KJV Personal Size Giant Print Reference Bible, imitation leather, black/tan
THIS BIBLE IS NOT THE REAL KING JAMES VERSION!
Not long ago, I discovered that there are several publishers that publish bibles they promote as the King James Version, when in fact, they are counterfeits. This KJV Personal Size Giant Print Reference Bible is a perfect example of this counterfeiting.
Please note that I have found that the publishers Hendrickson and also Zondervan have altered the King James text in the scripture found at Hebrews chapter 10 verse 23.
The REAL King James text states the folowing:
"Let us hold fast the profession of our FAITH without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)"
The counterfeit versions, such as the one being reviewed here, state the following:
"Let us hold fast the profession of our HOPE without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)"
As you can see, they have altered the text and changed the word FAITH to HOPE (and I'm guessing there will likely be more alterations of the text found). This is absolutely unacceptable to me as the KJV text should not be altered in any way with the publisher continuing to purport it to be the same KJV that many have come to love over the years.
Simply put....this bible, and many others like it from the publishers Hendrickson and Zondervan, are counterfeits.

Good quality bible
Good sturdy compact bible. However, in my opinion, I would not call it giant print; but the print is large enough for my purposes.

Ink smells awful
The Bible is an Excellent product, and I love it, except it was made in China, so has that familiar horrible smell that Chinese products sometimes do-- either from pesticides used in packing crates, or soy ink, or something I have yet to identify. I have had the same odor problem before, with products ordered from Great Britain, but made in China. I used a half a bottle, 3 oz, of a Very expensive floral cologne on every other page, and that solved the problem. I was concerned the ink might run, but it did not, and I was careful to air each page and leave the Bible sitting on edge and fanned open for several days. It is the best smelling Bible in town, I guarantee it! If not for the smell, I would give the product a 5 in all categories. It is amazingly affordable, I have found No errors so far, the cover is flexible and soft as calf leather. The size of the type is adequate to be read without glasses and with readers, is quite large and crisp. I could not possibly send this as a gift, because of the smell, which is shocking. Aside from the 700 sprays of cologne, I only know to place the book open on edge in a sealed can atop kitty littler, and fan the pages once a week for several months, which works with old and musty books and might work with this horrid Chinese odor. Sorry not to be able to rave as much as I would like about the product, which is outstanding! I think most people would have sent it back :(
