    The Newberry Reference Bible (Previously known as Englishman's Bible) is something I have recently stumbled upon.

    Does anyone else have any experience with this? It seems like a great tool for studying the scriptures:

    Some features I thought that were interesting and valuable:

    Using a unique systems of symbols and signs, Thomas Newberry brings the original Hebrew and Greek text to life on every page. The print size is regular and each page contains just one column of text.

    tables of weights, measures and coins, as well as a chart of Greek prepositions

    A lower hyphen_ connecting several English words together which in the original languages are but one

    Parallel passages always noted in the margin

    signs indication Greek Hebrew participles, articles, numbers, emphatic pronouns, prepositions, tenses and moods.

    I am completely unfamiliar with it, but it looks intriguing.

    *Does it reference Alexandrian manuscripts as well or only Byzantine? It looks like it is KJV, so i am curious to what manuscripts it looks at

    Not sure to be honest.

    I think it has critical notes and some MSS evidence on the bottom so it probably references some Alexandrian manuscripts sadly. I have been trying to confirm whether or not grammatical codes /symbols made to the words in the text are based on the TR or the critical text.

    Can you post an image or two? I tried google images, but couldn't find anything clear enough.

    Jordan, I had not heard of it until you mentioned it here. Since you mentioned it, I looked and found this interesting piece on Thomas Newberry.

    From the information in the link in post #7, this looks like a valuable one-volume resource for the English Bible only preacher.
