Product Description

Review

‘The King James Bible is a cornerstone of our culture and our language…To read it is to feel simultaneously at home, a citizen of the world, and a traveller through eternity.’ Andrew Motion

‘If you have no Bible, you have no way to live’ Rosa Parks

‘There is no doubt in my mind that the King James Bible and not Shakespeare set this language on its path to become a universal language on a scale unprecedented before or since.’ Melvyn Bragg

‘The DNA of our language’ Frank Field MP

About the Author

For 400 years, the King James Version has represented the epitome of the English language in all its power and glory.

Across continents and cultures, its language has changed how we speak, and its claims have changed how we live. This is a book which is both loved by many and despised by some, but which simply cannot be ignored.

So whether you wish to encounter the King James Bible for the first time, or return to it as an old friend, this edition is your ideal companion.

All that I wanted was a reliable, affordable, attractive Kindle edition of the greatest book in all history -- and one that DEFINITELY was its greatest translation, the original 1611, without any soulless tampering. Of course, the spelling is modernised, but it has been since the 18th century, and I have no quibbles with that. This is the best I could find after extensive searching, and it more than lives up to what I wanted.

Excellent! Use it regularly at home and in Church. The index allows you to find chapter and verse quickly and also allows cross referencing. Very good value for money. Highly recommended.

Although I use modern versions of the Bible, I always want to have the Authorised Version (KJV) as a reference and because of its poetic form. This edition is excellent for use in the Kindle and I liked the paragraph style.

As a Christening gift, this ticks all the right boxes, and fully deserves four stars. But as a Bible that's meant to be read, it suffers from a few niggles that prevent me giving it the fifth star. It's a bit small; yes, the product description does state the size, so I should have been forewarned, but it's diminuitive pages were still a surprise. The text is perfectly readable, but everything just feels a bit too condensed and squashed on the page. The print quality is merely adequate, a slight disappointment after the impressive exterior cover. So yes, as a gift this is ideal. But I'd suggest you think twice if you want a Bible for reading regularly.

Beautifully and simply designed, the Holy Bible is a book we should all have but with so many to choose from it can be hard ! This edition is officially allowed to be read in church and it has the more traditional language, which makes it even more classic. Highly recommended by me, also the seller posted this ultra quickly, I will definitely use them again.
