KING JAMES VERSION
Available in Hardcover or Leather, Regular-size, Handy-size, or Large Print. (1611) The most popular translation ever produced, this Bible was done during the reign and at the urging of King James the First of England. 47 scholars, divided into 6 groups, worked on this translation.
Based largely on the Bishop's Bible, many Hebrew and Greek texts were also studied as well as all other available English translations, to insure the best results. By choosing men of many different theological and educational backgrounds, it was hoped individual prejudices of the translators could be minimized.
Printed in a handy size and in clear type, the KJV was supposed to please clergy and congregation alike. Despite initial resistance, the KJV became and still is the largest selling translation of the Bible.
NEW AMERICAN STANDARD
Available in Hardcover or Leather, Regular-size only. (1971) The Lockman Foundation of La Habra, California set out to produce the "Most technically accurate translation of the Bible possible."
Partially because of their dissatisfaction with the RSV's version of the 1901 American Standard Version, the Lockman Foundation chose to use the best Greek and Hebrew texts available to revise the ASV.
Though many conservative scholars consider this to be the most accurate translation available, because of the NAS's desire for technical accuracy it is not the most readable of the modern translations.
NEW KING JAMES VERSION
Available in Hardcover or Leather, Regular-size only. The beauty and accuracy of the KJV, in a contemporary, readable language. When a customer considers the important factors in choosing a Bible translation (accuracy, beauty, and ease of understanding) the choice is clear.
Only the New King James Version offers precision and clarity without sacrificing readability. Commissioned in 1975 by Thomas Nelson Publishers, 130 respected Bible scholars, church leaders, and lay Christians worked for seven years to create a completely new, modern translation of Scripture, yet one that would retain the purity and stylistic beauty of the original King James.
With unyielding faithfulness to the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic texts, the translators applied the most recent research in archaeology, linguistics, and textual studies. The result is a Bible that is both beautifully worded and trustworthy. Ideal for study, teaching, personal reading, and congregational use.
No wonder the NKJV over the last several years has consistently been the fastest-growing translation of the complete Bible, selected by more than 25 million customers since its release! The New King James Version is also the preferred translation of thousands of today's most prominent Christian leaders.
