The King James Version, or KJV, Bible is has been a trusted translation of God's Word for well over 400 years. The KJV captures the majesty of God’s Word and shapes the worship of generations.

While some of the language used in the KJV translation sounds odd to us now, there is still a beauty in the Words. says, "Today, 'thou' sounds strange and formal to us, but it was once a sign of closeness. In early modern English, there were two forms of you, as there still are in many other languages, such as Spanish, French, and German. 'You' was plural, but it was also used to show respect or formality. 'Thou' was singular, but it was only used with close friends, family, or subordinates." I love this because it shows how God is speaking directly and personally to us through His Word.

I love using a study Bible to help me do more than just read but actually study the Word. Holman Bibles has a beautiful KJV Study Bible that I am loving! This stunning leather bound Bible features:

-Introductions and outlines for each book, including background information, theological themes, and insights into the unique contribution of each book
-High-quality smyth-sewn binding that allows the pages to lay open for easy reading and studying
-Easy-to-read layout with two columns of text, 9-point type size, words of Christ in red, page edge cross-references, and three columns of study notes
-Full-color visuals to help you see the structure and context of Scripture come alive, including 123 photographs, 58 maps, 19 illustrations/reconstructions, 19 charts, and 60 timelines
-20 full-length articles on practical and theological issues, including the origin and transmission of the Bible
-Concordance and “King’s English” glossary of terms and 17th-century expressions
-One-year and three-year Bible reading plans

While I love a study Bible, sometimes it is easier to carry a smaller Bible to church or in the car. That is why I am also loving the KJV Ultrathin Reference Bible. This Bible is easy-to-carry and easy-to-read, and features:

-Center-column cross-reference system
-Full color maps
-An ultrathin design which slips easily into a purse, briefcase, or backpack
