they want to increase the pace of their production, however, if they are not even going to inspect their production before sending them out to the consumers, then that explains where their commitment is. They are not the same as they use to be Twenty- not even Ten years ago. If you are considering buying a Cambridge bound Bible. Save your your money and buy on that has been bound in the States instead, because you will be getting the same quality for alot less money.
Easy on the eyes Apr 10, 2007
This is a very high quality Bible. The French Morocco leather cover is thick, yet soft and pliable. The pages were not stuck together like most Bibles when they're new. Large type is dark and extremely easy to read. Self-pronouncing text on difficult names and places is not distracting. Amazingly, this Bible isn't very heavy. The paper quality is nice, but if you use highlighters you'll want to use the dry kind to avoid bleed through. Great Bible at a great price for those looking for text-only Bible.
