Here, in easy-to-read, self-pronouncing type, is the King James Version of The Holy Bible . A favorite for almost four centuries, this translation brings the extraordinary power and poetry of Scripture to vivid life. As literature, it is one of the supreme achievements of our language; as Scripture, it is simply incomparable. The text contains, in addition to the complete Old and New Testaments, a summary of each book of the Bible, an outline of New Testament history, a cross-referencing of the major events of Christ's life, a convenient explanation of ancient money, weights, and measures, a glossary of frequently used terms in Biblical scholarship, and other aids to reading, study, and prayer. The words of Christ, as quoted in the New Testament, are printed in red for easy distinction.
