Review: Cambridge ESV Clarion Black Goatskin

Cambridge Promise

Cambridge was kind enough to send me a copy of their new ESV Clarion Reference Black Goatskin Bible. This is a beautiful Bible and pictures really do not do it justice. It is firm yet supple. It is solid but not heavy. It is portable yet easy to read. This is simply a great edition and if you are looking for a new Bible I highly recommend this one.

To see how this Bible is made check out Mark Bertrands blog post here. If you wish to buy this bible you can buy it from Evangelical Bible, Christian Book Distributors, and Amazon.

Features of this Edition:

  • paragraph format
  • smyth-sewn
  • superb readability
  • text runs across the page like an ordinary book
  • india paper
  • black-letter text
  • side-column cross references
  • concordance
  • 15 color maps
  • two ribbons
  • gilt or art gilt pages

  1. I’ve read some good stuff here. Definitely price bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much attempt you set to make one of these magnificent informative web site.

  2. Thank you for sharing excellent informations. Your site is very cool. I’m impressed by the details that you’ve on this web site. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for extra articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found just the info I already searched everywhere and just could not come across. What an ideal web-site.

  3. A formidable share, I just offered this onto a colleague who was engaging in a tad examination on this. And he the fact is acquired me breakfast for the reason that I found it for him.. smile. So allow me to reword that: Thnx for that treat! But yeah Thnkx for paying time to debate this, I think strongly about this and adore studying significantly more on this topic. If possible, while you grow to be knowledge, would you mind updating your blog page with far more particulars? It can be seriously advantageous for me. Enormous thumb up for this web site post!

  4. I have an ESV Readers Reference from Allan’s which is going well. Having said that, if’n I could go back in time (or was cashed up) I almost certainly would buy one of these ESV Clarions instead. I’m becoming quite the fan of the single column setting, and for some reason I’m really appreciating the aesthetics of thicker Bibles; more nostalgic perhaps or maybe it’s the illusion of heftiness. Anyway, great blog, keep it up!

    1. I agree Jimmy, I do appreciate the bigger Bible. This is a great one for doing a lot of reading but I find it difficult for teaching/studying.

      My preference for study is verse reference either single or double column. Thank you for the comment!
