More About Baker Publishing Group

Baker Publishing Group Baker Publishing Group is an Evangelical Christian book publisher based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It has six main divisions: Bethany House, Revell, Baker Books, Baker Academic, Chosen and Brazos Press.

The company was founded in 1939, by Herman Baker. The company has published of Christian books that discuss many issues, from family life to theology, within a broadly evangelical framework. Baker publishes books and ministry resources for pastors and church leaders, concentrating on topics such as preaching, worship, pastoral ministries, counseling and leadership. Baker also publishes for lay Christians on topics such as discipleship, spirituality, encouragement, relationships, marriage, parenting and the intersection of Christianity and culture.

Bethany House - has been publishing high quality books for more than 50 years, and has over 1,100 titles spanning nearly every reading category. Recognized as the pioneer and leader in Christian fiction, we publish many of the top names in historical and contemporary romance, Amish and Mennonite fiction, romantic suspense, and many other fiction subgenres. Our nonfiction encompasses a variety of subjects, including Christian living, family resources, theology, heaven, and many more. Offering inspiration and encouragement to readers through story and spiritual insight, Bethany House titles frequently appear on Christian bestseller lists.

Revell - began over 125 years ago when D. L. Moody and his brother-in-law Fleming H. Revell saw the need for practical books that would help bring the Christian faith to everyday life. From there, Fleming H. Revell Publishing developed consistently solid lists that included many notable Christian writers over the years. This same vision for books that are both inspirational and practical continues to motivate the Revell publishing group today. Whether publishing fiction, Christian living, self-help, marriage, family, or youth books, each Revell publication reflects relevance, integrity, and excellence.

Baker Books - has a vision for building up the body of Christ through books that are relevant, intelligent, and engaging. We publish titles for lay Christians on topics such as discipleship, spirituality, encouragement, relationships, marriage, parenting, and the intersection of Christianity and culture. We also publish books and ministry resources for pastors and church leaders, concentrating on topics such as preaching, worship, pastoral ministries, counseling, and leadership.

Baker Academic - serves the academy and the church by publishing works that further the pursuit of knowledge and understanding within the context of Christian faith. Building on our Reformed and evangelical heritage, we connect authors and readers across the broader academic community by publishing books that reflect historic Christianity and its contemporary expressions. Our authors are scholars who are leaders in their fields, write irenically, and display a healthy respect for other perspectives and traditions. Our goal is to publish books that are notable for their inherent quality and deemed essential reading by students and scholars.

Ever since the 1971 publication of The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom, Chosen Books has been publishing powerful books that help millions to live the Spirit-filled life. Attracting evangelicals and charismatics, professionals and laypersons, books published by Chosen help believers to better know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, to pray about the concerns that are on God's heart, to be empowered by his Spirit for ministry, to fulfill the Great Commission, and to transform their communities and their world. Several hundred titles over more than thirty years, from Charles Colson's Born Again to Cindy Jacobs' Possessing the Gates of the Enemy, reflect the publishing goal of Chosen Books: to publish well-crafted books that recognize the gifts and ministry of the Holy Spirit and help readers live more empowered and effective lives for Jesus Christ. Challenged by the written word, these hungry readers are joining the incredible adventure of what God is doing in the world.

Brazos Press - fosters the renewal of classical, orthodox Christianity by publishing thoughtful, theologically grounded books on subjects of importance to the church and the world. We serve authors and readers from all major streams of the historic Christian tradition, recognizing that the renewal of Christian orthodoxy transcends many traditional boundary lines and polarities.

Since July of 1990, Baker Publishing Group has been proud to be the North American distributor for Cambridge University Press Bibles. We take great pride in offering the world's finest Bibles to its customers. Each Bible is treated with the same traditional care and devotion to craftsmanship as was Cambridge's first Bible in 1591. In an age of mass production and quick turnover, Baker believes that readers still want and appreciate the fine quality Bibles that Cambridge offers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great edition of the ESV.  Apr 29, 2010
For the few (smile), who might read my reviews, you will note I am fond of the Pitt Minion Reference Bibles. I have a nice leather tote, I tend to read and carry several versions, The NASB, The NKJV, (A limited Edition Lambskin MacArthur Study Bible as my "big" reference, great Bible in Black, A FEW left on the GRACE TO YOU site for you J Mac fans), I also often carry and read the ESV, as the MANY merits of the ESV have been discussed, I shall focus on this gem. I received brown "Pitt Mins" in both the NASB and NKJV (both new colors prior you choices in goatskin were black OR black). Do not get me wrong Brethren! I love a classic black Bible, but, the rich dark brown is VERY elegant an a nice change of pace. I Give this a SOLID 5 Stars! ONE GOOOD NOTE! I like a Bible with an extra Marker, and I gave my other ESV to a Gent at church who was changing to the ESV, it had 1 ribbon the NEW BROWNS have 2! Great if you are reading the NT, and want to mark an OT Reference or vice-versa! The Brown still is still all "black ink" no red letter! The Pitts are almost magic to me, for the size, the print strike (Blue Heron I think.) POPS off the page. A GREAT, one hand so in Devotions, you can easily sip you coffee (or tea) and easily hold open your Holy Book! Take Up and Read. BLESSINGS TO ALL IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! Shalom!
The best compact Bible on the market. Period.  Mar 25, 2010
By the numbers:
1) The font: This font is very readable, yet compact. It's amazing how clear and easy to read the font is.
2) The paper: India paper. Outstanding. Some bleed through, but not enough to be distracting.
3) The maps: This is where this edition really stands out. This feature seems to be overlooked by most reviewers of most Bibles. I would say two things to this effect--a) If you're seriously studying the Bible, you need to start paying attention to its geography. Period. How can you follow the narrative flow of the Biblical story if you're not paying attention to geography? b) Except for study Bibles, the Pitt Minion has far and away the best maps I've ever seen. Shoot, this little Bible's map arsenal rivals that of many study Bibles. 15 maps with a complete map index! I have never seen anything like this in a compact Bible before.
4) The casing/cover: Beautiful brown leather! *Goatskin* leather! The ESV edition is a bit stiffer than the others (NASB, NIV, etc.) for some reason, but I really don't think this is a down side. The cover becomes very flexible with use. And, with a compact Bible this size, having a sturdy rather than floppy cover can be a plus.
5) The page edges: Art gilt (red dye under gold). The gilding, as I understand it, is real gold leaf (not the spray on stuff). These page edges will be protected for years. I've seen gold-leaf gilt edged books over 100 years old and the gold still glistens. The red under the gold adds an extra layer of protection. The art gilt edging gives you another reason to buy the brown edition, rather than the black edition, because the red-under-gold produces a sort of reddish-brownish-gold hue to the page edges, and this goes brilliantly with the brown leather.
6) Overall sturdiness and durability: Honestly, it takes at least two years to really be able to assess how well a book or Bible holds up, and I've not had mine for that long. That being said, I and my wife (I gave this Bible to her after I saw how much she liked it) have given this Bible some pretty bad beatings, and it has taken them all very well. We've thrown it in purses, pockets, brief-cases, etc. And it is still in very good shape. The text block is completely attached to the cover, and I can't see it coming undone any time soon. There is no separation between any of the pages. This one has held up very, very well.
7) The spine/binding: This one is, of course, smythe-sewn, but that's just the beginning of the story. The text block has a "springiness" that I've never seen before. It opens flat out of the box, with absolutely no coaxing. When you open it, it lies completely flat, whereas many Bibles and books, even smythe sewn ones, form a sort of arch as the papers curve back into the spine. Not the Pitt Minion.
8) Size: I'm a big guy, and I can put this in my somewhat sizeable pockets. Maybe most people can't fit it in their pocket, but you can carry it with you in your hand easily. It can fit in compartments in briefcases and backpacks easily. And it is very slender.

All in all, if you want one Bible to take with you for the long haul, one that you can trust to hold up to abuse, one that has plenty of good helps in the form of cross-references and maps, and one that you can carry with you anywhere--this is it.

In fact, I think that I'd sum up my review this way: If a soldier or chaplain were to ask me if there was a good Bible that they could take with them into a war zone and still count on it to hold up for life, I'd tell them that they want this Bible, the ESV Pitt Minion, preferably in brown goatskin.
A GREAT edition of the ESV!  Sep 16, 2009
I did a review on the black calfskin edition of the ESV Study Bible, in it I touch on why I like the ESV, so to avoid being redundant I will just focus on what I like about this little Gem from Cambridge. I love my ESV SB, but it is a little on the heave side for travel. So, I bought this. It is compact, it has a very fine and good sewn binding, the brown goatskin leather is VERY hard wearing and durable and nice looking to boot! Very nice paper (India) so it has a % of cotton fibers in the pulp which make it a durable paper. A charming "old-world" touch is the red-under-gold on the edges nice touch gives it a sort of "rose-gold" hue. A nice detail for me on the "Brown Edition" is the fact that it is all black letter (In the words of the late NT Scholar Dr. Bruce Metzger of Princeton, "Red letters imply that the words of Christ were far more important than His deeds." Amen, both were important, plus IMHO, since ALL Scripture is God Breathed, the red-letter thing never added up for me, :Is some of the Bible "more" Inspired than others? No! Psalms and Romans are "as" God-Breathed as ,say the Gospel of St. Luke. Think about it.") Anyway it is a great Bible to Travel with and move about the house with. My Wife has a "Pitt" as well and she adores hers. Pax!
Good, but did not come new  Aug 14, 2009
Like I saw with a previous reviewer of a Cambridge Pitt Minion, my Bible did not come in the shrink wrap and there was a little damage like a wrinkled page and slight scratch on the gold leafing. I will keep it since this will happen anyway, but I am still a bit disappointed that this site sent me a returned item. The actual Bible is excellent, it is very compact, maybe even smaller than I expected. The font is very legible and I hope to enjoy this for many years.
probably the best ESV out there at this time  Jul 29, 2009
This may be the best overall ESV out there at this time, as the title suggests. Unlike the Allan and Crossway editions, Cambridge has resisted the temptation to cheap out on the text block with ones printed in China--the Pitt Minion version is printed in the Netherlands. The print is a bit small, of course, as with any of the Pitt Minion's, but still pretty legible with the paper having decent opacity. The goatskin isn't leather lined as with the more expensive esv1 Allan's, but Cambridge arguably does the best job of those without the leather lining (the Allan esv3 is not leather lined either). Perversely, the Pitt Minion version seems to have a better quality ribbon than the one's I ended up cutting out of my KJV Cambridge Concord, which would make me assume that it might be better than Cambridge's Concord Wide Margin, which leaves the PM version as arguably the best overall. (The Allan ESV1 would have a nicer binding, but still uses the same made in China text block as the ESV3 and Crossway's).
