Many of my friends grew up with the King James Version and can read it and understand what they read. I didn't grow up with the KJV. Try as I might it I was constantly frustrated by words and sentence structure of the King James Version. Now however, with the Easy Reader KJV reading is a pleasure. The extra helps further explaining unfamiliar words in the text really enhances the reading experience. So far I have read Revelation, and now I'm starting in Genesis and plan on reading all the way through to Revelation this year in the Easy Reader King James Version. I have noticed in the genealogies names are spelled differently than I am used to, but so far so good otherwise. It really retains the majestic beauty of the KJV while making it possible to comprehend the message.
Physically the Bible itself has a sewn binding which I appreciate because it will last longer. The print size is large for the text but some of the notes are quite small and I use a magnifier to see them more clearly. I am fifty six and my eyes aren't as sharp as they once were. Don't let that discourage you from buying this wonderful edition of the Bible. I got genuine leather in black and it's beautiful. I'm so grateful for Christian Book Distributors without them I wouldn't be able to afford let alone find such great Bibles. Read the other reviews on the KJV Easy Reader and hopefully you'll find you need this resource. There are many great things about this Bible...discover that for yourself.
I did not know this bible was available or I would have had it before now. I purchased the genuine leather burgundy from CBD and it's a bright beautiful burgundy...not that ugly dark burgundy that some are. Reading it is AWESOME! So much to say but in short, it's so easy to read and it tells what more difficult words (underlined) mean in our language (in smaller print at the end of the verse). Excellent idea! Mine is the personal size and I am 56 and the words are large, bright, and easy to read. There are words in red in the O. T. It has articles. So much more. Now that my husband sees it...he has to get one too. This KJVer is an easy reader.
If you're having trouble reading the original KJ this bible is for you They took out all the old language and left the format the same With God's words in red it is really great to read the old testament and see when God is talking one of the best bible I have read
I bought one for myself really loved it. i showed it to my sister and friend they loved it then I ordered one for each of them for christmas. I use this one all the time. loving all the words of God highlighted in the old testament and the large print. i have many Bibles but I use this one all the time.
This is my favorite Bible off all time (and I've had, and still own, several translations.) Authorized King James Version is the most accurate, trustworthy translation of God's Word in the English language, but with it's archaic language, makes it a challenge for new believers, or those who didn't grow up with King James' Bibles. This bridges that gap and gives the trusted translation, yet edits the archaic words like "ye" and "thou" to modern equivalents, and keeps the others, but with underlining and simple definitions within the end of each verse. There's other great additions in the back of the Bible, too! I love it and recommend it to everyone.
