Beautiful bible, wonderfully illustrated by Gustave Dore. Virtually no notes so its for reading. Time is quite readable, profusely illustrated which enhances the reading experience to no end. The only thing I didn't like about the book is the ribbon marker, it needs two and a little more care could have been put into the marker. That being said, its well worth the money and I'm enjoying it immensely. Highly recommend.

I would love to have given this Bible 5 stars. It is an absolutely gorgeous edition; heavy and substantive just as one would think a Bible should be. The illustrations remind me of my grandmother's old Bible. I normally use an NRSV for my regular study and reading. But this year I decided I would read through the KJV once again in order to recapture for myself the beauty of the language and the cadences rendered by the translators. But alas, no! Just this morning as I was reading one of the Psalms, I came across a verse missing an entire sentence! I thought surely not. The only reason I caught it was because the verse suddenly made no sense. Something didn't feel right. I looked it up and discovered the missing line. So disappointing because now I don't know if that is the only one, and it cheapens what is otherwise a great effort to publish a quality Bible that is also affordable. Perhaps there will be another edition correcting the errors of this one. I noted that it is printed in China. Perhaps therein lies the problem.

    It is a wonderful bible and it is a great purchase for your collection. There is one flaw and that is the ink of the cover was coming off on my finger tips and getting on the pages. I thought i was bleeding and i discovered that it was ink, so i wiped down the cover with a rag and water. I got red finger prints on a few pages before i realized the situations. I really recommend wipe down the cover with a cloth.
