The Simplified KJV [Wildflower Medley] Hardcover

 My Thoughts:  WOW!  This Bible is super!  I really have no words to describe how beautiful it is.  

It's a nice size too so the pages are big enough that there is room to write or draw in the margins.  It will make a nice journaling Bible. It's hard back so the pages don't get messed up. But best of all Barbour has simplified the King James and Barbour's Simplified KJV builds off the familiarity and trustworthiness of the King James Bible while removing the difficulties of antiquated language and punctuation. 

Keeping all the original translation work of the 1611 Bible, the Simplified KJV carefully updates old styles that may interfere with your understanding today: 

  • outdated verb styles are refreshed--for example, art becomes aregavest becomes gave
  • old forms of address--like theethou, and ye--are updated
  • confusing older terms--such as wroth or divers--are modernized
  • pronouns for God--He, His, Him, You, Yours, Me, My--are capitalized for clarity
  • quotation marks are included with spoken language
  • long sentences are shortened with modern punctuation
  • paragraphs are added throughout

I love  this Bible!  It's truly in a class by itself.

*This Bible was provided for review by Barbour*

It's available at Amazon
