According to Wikipedia: "The Authorized King James Version is an English translation of the Christian Bible begun in 1604 and first published in 1611 by the Church of England. The Great Bible was the first "authorized version" issued by the Church of England in the reign of King Henry VIII.[3] In January 1604, King James I of England convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations as detected by the Puritans, a faction within the Church of England. The king gave the translators instructions designed to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its beliefs about an ordained clergy. The translation was by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England."

    If reading on a Nook - get a PDF

    Since others have pointed out that this book is not worth the .99, allow me to offer an alternative.

    The KJV Bible, in a basic text format, is available for free. You can download a PDF of the King James Version here - http://www.basicchristian.org/HolyBible.pdf. I put this on my Nook and it does fine. Very readable and very fast. The formatting at larger text sizes is slightly off, but that is a very minor issue.

    Awful formatting makes it awkward to read

    Since it was my first download, I thought that either I had done something wrong or that my new Nook was already broken. I'm deleting it from my library.

    Troubling Navigation. There is a Better One Available.

    The words, since they are the King James Version, is wonderful. But the navigation leaves something to be desired. The Holy Bible - King James 400th Anniversary Edition (With Pro Nav Links!) from Barnes and Noble's NookBook section is by far the best navigation I have used.

    DO NOT PURCHASE

    It is impossible to navigate to chapters. You must go page by page. Buy a bible that you can go straight to chapters. I don't have hours to look for one verse.

    Don't waste your money.

    This is one of the worst bible editions I have ever seen, do not download it. It does not give you the whole bible, it also does not seem to be set up to be used on Nook.

    The chapters don't work correctly--I try to go to Matthew, and it takes me to the Apocrypha.

    Don't waste your time

    I downloaded this straight to my nook and the format is horrible. I can only get a max of three to five sentences per page!!! And it is very, very slow to pull up. Page turns are slow too. Most would attribute this to the size but I'm currently reading The Stand unabridged on my nook and it loads very quickly.

    Very Disappointed

    I wished I would have read the reviews on this before I even spent 99 cent on it. I figured I couldn't go wrong with a dollar. All I wanted was the basic bible, not that Apocrypha. Tried to use it in Bible Study and got no where. Good thing I had my blackberry with me.

    King James Bible

    I am going to delete it from my library. I'm glad I only paid 99cents. I do not need nor want Apocrypha. I just wanted the standard old and new testament.
