How does it compare to the Cambridge Bibles?
I’m shopping for my lifetime Bible. I’m agonizing between this one and Cambridge’s goatskin editions. Does anyone with an In-Touch Wide-Margin NASB also own a Cambridge Wide-Margin Bible (any translation) that they can compare it to for me? Thanks.

I have both and my hands-down preference is the In-Touch Wide Margin calfskin edition. The print is larger and the margins have plenty of space for notes. Excellent paper quality and extra blank pages in front and in back. The calfskin is gorgeous and supple. I have several study bibles, some genuine leather, some pigskin and some calfskin. This is absolutely my favorite!

Thank you, KRW! I just came back from picking up my new NASB burgundy calfskin from the CBD warehouse. It is a world of difference from Bibles I have bought previously! I would have preferred a Bible with a single column and paragraph format, but what pushed me toward buying this one was its utter absence of cross-references and notes to distract firsthand, inductive study of the Word of Life (Acts 17:11). I cannot wait to spend my life knowing my God even deeper through its pages! Thank you for the recommendation!

This Bible is AWESOME!!! I had used a Thompson Chain Reference for years and it literally fell apart, so I needed a new Bible and this one is perfect for me. I have never felt the Cambridge Goatskin but this Bible is the softest I have ever felt and very well "put together". It has plenty of room in the margins for notes and has absolutely no references or study notes to be distracted from God's Word. The inside margin is a little smaller than the outside but there is still plenty of room. The pages are thicker than a standard bible and bleed through is limited (I use pencil so there is zero for me), with the thicker pages also comes what I consider easier to read words; the letters and words appear to stand out more than in other Bibles. There are two ribbons for marking passages and other than 1 page that has a letter from Dr. Charles Stanley there is nothing to label this Bible denominational. I would highly recommend it!

The NASB In-Touch Bible has 10 point print, whereas the Cambridge Bible has 7 point. The paper in the two Bibles is very similar in thickness and both Bibles have the highest quality sewn bindings. The Cambridge Goatskin is a better quality, soft genuine leather, which is slightly firmer than the leather on the NASB. The Cambridge Bible is slightly thinner due to smaller print and will have an artisan gilding (red - gold). The NASB has bright gold gilding and a velvet case.
