The King James Version of 1611 has been the most widely known and quoted version of the Bible over three centuries. Many people in this country and abroad have been brought up with the King James Version, and continue to read it with great affection throughout their lives. The Compact Reference Bible includes a presentation page, the Old and New Testaments, cross-references, a glossary of common words, a concordance, Bibles maps and gazetteer - and yet is small enough for the pocket. This particular Bible has the words of the Lord printed in red, and is bound in white bonded leather. The handy size of this Bible and its white leather cover and silver edges make this an ideal Bible for baptisms, confirmations and weddings.
