Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Shortly after inheriting the throne of England in the midst of violent religious strife, King James I called together the country's leading churchmen and theologians at Hampton Court, "for the hearing, and for the determining, of things pretended to be amiss in the Church."

Out of that conference came the memorable decision to commission a new translation of the Holy Scriptures. King James I eagerly approved the idea in the hope that this new translation might help avert civil war by uniting the religious factions within his country. The uniform translation, since called the "King James Version," dramatically affected the course of development of the English-speaking world.

Nelson's reprint of the King James Version of the Bible is a faithful reproduction of the original text set in modern typeface for better readability. The decorative initials and border designs are from a 1911 edition.

They did not integrate it into the Old Testament text as do the corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts.

This is a beautiful, accurate edition of the Authorized Version of the Bible.

This King James Version is a word-for-word reprint of the orginial 1611 edition. This bible includes the orginal marginal notes, the "Translators to the Reader" preface and the apocryphal books that have been taken out by modern publishers. So why don't you find out what has been removed for YOUR KJV by buying this glorious reprint?

BOOK REVIEW:
This 1611 Edition of the King James Version of the Bible is just like the modern edition but with old spelling and some things that are not found in the modern edition. As a comparison, these are the openings of the book of Matthew between the two editions:
(BEGIN COMPARISON)
--Modern Edition--
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW
1 THE book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
--1611 Edition--
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO S.Matthew
C H A P. I.
1 The genealogie of Christ from Abraham to Ioseph. 18 Hee was conceiued by the holy Ghost, and borne of the Virgin Mary when she was espoused to Ioseph. 19 The Angel satisfieth the misdeeming thoughts of Ioseph, and interpreteth the names of Christ.
T H E booke of the * generation of Iesus Christ , the sonne of Dauid, the sonne of Abraham.
(END COMPARISON)
Here are some pros and cons for this 1611 Edition:
--Pros--
- In addition to the Old Testament and the New Testament, the Apochrypha is also in here
- The old spelling, punctuation, and grammar is in this edition
- The text is set at modern type, so it can be read easily
- There are some footnotes at the sides
- The Bible is in hardcover.
--Cons--
- The pages are too thin; it seems like they can be wrinkled very easily
- The words are small
- The words of Jesus Christ are not in red letters--this is NOT a Red Letter Edition
- Quotes are opened with star symbol (i.e. *) but no * symbol is used to close the quote; this might make it hard for some readers, like myself, to know where one particular quote ends
- This edition is expensive; I recommend getting it through Amazon.com,...
Overall, I recommend this Edition--what a great reprint!

I shopped quite a bit on-line before I bought this bible. I read all the reviews I could find ,and knew beforehand that: 1. It does not have the black letter type which was the original type of the 1611 King James Bible. However, none of the reviews mentioned that : 2. It is missing MANY, ( 48 by my count ) pages from the front of the original 1611 bible. These pages have extraordinarily beautiful woodcuts and include biblical genealogies, maps, charts ,etc. I guess because it would have cost so much more to produce the bible with these. I have a digital facsimile (on CD-Rom) of the 1911 anniversary reproduction by Oxford as my reference.
Now for the good part. For the price, this is a treasure. Much to be valued is the "Translators to the Reader" section which is missing from almost all KB bibles of today and is SO IMPORTANT to help understand the minds and views of these great men. To sum it up, they claimed no exclusivity as to the rights of an inspired version of the bible. In their words, "Now to the latter we answer; that we do not deny, nay we affirm and avow, that the very meanest translation of the Bible in English, set forth by men of our profession, containeth the word of God, nay, is the word of God."
I considered the Vintage Archives KJV 1611 Replica, but I have their Geneva Bible 1560 Facsimile and am a little disappointed in the quality of the printing and paper. I knew with Nelson that the quality would be acceptable and I am not disappointed.
I love this old book! No other more beautiful version of the bible--a gift from God to man!

This is a wonderful copy of the old King James text replete with early 17th century spelling, ie., "byt yf ye be obeyssant to our Lorde the Kynge", that sort of thing. The Holy Scriptures are, without a doubt, the most important and influential writings known to man. Absolutely indispensable for one's salvation. Don't trust others tell you what is in the Bible. Men prefer to lie and manipulate the Scriptures to suit themselves. Get your own copy and discern for yourself.

To the glowing comments already expressed I would just like to add that this Bible also uses the original spellings (which modern editions have all updated) and contains a church calender/lectionary that is very interesting (it includes Roman dates for the months and major astrological events--for time-keeping, not fortune-telling!) A great bible for those who love tradition and history.

This is the best English version of the Bible for the simple reason that it was translated before the "Enligntenent" also known as the "Age of Reason." The Translators used the Received Text from the church of Antioch, rather than the Alexandrain text favored by the "higher critics" such as Westcott and Hort. The Alexandrian text omits the resurrection from Mark's Gospel. The men who translated this Bible didn't question the authority of God's word. They didn't believe that there are two or three Isaiahs. This version was translated before it was considered foolishness to believe in God and miracles. It was translated before Darwin, when learned men still believed that God created man in His own image. It was translated at a time when people viewed the Bible not as a book which contains the word of God, but which IS the Word of God--every single word.
