|Shocking Quality Decline Jul 14, 2006|
|I very sadly must add the name of 'Kirkbride' to such names as Thomas Nelson, World, Crossway, and a few others, who produce garbage Bibles. Kirkbride no longer produces the 'Deluxe Genuine Leather' editions, which was a soft nice cowhide that retailed for $89; what is now called their 'genuine leather' edition is this pebble-grained(Levant)cheap sheepskin-of-sorts, that is very nasty to hold in the hand. That, believe it or not, retails for $84 !!!! The paper is not as good as before. I have always hated the red-letter edition Bibles, but the red they now use is light and even harder to read. They have also come out with some awful rubber-like material in Ivory and Grey, and the spines collapse as soon as you open the Bibles. What junk. The interior features of the Thompson are still the same; however, the quality is el stinko. The most insulting thing is that, they are still charging the same outrageous prices for this borax. Kirkbride is a small company based in Indianapolis, and this is all they do. I guess they are really cutting costs---and quality. I e-mailed Kirkbride about their products' quality---and did not get an answer. Want quality Bibles? Oxford, Cambridge, Foundation Publications, Allen of Glasgow. Sorry, Kirkbride---you're no longer on my list.|
|Was dissapointed too Jul 9, 2006|
|Had to agree with other reviewers on the quality of current Thompson bibles. I compared my 15 year old thompson to a new version and I was disapointed. The leather cover was ok but the paper quality STINKS. The words of Christ are not as read as my old one and the paper is almost too thin and brittle. I dont know what happened but I guess they want to cut costs. I am going to buy an oxford bible insteasd|
|Excellent Study Bible! Feb 10, 2006|
|This is my 2nd Thompson Chain Reference Bible.|
My wife gave me my first one 22 years ago as a gift. It was the highest quality leather version available at the time. As a minister, I've found this study Bible to be priceless with all its features. Plus, the quality construction of a Thompson Bile by the Kirbride people is second to none. After 22 years of use, the Bible's contruction has held up. It looks only "slightly" worn compare to some of my other Bible which show signs of wear. The Kirbribe Thompson's Chain Ref. Bible is one of the best as for as construction quality and content quality. I highly recommend it!

|BUYER BEWARE!!! Jan 25, 2006|
|I must warn you all that Kirkbride is producing very low quality Bibles these days. I bought a Thompson KJV Genuine Leather about 6 years ago. It was printed on very nice quality Bible paper, creamy white with the words in Christ in a very beautiful RED. The paper held up to lots of wear and tear and still was in good shape. It was a pleasure to own |
But what happened? The new Thompson Bibles are printed on very very cheap paper that is of such poor quality that the letters and words on the other side of the page shows through. I can feel the paper of the new Thompsons and compare it with my older edition Thompson and I was very unhappy to learn I was scammed. Also the words of Christ in red are in such a light shade that I found it hard to read - gone are the deep red print of yesteryear.
I do not know what prompted the Kirkbride people to this. Maybe they want to get the more profit from thier Bibles and cut corners on paper quality. They are cheating the public by selling very shoddy Bibles and still charging thier high prices.
Dont make the mistake I did (...)for a lousy version of a former great study Bible. I am sorry a classic Study Bible fell victim to corporate GREED.

The Kirkbride Bible Company has produced a scolary high quality bible with a easy to use chain reference system . You will not be dissapointed .|
