    Perhaps the greatest book ever produced is the King James Version of the Bible. In 1611 the Authorized Version, as it has been called, was put together by translators in England at the request of King James. Wanting a Bible for English speakers, a Bible translation was commissioned and was finally finished in 1611.

    The history of this works is amazing. To see how God used men to carry forward His word so that the English speaker can know and have a relationship with God is awesome. For this reason, it is beneficial, in my mind, for the English speaker to understand the history of their English Bible.

    With this in mind, Hendrickson Publishers has put out a 1611 edition of the King James Version of the Bible. It is a preproduction of the 1611 edition of the Bible. The spelling has remained the same and the chapter headings and column headings are also the same. This may surprise a few English speakers to see that the Bible they have today that is called the King James Version is somewhat different from the Bible that was produced in 1611.

    I found reading this Bible was reading history. Seeing the spelling, chapter headings, and columnar headings gave me an appreciation for the level of work that was done and a respect for the reverence the translation had for the Bible.

    The font face is easy to read though it is not a large print so please keep that in mind. As I understand, the original size of the 1611 was large for todays Bible reader. This reproduction has a smaller size Bible than what one would have seen in 1611. Also, the 1611 spelling may take a bit to understand but once the reader has a good grasp on the spelling, reading this Bible does not take much effort. This does have the apocryphal text which is taken out of most modern translations. I don't have a problem with it because it was originally in the 1611 Bible.

    There are no maps, no concordances, and no book introductions. It is simply the Bible that was put together in 1611. However, there are some additional helps in the front that give the history of the 1611 Bible along with background information on it. Also there are the letters that were put together to King James from the translators, a letter to the reader from the translators, and there is also a reading plan for those reading the Bible throughout the year.

    Overall, I really enjoy this particular Bible for its historical perspective. To understand what was behind the English production of a Bible should help Christians have a deeper appreciation for the Word of God.

    I received a complimentary copy of this Bible from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    It is a great Bible to have and share. The history recorded in the front of the Bible is very informative. I recomend everyone get their own to see how this Bible was written/translated, and see for themselves the historical writing and lettering of that time and era. This original copy will clear up a lot of the myths and miss-quoats you may have heard about. Also, this font is much easier to read than others I've seen.

    First off I love it. The Good first, then the Bad: Great ultra thin paper :-) Great Binding :-) Easy to read font :-) fair introduction :-/ Now the Bad: One reason I got it was I am a researcher of the Occult. (Not a practitioner) As such the original 1611 was filled with Occult artwork (Including Masonic handshakes) and various Alchemical Imagery. This Bible was a disappointment as far as that artwork, as the overt Alchemical/Masonic/Rosicrucian pictures (Minus the title and New testament pages) were stripped or altered.
