Schuyler’s first published Bible was a modification of an English Standard Version (ESV) Crossway typesetting. This Bible, the Schuyler ESV Credo Bible, is currently out of print, but may come back into print in 2016. The current Schuyler ESV is a classic double column format with center column cross references and footnotes along the bottom of the page. It sports a generous 9.5 font size and 32 gsm prima Bible paper for optimal legibility. All of these Schuyler ESVs have Goatskin edge-lined bindings with perimeter stitching and 3 or 4 ribbon markers. The quality printing and binding produce a Bible which lies flat out of the box and is designed to last a lifetime. Our Schuyler ESVs now come in a variety of colors – Black, Brown, Firebrick Red and Imperial Blue. All of our second generation ESV Credo Bibles have 4 ribbon markers and come with and without the ‘Holy Bible’ on the cover.
Another distinctive of this edition is that it comes with an important selection of Christian Confessions of Faith – Apostles Creed-Nicene Creed-Chalcedonian Creed-Athanasian Creed-Augsburg Confession-Articles of Religion-Westminster Standards-London Baptist Confession.

Schuyler Bibles are published in small batches of no more than 1,000 copies, and more commonly 500. This helps us to stay focused on detail and to assure that quality is never compromised. Each copy is individually hand finished. The perimeter stitching which is found on all Schuyler Bibles adds durability to the cover. Even though each Bible is a tribute to the book binder’s skill in both quality and beauty, these Bibles are designed to be used, read, studied, written in, and indeed handed down to the next generation.
