The best place I have found to buy quality Bibles is evangelicalbible.com, which carries Bibles from Cambridge University Press, Crossway Bibles, the Trinitarian Bible Society, and the Lockman Foundation. It is also the exclusive distributor of Schuyler Bible Publishers and the official U.S. distributor of R.L. Allan Bibles, which many regard to be the best leather-bound Bibles available. I have personally been very impressed with Schuyler, however, having owned both a Schuyler Single Column Paragraph NKJV Bible (in brown goatskin) and a Schuyler Quentel NKJV (a red letter edition in black goatskin). Both are outstanding, high quality Bibles, and I would highly recommend them. Schuyler also offers the KJV, ESV, NASB, and NLT versions. As the webpage at evangelicalbible.com states, “Schuyler Bibles are printed and bound in the Netherlands in one of the finest book binderies in Europe, Jongbloed. All Schuyler Bibles use only the finest materials in crafting its Bibles. From paper to natural grain Goatskin – the Schuyler label has determined to carve out a niche which will establish it as a unique label among Bible publishers.” For those of you who may not yet heard of Schuyler Bible Publishers, here is the information from their website:
SCHUYLER (pronounced Sky-ler) is the family name of the founder of Schuyler Bibles. Schuyler has its origin in the Dutch “schuilen” which means “shelter.” “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.” (Psalm 91:1) Schuyler Bible Publishers have been at the center of the high end Bible market for the past 12 years. Schuyler has quickly established its name as among the preeminent Bible publishers. Schuyler has published the English Standard Version, (ESV), the New King James Version (NKJV), the King James Version (KJV), the New American Standard Bible (NASB), and the New Living Translation (NLT).
Schuyler Bibles has had one simple mission – to produce Bibles whose quality extends to both Printing and Binding. Often customers are forced to choose between the two. We decided to produce Bibles with the best of both worlds. Paper quality, legibility and binding come together to produce the best crafted Bibles available.Schuyler Bibles all have the following characteristics:
A. All are printed in the Netherlands.
B. All have natural grain Goatskin.
C. All have Smyth sewn bindings.
D. All have perimeter stitching.
If you are looking to buy a high quality Bible for yourself or for a loved one, I highly recommend evangelicalbible.com, and I hope you will give Schuyler Bible Publishers a good look as well. The product is outstanding, and so is the customer service.
