Good Aug 10, 2009
Good binding but needs to be stronger. Modern translation of the old English used is at the back. It has interesting topics that could guide readers to understanding the benefits of understanding the Word of God.
I would give this 6 stars if possible Dec 1, 2008
I love this version. This is my primary Bible and always will be. Awesome Bible, beautiful cover too! :)
Who was King James? Aug 2, 2005
I would like to address the question about King James suggested in a previous post. The King James in question was James I of England, who had been James VI of Scotland before he ascended to the English throne on the death of Elizabeth I, in 1603. King James did not write or translate the Bible; he commissioned the translation we know as the King James Version as an authoritative replacement for several different versions of the Bible, in the vernacular, circulating Europe in the seventeenth century. Each of these Bibles offered its own interpretation of the Word. James was convinced each was more or less flawed. Thus he commissioned "four and fifty" of the top biblical scholars of the day, men learned in the ancient languages of the Bible, to prepare a translation that would stand as the authoritative Word, for people reading in the seventeenth-century English vernacular.
The King James Version successfully supplanted its seventeenth-century competitors, and has withstood numerous challenges, up to the present day. Ironically, as the King James Version was written in the vernacular of its day, the "old-fashioned" language of the King James is often mistaken for "biblical" language, as if it represented the ways of speech of the Levant at the time of Christ. It does not, of course. More over, unless one accepts the premise that every translator of the Bible must be led by the hand of God, and therefore inerrant, one must accept that the King James version represents an interpretation of the Word appropriate to the seventeenth century, just as contemporary translations are interpretations appropriate to the present era. Luckily, God does not demand of us scholastic precision, only faith, and that we be true to the Word, not bound to mere words.
a good second or third Bible, maybe. Jan 10, 2004
This makes a good reference Bible if you do not have a NKJV translation, and want to compare passages for further understanding; the price makes it ideal for this purpose, as reading more than one version of a section that is hard to understand can be edifying. My daily reading is with The Amplified Bible (which is the one used by popular author and TV preacher Joyce Meyer), and have been using the KJV for comparison. I bought this as a third translation, but the more I read it, the more I like it, and will probably upgrade this volume to one with larger print in the near future, so I am torn between recommending this as a second or third Bible, or advise buying a better quality NKJV.
This is called a "Gift and Award" Bible, but with the print being so small, it would be a mistake to give this to a young person if it is intended as their primary Bible...they will soon tire of it no matter how sharp their vision; though this translation would be ideal for that purpose, a bigger font size is definitely needed. The words of Jesus are in red, and the back of the volume contains a "Read Your Bible Through in a Year" plan, dividing chapters in the New and Old Testaments on a daily basis; also included is a dictionary/concordance which has some line drawing illustrations, and this portion has a nice font size, and there are also two maps inside the back cover. "Leather Bound" means a single layer veneer, with cut edges. In the final analysis, this edition is of a superb translation, but one that can be read only for a few passages at a time because of the print.
Psalm 37:4 NKJV: "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart". KJV: "Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart". Amplified: "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart".
