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.
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!
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!
This Bible would make an outstanding gift for anyone interested in the things of God.
The only thing about the description on the box cover that may be misleading is the "words of Christ in red" statement. If you attempt to find the words that Christ speaks in the book of Revelation, they will not be in red. Acts 9 (Saul's conversion) does not have Christ's words in red. On the title page for the New Testament, the following is found in red print: WITH THE WORDS OF OUR LORD WHILE UPON EARTH PRINTED IN RED. Obviously this applies to the Gospels and the epistles that quote Christ's words while He had His earthly ministry. In my opinion, this does not make this Bible any less valuable.
This edition does not have any center-line cross references, footnotes or any other "extras" that can come in handy, if you are used to using them. There is not a concordance, nor any maps. There is a Bible word list after the New Testament. This gives brief definitions of archaic words found in the KJV or words that have changed in meaning from the time of writing to the present. A two-year Bible reading plan is also included. If you like simplicity, this is the Bible to have.
The 8-point text size is easy on the eyes. It is comfortable to hold or have on your lap as it is lightweight. Cambridge has done another fine job in producing this Bible edition. I heartily recommend it.

This Bible is really nice and has a clean layout. Great for just reading. The cover is really nice and the smell of real leather every time I grab it is very enjoyable.Published 6 months ago by KiNG
This is what is called a handsized bible. I like it because it has no center column references, which make it easier to read. Also, the text is very black, which is also a plus. Read morePublished 7 months ago by David Owens
