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.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
