Schuyler NIV Quentel Reference Bible in Dark Green Calfskin

I first encountered the Quentel series three years ago, when I reviewed Shuyler’s original, full-size ESV Quentel. I knew then that this series was going to be something special. I even waxed dramatic in my conclusion, saying that in publishing the Quentel, Schuyler had taken the lead in the premium Bible publishing industry. Three years … More Schuyler NIV Quentel Reference Bible in Dark Green Calfskin

Schuyler NIV Personal Size Quentel Reference Bible in Slate Goatskin

A few months ago, I received my copy of the Schuyler NIV Personal Size Quentel (PSQ) in ‘slate’ (aka ‘vintage black’) goatskin. Now, I have written about the ESV PSQ and the KJV PSC. So when the NIV was announced, I thought, “Haven’t I already said everything I had to say about Schuyler’s PSQ line?” … More Schuyler NIV Personal Size Quentel Reference Bible in Slate Goatskin

Schuyler’s ESV Personal Size Quentel Reference Bible

Two years ago, in my review of Schuyler’s original, full-size ESV Quentel, I wrote: Cambridge has published Bibles since 1583, and R. L. Allan & Son since 1863. These are really the only other companies that compare to Schuyler in the scope and variety of Bible and translation offerings.  And guess how long Schuyler has been … More Schuyler’s ESV Personal Size Quentel Reference Bible

ไม่ได้เจอกันนานมาก! More reviews are a ‘comin!

ไม่ได้เจอกันนานมาก basically means “long time no see” in Thai. I’m sorry for such a long hiatus! It has been just over a year since I last posted. I’ve been trying to adjust to a new language and culture, and help my family do the same, so I hope you will forgive me! But we’ve successfully … More ไม่ได้เจอกันนานมาก! More reviews are a ‘comin!

ESV Heirloom Thinline Bible in Brown Calfskin (Crossway)

This review will bring my portfolio up-to-date viz a viz Crossway’s luxurious Heirloom line of ESV Bibles. I reviewed the Heirloom Omega here (and here), the Heirloom Legacy here (and here), and the Heirloom Wide Margin here. If I’ve been disappointed by anything at all, it has been the use of what may be “a-tad-thin-for-notetaking” paper on the Wide Margin. Otherwise, I unequivocally recommend each of these editions to the prospective … More ESV Heirloom Thinline Bible in Brown Calfskin (Crossway)

Your Premium Bible “Hobby” Might be Idolatry IF…

Okay, I realize I’ll step on a lot of toes in this list (if I didn’t already do so by virtue of the title). So let me state two disclaimers from the outset. First, I am an insider to this struggle. I am quite the opposite of someone who has never owned an expensive, animalskin-covered Bible and therefore cannot … More Your Premium Bible “Hobby” Might be Idolatry IF…

A Review of J. Mack Stiles, Evangelism: How the Whole Church Speaks of Jesus

This is a really good book, and it is part of a really good series: Building Healthy Churches, part of 9 Marks, published by Crossway. We Westerners in particular tend to approach many topics through an individualistic mindset–“its about me and my walk with Jesus first, and then maybe about the community.” This series approaches … More A Review of J.
