As it stands now, this is the only Bible publisher that I will recommend to people.

I also recommend Bearing Precious Seed, as I mentioned before, although I think they are more focused on getting the scriptures out throughout the world than selling Bibles to Christians they do have a minimal selection of text only Bibles. I particularly like the wide margin. http://bpsmilford.org/

They also print John and Romans booklets and things to distribute.

I would like to order a Bible from them as well. It appears that there are at least two "Bearing Precious Seed" ministries:
Bearing Precious Seed Milford "Local Church Scripture Printing" started in 1973
Bearing Precious Seed Lansing started in 1975 which is connected with Local Church Bible Publishers.
I will still have to do more reading into their histories, but their origins suggest the possibility of a shared origin that split at some point. It is unclear to me, so I cannot say for sure.
I've read a little in the past, and as I remember there are/were many churches involved in various areas of BPS ministries, and they're not all necessarily affiliated with the original BPS or each other, so my understanding goes along with yours. I think Milford was the first if I remember. They're the first one I became familiar with through their missions to Mexico (they have a ministry located in El Paso also).

Before blindly purchasing (I don't know why the website gives so little details) there are some You-tube videos. This one compares the wide margin and the large print. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqGwveG3dHk

I watched some of this and it seems there my have been some minor changes since I got mine 10 years ago, such as the cover being sewn around the edges on the wide-margin. Also he called the binding of the WM "french morocco calfskin", I don't think there is such a thing, but mine is supposed to be genuine Moroccan leather. Kind of thin, but has held up very well.

And this one compares a BPS with a LCBP wide margin. Reminds me of one thing I like about the BPS is the wide margin all around the text, including the center near the spine between the pages. I watched this video so far up to where he calls it "moroccan calfskin leather" also. (I though Moroccan was goat?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86mSl9baC_o

You definitely get a much wider selection from LCBP, but I also have sort of an affinity with BPS Milford because of their missions work and supplying Scriptures to missionaries. LCBP may also do this more than I'm aware of, but I'm not as familiar. I think they both do worthy work, and I'm happy to have options where I don't have to go to a worldly profit motivated company.

What a coincidence, I just stumbled across this post as I was browsing the forum.
I was also very intrigued by the Good a News newspaper I received with my Bible order from LCBP. I called them this morning and talked to Rick. I was quoted ten cents apiece for the little newspaper with the Gospel of John and the Epistle to the Romans. Looks like with shipping it'll be 43 dollars and some change for two hundred of them
He had me send an email to him with my name, address, email and quantity. If you're going to order some, you Prolly should call first because there might be someone else there working.

I plan to give them out like tracts while witnessing, as I think they would be handy for anyone to tuck under their arm or fold up and put in their pocket.
Also, like a tract, if they leave it on a mission table or under a bridge, someone else looking to get caught up on the news might happen to pick it up.
