The Ultimate Preaching Bible: What People Are Saying

Jan 30, 2019 |

While it might not be something that most of us in the pews realize, there are specific layout and formatting needs in a Bible that can really help a pastor with sermon delivery.

Why did we design the Preaching Bible?

 

References and the biblical text must be easy to locate. The paper quality and line-matching must be optimal for reading. Even the weight and flexibility of the bindings can play a huge role in presentation.

Having the right Bible in the pulpit each week is a big deal.

 

Every detail of Thomas Nelson’s Preaching Bible is tailor-made with preaching in mind. With features crowdsourced from actual pastors, a flexible calfskin cover, and elegant layout, this Bible is the ideal choice for those who have been called to the sacred task of preaching the Word.

Featuring:
• Verse-by-verse layout for easy navigation
• Thomas Nelson’s exclusive Comfort Print® fonts
• Premium high-contrast Bible paper
• Ultra-flexible calfskin binding and durable edge-lined construction
• 3 satin ribbon markers
• 11.5-point print size

What Are People Saying About the Preaching Bible?

Check out the feedback from actual customers!

“The paper is superb and the 11.5 font is perfect for this kind of Bible. It’s well made with the Smythe binding, and the calfskin has the right thickness. It’s my everyday Bible and what I use in my preaching every Sunday. A home run for Nelson… Get this Bible, you won’t be disappointed.” – James H.

“The Preaching Bible is an excellent design for use in the pulpit and for study. The size and darkness of the typeface, line-width, and thickness and opacity of the paper create a setting that’s a joy to read and use. I love the blue highlights. I’ve used a lot of Bibles in the pulpit and the Preaching Bible is easily one of the best.” – Randy Brown, BibleBuyingGuide.com

“Actually, this Sunday was the first Sunday I preached with the Preaching Bible, and as I suspected, the paper quality and size and readability of the font made it super easy.” – Mark T.

“Don’t let the name fool you… It is not just good for preachers but for teachers, expositors, and even lay people. The layout is superb for readability and finding verses. With it being line-matched on beautiful paper, I can assure you that you will be hard pressed to find a better Bible for your studies.” – Casey F.

“An awesome Bible with 11.5 font and great paper that is readable even in low light situations without straining the eyes. I’m not a preacher but it is now my bedside Bible to use when the eyes are at their weakest, when tired, or just waking up.”  – Nikki B.

“This is the verse by verse Bible that you have been looking for. Excellent paper, sewn binding, great leather, easy on the eyes, and the reference and notes are the bottom. If you want a Bible that will last you for years and years to come… the Preaching Bible is it! For Pastors, teachers or just a student of the Word, you can’t go wrong.” – Kevin G.

    Hello.
    I love to study, read and research through the Holy Bible. My Birthday was on February 9th. I would love to have 2 NKJV Black Clafskin, one for me and one to give as a gift. It looks really cool. I also like to share/ teach and preach the word of God everywhere I go.

  13. Jim Nelson says:

    Thinking of searching for a new Bible. I’m a pastor but need large print and prefer red letter addition. Is this Bible something that would fit my needs. KJV Does Lifeway or Mardels have this in stores to look at?

    1. John at Thomas Nelson Bibles says:

      Hi Jim. The Preaching Bible has a 11.5-point print size which is avg for large print Bibles. It is not red letter. Most Christian retail bookstores carry both the NKJV and KJV Preaching Bible. It would be best to call your local Lifeway and Mardel. You can also find the Preaching Bible at Amazon and ChristianBook.com.

  14. Robert L. Mota says:

    I would love to hold and read this bible. I’ve had my bible for 42 years now and I have read it from cover to cover many many times . It is beautiful and now it is time to past it on to one of our 7 children. Please consider me as one to receive it. Blessing to y’all, Chaplain Robert L. Mota

    As a pastor I am using the same volume I have used for over thirty years. I think it’s time to use a new one. I would love to try this in New King James. It will be put to great use and recommend to fellow pastors

  18. Jim Collier says:

    What is the price
