    I have been reading like crazy and searching for the Bible I want, used or new, in my price range but so far to no avail.
    I just got a Crossway Large Print Thinline from Barnes and Noble which has a font of 10.5. I really hate to admit it, but I can't see the print without straining (Senior guy here).
    Can anyone recommend a good source for a new or used Bible under $100.00 with the following traits:
    1] 12 - 14 size font
    2] Reference or Paragraph format with some margin of blank space on the outer edge of the pages
    3] Fairly heavy paper to avoid bleed through when underlining with a Pigma Micron pen (super fine point)
    4] Leather -- genuine leather, not imitation
    5] Fairly floppy feel to it

    If money were no object I would have more choices,especially if font size were not a problem.

    Thanks much for any suggestions.

    In Christ,

    This may not be your thing, but have you looked into getting a Kindle? The ESV Bible is free and you can make the font as big as you want.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I actually do have a Kindle, but for some reason I tend to like the old school paper bibles the best.

    Is the ESV your choice of translation? If so, this is your only option in a 14-point font. Various covers available.

    The larger the font size, the less white space on the page. I have the above Bible, but don't care for it. I have an NKJV and a NASB, both in 14-point. Both are my preferred translations, in that order. The NASB is in verse-by-verse format and published by Lockman in genuine leather. The NKJV is published by Holman in double column paragraph format.

    So far I have just recently looked at a number of translations and like the ESV a lot. Not too familiar with NASB yet. My old standard is the KJV but also want a more modern language Translation. I want a more literal translation.
    Thanks much for the input.

    I can't help you with the ESV, as I don't think anything exists with those specs. Do you have a large font KJV? make some nice giant print KJVs. I purchased a few of their Bibles and they are all very good for the money.

    Here is their giant print, unfortunately not much for margins to write in:


    Their large print notetakers have massive margins, but it is only 11 point font.

    Sorry I couldn't be a help with the ESV.

    The Trinitarian Bible Society publishes large print bibles, 13 to 19 font size, but not with leather covers.

    Thanks. I didn't know they had anything except the KJV.
