THE KING JAMES STUDY BIBLE - FULL COLOR EDITION



At this point in my life I can say that I have every translation of a Bible that I want. Now when I obtain a new Bible it is for the additional information provided thus the presentation of Thomas Nelson’s latest contribution to the Bible Geeks of the world: “THE KING JAMES VERSION STUDY BIBLE, FULL COLOR EDITION” really intrigued me.

It is interesting to note that I have recently decided to go back to the basics of Scripture reading which includes reading the King James more than the New King James version of the Bible.

 There are four aspects of this Bible I am looking at: graphics, commentary, cross reference, and of course readability.

I think most of us take the maps for granted and a picture here and there throughout a Bible is a bonus. The images in THE KING JAMES VERSION BIBLE, is truly more than what I was expecting. Archeological finds, pictures that relate to the text and of course the maps. The images definately help make the text relevant.

The comments found at the bottom of the page help put various passages in context by defining various words. They also present information to help the reader understand the relevance to what was written.

Finally it is good to know  that in this version of The KING JAMES VERSION STUDY BIBLE Cross reference are available for various verses. There are also alternative translations of words or phrases.  A bonus is the Hebrew and Greek names of God found in the comment section.

This is by far the best Bible ever! (I might have said that before but it really is good.) Though I often give away the Bibles I review this one is definately a keeper / user. I love it.   - -  written by Marsha L F Randolph

GIVING IT ALL AWAY by David Green with Bill High



GET THIS BOOK! Written by David Green, Founder & CEO of Hobby Lobby, with Bill High, Lawyer and CEO of the National Christian Foundation Heartland; GIVING IT ALL AWAY . . . And Getting It All Back Again - The Way of Living Generously is all that and more.  But, you have to know I am a Hobby Lobby fan!
GIVING IT ALL AWAY presents the principles the Green family live by in a way that is doable for any one who wants to succeed in life and business. In one-hundred fifty three pages the reader is presented with bullions (not nuggets) of wisdom. If you like to underline important tidbits in a book get ready to color code it.
Beginning with the Forward I was captured by the information presented. The book is divided into 5 parts with concepts presented in chapters. The book is actually 189 pages, there are three pages of notes at the end however there is also a “Readers Guide” which is where you will find a brief discussion of a chapter, concepts to reflect upon and discussion questions. A great book for personal reading as well as Bible Study.
GIVING IT ALL AWAY is a book written by a businessman who did not compromise his faith but lived to the best of his ability as a man of God. As believers we are blessed to be a blessing and this book tells you how to do it. BUY IT!  —written by Marsha L F Randolph
