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.

    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.
