King James Study Bible, Full Color, Large Print; a review

From the moment I opened this Bible, I loved it.  The full color photos make it beautiful, the font is larger than normal without being too big, and there are just the right amount of extras to make it a good study Bible.

The photos and descriptions of each book of the Bible provides a look into what each book is about, who wrote it, the time in history it is written, etc.  I love the images from the Holy Land that make one feel they are actually there.  Not to mention the maps, article inserts, and even a section at the very beginning telling how to use this study Bible.

Some Features Include:
  • Center-column references with translation notes
  • Beautiful full-color pages and features
  • Hundreds of full-color maps, images, and charts
  • 5,700 authoritative and time-tested study notes
  • Over 100 archaeological notes
  • Over 100 personality profiles highlighting important figures in Scripture
  • More than 200 notes of important Christian doctrines
  • Book Introductions and outlines
  • Easy-to-navigate topical indexes
  • Hebrew and Greek word-study concordances

While the KJV of the Bible is not my primary version these days, I believe every home should have a copy.  For there is nothing like the beauty of the original King James, the poetry, and the Shakespearean quality of the wording.  Like many people my age, all of my early Bible memorization was from the King James.

Whether you need a King James Version in your own home or you know someone who would love such a beautiful Bible that uses this version already, I highly recommend this new study Bible.  It would make a lovely gift for anyone but especially that person in your life that would appreciate larger-than-normal fonts.

The one negative some may find with this Bible is the large size.  However, it would have to be this big to provide larger print as well as the study Bible features.

The King James Study Bible was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.

Further information can be found... here.  Although the Bible sent to me was a Bonded Leather edition, this link takes you to the hardcover edition.  If you scroll down, you will be able to view all options this Bible is available in as well as images from the inside.

We did all our missions training memorization in the King James Version. We use different versions for our personal reading.

This sounds like a nice Bible.

I have no fewer than 5 KJVs in the house, but you make this study Bible sound very appealing!
