    The KJV/MEV Parallel Bible from Passio.

    The KJV has been around for a little over 400 years and is quite well known. The MEV is supposed to be translated from the same source texts as the KJV so don't expect that many differences. This Bible came packed in a padded envelope. I would like to say that it arrived completely undamaged, but it did not. There are a couple bent corners. No big deal, but worth a mention, since all of the books I've received from Charisma House/Passio have been packaged the same way. The hardback Bible has a dust jacket that has the information a retail box would have on it. I don't use dust jackets, so that was not a big loss. The cover is black and has in gold on the spine, KJV KING JAMES VERSION under that is, Parallel Bible KJV/MEV and then, MEV MODERN ENGLISH VERSION PASSIO The attractive spine is hidden by the dust jacket. On the front cover the book is imprinted with the, PARALLEL BIBLE KJV/MEV. Once opened, you'll notice that it is, of course, case bound with 3 blank pages before the Title Page. This is followed by the copyright and publisher information page. Directly after that is the Table of Contents. Next we have The KJV Epistle Dedicatory page to King James. Next up is a Dedicatory page for the MEV to Queen Elizabeth II. (That is just kind of strange to me.) From there it is straight into the Old Testament. The KJV is printed on a slightly grayed out watermark to differentiate it from the MEV. The MEV is printed in the left column. The paper is pretty white, although it is excessively translucent. It is not near opaque enough. This doesn't help when the font is only a 6 pt. Font in size. The Bible was printed and bound in America and it does look like line matching was employed. It does offset the problem caused by the thin paper. The binding is sewn and flexible. If treated right it should last a long time. It seems to be a sturdy Bible. There are very limited notes, to the point of being nonexistent. If you purchased this Bible for that reason you will be disappointed. I guess that will teach you to look at the product descriptions more closely. The book titles, chapter and verse information are printed on the top outer corners of the pages, page numbers are at the top, center. It is a double column, black text format. There are no fancy features here to run the cost up. No gilt page edges, ribbon markers, or concordances here, just the text of the two versions, the only exception to that is the One Year Bible Reading Plan after Revelation.

    All in all it is a mediocre quality Bible with noting of interest to offer except the two versions in parallel, and that is probably all the reason you need to buy a copy. The American production quality is good and the printing is consistent and sharp. For the money you can afford to have one just to compare the translations. I would like to see this in a 4 way parallel with, KJV/MEV/NKJV/NASB. I think this would go a long ways for the textual criticism guys.

    I just received this Bible today, and although the font is very small ( looks like about 6 point font ), it is pretty easy to read. The print is dark, and even. The paper is bright white, and has a good texture. I would say that this is a worth while addition to your Bible library . CBD has made this a very affordable purchase, and the binding seems to be well done. I do not know how it will hold up to heavy use, and only time will tell.

    May God bless you in your study of HIS wonderful WORD.

    Excellent side by side comparison of text on each page. However, to accomplish this printing of this Bible, the letters or fonts are very, very small and you will need a bright light and possibly a magnifying glass. Also, the pages are tissue thin and it will take great care to turn the pages without tearing a page. I have a bright light and a magnifying glass, so with great care I will enjoy reading this Bible. I just thought this should be disclosed concerning the small print and tissue thin pages!
