Introducing the Large Print Thinline Reference Bible

The Large Print Thinline Reference Bible is a new ESV edition that combines the benefits of a thinline Bible with those of a larger reference edition. As you can see in the following interior spread, the ESV text is printed in an easy-to-read larger type size, and is laid out in a double-column format.

The cross-references for each page are located in the bottom corner, keeping the page count to a minimum. The Large Print Thinline Reference Bible is close to an inch thin, and only .0625 inches thicker than the original ESV Thinline Bible (see pictures below for a comparison).

The Large Print Thinline Reference Bible is available in four editions (retail price listed):

TruTone, Burgundy, Celtic Cross Design (Words of Christ in red) – $54.99

TruTone, Tan/Forest, Core Design (Words of Christ in red) – $54.99

Genuine Leather, Black (Words of Christ in red) – $74.99

Top Grain Leather, Brown, (Black letter) – $139.99

  1. What are the odds of the Top Grain Leather with red letter?

  2. Jason, we don’t have immediate plans for a Top Grain Leather edition with red letters, but as we expand the line in the future that could be something we consider.

  3. Can you tell me how the paper compares to the ESV Study Bible in Trutone? Thinner or the same? Thanks.

  4. Luanne, thanks for your comment. The paper in the Study Bible is slightly more opaque than in the Large Print Thinline Reference Bible. The LPTR Bible, however, uses line-matching while the ESVSB does not. Hope that helps!
