Help Me
 
I am looking to order a KJV Bible but am having trouble finding one for a reasonable price on the internet. I came across a couple that I will link you too.

There's this one: http://www.christianbook.com/Christi...1&item_code=WW
This one: https://shop.avpublications.com/prod...271eb08fc34082

I'm just not sure which one is going to be the best value for me, please give me some insight if you can.

In Christ,

Jordan

Any King James Bible will be fine. All you need is the holy text itself, the extras are, well, extras. As far as cost goes, you can get a paperback KJB for $3 at a nearby store-since it has nothing that is copyrighted, just the reprinting of holy writ.

I bought and use this Bible.

1 map. No crossrefrences, no notes. Bible Dictionary in the back. Nothing else except inspiration.

Is the text hard to read in that? Also did you visit the links I posted?

For a fellow teenager, it should be very easy to read-I can read it perfectly with or without my glasses. If low cost is what you are looking for, that's a great pick. The two you recommended look fine to me, they say the same thing.

There are a few misprints in most printings, the one that I showed you has two recorded errors. But really, they say the same thing, I would be more than comfortable to pick up any KJB and say "This is the Word of God!"

Oh alright cool. Is it your regular Bible that you use?

Paladin54 05-07-2008 09:40 PM

It is.

Jordan 05-07-2008 09:41 PM

I heard the imitation leather isn't really that comfortable to read out of...thoughts?:confused:

Also is it the authorized KJV version? (the 1769 version or whatever)

Paladin54 05-07-2008 10:33 PM

Technically speaking the 1611 is the Authorized Version, however, unless you like reading Gothic print (as I read a 1611 for a year, which I don't suggest) the one that I recommended is a 1873. The reason why its AV1611.com is because the 1611 was the first printing of the King James Bible. The changes in the text throughout 300 years is almost in every single case spelling updates (Fear is no longer spelled feare, and Jesus is no longer spelled Iesus, and no more do 'v's look like 'u's, nor do 's' look like 'f's.
