I teach college level Bible classes and I absolutely love this Bible. I would highly recommend it to any one looking for deeper meaning or understanding of the word of God.

I am a pastor and have used this to some extent in the past years. When I read reviews on it I am truly surprised that folks complain about the KJV being the baseline text, claiming it is outdated and flawed. Nothing could be further from the truth. Still today there is no new translation that comes close to its accuracy and style. It remains the king of all English translations for a reason..... it is the best we have.... and it is accurate.... Others claim the NIV, TNIV (which is full of errors and translation problems) NASB (95) etc. are better and truer translations... my friends nothing could be further from the truth. I understand that many like the NIV and for minor reading I at times will look at it also, but be assured, you need to compare it to KJV and wherever there are obvious differences you need to go with KJV. This book fills an important gap. It uses the translation that has been battle tested for 400 years now. It gives you other time tested materials to do comparison studying while leaving out the generic teachings in NIV, TNIV, NASB etc. If you want to know about translations that take away from God's word (remember that God warns about this).. then see if your translation has Matthew 17:21, 18:11 etc in it. If not then the translators have "taken away from the word of God." They use the excuse that these verses are not in the manuscripts they used... this is true. What they haven't told you is that some of the manuscripts were trashed by Jerome and others 500 years ago because of the errors in them. There is a reason the KJV uses the received (textus receptus) manuscripts. These publishers may have needed to spell check better but that does not mean they changed anything. they just misspelled a word here and there. One of the things I like most is that the bible in question gives you other translations including Spraul to show that there are absolutely times where the translators let their doctrinal beliefs show and this is wrong to do. You shoul ...
