More About Cambridge Bible

Baker Publishing Group Baker Publishing Group is an Evangelical Christian book publisher based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It has six main divisions: Bethany House, Revell, Baker Books, Baker Academic, Chosen and Brazos Press.

The company was founded in 1939, by Herman Baker. The company has published of Christian books that discuss many issues, from family life to theology, within a broadly evangelical framework. Baker publishes books and ministry resources for pastors and church leaders, concentrating on topics such as preaching, worship, pastoral ministries, counseling and leadership. Baker also publishes for lay Christians on topics such as discipleship, spirituality, encouragement, relationships, marriage, parenting and the intersection of Christianity and culture.

Bethany House - has been publishing high quality books for more than 50 years, and has over 1,100 titles spanning nearly every reading category. Recognized as the pioneer and leader in Christian fiction, we publish many of the top names in historical and contemporary romance, Amish and Mennonite fiction, romantic suspense, and many other fiction subgenres. Our nonfiction encompasses a variety of subjects, including Christian living, family resources, theology, heaven, and many more. Offering inspiration and encouragement to readers through story and spiritual insight, Bethany House titles frequently appear on Christian bestseller lists.

Revell - began over 125 years ago when D. L. Moody and his brother-in-law Fleming H. Revell saw the need for practical books that would help bring the Christian faith to everyday life. From there, Fleming H. Revell Publishing developed consistently solid lists that included many notable Christian writers over the years. This same vision for books that are both inspirational and practical continues to motivate the Revell publishing group today. Whether publishing fiction, Christian living, self-help, marriage, family, or youth books, each Revell publication reflects relevance, integrity, and excellence.

Baker Books - has a vision for building up the body of Christ through books that are relevant, intelligent, and engaging. We publish titles for lay Christians on topics such as discipleship, spirituality, encouragement, relationships, marriage, parenting, and the intersection of Christianity and culture. We also publish books and ministry resources for pastors and church leaders, concentrating on topics such as preaching, worship, pastoral ministries, counseling, and leadership.

Baker Academic - serves the academy and the church by publishing works that further the pursuit of knowledge and understanding within the context of Christian faith. Building on our Reformed and evangelical heritage, we connect authors and readers across the broader academic community by publishing books that reflect historic Christianity and its contemporary expressions. Our authors are scholars who are leaders in their fields, write irenically, and display a healthy respect for other perspectives and traditions. Our goal is to publish books that are notable for their inherent quality and deemed essential reading by students and scholars.

Ever since the 1971 publication of The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom, Chosen Books has been publishing powerful books that help millions to live the Spirit-filled life. Attracting evangelicals and charismatics, professionals and laypersons, books published by Chosen help believers to better know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, to pray about the concerns that are on God's heart, to be empowered by his Spirit for ministry, to fulfill the Great Commission, and to transform their communities and their world. Several hundred titles over more than thirty years, from Charles Colson's Born Again to Cindy Jacobs' Possessing the Gates of the Enemy, reflect the publishing goal of Chosen Books: to publish well-crafted books that recognize the gifts and ministry of the Holy Spirit and help readers live more empowered and effective lives for Jesus Christ. Challenged by the written word, these hungry readers are joining the incredible adventure of what God is doing in the world.

Brazos Press - fosters the renewal of classical, orthodox Christianity by publishing thoughtful, theologically grounded books on subjects of importance to the church and the world. We serve authors and readers from all major streams of the historic Christian tradition, recognizing that the renewal of Christian orthodoxy transcends many traditional boundary lines and polarities.

Since July of 1990, Baker Publishing Group has been proud to be the North American distributor for Cambridge University Press Bibles. We take great pride in offering the world's finest Bibles to its customers. Each Bible is treated with the same traditional care and devotion to craftsmanship as was Cambridge's first Bible in 1591. In an age of mass production and quick turnover, Baker believes that readers still want and appreciate the fine quality Bibles that Cambridge offers.

The perfect Bible for me!  Feb 25, 2010
Wow, I think I've found the perfect Bible for me. Last week, I ordered the Cambridge NLT Pitt Minion from this site, and received it the very next day.

I have to admit, I was slightly taken aback at first by the small print on the inside - but, within a day of reading and carrying the Bible around with me, my eyes had totally adjusted. In fact, now the print in my other Bibles seems to be too big!

Several things work together to make this the perfect Bible for me. First, I love the fact that, even though it's small, Cambridge placed two ribbon markers in it.

Also, it's the perfect size to be my "take everywhere" Bible. And, since I received the Bible, that's exactly what I've done.

The goatskin leather is very soft, yet still firm (for those of you well versed in Bible covers and binding, you'll know exactly what I mean). The leather has continued to soften since I received it, too.

The Smyth-sewn binding is extremely durable, and will last for a long, long time. This is a big plus for me, because I tend to wear out my "carry-everywhere" Bibles very quickly.

Also, because of the binding, this Bible opens flat right out of the box.

Once again, when you order the Bible, your first reaction to the small print (the Bible lists it as 6.75 font) might be to put it back in the box and return it. But please, listen up, give your eyes a few days to adjust. You'll be very glad that you did! I was actually able to take this Bible to the pulpit with me on Sunday and read from it. The font is very crisp and clear, and the paper is high-quality "India" paper. As long as you aren't in very dim lighting, the text in this Bible will be easier to read than even some 8+ font Bibles.

Worth every penny  Feb 16, 2010
This is an excellent bible and I am very impressed. True, the text is small but it is in a very clear and easy to read typeface. Many times, smaller text is wearying but not with this. It's a joy to read and superbly bound, worthy of the Cambridge name. I've been wanting a compact bible in the NLT for some time and to be able to own a Cambridge is a real plus. The Pitt Minion is worth every penny.
 
Classic and classy!  Feb 12, 2010
I was a bit hesitant at first to buy this product because of the small font. After reading through Genesis and Exodus in this Bible I have been amazed at just how readable this font is. It is small, but very readable and easy on the eyes. I've even used it reading to our congregation and had no trouble seeing the font.

I love the size of this bible too. Perfect for carrying to hospitals, nursing homes, board meetings, and whatever else a minister finds himself running to. You can easily tuck it in a jacket pocket. So handy! There's now no excuse to not have a bible with you wherever you go.

As for craftsmanship this is classic and classy. Classic in that it looks like bibles of old (think an old KJV). Classy in that it is put together well. Bible will last longer than you. I ordered the brown goatskin and love the leather and how it feels in my hand. This is well worth your money. It's about time we see some high-end NLTs. Great translation and great bible. A big "thank you" to the folks at Cambridge for adding this product to their line.
 
The perfect compliment to the New Living Translation  Nov 4, 2009
People willingly spend hundreds of dollars on console gaming systems, or computers, or even new church clothes, but generally look for the best `deal' on the bible. While this bible is highly priced (most over $100 - but in no way overpriced), the value, the longevity, the quality of it, will last far long than some of those things you have have spent 10 times as much on. If you value the bible, then this is a bible which will hold its value for a long time.

I currently have several Cambridge bibles in my collection, all of them King James. (One includes the Apocrypha, which was printed in many of the early KJVs.) My oldest daughter has a Cambridge bible, circa 1950's/1960's which is still in use, in great shape, and dearly loved. My wife has a white leather bible, just a few years old, and it still retains it's `newness' feel. Further, after having given away a fine wide-margin Cambridge, my two KJV Cambridges, both black calfskin remain a center point for my library, and my church use (if I am not using one of my NLT's). You simply cannot go wrong with a Cambridge bible.

The printing in the Pitt Minion is small (typeface is 6.75 point), and might be troublesome for some eyes; however, the Pitt Minion is geared to be compact, but sturdy. While the typeface is smaller than what some might expect, the printing is clear making it easier to read than expected. It is a red-lettered edition, but unlike other red-lettered bibles, has quality dark ink which is consistent throughout. The goatskin leather provides suppleness, and the sewn-binding means that it will lay flat on it's back. The bible is printed on India paper, with gilded edges, which may hinder normal notations made by the user, but they do have special pens for this type of paper. Further, this NLT, like the recent Mosaic, is center-column reference, making it a traditional reference bible. The Pitt Minion NLT also features the standard maps (15 pages) and the 100 plus page dictionary/concordance.

The beauty of any Cambridge is the historical and value-rich feel. This bible can be handled with ease by anyone. Simply, for value, the Cambridge cannot be beat; for readability the NLT cannot be beat. When you bring both together, you have a bible worth more, and with a long lasting value, than many on the marker today. This Pitt Minion is the New Living Translation, providing a quality bible translation in clear language. For those who want a quality bible which will last for generations, go with the Cambridge. You will not be disappointed.
 
Great "Thought-For-Thought" Bible  Oct 9, 2009
Good thought for thought (best used as a supplement or commentary) that said, the NLT is the pick! I really enjoy how fresh it's readings are! This is a VERY nice edition, see my review on the ESV Cambridge "Brown" text aside, the quality is much the same, which is to say very high! PAX EST BONUM
