The Treasure of God's Word: Celebrating 400 Years of the King James Bible

Title: THE TREASURE OF GOD’S WORD: Celebrating 400 Years of the King James Bible
Compiled by: Jack Countryman

ISBN: 978-1-4041-8976-8
Genre: Inspirational/Christian life

The King James Bible has been almost a pillar in Christian homes and churches for the last 400 years. It is a monument to the history of the English language, and a classic book of literature.

THE TREASURE OF GOD’S WORD helps readers understand how the KJV came to be, the apocrypha of the KJV, the translation process, the influence of the KJV, and revisions, plus other information.

Not only that, but THE TREASURE OF GOD’S WORD is divided up so that it highlights some of the great passages of the KJV which bring to light God’s love, care, compassion, etc.

This book is not exactly what I expected. I didn’t expect it to be your typical gift book – where would you find verses on hope, forgiveness, etc. I was expecting more on the history of the KJV. So in that regard, this book was a disappointment to me.

If you or someone you love is totally devoted to the KJV, then this is the book for them. They will enjoy the beautifully bound hardcover book, and the gold edged pages. They will also appreciate the beautiful word of God printed on antiqued-colored pages.

This book will make a beautiful gift for pastor’s appreciation, baptism, or would be a good addition to a church library or home library. $16.99 hardcover. 105 pages.
