"Genius, as they say, is often manifest in the
ability to see the obvious. A small Bible publishing
company in South Dakota has proved the point. They have
updated the original 1611 King James Bible...this
updating of one of our language's greatest and most basic
classics is a Godsend for those who delight in and
cherish the traditional devotional language of English-
people...in every instance this text is faithful to its
English prototype. More than anything else, this Bible is
utterly and completely devoid of the loose translation,
tampering with the Word of God, and blatant politically-

This writer...feels that this is a work that today's
conservative Christians need."
"The 21st Century King James Bible (KJ21)
is completely trustworthy and should be encouraged for
use by children, by adults, for devotional use and for

because they will not have to take precious lesson or

as I do, and yet you realize there are a few places where
it needs to be updated to be understandable today, you

updating...beautiful in appearance and well made."
"There is only one question to be asked about the
KJ21 Bible: Why did it take someone so long to think of

the New King James Version or even the RSV,
for example, look like radical facelifts by
"I have been using the NIV, but have not
