Format: Relié
This book is my favourite of all English versions of the Bible. This is true for many; in fact, for many, there is no other English version of the Bible with legitimacy. In fact, there are some for whom there is no other version of the Bible, in any language (even the originals) that has the validity of the KJV. Therein lies a bit of a problem, but not one that should destroy the sense of wonder in this book.
**Why I love the King James Version**
The spirit that permeates this book is astounding. This book was produced at the height of the flowering of the English language, roughly contemporary with Shakespeare. Whereas Shakespeare used the full breadth of the language, the King James Version of the Bible has a remarkable economy of language, with many fewer than 10,000 words, making this a wonderfully accessible book to the common people, who largely did not have schooling, nor a handy dictionary to look up unfamiliar terms.
During the give and take of formation and reformation and evolution of the church in England, revisions of the prayerbook, worship practice, and other elements were fairly commonplace. The idea of putting the Bible into the vernacular (up to this point the church had been using the Latin Vulgate edition, which the rest of western Christendom) sparked controversy -- shouldn't a universal message be shared in a universal language? This is an argument that would keep the Roman Catholic Church Latin in liturgy up until this century. The earliest translators of the Bible into English were a persecuted lot because of this philosophy; indeed, some were even burned at the stake as heretics.

As far as the text is concerned, nothing to say, it's King James Version of the Holy Bible (the Old and New Testaments are included).
The cover is a leather imitation, the book seems of a good quality. The paper used is very thin, because made partially of recycled paper, and the result is that the book is quite thin for a 1300 page book.
For the price, I can't think of any bad points about it.

Bloodier than Freddy vs. Jason vs. Chuckie...all wrapped up in one book! 26 septembre 2008
Par fritistat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is the epic story of a bumbling demiurge that just can't seem to catch a break when it comes to fixing his own vast comedy of errors. The book's protagonist is introduced quite expeditiously by the authors. Within the first few pages, he is masterfully portrayed as a jealous, merciless, bloodthirsty egomaniac. His twisted and sadistic narcissism is generously peppered throughout the story; he suffers from seemingly random fits of depravity and rage that result in mass genocide, misogyny, rape, incest, torture, human sacrifice, and gruesome dismemberment.

At the onset of the story, he creates a beautiful planet, which he almost immediately allows to become tainted with evil, suffering, and death. He decides to try his hand at creating beings with free will, who quickly turn around and reject him. He punishes the evildoers and the wicked, but this miserably fails at thwarting the spread of evil. The planet soon becomes so corrupted and polluted that he must drown nearly every life form on the planet, including women, children and infants. After the waters subside, the patriarch of the remaining survivors promptly gets drunk, then passes out naked inside his tent.

Though this global flood had been sent to eradicate evil, it utterly failed to do so. The remaining survivors and their descendants spread throughout the land, and within a matter of years, forgot entirely about god, becoming just as wicked as the people that god had earlier drowned.

He then arbitrarily adopts a tribe of goat herders as his "people" and persistently attempts to redeem them from their fallen grace. He somehow forgets about his promise to protect his "people", and they are almost immediately enslaved by the Egyptians. Over hundreds of years, the majority of these people were born as slaves, and also died as such, waiting for a deliverance that was little more than a lie. Our protagonist never even explains why he allowed this to happen. Before he finally does decide to free his people, he deliberately coerces the leader of Egypt to refuse the Israelites' pleas for freedom by "hardening his heart". Following numerous pestilences and the slaughter of tens of thousands of innocent firstborn Egyptian children, god finally frees his people...and immediately strands them in a desert for four decades.

During this time, he burdens them with an exhaustive list of tenuous rules: What kind of clothes to wear, what kind of food/meat they were allowed to eat, how to sacrifice animals to him, what days they were allowed to work, instructions on mutilating their genitals for him, etc. He addresses those who contravene his arbitrary rules by exploding into tantrums, killing not just the offender, but frequently scores of innocent people around him. At one point, god deliberately allows his arch-nemesis to mercilessly torment one of his most devout followers, simply to win a bet and satisfy his own bottomless ego.

His flamboyant final attempt to save the world from its transgressions was to impregnate a Jewish teenager with himself so he could sacrifice himself to himself in order to sit beside himself in order to save the world from himself because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat fruit from a magical tree. After waking up from the dead, god promises to return to earth before his newly assembled fan club dies out. He utterly fails to do this, so they create a new religion called Christianity, and the church that was formed almost immediately splintered into several squabbling sects because they could not agree as to what their god wanted.

At this point, God could have simply straightened this mess up by telling his followers what he wanted. True to form, he fails to do so; in fact, he decides to completely stop talking to his people.

Ultimately, our main character's promise to return to earth so he can ultimately straighten up humankind has proven to be empty. But when he does, he's going to throw a temper tantrum to end all tantrums and kill the vast majority of people on the planet (again). Unfortunately, this time around, the people wont really be dead because their souls will be undergoing eternal torment in hell.

Overall, the story itself is a contradictory, disjointed, and overall incoherent work. But if you enjoy slasher flicks (and don't mind a similarly thin plot), it's worth two bloody thumbs up.

an excellent value 8 avril 2004
Par Alejandra Vernon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Sturdy and quite heavy for its size, this no-frills Bible is an excellent value, and would make a very good second or third Bible. Well constructed with an imitation leather look on the cover, the font size is not large, but it is in bold print, and very readable and easy on the eyes.
What it has:
A presentation page.
"Daily Bible Readings," giving a table of three systems for reading the Bible in one year.
A seven page history of the Bible, and how the King James Version came to be. First published in 1611, there were several subsequent revisions, and the version we read today is most like the 1769 revision.
What it does not have that you would likely find in a better quality Bible:
It has no cross-references, making it a poor Bible for study.
The words of Jesus are not printed in red.
It has no concordance.
No maps.
No ribbon marker.

Many people use a modern language Bible for study, enabling greater clarity and understanding (and I recommend the New King James Version, or the one I have used for years, the Amplified Bible), but the King James Version is nevertheless glorious in its language, should be read at least once in a lifetime, and is invaluable for comparison of texts, and though I feel it is a sadly short-sighted view, some consider the King James Version as simply great "literature," comparing it to Shakespeare, and read it only for the beauty of its prose.
Due to this edition not having cross-references, it does not make a good primary Bible, but will be more than adequate as a secondary translation, and the King James Bible is a version one should definitely own.

Psalm 66:19
King James Version: "But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer."
New King James Version: "But certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer."
Amplified Bible: "But certainly God has heard me; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer."

Worst fantasy novel ever 18 août 2008
Par Christopher Sommer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In all seriousness, this book could stand a better editor. The plot is meandering, at best, and major characters lack any real motivation, and worse yet, will vanish for huge swaths of time with no explanation. The author is also guilty of constantly writing himself into corners and needing to employ dues ex machinas to repair his faulty story.

I would suggest readers instead look into other popular fantasy stories, such as George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire books, or even the classic stand by, The Lord of the Rings.

Terrible syntax, vocab, continuity 21 février 2005
Par Jason! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I heard this was "the top bestseller of all time" so I figured I should give it a glance. Boy is this a test of patience!

First of all there seems to be a million different versions of The Bible to choose from, so settling down on just one is a little difficult. How would I know which one is the best? Eenie-meenie-miney-moe saves the day.

This particular version is extremely difficult to follow due to what I'm assuming is a translation issue. The syntax is similar to poorly translated Kung-fu movies, but on top of that there are many words that appear to be completely made up. Then there is the disregard for continuity in the story. That alone makes it extremely hard to follow, but coupled with the other problems mentioned I would suggest just about any other fantasy story over The Bible, such as Lord of the Rings or The Matrix if you're into robots.

The first half of the book is the hardest to follow. It starts out with the main character, God, creates an entire universe. Thats pretty neat, but there aren't many details to make all that fantastic. This is only the beginning of such neglections. The author (who isn't listed, ANYWHERE) focuses most of the first half of the book on geneologies. At first I figured the purpose of this was to lead up to some pivotal character, but the lists of names go off in so many directions its impossible to keep track of. On top of that there's rampant inbreeding! I mean there is way, way, way too much inbreeding to be considered realistic. In real life the amount of inbreeding in The Bible would lead to diseases and birth defects that would never allow the offspring to live to reproduce so the story is a little hard to take seriously even if it is a universe of his own design. But hey, this is fiction so there's no point in nit-picking, just makes for a boring read. There's also alot of instructions from God given to the people he creates. Do this, don't do that. Build this out of this, this, and that and make sure to use very specific materials...etc. Most of that stuff is never explained so you end up wasting your time even reading it.

There's this one section worth mentioning in hopes of explaining the type of consistency in the story: God floods the whole world that he created because he got mad at all the people in it, but he tells one guy to gather his family and specimins of every animal God created so that they live after the flood. Now, if God can just create things at will, why doesn't he just kill everything and create all new people and animals? Who knows...instead he gets this guy, Noah, to build a boat and gather all the animals onto it. Thousands of animals...on a wooden boat...with enough food to last them 40 days. Then after the flood recedes, one of Noah's sons goes off and settles down with a group of people. Why didn't the flood kill these people off???? Who ever wrote and editted The Bible should quit their job, seriously.

The second half of the book introduces some new characters, most importantly Jesus Christ who seems to be based on Buddha. Here's a confusing part that is never really clarified. Jesus is the son of Mary and Joseph, but he is also referred to as the son of God. Which is it? It seems like the author couldn't decide so every other time the topic comes up he switches back and forth. That is a little annoying. Now there seems to be quite a cult following of this guy in real life. Sorta like the Rocky Horror Picture show, but people actually have churches dedicated to him! Talk about fan-atics! Anyway, Jesus goes around teaching people about right and wrong, sorta like Buddha teaching the way to enlightenment. This is all conveyed through second-hand accounts by his posse. Why the author choose this approach is interesting. Maybe he thought it would keep the reader at the right distance from the character. Anyway, if Jesus is the protagonist then the antagonist would surely be Satan. He has alot of different names in The Bible, normally people who use an alias are hiding from something but that is never stated in the book. Satan is quite a trouble maker. He tempts people into doing bad things and even tempts Jesus but Jesus resists his charm, just like when Mara tried to use seduction on Buddha and Buddha resisted. Little good this does Jesus because he is killed later for leading a revolution (unlike Buddha).

In this book all the characters believe in an afterlife which is either set in "Heaven" which is good, or "Hell" which is bad. This is another point of confusion in the book. Besides the contradicting criteria for one's entrance to heaven, God is supposed to be all-powerful, yet he creates Jesus to be the king of heaven...God lives in heaven and you would think that he would be the king since he made the place, but no. The whole book is filled with contradictions like this and breaks in continuity. Its really quite frustrating. I'm assuming all the different versions of The Bible are attempts to rectify some of these problems but quite frankly I'm so annoyed that I don't really feel like dealing with more of this book.

The Bible ends with alot of violence and destruction. There's more destruction than there was inbreeding in the beginning of the book. It turns out that God and Satan are really just competing in a popularity contest to see who can get the most people on his side. God is such a poor sport that he destroys whole cities if they don't join his side. The author aligns God with whats morally good, and Satan with whats morally bad. Why a being who's morally good would throw such a hissy fit over popularity is a little odd, but again it's fiction so anything goes I guess.

I say even though there are some lessons about good and bad buried under all the bad grammer and inconsistencies, don't bother putting yourself through the turmoil of trying to follow this book. If you're into fantasy stories there are plenty other better written books out there. And if you just want to learn about morality and life, I suggest picking up anything from Thich Nhat Hamh ot the Dali Lama. English isn't even their first language and they can write better than whoever wrote The Bible.

Wait for the movie... 23 janvier 2009
Par Thomas Underhill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
If you must read this book, just check it out from a library or borrow it- you wont pick it up again.

I just couldn't suspend my disbelief long enough. This "God" character loves us, doesn't love us, loves us... He just needs to make up his mind. In that respect (and more) he's not a very well thought out character. Him and the Jesus fellow. I first thought he was his son, but then he turns out to be him... but still his son... It kinda seems like the author just stole that idea from "Fight Club" but butchered it.

Just wait for the movie, hopefully the special effects will save this awful book.
