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.

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.

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.

Firstly, for all you who love the Original King James version (also known as the Authorised version) -for it's accuracy, this is a great buy.

Accuracy - simply because the KJV, being from the textus receptus (the recieved text, handed down the generations - translated for us by scholar Erasmus) is not translated from Rome's version - handled by St Jerome (Latin Vulgate)(based on vaticanus/ sinaticus manuscripts, etc).

This King James has no annoying study notes telling you what to think at all.

I have had many of the other versions that come from a Latin Vulgate basis and I wouldn't go back to them.

To be honest, a true bible is from the Recieved text (Not the vaticanus and sinaticus - but instead... - the recieved text - that was written, yes please believe me...at the time , and so, earlier!!!!!!!!!!!, (but not 'preserved' by Rome), than the Latin Vulgate.

The dead sea scrolls are accurate. (and not fiddled with)..God forbid. Just backs up my point.

The Original King James / Geneva or William Tyndale bibles came from the recieved text.

If in doubt...if it's from Rome leave it out.

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.

This is an excellent version of the King James Bible for Kindle. It has an easy to use contents and ability to jump from book to book and select chapters. The textual layout is lacking with no poetic formatting for the Psalms for instance.

Although the language is ancient the built in Kindle dictionary is helpful to understand some of the less used words. This is one of the most accurate translations of the Bible and is to be recommended.

The Best of "The Book of Books" that you can get. Note: Dont get the free version due to the fact, that thay will look wrong on your kindle. This is the one you will need.

The best bible in the world along with the copy of the old testment of the Apocryphy and the Gospel of Thomas.

I downloaded this onto my android for using as a reference back up for study. the text itself is fine, and the typeface can be enlarged to a good size if needed.
My only real gripe is that it is difficult to flip between different books quickly - if I am looking at Matthew, and then want to flip to say, Psalms, and then back to Matthew etc, it is a fairly clumsy process, much slower than thumbing through a paper book and keeping a marker where I need it.
Great if you just want to read one book straight through though, and I can hardly complain at the cost!!. Happy reading!
