Need Help Selecting the perfect bible

Recommended Posts

So I need help selecting the perfect bible. I've been looking but haven't found my one yet. I want it to be sturdy, large, normal sized print. Not the really tiny print. Words of god in red. I would really like to have the reference topics in the back but I would be ok if someone knew of a bible topics book separate I'd really appreaciate it, please when you reply send link too.

I just recently saw a KJV Sword Study Bible.  It had large print, notations in the margins (word meanings explained)  I didn't have a lot of time so I didn't really get a chance to look it over to see what other goodies it might have.  I did read that this particular Bible has the words of God in red in both Testaments, which is something I've never seen.

The whole bible is the word of God

My wife has the KJV Study Bible that's put out by Thomas Nelson that meets all of your specifications and I've seen enough of the notes that I generally trust them. I say generally because I haven't read them all and can't say with certainty that there's not a weird one-off note in there somewhere. However, I do know one of the guys that worked on it and he is a sound theologian.

Birdlover, there are a variety of "giant print" and "large print" bible available at Christianbook.com  Here's a link (you asked for links):http://www.christianbook.com/Christian/Books/easy_find?Ntt=giant+print+bible+kjv&N=0&Ntk=keywords&action=Search&Ne=0&event=ESRCG&nav_search=1&cms=1

I have bought many books and gift bibles there, and their prices are generally better than other book stores I know of. 

I forgot to add... they also have reference bibles in giant print and large print as well.

So I got a bible that I really like. Its perfect for me except that it doesn't have a topic guide. I know I can always look up my "topic" online for bible references, but I'd like to have a physical topic guide to keep in my bible case for when I need guidence. Does anyone know of a topics book that is sold seperatly for a bible? For anyone who doesn't know what I mean, I use to have a teen study bible and in the back I could look up any word for example, fear, and it would give me a list of bible verses to help conquer fear, or anything I might be feeling. I have a bit of a struggle finding what I need in my bible and would like a help guide to my bible. Do they make anything like that? This is a site I use often, but would like something like this in hard copy. http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses/

Cambridge prints a normal size bible that I have used since 1976.....yes, the same bible since 1976. I use it hard and often and have had it rebound once. What I liked most about this bible is that it has a normal font that is bold. It was too hard trying to use the normal font found in most bibles because it is too small, but this bold font is just the ticket without having to go to large print, which I don't like.many large print bibles have to increase the actual size of the bible to accommodate the large print.

 

You can find the Cambridge bibles in most religious book stores, go look at one and you will see what I mean about how it makes the reading a lot easier on the eyes.

      I’ve been interested in starting one of those plans where you are sent a study on each part of the Bible every day, until you get through the whole book, in a year. Has anyone done one of these? I want to make sure I use one with Biblically sound studies. Has anyone followed one that they trust?

      Brethren,
      One of the main reasons why I joined OnLineBaptist was its adherence to the  King James Version of the Bible as the only version in the English language to be used as a scripture reference.
      Most of the folks here on OnLineBaptist know my stand for the KJV and my revulsion (yes, you read that correctly: revulsion), for any of the new versions (including the NKJV).
      After a thorough study of the issue (privately and up to a PhD in education), of the different versions of the Bible, I have long ago came to the conclusion that since the Revised Version (RV), of 1881 until the New King James Version (NKJV), all of these versions are corrupt in manuscript evidence, scholarship, integrity, and honestly.
      The current trend of folks using the newer versions on OnLineBaptist without the common courtesy to even mention which version they used, in my eyes, is deceitful. When a person signs on onto OnLineBaptist they know the rules concerning quoting from any version other than the KJV. So, in my eyes, the non-mentioning of which version they used is deliberate.
      Furthermore, intellectual honesty, a prerequisite for any serious Bible discussion, demands that the user of another person's material that is copyrighted to make known the material that they use. In the case of Bible versions, the abbreviated letters are enough; NIV, RV, RSV, NKJV, etc... This practice is well known, so, the usage of a non-KJV scripture passage, and not mentioning the version, in my eyes, is intellectually dis-honest. 
      Forgive me for being so blunt. To me this is a cardinal issue of extreme importance.
      Lastly, when an author makes a mistake, he should go back and correct that mistake. In the current case in point, the individuals who used a non-King James Version, needs to go back to every time they used the non-King James Version and either delete the reference, strike out the offending passage, or delete the entire passage.
      Regards,
      Alan

      What is everyone’s thoughts on the Thompson Chain Reference Bible? I really did not like it the first time I saw one, but now I’ve come to realize that it is a great tool for getting into God’s word and digging into it. I have found it stimulates my devotional reading and is very helpful for digging into the different topics in a particular text. I like that it causes you to just move around in the Bible day apart from some notes in the back it has basically no theological bias.

      I was wondering, does anyone know of a Bible translation, that is as accurate as the KJV, but has more modern writing?
