DPK5 Stars Out Of 5Great BibleFebruary 3, 2018DPKQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love the simplicity of this Bible. It's not easy to find wide-margin copies in the 2 column layout that have only God's words (minus headings, of course) in the body. I don't miss the references or notes of other Bibles. With this format I can make connections that naturally exist in the Bible. The margins give ample room for notes and the font size is just right. I believe the paper quality has decreased in the last few years; I'd love to see the slightly glossier, thicker paper return, and the binding could be a littler stronger. Overall, I am extremely happy with my copies of this note-taker's Bible.
Debbie MWisconsinAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5A very basic Bible, margins aren't big enough for in-depth studyJanuary 20, 2015Debbie MWisconsinAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1My thoughts:
This is a very basic Bible. A no-frills Bible, if you will. It does have larger margins, but only on the side, as well as the bottom of the page, for a total of 2 margins. The print is a bit smaller than my regular study Bible. It does have a limited concordance in the back, and no maps.
The extra margin space does not give me enough room to write in, though. You can add a couple of words for clarification in the margins, and that might be fine if you are just hearing random sermons. Right now, our pastor is going through the book of Revelation, and there just isn't enough room to write just a couple small words in the margins. I assigned the column closest to the left or right side of the page for the closest margin, and the inner column assigned to the bottom margin. Then, I use stars and asterisks (and in different colors) to be able to find my clarification in the appropriate margin.
This is neither here, nor there, but upon flipping through the pages of the Bible, there is a blue tint. It's not too distracting, but it's not a pure white page.
It has been very sturdy, being carried back and forth to church, as well as being used in our daily family devotions.
So, if I had to decide which Bible to use, this would be nice in a small study, but not in-depth expository preaching.
I received this hard cover KJV Note-Takers Bible free, from Book Look Bloggers, for my honest review. The opinions were my own. :)
revmattsherro4 Stars Out Of 5Very Nice. Might leave something to be desiredJanuary 19, 2015revmattsherroQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3I want a Wide Margin Bible for study and I want a thin/smaller Bible for carrying with me; those used to be mutually exclusive concepts
The KJV Note-Takers Bible from Zondervan is a departure from previous wide margin editions. This time it is essentially a thin-line edition with wide margins. I like this idea but there are a couple things missing that I wish were there. Without further adieu, lets begin
Full KJV Text
1 1/8 outer margin
Red-letter (I could really do without this in a Bible meant to be written in)
The first thing you notice when you open this Bible are the delicious margins. At a generous 1 1/8, you will find plenty of room for writing. As I have said of other wide margin Bibles, this is where the magic happens. Personal Cross References, word studies, that point from the sermon you just cant forget; all this and more can be found in these generous margins. Even though the Bible contains the same text for everyone, God does not speak the same things to any two people. Your personal walk with God; the record of it is here.
Text and Layout
This is an 8-point text but it is very readable for being so small. It is an understandable trade off for the portability. The double column layout is also necessary to have the smaller footprint.
Generally, a red-letter text does not bother me. Here, though, it is a real irritant for me. I use more than one color of ink and the red is definitely going to get in my way.
The concordance is 64 pages with 2 columns per page. It is fairly standard and not really anything to get excited about.
What I wish was here:
References. While my usage of references is intermittent, a huge number of readers would really benefit from having references included. This could easily be accomplished using a side column reference format.
A premium edition. Genuine leather or calfskin would be very nice.
Overall I really like this Bible. It is kind of niche but something I would recommend to any Bible student.
