(Every bible in this review are all fantastic bibles).

The picture of the brown leather bible on the header of this post is the “preaching bible” in this video review.

Here are a couple of stock images of the “preaching bible’s” text block:

I no longer own that bible, (as I gave it away to some one), but I frequently miss it.

I LOVE how the teal blue topical headings contrast against the text of scripture!

You open any page in this bible, and POW! You immediately see what’s going on on any given page. The paper is super thick and opaque (around 40 GSM) and the font is VERY bold. Making it a stellar reader.

If you can live without having red-letter, the Thomas Nelson “preaching bible” is one of the best bibles that I’ve ever seen for readability. (And I’ve owned several high end bibles such as: R. L. Allan, Schuyler, and Cambridge), but this “preaching bible” is superior to all of them for readability).

In fact, I’d take it any day over those other high end bibles, (even if I could take my pick of any of them free of charge).

Moreover, the only downside to the thinline large print bible in my video review is that it has no cross references.

However both bibles are fantastic readers, because both of them have good paper & line matching.

Therefore only you can decide which is more important to you…having cross references, or having red-letter?
