Celebrate the most influential book in the history of English civilization!
Scholars have long agreed that one of the greatest influences in the shaping of the English language is the King James Version of the Bible. The Treasure of God's Word is a celebration of the King James Version's 400-year anniversary, continuing its legacy of inspiration to people in all walks of life. Scripture selections are divided into 45 topics that shed light on the vastness of God's love for each one of us, as well as articles outlining the history of the translation from its original 1611 to present-day versions. It's a 'treasure' that will bless anyone with a love for God's Word and a belief that His promises hold true today as they have through the centuries.
My review: The Treasure of God's Word Celebrating 400 years of The King James Bible compiled by Jack Countryman is a very eye catching book that has the feel of a much more expensive book that what it actually is. With a simulated leather cover and gold edged pages, along with pages that have the look of antique paper it would make an impressive gift.
Upon opening the book though I was a bit disappointed, what I expected was a history of the King James Bible but what the book really gives us is a compilation of scripture verses grouped together based on specific topics such as God's Love, God's Power, God's Comfort etc. There is a bit of history peppered throughout the book but it is dispersed between the sections of topical verses .It really shifts back and forth between verses and history. Personally I would have rather had all the history grouped together.
If your looking for a gift book, then this would be a great choice, otherwise if you own a KJV of the Bible you actually have most of the information contained in this book.
I was provided a copy of this book by Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.
my rating 2.5/5
