Holman is the largest publisher of Masonic Bibles, and they have been doing it for a long time. They supply many different editions, including large standard bibles with full-page color pictures which are used by lodges and other masonic bodies on their altars; Scottish Rite and York Rite small-format editions for presentation to new initiates, slightly larger and fuller editions for Lodges for presentation to newly-raised members, and more.
