DESCRIPTION of the PRINTED EDITIONS AVAILABLE

All of our Bibles have been proudly developed and printed in the U.S.A. While it means a higher cost for us to absorb (as we have not passed that cost along to you), we have purposefully priced each edition below comparable market rates, expressly to make the cost of The Founders’ Bible readily accessible to all. We’re confident that anyone examining it will easily recognize the incredible value of what is a beautifully designed and invaluable resource. That’s the impression we wanted to leave upon everyone who receives a copy – that it would quickly become something they treasured. The mission behind this project has been far more important than any profitability in time it might yield. In the spirit of A Field of Dreams, we have plowed our field under, believing if we would help build it (His house which is His people), He will come!

Hardcover Edition – 2nd Edition

The Founders’ Bible Hardcover edition is a masterpiece in the art of bookbinding. For a 2312-page Bible, in order to ensure proper adhesion of all the signatures and maximize durability, we chose the highest quality bookbinding process on the market today, featuring a resin-bonded, PUR (Polyurethane Reactive) adhesive—“the” most durable bookbinding adhesive available. Without getting too technical, a special clay coating is applied to the paper, enabling the PUR to fully wick into the paper fibers themselves, running the full length of the signature spine. Once cured, the process forms an impenetrable bond. While Smyth sewn signatures have been a high quality industry standard for years, four minimal stitch points in a Bible of this volume would likely weaken over time and with use the paper will begin tear at those stitch points. With the PUR method, that will never happen; your Founders’ Bible will remain rock solid in its binding, and has the added benefit of allowing for a “lay flat” capacity when reading. The Hardcover features the same high quality Bible paper as the leather editions, and along with its matching protective dust jacket displays the beautiful commissioned artwork on the cover, both of which boast a premium “soft touch” coating that feels fantastic in your hands. Each copy comes individually shrink-wrapped.

NEW SECOND EDITION has expanded to include our Founding Documents: The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and the Bill of Rights & Amendments. Also included is a beautifully illustrated, 4-color presentation front matter section for recording your Ancestors of Interest, Your Family both Father’s and Mother’s lineage, Significant Family events, and Your Spiritual Journey. We also included a new article, Freedom Is A Fragile Thing and a revised and updated Timeline of American History.

Leather-Soft 2nd Edition

While The Founders’ Bible Leather-Soft 2nd Edition is synthetic leather, the deep, rich Chestnut brown binding has all the look and feel of its genuine leather counterpart. It’s nearly as durable, but easier on a family’s budget. With beautiful rounded corners, distinctive, hand-crafted perimeter stitching, and a wonderfully textured, burnished imprint on the cover and spine, the Leather-Soft edition is a little more casual in appearance without the more formal gold gilding, but you will be captivated by how marvelous it feels. This Bible is a treasure to hold. Each copy comes individually shrink-wrapped in an exceptional O-band that captures the beauty of the commissioned cover artwork.

Heirloom Edition

While this premium edition has all the bells and whistles, perhaps its most important feature is that it preserves for all time America’s Founding Documents by including the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights and subsequent amendments. Having all of this in one single resource alongside the Bible that inspired such wisdom from the Founders makes the Founders’ Bible Heirloom Edition the “ultimate resource.” The Heirloom edition showcases a richly-tanned, deep-cinnamon brown Lux Leather binding. The feel is amazing; it’s extremely durable, with beautiful rounded corners, handcrafted gold foil textured imprints on both the cover and spine, which feature distinctive debossing, genuine perimeter hand-stitching, and the more formal gold gilded edging. The Heirloom Edition will be a cherished family treasure for generations. Each copy come individually shrink-wrapped in an exquisite presentation slipcase that captures the beauty of the commissioned cover artwork and also provides a safe resting place for your Bible when not in use.
