Holman just released a Limited Edition Ministers Bible HCSB, in a fine soft, supple cowhide leather bible. The retail price for this gem is $150.00, if it is anything similar to their Legacy Bible (the nice one, not the original one that was made out of some stiff cheap leather) then it will be a very nice one to have. This is a wide margin single column black letter edition and it appears that they have added a few more minister helps as well.
If I understand the advertising correctly the leather bible cover is made by Biblias Abba, they produce some of the best leather bibles so you can be sure this is a fine quality product. By the way they will also rebound your favorite bible as well.
I own the prior edition which I really like to read. The fonts are excellent, the spread between the text is nice, and the leather is a good cowhide, but not soft or supple, or flexible in anyway but it is a nice grain matte finish. I have often thought of sending this one out and having it rebound. I used mine the other day when I had to speak at a funeral. You can read a bit more about it here.
I don’t know if it contains the 2nd Edition or not, if it did that would be awesome. I have an email out to Jim Baird (B&H Academic – Vice President of Marketing & Sales) asking him to verify.
The Limited Edition Ministers Bible is still the first edition (i.e. not HCSB 2nd edition)
