Editorial Reviews

Review

Of all the famous Cambridge editions of the Bible this one is particularly handsome. The text is 'black print' with a very readable font and font size, and there is just the plain, pure text on each page with no distractions. If you want a classic, plain, pure and unadorned King James Bible this is the standard edition available. When I look at mine laying on the table right now it looks like it could've been in the pack-saddle of a conquistador in the New World, or on the work bench of John Bunyan, or in the hands of a missionary on a great sailing ship in the eighteenth century, or in the possession of a settler on the Great Plains of the United States in the nineteenth century... amazon reviewer from California

This is THE CLASSIC personal edition of the THE CLASSIC version of the Bible in the English language. Anyone who desires a personal, beautiful edition of the KJV (without any "bells 'n whistles"), this is the edition you're looking for. The quality and beauty of this book, as well as its easily readable type, make this edidion of the Classic KJV a real winner. You won't be disappointed. amazon reviewer from New York --This text refers to the Leather Bound edition.

Book Description

The Standard Text Bible offers the text of the King James Version in an exceptionally clear and readable type. The size of the Bible makes it a handy buy for someone who wants a type that's easy to read, but still wants a Bible that is light to carry. The Bible includes a glossary of 14 pages which explains some of the lesser- known words of 17th Century English, and a Bible reading guide.

I heartily recommend it.

All in all, this standard text edition is a great buy if you are looking for a well constructed Bible without a lot of mass.

I awaken before dawn each day and spend time in this wonderful volume.

I was looking for a nice, easy to carry KJV Bible, so I picked up a Cambridge KJV Standard Text Edition Black French Morocco Leather 43 model. It is the perfect size, and has a beautiful leather cover. The text is about the largest that I've seen in a Bible this small. It includes a dictionary for those now obscure old English terms.

This is a very basic Bible as there are no textual notes, or concordance. No cross references either. This helps to keep the Bible small. This is the original King James style. "Saviour" is spelled with seven letters, not the modern six letter "Savior", for instance. No brackets around the longer ending of Mark, or notes about the "trinity verse" otherwise known as 1 John 5:7.

The only downside is that the paper is not as nice as that found in the other Cambridge Bibles. The more expensive Cambridge Bibles have absolutely beautiful paper. Keep in mind though, that at less than $45, this Bible is about the best constructed Bible that you will find.

All in all, this standard text edition is a great buy if you are looking for a well constructed Bible without a lot of mass. Keep in mind that it won't have a concordance, or maps. It is though, light, and a very attractive Bible. If you want something nice, but simple, this is your Bible.

Even the standard text edition here, has a good-sized font. The Cambridge quality is unexcelled(unless by those of Allan Bibles of Glasgow). I am very grateful to the folks at Cambridge for installing a glossary at the back of the Bible to put the myriads of archaic words into modern, understandable English. Unfortunately, the Large Print Text edition does not have this almost-necessary feature. For an outstanding quality Text Edition, this is it. It also has a long ribbon marker, which a lot of companies are shortening, to the point where they only barely extend past the bottom of the page. Kudos to Cambridge. As an added note, I find the reviews by certain 'yaygs' who set themselves up as Theologians and criticise the very Word of God to be laughable at best, pathetic at worst.

I'll have to revise my earlier review where I complained about "onion-thin" pages.
In fact, compared to other Bibles, this one is the best in terms of print clarity, font, letter size, and general attractiveness. I've bought several (expensive) Bibles, which turned out to be much less pleasing than this one.
The onion-thin pages are the norm with Bibles, and so not a point of criticism. In fact, I recently dicovered that good-quality editions of classics are usually made of this paper ...if it is india-paper.
Anyway--that's my correction to my last review. Enjoy this edition!

For scholarly study and analysis of the Bible, described as a "surpassing wonder" by historian Donald Harman Akenson, there are thousands of resources to which I can go. However, sometimes I desire only to read through passages in the Bible - particularly the Psalms, prophetic books and the Gospels - merely reflecting and drawing on the spiritual riches to be discovered therein. So, I don't want pronunciation marks, notes, references, red-letter text or other things to distract me. This Bible meets this need for the most part. I only wish it included the Apocrypha as well.

The type is large enough that even my over-used eyes read over the text with minimal strain. The lack of "helpful" diacritics and the other items described above make reading this Bible a pleasure to hold and read. Like all Cambridge Bibles, this too is well made and beautiful to behold. And, last but not least, the price is right!

The Cambridge Bibles are indeed the highest quality in print. This particular version, the KJV Standard Text Edition (Black French Morocco Leather) is the nicest packaged Bible I have seen. Outstanding leather, excellent paper, and bar-none the easiest-on-the-eyes text available in print today make it wonderful for reading. No cluttery references or pronunciation marks, no red-lettering (after all, neither were in the original AV translation or most of the subsequent revisions) and a simple dictionary in the back are nice features. Furthermore, there is no copyright in the front, a feature loved by any KJV fan, since the text of the KJV is public domain.
This Bible would make an outstanding gift for anyone interested in the things of God.

I decided to buy this bible because of the good reviews about it's quality. Unfortunately, the bible I received was of poor quality and finished badly. Very disappointing for a bible of this price. The only thing I like about this bible is the quality of the leather on the outside. Leather on the inside is cut badly and binding is distorted. Every page has a different print quality which is also disappointing. So, this item is not to recommend for it's quality and price.
