I had the pleasure of hanging out with Scott Kay while I was in Georgia back in July, and now he's sent in a photo of his stack of Bibles. It turns out we have the same two Nelson Signatures -- a black KJV and a tan NKJV. This inspires me to dig them out and write a piece about them. Here's an annotated run-down of what's in Scott's photo:ESV Compact Thinline in burgundy bonded leather - for various pastoral duties NKJV Pocket Bible in burgundy bonded leather - for various pastoral duties (retired - it got rained on on a hiking trip) KJV Cambridge Pitt Minion in brown Berkshire leather - given to me in 1987 and used throughout college to carry to class and on evangelism outreach events KJV Cambridge Cameo in black Calfskin - exactly matches the layout of my wide-margin below, but with out the wide margins. UBS4 Greek New Testament in tan Calfskin - I had this bound by LeatherBibles.com and it looks, feels, and uses great! NKJV Nelson Signature Series Thinline in tan Calfskin - this is my everyday use and pulpit Bible. KJV Nelson Signature Series Thinline in black Calfskin - I used this for everyday and preaching before I got the NKJV Nelson. KJV Cambridge Wide Margin in Berkshire leather - this is the original cover from 1985 which I have had re-attached 3 or 4 times (and it has separated again). This was my everyday use and preaching Bible from 1985 to 2005. Tons of notes in the margins. NASB Thinline in black bonded leather - this was a gift at Seminary graduation from Lockman NASB Wide Margin in black bonded leather. ESV Single Column Reference in black premium Calfskin leather - a kind gift from a friend in 2007, which I am using increasingly for daily and pulpit use. Thanks for sharing, Scott!
