    As others have mentioned, these are high quality Bible’s which simply cannot be beat for the price. I ordered three. One 3 piece cover in faux calf skin, one 3 piece cover in ironed calf skin, and a 1 piece cover in ironed calf skin. Well made and beautiful, and a very comfortable size to hold. I would estimate the font size to be between 8 and 9. Church Bible Publishers packs their Bible’s with extreme care, and ships orders out quickly. I liked these so much that I ordered two of their large print-wide margin Bible’s and added a donation to help them to continue offering excellent Bible’s at an affordable price. Your search for a quality, real-deal, Authorized KJV Bible is over, you have found it.

    My son turned 3 years old last December. He received a blue CBP King James Bible. I pray that he will grow up reading It, understanding it and that it will last for his entire life here on Earth.

    This Bible is beautifully put together with gentle care.

    I cannot recommend Church Bible Publishers highly enough.

    First time dealing with Church Bible Publishers, I’m from Australia and had no problems dealing with them I ordered the compact bible and the quality is great I have bought the same bible through Cambridge and it fell apart within a short time I’m sure this CBP will last a life time, and the postage was even better there was tracking they packed there bibles so well there was no way it was going to get damaged, I will be ordering another bible in the future, thank you for your great service.

  7. Rated 5 out of 5


    Very nice KJV Bible. Fast shipping with the upgrade. Cover is probably the nicest calfskin I have seen. The printing is very good, some pages had small creases, but that will smooth out. The binding is top notch and it opens completely flat. Overall, I really like it, and I will enjoy reading the Word in this CBP wonderfully made Bible. Top notch in my book!

    I have the black Ironed calfskin, along with the black and purple synthetic. CBP’s synthetic leather,
    that they use.
    You can’t tell the difference between
    A genuine leather or the faux.
    This is one of my favorite carry- around Bibles.
    It is a perfect size .
    On top of that it is a Beautifully constructed Bible .
    You can be assured when purchasing a CBP Bible, you are getting one of the highest quality and heavy duty constructed Bibles that is out there on the market today.
    CBP that’s the only type of Bible they make. Bibles that will last you for years to come.
    The Color Purple in this Bible is exquisite.
    Text is just so crisp and clear so easy to read.
    And don’t let that it is called a compact Bible throw you off it is so very easy to read the font size is perfect.
    One more thing the perimeter stitching is done so well.
    You know what I can go on and on and on about a CBP Bible.
    But one thing I think should be mentioned, is that we need to realize that this is a Bible Ministry.
    And for this wonderful Ministry to continue.
    It needs our support.
    So next time you decide to purchase one of these elegant King James Bibles.
    Throw in a couple more dollars so that this ministry continues on for years to come. As well as their Bibles last for years to come.

    I have the black Ironed calfskin edition. I absolutely love it! It’s the perfect size and the font isn’t hard to read at all for a compact edition. A terrific value for this quality . I hope a compact red letter calf skin edition is released soon!

    A truly great compact bible. Print is bold and very readable despite the smaller font size. The black ironed calfskin is soft and becomes very supple with use.

    This Bible is great! I have had the purple faux leather combo for 6 months now and the leather just becomes softer with every use and still in great condition. If I didn’t know the difference between the leathers you would never be able to guess that it is a faux purple leather. I highly recommend this Bible and anything from CBP!

    These are beautiful bibles–I have both an iron calfskin and a calfskin/faux leather combo. They are a pleasure to hold and to read. Although compact, the print is just amazingly clear and easy to read. There are nice center column references and a wonderful concordance/dictionary, as well as colorful maps with index. This is fast becoming my favorite bible.

    Absolutely amazing Bible for the price. Its a nice size compact, the print is bold and readable even at the compact size. The leather is soft and flexible. You will have a hard time finding another KJB with as nice a piece of leather as CBP uses. THEY USE THE BEST LEATHER! I would definitely recommended this Bible and any other Bible CBP has to offer.

  14. Rated 5 out of 5


    I purchased this in the ironed calfskin and it is a beautiful compact Bible. Especially like that CBP chose the Cambridge text which features the Bold Figure Reference system as it removes the letters and numbers from the text facilitating readability. The dictionary is another plus as it contains many informative articles. The price makes this Bible a great value.
