Service is great and quick. I did priority mail and received Bible in 2 days. Very nice goatskin leather. I would rate this Bible a 4.5 star. Reason is I do not think the Amethyst color compliments well with the red verse numbers and red lettering. I believe for this edition all black lettering would compliment more well. I had bought the red edition and it looked great. Not sure on the blue edition. Blue and red usually do go well. When you open this Bible the Amethyst color just pops out at you, very nice. Overall it’s a very nice bible and well spent. I would love to see a larger print edition and a possible verse by verse format on the NKJV Bible. Hopefully Humble Lamb will consider it in the works. I love the drawing to in this bible it makes me feel more connected to what I’m reading. I’m thinking about getting also there KJV to when it comes out. These bibles are well crafted and at a reasonable price that’s why I keep buying there Bibles.
This Bible is a tremendous gift from the Lord. Thankful that the leaders of this ministry were obedient to the Lord and started this. As a lover of the Word, I thoroughly enjoy reading God’s Word already and this Bible makes it even more enjoyable. The lettering, the set up, and the construction truly emanates beauty. If you have the ability to get one, get it and don’t second guess yourself for it!
This s the best bible I own, best quality you could ask for. Love how easy it reads. Everyone that has seen it wants one.
The wait was well worth it! This Bible is a work of art, from amazing cover to the amethyst art guilding, this Bible hits a home run! The workmanship on this Humble Lamb Bible is perfect for the real gem within the Holy Scriptures!
This is the most beautifully bound personal Bible I have ever seen. The goatskin cover is very supple and soft to the touch. The page edges turn from gold to amethyst when this Bible is opened. Amethyst is a royal color befitting God’s Holy Word. The center column text is easy to read. I love reading the Bible, no matter how It is bound, but this Humble Lamb offering is a true blessing and a personal treasure.
We've been very careful in choosing the best binding methods for the Humble Lamb Bibles. Each Bible has been individually handcrafted to meet the highest standards of quality.
We have included an international lifetime warranty on manufacturer's defects with each purchase. Learn more here.
These Bibles are available in three distinct colors: Amethyst, Cardinal Red, and Royal Blue. The color relates to the art-gilt and ribbon variation. Each Bible contains three 10mm ribbons.
A few centuries ago, books were only for the aristocrats, and every well-crafted book had raised hubs or "ribs". The raised hubs in our Bibles will not only feel great in the hand but will also give your Bible a classy, clean look.
A red, blue, or purple decorative finish was added to the page edges, where dye and gilt foil combine to add richness and luster to the finished Bible.
A rare but highly durable method of binding is used in the Humble Lamb Bible. First, edge-lined binding does not use a book board between the lining and the cover. The two layers are full-grain Goatskin leather for the cover and full-grain calfskin leather. Second, there is a perimeter stitching that prevents the liner from separating from the cover over time. There is also a golden filigree along the edge of the liner.
The book block is Smyth-sewn, a method that involves sewing through the folds of the individual, collated signatures. Not only does this method give great durability to the book block, but it also allows your Humble Lamb Bible to open flat from Genesis to Revelation.
The paper chosen is 30 GSM high-opacity Bible paper. The high opacity helps with the ghosting/see-through of the ink. By choosing 30 gsm Bible paper it allowed us to fit 1,800 pages in a 1.5 inch thick Bible.
The typical Bible that you buy at your local store is inscribed "The Holy Bible". Not only did we want to create something different, but we wanted to create a sense of reverence appropriate for the powerful message that you will hold in your hands. From the detailed craftsmanship to the layout, we wanted you to know that you aren't holding just any book. You will be holding the sacred "Word of God".
The layout and design was created by our Humble Lamb team. There are two key elements to the design of "The Word of God". It will be easy-to-read with a beautiful design, while including reference notes and cross-references that are conducive to your in-depth studies.
Designing the Humble Lamb Bible was no easy task. It was designed with mathematical precision and beauty through the use of the Fibonacci Sequence. The Fibonacci Sequence reveals a mathematical relationship found throughout nature called the Golden Ratio. This ratio is the basis for the precise geometric balance and harmony of our Bible. Based on these timeless design principles, the Humble Lamb Bible is beautiful and pleasing to the eye.
Many people do not think of how words are arranged on the page but this is important for visual aesthetics. 45-75 characters per line is the perfect range for readability. We have designed the Bible so that our text meets this criterion, ensuring an enjoyable study and reading experience, even for longer periods of time.
The cross-references are accented in deep red and have been placed beside the verse that they correspond with for ease of use.
The Humble Lamb Word of God is complemented by the artwork of Gustave Dore. His illustrations accompany the appropriate text and help bring the story to life.
"Gustave Dore was a prolific engraver, artist, illustrator, and sculptor, working primarily as a wood and steel engraver. He produced over 100,000 sketches in his lifetime, and lived to be 50 years old, averaging 6 sketches per day for each day he lived. Even though he was an untrained, self-taught artist, who never used a live model, and who could not sketch from nature, his work is considered some of the most important in the entire engraving art world (Gustave Dore)."
"As a child, young Dore was an avid artist and earned his way as an illustrator in a Paris bookshop, publishing his first drawings when he was 15 years old. His young age and great talent drew much attention, which led to newspaper and journal articles written about the “child illustrator,” and generated further interest in the artist. As an illustrator, Dore created engravings for the books of Balzac, Rabelais, Milton, Dante, Edgar Allen Poe, and Lord Byron. He was commissioned to illustrate a version of the English Bible, which was extremely popular, allowing for the foundation of his own gallery, the Dore Gallery (Gustave Dore)."

When creating the Humble Lamb Bibles, we chose only top quality leather to protect and encase your Bible. For the outside cover, we have chosen full-grain Goatskin leather. Full-grain goatskin leather is considered, by many, to be the best leather for Bibles, without getting into exotics. Although more expensive, it is an essential part of Humble Lamb's Bibles.
Full Grain leather comes from the top layer of the hide which has ALL of the grain, therefore, FULL grain. The surface of the full-grain leather becomes more burnished and beautified with continued use.
We also gave much attention and care to the materials chosen for the interior liner. Although most Bibles often overlook this very important element of the Bible, we made sure to outfit it with a premium full-grain Calfskin leather.
Due to the natural variation in animal hide, no one cover is the same. The uniqueness of the hide makes sure that you have an exclusive and one-of-a-kind Bible.
This double-leathered masterpiece is sure to be your companion for many years to come.
