Product Description

A major new edition of the King James Bible—faithfully presented for the twenty-first century
Although it is the most important book in the religious life and culture of the English-speaking world, the King James Bible, or Authorized Version of 1611, has never been perfectly represented in print. This edition makes available the translators' intended work with a fidelity never before achieved—allowing the most read, heard, and loved book in the English language to speak with new vigor to modern readers.
The work we have long read as the King James Bible contains numerous changes, both deliberate and accidental, to the text. David Norton has scrupulously collated the established text with the translators' original manuscripts to create this new authoritative edition. In addition, he has modernized and standardized the spelling but left intact the words and grammatical forms, and he has restored most of the original punctuation, which, unlike the standard version, largely adheres to modern practices. Finally, he presents the text in paragraph format, making this King James Bible a fully comprehensible and gratifying read.

Publisher's Description

The King James Bible or Authorized Version (1611) comprises the Old Testament, the Apocrypha and the New Testament, from God's creation of the heaven and earth and the fall of man in Genesis, through the life Jesus Christ, to St John the Divine's foretelling of the end of the world and God's final judgment in Revelation. Among the most influential texts of all time and the cornerstone of the Christian faith, the King James Bible is the work of the great scholars and theologians of the early seventeenth century and reflects their desire for greater stability in the Christian religion. They revised and retranslated existing versions, including that of William Tyndale, to create a standardized Bible that would be accessible to all speakers and readers of English. Definitive and highly readable, this superb edition brings new vigour to one of the finest pieces of English prose. 

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

    I really enjoy reading this paragraph format King James Bible. It is so easy to read! I can read several chapters at a time without struggling through comprehending each verse, as I sometimes did before with a standard format Bible. I really appreciate that it is in the traditional King James version, but is just more reader friendly. I highly recommend it!

    Handy paperback edition of the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible (KJV). A plus is that it includes corrections to the original edition. Unfortunately it does not include the translators' preface or the marginal notes.
