Book Description

This is Cambridge's first Bible in the NKJV and it uses the classic Pitt Minion format. The Bible is compact yet its type is still large enough to read comfortably. It features red-letter text with cross-references and includes a concordance and maps. Printed on high quality India paper with gilt edges, it is bound in black French Morocco leather. --This text refers to an alternate Leather Bound edition.

Customer Reviews

I love the goatskin NKJV pitt Minion Bible.
Tim4Yeshua
Smythe sewn binding is considered the highest quality of book binding methods, the pages are sewn and glued to the spine resulting in a very durable binding.
RebelReader
The paragraph layout flows SO much better, it truly feels like you are reading the writers handwriting.

The New King James Version Pitt Minion reference edition is an ultra-thin, hand-sized Bible that offers many of the helpful features found in a full sized reference edition while remaining travel friendly. Widely admired for it's ultra-thin form, good readability, and elegant design the Pitt Minion format is one of the most popular editions published by Cambridge University Press.
Traditional art-gilt page edges, a matching red ribbon marker, and a cover bound in superb quality black Goatskin, gives this edition an elegant appearance reminiscent of the classic compact Bibles of the 1900's.

About The Binding & Cover:
The cover of this edition is crafted from superb quality Goatskin leather. Fresh out of the box, the cover of this edition is supple, and flexible. The grain of the leather is excellent with well-defined texture and rich color. Goatskin (Genuine Moroccan leather) is thin, durable leather that will with stand many years of use. Over time the leather will grow more supple and flexible which many search for in high quality Bibles. The Smythe sewn binding of this edition is impressive. Unlike many hand-sized Bibles on the market the NKJV Pitt Minion Goatskin edition lays flat when opened on a table or in your hand. It is very rare to find a hand-sized Bible that will remain open hands free. Smythe sewn binding is considered the highest quality of book binding methods, the pages are sewn and glued to the spine resulting in a very durable binding. Bibles with Smythe sewn bindings can be read and reread for years without falling apart. Smythe sewn Bibles will with stand more abuse than those with glued bindings. Smythe sewn book printing and binding gets its name from its inventor, an Irish-American named David McConnell Smythe (1833-1807) Size: 4.75 x 6.875 inches.

I recently had the opportunity to choose between this Bible and the Nelson UltraSlim Signature Series NKJV. Both feature genuine brown leather covers and sewn bindings. That's where the similarities end, however, and I chose this Pitt Minion in a heartbeat.

The cover is not exactly what I was expecting. It is a bit stiff and shiny at first, not entirely unlike the "bonded leather" of other Bibles. It is genuine goatskin, however, and in just a few days it began to soften and conform to my hands. The lining material is very nice, and the craftsmanship all around is remarkable.

The sewn binding is wonderful for a Bible of this size. Small Bibles tend to clam up awkwardly, but after a few days of use this one will gladly lay open on a desk ... anywhere from the Genesis to the concordance!

The pages are printed on excellent paper that is remarkably opaque for its weight. The paper is a nice golden off-white color, and the art gilding (gold over red) on the edges adds a unique visual touch that goes well with the brown and paper hues.

The remaining details are all well done including the concordance, maps, and dual place marker ribbons. Without going on for hours, I can say this is the nicest small Bible I have ever owned. I would deduct a fraction of a point for the initial stiffness of the cover, but since Amazon operates on whole star ratings it gets a 5/5.

I bought the Goatskin. For me, it's the absolute best. The Pitt Minion is a good reference Bible and I've waited a long time for Cambridge to move into the NKJV arena. I pray they will also come out with a study Bible in this translation. Cambridge does it suberbly!

At long last Cambridge has published the New King James Version! I purchased the goat skin which is very nice, but not as supple as calf skin. Unfortunately it only comes in black. The binding is the best there is, period. Right out of the box you can turn anywhere in the Bible and the pages lay flat open. Just try that with any other Bible and you'll see how rare this is.

The cross references are the more abundant ones that come in the study Bibles like the MacArthur Study Bible, rather than the abridged ones that come in Nelson's or Holman's ultra-slim reference Bibles. This is a major advantage because, along with huge amount of cross references and additional textual and translation notes, it adds a lot of study material in such a small, compact Bible.

The biggest dissappointment is the very small font (6.75), but that is the trade-off with getting a compact Bible. The Pocket Companion Bible is about the same size Bible, but has larger text size (without cross references).

This edition also includes a concordance and an excellent set of Bible maps from Moody Bible Institute (same as those in the Ryrie Study Bible).

This Bible sets the standard in quality workmanship. Highly recommended!

My last bible i had for around 16 years. From age 10-26. Have no idea how that bonded leather Nelson held up, but it did. Until it got to the point where I thought it best to let it retire with dignity. I have to admit, the amount of usage I got out of that copy spoiled me. I shuddered at the thought of replacing it. So, when I went to the bookshop, I had one thing on my mind. Two really, quality and durability. I wanted a bible that would be likely to last me the next 16 or so years without replacement. The clerk directed me to the Cambridge series. His words, "This will be the bible they bury you with". That piqued my interest. So, I pick it up. Feels good, nice leather. Open it up, it feels like a part of me. I'm a bit of a book geek(not as bad as some), and i've never felt this way about a book. I had to have it!! Right then! The only caveat, I didn't have the [...] the shop was retailing for. This is where I interject another quote from the salesguy, "people will throw down [...] on an iPod, why not invest [...] on a bible that you will use everyday for the next 30+ years??" He makes a point. If this bible lasts me 20 years(very possible since i'm kinder to things now as an "adult"), that's 5 "normal" bible lives. Which would be [...]. If thirty years, 6 bibles at [...]. I'll let you finish the math fun. Plus, there is no getting used to new bibles. A big save for me. So, not having the cash, I put it on my x-mas list :D Had to wait a bit, but I'm ok with that.

Now, one thing everyone should be aware of: This version is laid out in PARAGRAPH form. Not the standard verse. At first, I thought this would bug the snot out of me. It took about 2 seconds to get used to it. I look at verse lay out now, and feel cheated.
