10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By J. Brian Watkins VINE VOICE on April 26, 2007
Format: Paperback
The Bible is the best-selling book ever written. One cannot hope to fathom the depths of literature without obtaining at least a passing familiarity with the Bible. However, in what I believe to be a misguided attempt to expand the reach of the book, it has been rewritten in a myriad of fashions in order to reach a "wider" audience; in forms as diverse as Hawaiian slang, hip-hop, gender neutral, and just about any other form that mankind can dream up.

I for one am grateful to have been brought up with the good old King James version. The language of the King James has a gravitas that seems to this reviewer to be perfectly appropriate. The formality of King James' English adds to the power of the words--again personal opinion. I'm sure that the Revised Standard has the same power and hold upon a person introduced to the Bible through that translation. Mormons are big on the issue of translation--we are taught that the Bible is correct so far as it is translated correctly and our Church holds that the King James translation is preferred to other translations.

Well, among all the translations available, here's why you should try this version: This Bible was the result of years of diligent work by LDS scholars who succeeded in providing amazingly detailed and accessible internal translation aids for the archaic English, Hebrew, and Greek words, as well as cross-referencing, maps, pictures of the Holy Land, indices and a Bible Dictionary. You could spend a ton of money and not find an index or concordance as complete as the cross-references included in this volume. The references add tremendously to the ability to understand the work.
