(Update) Introducing the Single Column Heritage Bible (with a giveaway!)

Have you tried reading a single column Bible yet?

Single column typesettings are increasingly popular as many readers find the one column less distracting, making it easier to focus on the Bible text. Mark Bertrand, prominent Bible design blogger, has explained his preferences for the single column settings.

Published this past summer, the ESV Single Column Heritage Bible is a simple but well designed Bible specifically suited for extended reading. It’s the newest addition to our growing line of single column Bibles, which includes the Single Column Legacy Bible and Personal Size Reference Bible.
