Thomas Nelson, KJV Giant Print, Red Letter, 544B. [Thumb-indexed] God. 1976. 1900 pages [best guess] Source: Bought

First sentence: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

I really enjoy finding "vintage" Bibles. This one is from 1976 and is published by Thomas Nelson. It is a giant print, double column, words of Christ in red. It is "self-pronouncing" which means longer words [and/or proper nouns] are broken into syllables and may feature symbols to aid in pronunciation. It is the King James Version. The "helps" include a bible reading plan, a concordance, and summaries for each book of the Bible. It also features some color maps. At the end of some verses, more obscure words are defined--very briefly.

I used a modified M'Cheyne-Horner Bible bookmark reading plan. I read this one in about a month. I did start some bookmarks over again. I used five bookmarks this time instead of four. It would have evened out better perhaps sticking with just four.

What I loved most about this one was the SIZE of this one. You get a GIANT-print bible without a giant bible. It is probably a little larger than a personal Bible, but, smaller that many Bibles. The font size was lovely. The font type was not "modern" nor ancient. In other words, far from the modern-day "comfort print" fonts that publishers take such pride in. Yet not hard to read on the eyes. I also love how DARK or even bold the text of the Bible is. One of my biggest pet peeves with modern publishing is the text color a variant of gray--very light. This, I suppose, is to "help" with ghosting. But gray text doesn't really fix that problem without introducing other problems. Does this one have ghosting? YES. Unfortunately. It isn't a huge distraction, but it is a slight one. It's the type of ghosting where you see lines bleed through but you can't necessarily make out individual letters or words.

First sentence: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

To clarify the five stars is because it is the Bible--the very Word of God--and it is also the King James Version which is one of my favorite translations of the Bible.

What you should know:

1) It is a DAILY Bible. It has OT selection, NT selection, a Psalm, a [tiny bit of] Proverbs. It does take readers through the book of Psalms twice. However just one read through of Proverbs. As you can imagine it chops up Proverbs into ridiculously small sections to make it last 365 days.
2) It is two column, black letter.
3) It is "for women." Why??? Nobody knows. Not really. I suppose because the 100 word devotions that accompany each of the readings was written by a woman.
4) It is paperback. I am not sure if it's available in other bindings--hardcover, fake leather, leather, etc. But many daily bibles are just available in paperback.
5) It is the King James translation. I believe this is one of many translations available for the "One Year Bible for Women" line of Bibles.
6) It is the King James Version. It is verse by verse--like many KJV--and it does NOT have "self-pronouncing" text [aka syllables broken down.
7) The "attractive layout" is listed as one of the main benefits of this one on the back of the Bible. I do like the green border on the pages. It provides a color frame for seeing Scripture.

I found this one at a thrift shop--still in plastic--for two or three dollars. It was definitely worth that price. Is it worth the list price???? It depends on YOU the potential reader. There are better ways to get the King James Version in my opinion.

I am not necessarily a fan of daily Bibles. I think I could be if there was a way to adapt them. I am contemplating trying to pair a hymn per day with the reading plan. I think adding something a little more would make it better. I actually love the idea of singing a hymn per day as part of daily devotions.

My "dream" daily Bible would have you go through the book of Psalms at least six times per year. [No, I'd actually really LOVE to see it twelve times per year. But I know the book of common prayer offers two ways to read the Psalms--a one month schedule and a two month schedule.] Proverbs definitely needs a LOT of help in this reading plan. There's no reason why you couldn't read one Proverb a day OR at the very least four or five whole Proverbs for a seven day period. To divide a book with thirty-one chapters into 365 readings is silly. I also wish that the reading plan didn't break up readings in the middle of chapters. Rarely does that make sense for reading meaning into the text. Occasionally it does. Sometimes there are natural stops in the middle of a chapter. But these are rarely why the reading plan stops when it stops. I think human beings should have more to do with the creating of reading plans and less math.

NASB 1995, Thompson Chain-Reference Bible, Red Letter, Comfort Print, 2023. Zondervan. 2144 pages. [Source: Bought]

First sentence: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

Start date: February 14, 2024
End date: April 5, 2024

Was this my first time reading the New American Standard (1995)? NO. It is one of my all time favorite, favorite, favorite, favorite translations. I love and adore this translation.

Was this my first time reading the Thompson Chain Reference Bible? No. I've read it in the NASB 1977 and the King James Version. I do LOVE the Thompson Chain Reference.

This is a double column, red letter reference bible. It utilizes the chain references [and the chain reference system] of Frank Charles Thompson. This is one of the older "legacy" "study" Bibles available. It is available in many different translations--KJV, NKJV, ESV, NASB 1977, NASB 1995, NIV 1984, probably NIV 2011. This is an UPDATED edition of the Thompson Chain Reference. The changes are mostly superficial yet beneficial.

One of the upgrades of the update is a larger font size in the "regular" edition. The font size is 9.5 instead of 8.3. It is also comfort print which can definitely be easier on the eyes. There are also options to buy this in large print--the large print is 10.5 font size.

This is a LARGE Bible. It is heavy. IT is over three pounds. (The large print edition is over four pounds.)
