If you've tried to read the Bible but struggled to get very far, then this is the book for you!
In this series you'll find the complete text of the King James Bible presented in a fresh clear format. The distracting chapter and verse numbering has been removed, and the text has been reorganised into natural paragraphs. In addition, dialog has been clearly emphasised instead of being simply embedded into the body of the text. So now each of the stories can once again be read in the way the original authors intended, as a free flowing narrative.
The book is illustrated with beautiful biblical paintings, and includes maps of the area in which the events took place.
Whether you're a devout christian, a curious reader from another faith, or a secular reader interested in the world's most popular and influential book, this new 'readable' adaptation of the Bible will help you quickly and enjoyably achieve a fuller understanding of the biblical stories, characters and events.
