Bought it because it had the illustrations, I used to see in these books when growing up so it was a bit of a nostalgia trip as I'm no longer religious as such, but not an enemy of the bible and a lover of these type of drawings. So I bought one to give to my brother who still adheres to our religion but also bought one for myself too as I wanted to stay close to these fascinating illustrations. The illustrations by Gustave Dore are worth the book alone and what's so amazing it makes you read the book. You see an illustration and then want to find out a bit more and before you know you've been reading an hour. I don't know if that was the original intention of illustrations, but is so it certainly works for me. What about the book? It's well bound and beautifully finished as all Barnes and Noble books appear to be. I can vouch for that as I bought a few, but it doesn't stop there: the print is just right, the book is big and heavy but it feels right, and the text is just he right size and it doesn't reflect light and leaving the subject aside, it's a pleasure to read the book and an effortless experience. In my experience people who believe want for whatever reason also a nice bible (often they have quite a few already) and you can't go much wrong with this one. It would be a family treasure for years to come, well made and strong with illustrations which draw you in ( as only Gustave Dore could make them - he reminds me of Albrecht Durer) and easy reading text. You won't waste your money.

The actual religious content aside this is an enormous and beautifully bound edition of the Bible, with gold gilt edged pages and a sumptuous richly coloured leather bound cover. The text is supplemented throughout with the beautiful and evocative images of Gustave Dore. The image really does not do justice to how handsome a book this is, a treasure for any library.

The cover is stunning and the illustrations are lovely. Most pages are of course not illustrated, but it's a joy to rest your eyes on one of these detailed drawings after having read a number of pages.

Bible is truly beautiful and amazing for the price. The drawings throughout add a new dimension and brings the story alive! The binding is stunning and if only all books could look this good. A treasure and I will read this book this year following a reading plan.

Beautiful edition and extremely good value. The bonded leather cover has a very striking design. The quality of the paper is excellent, as are the black and white illustrations throughout. The size of the print, while not particularly large is just right and comfortable to read. Would recommend this without hesitation. Note: this is a large book. If you are looking for a small, portable bible this is not really suitable. It is perfect for home study.

I can't fully express how beautiful this edition of the Kings James version of the Bible is.

It is beautiful literature, presented in beautiful materials.

A beautifully finished book which made an ideal gift for my friend's son's first communion. This is a solid book which would be ideal as a family Bible.
