Item description for The Bible (Penguin Classics) by Anonymous...

Overview
A major new edition of the King James Bible—faithfully presented for the twenty-first centuryAlthough it is the most important book in the religious life and culture of the English-speaking world, the King James Bible, or Authorized Version of 1611, has never been perfectly represented in print. This edition makes available the translators' intended work with a fidelity never before achieved—allowing the most read, heard, and loved book in the English language to speak with new vigor to modern readers.The work we have long read as the King James Bible contains numerous changes, both deliberate and accidental, to the text. David Norton has scrupulously collated the established text with the translators' original manuscripts to create this new authoritative edition. In addition, he has modernized and standardized the spelling but left intact the words and grammatical forms, and he has restored most of the original punctuation, which, unlike the standard version, largely adheres to modern practices. Finally, he presents the text in paragraph format, making this King James Bible a fully comprehensible and gratifying read.
  • Single column format
  • 8 point text
  • Book Introductions (collected in back)
  • Black & White Maps
  • Includes Apocrypha
  • 5.25"  x  8.5"  x  2"

Reviews - What do customers think about The Bible (Penguin Classics)?

outstanding, important, and attractive edition of the KJV  Sep 27, 2006
Penguin Classics is highly to be commended for making available - in very attractive and economical form - the outstanding edition of the KJV offered by David Norton and previously published as the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible. Given the extent of the project, it was only inevitable that the first edition of this would have some errors (mostly typographical - such as 1 Corinthians 15:37). In the present volume these have been corrected.

True, it is possible to disagree with Dr. Norton on matters of method or literary/editorial judgment, but most believe that his work will stand the test of time as a remarkable, important achievement - based on the work of the orginal KJV translators and making their work, once again, enduringly readable. There is little doubt that, in time, his work will become definitive. For a college introductory course on the Bible or for people who want to engage with the KJV without being bound to all the unhelpful happenstances of the now standard editions, this Penguin Classics presentation is the one to buy. Highly recommended.
 
The NCPB without the errors  Sep 23, 2006
This edition of the King James Bible was first published by Cambridge University Press in a larger font and page size as the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible. The NCPB was a new edition of the King James Bible, edited by English lecturer David Norton who wanted to update the archaic spelling of 1611, put the traditional verse format into paragraphs, and restore readings which he felt were closer to the original 1611 edition. The initial printing of the NCPB had many printing errors but these have been corrected in this Penguin edition.
