I am attaching comparisons of the version I was sent (a REGENCY Bible, but published by ROYAL PUBLISHERS), versus what I already own (and was hoping to get a 2nd copy of), so you know what to look for & expect..
The version I own & recommend is also a REGENCY Bible, but the publisher is NELSON ... and that makes all the difference in the world!! Both Bibles are King James Versions & Red Letter Reference Editions, and judging just from the info on the covers, you would think they would be identical in content. You know what they say, though... don't judge a book by its cover (lame, I know... but so true for this!!!)
If you get the correct one, this Bible is truly an amazing book and something to keep in the family as an heirloom. I am still looking for a 2nd NELSON Regency Bible (to give as a gift to my mom... because I cant bring myself to part with the one I found at the thrift store!!).
FYI... Its a big, hardback bible... maybe 9"x 13" and at about 3-4" thick.
What to look for/ expect:
1. (1st pic) the version I recommend is actually the less attractive one, on the left side of the picture. Its more beige, instead of white color cover. Both Bibles have gold leaf pages & both say they are REGENCY Bibles/ King James Version/ Old & New Testament/ Red Letter Edition. IT GETS CONFUSING BUT THE BIBLE I BOUGHT FROM AMAZON (WITH NO IMAGE OF CHRIST ON THE OUTSIDE COVER), IS ACTUALLY THE BIBLE THAT SAYS "NELSON" ON THE SPINE. HOWEVER, WHEN I REFERENCE THE BETTER OF THE TWO BIBLES, MY RECOMMENDATION IS IN FAVOR OF THE "THOMAS NELSON PUBLISHERS, NASHVILLE TN"... (which only says "Regency" on the spine).
2. (2nd pic) example of multiple, photo finish (gloss print) pages that are in the NELSON Version
3. (3rd pic) shows Publisher information & detailed comparison between NELSON (gold/ beige accents) & ROYAL (blue accents) Versions.
4. (4th pic) shows comparison between NELSON (left) & ROYAL (right/ top) Versions. Notice the ROYAL Version/s image is not centered OR straight on the page. It looks like it was made quickly from a color copier and then the pictures were added, after the fact, to the Bible.
5. (5th pic) sample images only in NELSON Version.
6. (6th picture) example of ROYAL large image. If you look at where the page is to the spine, it looks as if the pages were printed on very large paper, folded in half and then glued to the book, after the fact.
7. (7th pic) "Historic Christian Figures" reference list, only in NELSON Version.
8. (8th pic) "Subject Index", only in NELSON Version and incredibly useful. Its great to be able to search for passages about "love" or "loss" or any word/ topic.
9. (9th pic) example of how words/ terms are defined in detail, some with imagery, at the back of the Bible.
The ROYAL Version had OVER half of the color images missing from it, and the ones it did have were clearly not part of the original binding. The images are not as vivid or glossy, but the worst part is that a lot them are crooked on the page (like a bad color copy duplicate that had a small paper jam problem).
I have only two CONs regarding this bible: 1, there are no indents from the outside marking the start of books, making it more difficult to quickly find one - not that this is a big deal. And 2, as most bibles in general do (and not for our benefit!), the sacred names of our Heavenly Father and His Messiah are mistranslated. God is not the name of our Father, Yahweh is His name. Jesus is not the name of our savior, Yahushua is His name. Names are very important. Who we call God, the name of He who this bible has substitued as "L O R D" and "God", His name appears in the original Hebrew scriptures more than 7,000 times and is the 7th most common word in the Hebrew scriptures, He is Yahweh. Consider what Yahweh says to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 23:26-27 - "How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal." "Baal" translates to "Lord", and yes, this bible uses the word "L O R D" when translated regarding our Father, and Lord when translated from the word "baal" or similar, but it is essentially the same name and it is not a worth substitute for His name.
The name Jesus is the Greek/Latin translation of the Messiah's contracted Hebrew name (Joshua) from His original Hebrew name (Yahoshua). The name Jesus is the translation of the name Joshua, which In Hebrews 4:7 and Acts 7:44, the KJV bible translates Joshua, son of Nun, as "Jesus". The name Joshua and the translation Jesus alike, mean savior - but the name Joshua's original and full form is Jehoshua, or Yahoshua before the introduction of the "J". Our Messiah's name is Yahoshua, not Jesus.
If this bible did not contain these misused translations, it'd be the best bible I've come across thus far.
