The Authorised Version for today's youth Nov 11, 2004
The King James Version of the Bible is one version by which many if not most Christians in the English world swear by; if it is not considered the one-and-only version, then it is certainly in the top tier, both for traditional and spiritual reasons on the part of readers. Other versions have populated the biblical landscape, but none has come to close as yet to having the enduring quality and staying power of the King James Version, first published in 1611.
In addition to this traditional text, this particular student bible includes daily devotions (365 of them) that step through the bible in a linear fashion (January 1 is at Genesis 1, and so forth). It includes 1000 Life Track notes, which develop different topics in pull-quote boxes scattered throughout the text - these link together topically in a fashion by drawing page-numbers together in different parts of the biblical text. Finally, there are 100 Fast Track Readings, designed to give the beginner to the bible a quick overview in 100 days of the majority of the biblical message, deriving from different parts of the texts of different literary forms (gospels, prophets, history, etc.).
There is a minor quibble with the thin pages - the text is printed in an ink and colour strong enough to bleed through the pages. The fonts are clear enough, however, to overcome the minor reading difficulty this can cause.
Each book is introduced with an 'at a glance' section, quick overview in bullet points and major themes. There are also 'Amazing Words' pulled from each book at the start, a fast summary list of the most famous and most-quoted pieces. The study helps in the back include a topic index, reading plans for completing the bible in one year as well as the fast-track 100 plan.
This book is designed for a younger person - the themes highlighted will be of more interest to teen-aged and early-20s groups. There aren't a lot of textual notes with regard to language, history, etc., so in that since, this is more of a devotional bible than a study bible.
A great gift for younger people, and a great text generally.
