I just finished two years of teaching early morning seminary, Hebrew Bible last year and the New Testament this year. We used the KJV in class, but I also appreciated the help of my Harper Collins Study Bible, which uses the NRSV translation. I'm not going to pretend to give a review of the Bible. Spoiler alert: it's really good. ( )

You might wonder just why would I waste my time doing a review on the Bible as many people already know what it is about. The truth is I do this review because I am not religious at all in fact I do not even know if the version of the Bible I have is the same as up here and the only time I go to church is when my wife asks me and even than I find a way to sneak away from parts of the sermon. No I am doing a review because recently I have been reading books on self affirmations, and manifestation etc etc. How is this connected? Well upon reading the bible I have found out that many of these books like Think and Grow Rich, The Science of Getting Rich etc refer back to passages from the Bible. So I just found it fascinating that a book written so long ago already covers subject matter that seems to be in such hot demand now days. Maybe there is something to this after all. Why the 4 start well there are parts I really do not understand in there and also there are parts that I think you should not take literally or no longer applies to the modern world. ( )

An interesting book, or library of books, really. As with any anthology, some authors keep things moving along and toss about some really interesting ideas but others haven't really earned their place. Especially those who pad out their narrative with family trees! (but the other reviewer here obviously enjoys those, so it's obviously a book with a wide appeal which is really good really).
Anyway I've a feeling everything is working towards a BIG finale but I'm still some way away from that. ( )

I'm not done, I'm only on chapter 19! I haven't met Joseph yet! He's not going to appear until chapter 50 of Genesis. And then he appears again in the new testament as the Saint Joseph, and then he is going to appear again in the third testament known as the Book of Mormon as Joseph Smith. As with Jacob. Jacob and Joseph return in the Book of Mormon. Now where were we, or where are we in my life? I think we passed them all. I'm on mine. 4th testament=me. 26 or book 3 and it has I just/only want to use an e-book reader all over it! Blondes did read it, but it is easier and faster! You can believe them and trust them.

Face it, Humanity: We deserve each other. Jesus was just in it to get laid. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0840700415, Hardcover)

Shortly after inheriting the throne of England in the midst of violent religious strife, King James I called together the country's leading churchmen and theologians at Hampton Court, "for the hearing, and for the determining, of things pretended to be amiss in the Church."

Out of that conference came the memorable decision to commission a new translation of the Holy Scriptures. King James I eagerly approved the idea in the hope that this new translation might help avert civil war by uniting the religious factions within his country. The uniform translation, since called the "King James Version," dramatically affected the course of development of the English-speaking world.

Nelson's reprint of the King James Version of the Bible is a faithful reproduction of the original text set in modern typeface for better readability. The decorative initials and border designs are from a 1911 edition.
