KJV Standard Text Bible, French Morocco Leather, black
January 26, 2015
As Cambridge Bibles are basically the "Cadillac" of Bibles, I found this product to be well made. Even the very thin pages stand up to the test of highlighting key verses and passages when you use the Pigma Ink Pens. The Pigma Pens do not bleed through to the other side of the page. The size of the bible is just right...not too big, not too small. and as promised the more you use the bible the easier it is to have it lay flat when it is open. The price was great as well.
This is the 2nd Cambridge KJV Large Print Text Bible I bought from Christianbook.com. The print is so bold and large. There is not much ghosting on the page, so it is very easy on the eyes. It includes a very helpful self-pronouncing. The leather cover and binding are in good quality. Although this is not a wide-margin Bible, the margin spaces are enough for writing some references or even some short/small notes. I just wish there's a concordance included in this Bible. Highly recommended!
First off, Kennyg from Indianapolis is wrong...Spirit is capitalized in Gen 1:2. It is a genuine KJV (more accurately and originally named AV - Authorized Version. Who authorized it? God.) The leather cover is a bit stiff but I'm sure it will loosen up with use. My biggest disappointment is that it won't lay flat when opened. Frustrating when trying to study and reference other materials or take a sip of coffee. This Bible is 85% there (which is pretty good), but what I'm still looking for is a high quality binding that lays flat, text only, no references, no maps & concordances & study guides, etc., non-red letter, and lastly No italicized words. If the AV is the true Word of God (and it is), then every word the translators used is inspired and I don't need to be constantly bombarded with doubts about the content.
THIS IS NOT A KJV BIBLE! Sure, it says King James on it but Cambridge has been changing the text and therefore doctrine without notifying the reader. One of the clues is in Gen 1:2 where they changed "Spirit" to "spirit," removing the capitalization for the second person in the Trinity.
