AJ5 Stars Out Of 5Exactly what I OrderedSeptember 5, 2019AJQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It is a beautiful bible and I am so happy to add it to my collection. The price was a lot better than amazon, however the package took a long time to come because I chose free shipping. Thank you Christian Book.
mandy4 Stars Out Of 5WOW just WOWJuly 31, 2019mandyQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the best study Bible I've ever seen! If you are wanting to really dig into study this is the Bible for you. I was gifted this Bible from a sister in Christ! We are doing a complete Bible study together with it. We read, study, and discuss 10 chapters a week. I have learned so much from this and will continue to learn all the days of my life! This method compares scripture with scripture, hallelujah! God Bless you!
MackenzieAge: 45-54Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5Awesome bible reference system slightly let down by print qualityJune 12, 2019MackenzieAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Im overjoyed to have this in my hands. I kind of expect the few discrepancies to manifest themselves as per online reviews.
The shadow can be quite distracting but I will attempt to overcome that issue by using a reading card/bar. Its not totally bad but just an inconvenience in places - particularly when the font is italisized or there are illustrations or you are reading the red letter which is generally barely adequate though not a total failure.
They are the only negatives I had regarding the bible.
There was no 'foul stench' from the leather which I coated with proper cream which was absorbed well. The binding seems good, the signatures great (page by page flick), the paste down Ill keep an eye on but it seems alright to me.
The gilding is nice
The Thumb index is good (although the index is the same background colour throughout - not a problem.
Ribbon - nice
illustrations - awesome
The reference section print seems to be much better and the bold pilot numbers are excellent.
the clam shell box was battered and torn but I spent a few minutes with magic tape to patch it up - its good now.
Overall I'll say that Im very happy and content to have this in my home. I would wonder when the publisher will do a new print block - charge more, fine by me. This is simply too good a resource for bible readers to not develop or improve it where needed. Its happened with other translations - so what about for us KJV readers?
I would also like a full premium version of this: the whole works - Goat skin, calf skin inside, edge lined, gilt edging/lining etc etc.
No one can tell me that there wont be an abundant market for such a product ; )

Glenn Takacs2 Stars Out Of 5Very disappointed !!April 3, 2019Glenn TakacsQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1well I ordered the Black LG print Capri genuine leather Thompson chain, well the first one they sent was a Burgundy bonded leather so I called them about the mistake so they sent another one out and I sent the burgundy mistake back so waiting & expecting the normal nice Capri deep grain genuine leather bible, and so what they sent was a Thompson chain black that says genuine leather on the back but looks and feels like bonded leather nothing at all like all the Capri leather bibles you see with the deep grain the feels rough and durable and to top the cake it says Printed in CHINA !!! now on the Kirkbride web site they claim that they Print & Bind their bibles here in the UNITED STATES. So if this is the way that Kirkbride going with the printing and genuine leather than ......NO I would not recommend to a friend to buy.... so I went on the Church Bible Publishers web site and sent for a real Thompson from "CBP with a real nice leather cover and Printed in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" that should last a life time and the cover is soft like a baby's bottom !!!
