Mention the “King James Version” or “KJV” to most people these days, and you are most likely to elicit groans, as people envision thick, dusty Bibles, with two columns of dense text, with verses interrupting forever-long sentences. And then they remember the “thee’s” and “thou’s” and the “est’s” and “eth’s”. And their next thought is, “No thank you.”
However, by doing that, many people do not realize just what they are missing! The King James Version of the Bible holds a unique place in the history of the English speaking world. It was the one common bond across borders and continents for centuries. It has had an enormous influence on our vocabulary, and is the source of many idioms that people take for granted.
Furthermore, the KJV is a classic of English literature. While its language may be a bit archaic, it is still read and enjoyed by people of all walks of life and of all ages and backgrounds even today.
What if you could read the KJV without all the extra additions, like verse numbers, and two-column, dense text, and what if you could read it, just like you did a normal book? And what if it were in the form and size of a normal book? What if you actually found yourself enjoying reading the KJV Bible—and truly enjoying it?Here are the main features of this edition:
