Reviews - What do customers think about King James Study Bible?
Mom in SSF Jan 19, 2007
This study bible is wonderful. The large print was a surprise! Definitely recommend this study bible a must for learning.
Visually easy to read May 23, 2005
I was a little hesitant at first to buy a personal size edition, but I took a chance. Usually, I buy dictionary-sized large-print Bibles, but I'm pleased with the typesetting in this edition. There is comfortable space between lines and between words. The notes are clear and obviously written for people who simply want to read and understand their Bible.
One of the finest available Sep 20, 2004
After searching for a decent & reliable KJV study bible, this one has become a well loved & cherished companion of mine for several years now. Type-set is easy to read, center-column references are excellent, doctrinal footnotes are both helpful & insightful. The concordance is adequate, but could be expanded just a bit -- Although, at 2000+ pages, it probably isn't practical to do so. As with any study bible or commentary, the leading & guiding of the Holy Spirit is to take precedence over any notes or commentary. I highly recommend this study bible. However, spend a few extra bucks and get the genuine leather.
Jerry Falwell's KJV Bible Jul 17, 2004
I got one of these because the KJV is my favourite translation. Not that I believe that this particular translation inspired, or that other translations are somehow sinister or distorted. Rather, it's that the King James Bible is familiar, poetic, inspiring, and a literary masterpiece in a way that other translations aren't. It would really be nice to have a fully annotated King James Bible that preserved the traditional beauty of the text without beating you over the head with notes that, frankly, insult your intelligence. This one, unfortunately, is not it.
The opening paragraphs of Genesis 1 are furnished with anti-evolution comments. Hebrews 6 is annotated with a paean to "fundamentalism." The dispensationalist system is accepted without even taking notice of contrary ideas, and treated as part of the gospel, and defined in its most extreme form: "A dispensation is an administration within a period of time that is based on a conditional test to determine if people will be faithful to God. . . " Whatever happened to "For I am the LORD, I change not?" (Malachi 3:6) At Ezekiel 38, it repeats the old claim that Gog is Russia. At least we aren't told that Genesis 1 took place in 4004 BC.
In fairness to the book, the index made it easy to find all of these problematic parts in the commentary. The text of the Bible itself is large without being "large print" ugly, and the entire system is easy to read and use. Take your text and your cross references from this one; but take your commentary from some other publication.
GREAT for following along in sermons at church... Mar 19, 2003
This Bible, besides containing a wealth of cross-references for study, also features notes that are right in line with the traditional mainstream Baptist interpretation of scripture (except KJVO which is not traditional, historical Baptist doctrine anyway). (The notes in this Bible were originally written by Liberty University profs in the early 1980s) ...which makes this Bible great for following along in preaching to see at a glance if your Baptist pastor is teaching something new or contrary to traditional Baptist doctrine. Of course, final judgement is reserved for personal inductive study of the matter, but I remember at least one time this Bible brought out facts clearly enough during a sermon to where I knew for a fact the pastor was wrong- and unfortunately based his whole sermon on it. I give this Bible 4 stars because, of course, the conservative traditional Baptist doctrine in the notes is strongly pre-trib, to the point where other views are not given enough space, IMHO.
