The King James Version of 1611 has been the most widely known and quoted version of the Bible for four centuries, and has shaped both Western culture and the English language. The Standard Text Bible offers the text of the King James Version in an exceptionally clear and readable type. The size of the Bible makes it a handy buy for someone who wants a Bible with readable type, but which is nor too heavy or bulky to carry. This Bible has a glossary of 14 pages which explains some of the lesser known words of 17th Century English, and a Bible reading plan. Bound in a flexible French Morocco leather, the Standard Text Bible represents exceptional value.

Of all the famous Cambridge editions of the Bible this one is particularly handsome. The text is 'black print' with a very readable font and font size, and there is just the plain, pure text on each page with no distractions. If you want a classic, plain, pure and unadorned King James Bible this is the standard edition available. When I look at mine laying on the table right now it looks like it could've been in the pack-saddle of a conquistador in the New World, or on the work bench of John Bunyan, or in the hands of a missionary on a great sailing ship in the eighteenth century, or in the possession of a settler on the Great Plains of the United States in the nineteenth century... amazon reviewer from California
