Q:  What is the Pure Cambridge Edition (PCE) text or the 1900 edition Cambridge?
A:  These are both the same text and they are also known as the Standard text. It is an out-of-print Cambridge text, determined to be ‘pure\’ by Mr. Verschuur, a young and ambitious Pentecostal man from Australia. His research is fairly exhaustive, and he is to be commended for it. But his conclusions, that the Cambridge text he uses is in all points superior to other Cambridge texts, cannot be defended, at every point. On these points he relies on his ‘Pentecostal’ experiences to defend them, as described in his book, “Guide to the Pure Cambridge Edition of the King James Bible.”

Q:  What is the difference between Basic, Executive and Signature series of the Bibles?
A:  The only difference between each type of leather is the texture. The Basic series is Natural cowhide, which has the natural grain. The Executive series is ironed calfskin, The iron plate process smoothes out the highs and lows of the hide but does not correct the natural grain. and the Signature series is also a top grain cowhide that is not as flexible as the Executive. The Signature series is a thicker piece of leather that still has the natural grains found in the hide. Not thick like a belt, but you can tell it is a nice piece of leather.

They’re each very soft and top quality. All of our leathers are of a different quality than most Bible manufactures because of the style of binding that we do. The thinner, embossed leathers today found at the bookstore, feel like a thin piece of cardboard. Because ours are lined with imitation leather, instead of paper they are more flexible and last longer.

Our Signatures series is all made and produced in the United States of America. Our Basic and Executive leathers are imported from Mexico.

Q:  Is it the “old” or the “new” Scofield?
A:  Our Classic Bible is a reprint of the 1909, 1917 public domain Bible using C.I. Scofield’s notes.
We do not print the “New Scofield” or the “New Improved Scofield”

Q:  Are any of your Bibles the Pure Cambridge Edition (PCE) text?
A:  No. We do not carry the PCE because it lowercases the “s” in I John 5:8 and we believe, based on the context of I John 5:6, the “Spirit” should be capitalized. Please see this letter from Cambridge. For more information, please contact us.

Q:  Do you have a Large Print Bible that is smaller?
A:  When we enlarge the type size, it is not possible to produce a small book. The pages of the Bible would be too thin and it would not be possible to turn them.

Q:  Do you rebind old Bibles or can you tell me where I can get my Bible fixed?
A:  We do not rebind Bibles, but we can suggest that you call Norris Bookbinding at 888-213-2586 or e-mail them at norris@norrisbookbinding.com
