The Word of God – Physical Form
May 26, 2017
You never actually own a Humble Lamb Bible. You merely take care of it for the next generation.
We are so confident in the quality of these heirloom Bibles that we have included an international lifetime warranty with each purchase.
The cover material is full grain Goatskin Leather, which is favored for it’s suppleness, softness, and durability.
What is Full Grain Leather?
Full Grain Leather comes from the top layer of the hide which has ALL of the grain, therefore, FULL grain. The natural surface of full grain leather becomes more burnished and beautified with continued use. It is the best leather money can buy and the only leather good enough for the Humble Lamb Bibles.
A red or blue decorative finish was added to the page edges, where dye and gilt foil combine to add richness and luster to the finished Bible.
A rare but highly durable method of binding is used in the Humble Lamb Bible. First, edge-lined binding does not use a bookboard between the lining and the cover. The two layers are full grain—Goatskin leather for the cover, and Shakira leather (cowhide) for the liner. Second, there is a perimeter stitching that prevents the liner from separating from the cover over time. There is also a golden filigree along the edge of the liner.
The book block is Smyth-sewn, a method which involves sewing through the folds of the individual, collated signatures. This allows your Humble Lamb Bible to open flat from Genesis to Revelation.

The layout was designed by our Humble Lamb team and was professionally typeset by Scribe Inc. There are two key elements to the design of “The Word of God”. It will be easy-to-read with a beautiful design, while including reference notes and cross-references that are conducive to your in-depth studies.

The cross-references are accented in deep red and have been placed beside the verse that they correspond with.

Therefore, we have set our sights on Kickstarter. For those new to the Internet, Kickstarter is an all or nothing fundraising platform, through here you will be able to pre-order the Humble Lamb Bible. If we don’t reach our goal, none of our supportive, dedicated backers will be charged but the world will miss out on an amazing Bible. So how will we reach our goal? By selling 335 Bibles. That’s it.
With only 335 pre-orders, each one of you can have your own copy of the Humble Lamb Bible. So invite your friends, family, and acquaintances to support us, and soon you will have your very own, special edition, Word of God.
Sincerely, The Humble Lamb team.
