OK, if you don't know and love the original text of the King James' version. Norton has taken it upon himself to 'improve' the text by selectively updating the grammar. He says that he has removed all of the unnecessary alterations of previous revisions . . . maybe, but he has added many more of his own - there is scarcely a page on which there is not some grammatical modernisation which he has made.

I need to read the bible for literary reasons, and this version, arranged in paragraphs with verse numbers indicated in tiny font, is certainly easier to read than my old bible in double columns on flimsy tissue-paper. That said, it's still a hefty volume. There is useful preliminary material but I would have welcomed more informative maps to help me through Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers.

If every household had blessed themselves with having this great book in their houses, I have no doubt the world would be worthy of living in.
