Format: Paperback
This book is basically the King James Version with eight verses changed, and that is all you really need to know about it. There's nothing wrong with interpreting the Bible (millions of preachers worldwide do it every sunday), and there's nothing wrong with re-translating it (because language does not stay still), but there has to be an academic justification for the changes made. You can't just alter it because you happen to personally disagree with certain elements. That is, effectively, a form of censorship.

The truth is that someone who buys this book is doing so simply to make a statement on the subject of Homosexuality. There's nothing wrong with making statements as such, but that is not what the Holy Bible is for. You are meant to read it, ponder on it, and be transformed by the renewing of your mind. And if you have changed the text to your pre-decided notions beforehand, there's not much chance of that happening, is there?

WOW! Just WOW! Totally sick of those who made this. Taking the word of God and adding to and taking away. !! Guess you haven't read the scriptures.
"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (‭Revelation‬ ‭22‬:‭18-19‬ KJV)
We are not to mess with the gist of God 's word!

First of all a few disclosures: I am a gay man and a gay Christian, so my thoughts on this issue obviously will lean in one direction.

Spoiler Alert: This is a King James Version bible with 8 verses edited: specifically: Gen. 19:5, Lev. 18:22, Lev. 20:13, Rom. 1:26, Rom. 1:27, 1 Cor. 6:9 and 1 Tim. 1:10 and Jude 1:7. The price of $ 35 for this is simply uncalled for. Save money, buy Holy Bible: King James Version , scratch out the relevant verses and insert the edits proposed on the QJV's website: Queenjamesbible.com

This is not helpful to the cause of GLBT equality or for GLBT Christians. Instead of acknowledging the difficulties in the Bible, this publication only glosses over them by covering them up. I as a gay Christian don't believe that the Bible should be interpreted against GLBT people, but I also believe that the debate has to be honest, and not use cheap trickery like changing the wording in a select eight verses to prove one's point and to make a Bible "discrimination proof". Do the "editors" not realize that the Bible that they published is also anti-woman? (1 Cor. 14:34-35)

The KJV of course has its own issues being that the source texts it uses (even in its 1769 incarnation) are grossly outdated. So why did these "editors" choose to use a translation that is out of date, and for all intents and purposes not used outside of fundamentalist groups? The simple answer is copyright. The KJV is public domain in the United States and not subject to copyright or licensing requirements.

This book which claims to be a LGBT-friendly revision of the Bible is constructed to make people feel good about their personal choices, and yet the Bible was not authored for mankind to read as an affirmation of their life choices. It is the story of God's revelation to His creation and it provides very deliberate truth that many will find offensive.

There are specific passages that have been altered in this book that was previously a translation of the Bible referred to as the King James Version (KJV) which is a translation that exists in the public domain.

To set the record straight, the fairly recent appearance of the word “homosexuality” in Bible translation is no indication that it wasn’t a biblical issue prior to the mid-20th century. The term does not appear in English Bibles before 1946 simply because it was not an English word until just a few decades earlier, and even then it took some time to come into common use.

Here are five notable changes (there are more) made in creating this book (which by record of change disqualifies it as a translation of the Bible).

1. Genesis 19:5
ORIGINAL TEXT: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

MODIFIED TEXT: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may rape and humiliate them (QJV pg. 21)

2. Leviticus 18:22
ORIGINAL TEXT: Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

MODIFIED TEXT: Thou shall not lie with mankind as with womankind in the temple of Molech: it is an abomination (QJV pg. 75)
