Perhaps it was just pre-ordained to be special in not being ostentatiously special.
Dr. Chuang Wei Ping
Extra Information throughout the books: Being a study bible, it has all the verse references scattered throughout the bible like a reference bible would.

I purchased this as a birthday gift for my husband, but I think I enjoy it more than he does!

Yes, this bible has a very nice brown Cowhide leather cover, probably the best I have seen and felt. It is very soft to touch.

The hinged brown box is what you see on the Amazon illustration. Only the box, which is printed in China, says 400th Anniversary Edition.

The bible itself is printed in Columbia. And here is the rub.

Nothing in the Bible identifies it a special 400th Anniversary Edition. If you threw away the rather flimsy box, this is a normal 35th reprint of the 1988 Study Bible. Nothing on the spine(nice raised bands) or the title pages identify it as a 400th Anniversary edition. In fact it was printed in 2009, which was not close to the 400th year.

You will be paying nearly double for the same bible which has had comments for its substandard workmanship. See reviews under "King James Study Bible" from Thomas Nelson. It is the same one. The pages are glued, and not stitched or sewn. The gutter is very narrow and the bible does not open up flat. The two ribbons over 1Kings and John are symmetrical around the centre, and this reflects the amount of supplementary material at the back of the bible.

There is a very thin booklet on the 400th Anniversary in the 400th Anniversary BOX, but as I said, it is the same study bible. The bible did not have an additional gold stamping on its cover or spine proclaiming it to be a commemorative edition. The bible itself did not have anything at all on the flyleaf, title page, or anywhere else to indicate it was meant to be a 400th Anniversary edition.

I have nothing but praise for the excellent written commentary, and God forbid that I critique the text. I have written to Thomas Nelson for their comments, and if they do reply, I will add their remarks to this review.

This Bible comes with a real cowhide (brown) leather binding with hubs not seen on most Bibles. It is truly a collectors Bible. I have a stack of other Bibles and of course if it's not King James it isn't Bible, but the construction on this Bible is like none I have ever seen...and not a bonded or cardboard cover like cheaper Bibles. But if you know Thomas Nelson and other Bibles such as Thompson Chain, I find a few discrepancies - see Matt. 16:14. Concerning the name Elijah or Elias. But I LOVE THIS BIBLE AS A PERSONAL BIBLE FOR MYSELF, and even bought my wife one..

As a Sunday School teacher and a reader of the KJV for many years, I can personally attest that this is my favorite version of the KJV I've ever owned (and I've owned at least 10 or 15 over the years). The notes are clear and insightful, giving perspectives I've never considered before, and they appear right there on the page with the verses they reference. To give you an example, when Simeon first meets the baby Jesus in the temple and recognizes Him as the Christ, the promised Messiah, the Salvation of the world, he holds Him up and says that this little Child is "A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel," after which the next verse describes how Mary and Joseph "marveled at those things which were spoken of him." (from Luke 2:32-33). I personally always wondered why Mary and Joseph were so amazed at this prophecy, since they knew from the beginning that Jesus was the Messiah and Son of God, but the Note in this version explains: "Here for the first time the parents hear the STARTLING prophecy that Jesus' significance will extend EVEN TO THE GENTILES." (emphasis mine). This surprised them, as it may have even surprised Simeon, since they would have only be thinking about Jesus being the promised salvation of Israel, God's chosen people.

For those who are fearful that this Bible is a "counterfeit," I can tell you that it reads exactly the same as my Old Scofield, King James Version. It's no different. The church where I worship only uses the Authorized King James Version and does not accept any other version, and certainly no counterfeits. My husband and my pastor both like my Bible so much that they have requested a copy of their own.

We LOVE this Bible. It's informative, resourceful and easy to follow along! I purchased this as a birthday gift for my husband, but I think I enjoy it more than he does! Will be purchasing one for myself soon.

This is a wonderful bible. I recommend the King James version because the problem most people have with understanding the bible or not understanding the bible is not the "Thee's and Thou's" but rather their heart.
The Bible is a spiritual book. If you are lost and trying to understand it, you will see little more than some genealogy and many accounts of the lives of men and women of God that seem to have little importance to you, and often worded in an odd fashion. I know because I've read it on occasion when I was lost. If you are saved, and bought by the blood of Jesus Christ, and you have a desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord, then the Lord reveals many things unto you you never understood before. You realize that it wasn't the King James version keeping you from being a Christian,but rather your heart.
The newer translations, even the NIV have removed many words. I feel those words are there for a reason. Besides, the KJV has been saving souls for 400 years, that's good enough for me.
-Red Letter: All the words of Jesus Christ are in red.
-Type face (font):
It's the classic "Times New Roman" font. You can't go wrong with that style of lettering as it was designed to be the easiest to read. The size of the letters are 10 point.
-KJV names:
This bible just spells names as if you already know how to pronounce them. I like that. When I was younger, I had a KJV that would type all names as they were pronounced (ie- with dots between syllables, lines over the vowels etc) and I remember how I would lose focus of the story getting stuck on pronouncing the name.
