Very few people will read this blog post and buy this Bible, but not because they don't want to. Many are simply unwilling to pay upwards of $200 for a Bible.
Allan Bibles is one of the oldest Bible publishers still in existence. They produce extremely high quality Bibles (at consequently high prices) bound mostly in goat skin from their native Scotland. Known around the world for their durability, their customers tend to buy one Bible for a lifetime of preaching, teaching, and study. Though this edition is certainly not for everyone, for those looking for the most durably bound HCSB, Allan Bibles are hard to beat.
According to their website:
Robert L. Allan first opened his Bible offices at 75 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, Scotland, in 1863.
Today Allan's is still a family-owned publishing business based in Glasgow, where we specialize in producing the highest quality leather Bibles, and selling them direct to the reader.
R L Allan hold the Queen's Royal Licence under Letters Patent to publish the Authorized King James Version Bible in Scotland. Queen Elizabeth still holds the copyright to the KJV Bible in the UK.
Our exclusive Allan Bibles are printed on lightweight India paper and bound by craftsmen using traditional methods and top quality leathers.
Here is what they had to say about their Bible which uses the HCSB text:
Twenty years in the making, this reliable modern translation has found a large readership who share a high view of Scripture.
The Allan HCSB edition makes use of Holman and Broadman Press's best setting - the large print ultrathin reference edition - which combines the best of modern print technology and bibilcal scholarship with top quality India paper combined with Allan's fine leather hand-bindings.
