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.

I wanted a white bible as a christening gift and this one is just right. It has a page to write a personal message is just the right size for a child.

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.

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!
