Schuyler Caxton NLT

The curtain is about to be pulled back on Schuyler's latest offering, the Caxton NLT. The top-line Bible publisher has started taking pre-orders for this edition of the NLT.

The Caxton line is a new series in Schuyler's collection. The announced specs aptly demonstrate that the publisher shows no signs of skimping on quality. Make no mistake, this is another impressive entry in Schuyler's formidable catalog.

The Caxton NLT is in single column format and I cannot complement the publisher enough for having made that editorial decision. Single column makes the text imminently more engaging and eliminates the risk of a laborious reading experience - that is, the "Bible fatigue" often induced by the traditional two column format.

You can find a sample of the interior here.

Again, this is an optimal layout for the Biblical text. Crisp font and a clearly organized the page; slap a critical apparatus on there and you'll have a Bible that goes toe-to-toe with Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft's Novum Testamentum Graece.

I've written about Schuyler's Quentel NASB elsewhere. Thus far, my experience of Schuyler is that one would do well to "believe the hype" as it were. Schuyler developed a rock solid reputation in a relatively short period of time. The Caxton NLT looks more than prepared to keep said reputation in place.
