Mr Vance has taken all of the words which are considered to be "outdated" and compiled them into a form of encyclopaedia.
This book should be put on your "MUST HAVE" list, if you are a avid reader of the KJV Bible. It will not only enhance your bible study but it will also give you better understanding of the LORD's word.
You talk about Archaic Words. Take a look at a few I got out of the NIV which is supposed to me a Modern Version.
Abashed, annotations, cors, dissipation, fellowman, filigree, fomenting, goiim, ignoble, jowls, mainstay, marauders, pinions, porphyry, portent, profligate, qualm, resplendent, revening, squall, and wadi, just to name a few.
Why does the NIV use these Archaic Words? Because of Copyright Laws. New version have to be significantly different from others so a lot of trips to the Thesaurus is needed.
What does this all this lead to? A Bible that gets further and further away from the real Word of God which many believe the closest can be found in English in the King James Version.
The book itself is bound well, opens easily and lies flat for comfortable reading. The print is dark, the paper thick enough so there's no bleedthrough from the next page. The print is also large enough for readers of all ages. In other words, the author/publisher has taken efforts to design the book so that the reader can actually use it with comfort.
I am extremely pleased and recommend it for anyone studying, contemplating, or just perusing the King James Version.
“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.” (1 Thessalonians 2:13)
