Customer Reviews of Holy Bible: King James Version
I frequently recommend this Bible, especially to people like me, whose eyes would glaze over whenever I tried to read a King James version. This Bible is in today's, regular english and I love the concordance section (it's a glossary and index by subject).
For someone who had never read more than a few paragraphs of the Bible, it was amazing that besides being ABLE to read the entire thing, I couldn't put it down once I got into it!! I checked off the table of contents after I completed each "book" that's how I know that I read the whole thing.
This is a great Bible for any age. For beginners, I recommend starting with "Proverbs," it's just little snippets of wisdom. God Bless.
This is to be a graduation gift for my daughter and so far I believe it is an awsome reference for her.
I find this bible handy for reading the "assigned" chapters each day. Having it all arranged in a book is convienient and keeps me going. However, it's a pain to use as a reference. Because it arranges the text in four parallel tracks (OT, psalms, proverbs, NT- there is a little bit of each every day) it's hard to find specific verses.
This is the Bible for you!
This Bible has changed my life! I have tried on numerous occasions to read the Bible through and I always end up getting mired down in all the geneologies and laws that I end up quitting somewhere around Exodus! I saw an advertisement for this Bible in a magazine and went right down to my local bookstore and bought it. I haven't put it down since! The New Living Translation is so user-friendly that even a child can understand it! Each day's reading is dated but if you're like me, once you start reading this Bible, you'll end up reading 4 or 5 passages a day instead of just one! This Bible is a must for anyone who has ever wanted to read the Bible through. Trust me, there is a way and The One Year Bible is it!
Excellent way to read through God's Word!
I was blessed to stumble on this little gem in my local used bookstore. I was especially impressed that it uses a New King James Version translation, which is both accurate to the original text and easy to read (the introduction states that the NKJV is on an eighth-grade reading level).
Each day's reading of the Bible is divided into two chapters from the Old Testament, one Psalm, two Proverbs, and one chapter from the New Testament. Then, there is a short devotional reading, which is based on one of the chapters you just read. Lastly, there is a thought-for-the-day, which is my favorite part of this book. Instead of some random, cheesy line, this book's thought-for-the-day is a Bible verse that relates to what you just read. This helps you understand, and hopefully apply, what you have read to your own heart, and it is all based on Scripture. Great!
I really recommend this version of the Daily Bible to anyone who wants to start committing a little part of each day to the Lord and His Word.
