Every Bible should be printed like this  Jan 25, 2007
The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible is what I have long waited for. The text of the King James Bible is printed in paragraph form, with one column on each page (like a normal book), instead of the typical two columns per page which most Bibles have. I have never seen a King James version of the Bible printed this way. In the 1960s the New English Bible and the Jerusalem Bible were printed in one column with proper paragraphing. Some versions of the New American Standard bible are still published this way. Otherwise the norm is two columns, which frankly makes the text very hard to read for long periods of time. The NCPB is the only way that I know of that you can get the King James in the single column format. Hurrah! I am very grateful.

It has some other features which might, or might not, be pleasing to serious readers of the King James Bible. In addition to the paragraphing, it has modern punctuation, including quotation marks when people, or God, are speaking. The King James has traditionally not had this, because quotation marks had not been invented when it was originally translated. Also, the italics, which the original translators used when they were kind of guessing how to translate a word or phrase into English, are now gone. I do not miss them, but some people will. Finally, modern spelling has been applied. This is not as dramatic as you might fear. After all, the spelling which you are accustomed to seeing in the King James is not the original spelling from the year 1611. Most KJ Bibles have spellings updated to the year 1769 (yes, 1769), when the KJ became more or less fixed, and which is very different from the 1611 original. Here in The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible "Shalt" is still "Shalt" and thou, thy, and ye are still here too, but "shew" is now "show" and "spake" is now "spoke." The editor says that the intent was to modernize the spelling of words, not to update archaic words (like "thou"). In some cases this was a judgment call by the editor, and I was generally happy with the editor's decisions on this issue.

So, in short, The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible is the most readable King James Bible now available. Certainly the modern spelling and the elimination of italics makes it not the same as the 1611 original. However, I think that the editor has done an admirable job in making this classic translation accessible to the modern reader. Congratulations to him.

A couple of notes on the binding. First, this Bible is huge! More than 10 inches tall, it is the biggest Bible that I have ever owned. Second, the french morocco leather cover is satisfactory but not luxurious. I trust that it will be durable, but seems both a bit thin and rather stiff. The paper is excellent, however, and so is the print size. Reported as being 10 point, the type is easy to read for anyone who does not have a notable impairment of vision.
Wonderful binding - not sure sure about the content  Oct 20, 2006
The this site price is an extraordinarly good deal. Had I bought this from this, or direct from the Camridge Press I would have paid some 60% more than the $50 I paid here on this It is undoubtedly a beautifully produced book - the binding, paper and printing are all first-rate.
David Norton likens the task he has accomplished to cleaning up an old-master painting, so that the orginal colour can shine through once again. I am not entirely sure that he has achieved this.
He has sought to make the text consistent - whereas the text we knew and loved was idiosyncratic and frequently inconsistent - a work of art and love as well as of scholarship and academic endeavour. To give just one example - although there are many - sometimes the KJV uses the possessive second person singular when followed by a vowel as "thine" ("if thine eye offend the . . . ") and sometimes as "thy" ("who is the sword of thy excellency"). Inconsistent, yes . . . but part of its charm, and a product of a time when the language was changing. But Norton abhors all things inconsistent - so we have 'thy' thoughout. Hence "if thy eye offend thee".
Not any great matter . . . but for those who loved and grew up with the 'old' text, a dear old-master has been rendered somewhat sterile as well as cleaner.
Almost all other revisions of the text have been undertaken by a group of scholars who revered the words not merely as great literature but as the inspired word of God, and something of their awe and wonder has come across in their rendering. Norton (who in a magazine article describes himself as a non-believer) has set about his task in the conviction that the text before him is of huge significant to the development of our western culture, and of great literary and artistic worth; but for some of us (albeit not Dr Norton) it is so much more than that. To quote the words with which the bible is prsented to the newly crowned monarch at the coronation) "This book is the most valuable thing that the world affords . . . these are the lively Oracles of God" - something that I suspect Dr Norton would never say, and it shows.

My new "carry around and study" Bible  Oct 16, 2006
I just switched over from the RSV-CE as my standard for a variety of reasons outside the scope of this review. At any rate, the specified discount for this item is decidedly understated. Realistically, this volume costs something on the order of $120 from Cambridge, so the deal is out of this world.

The text is beautiful, as is to be expected of the KJV. The paragraph formatting is really great from what I've seen so far. The volume is a bit on the heavy side to hold for periods of time while reading, but that is the only negative (which is more of a whine!). In exchange for the size, you get a good typeface which is very readable, plus plenty of margin space for writing notes.
Very impressed  Sep 12, 2006
This bible is very well made. If you are looking for a new Bible and you like the KJV then I would recomend this one over any others. It is set up in paragraph format and it reads very smoothly. It has large clear print and nice typeface. It has good margins for note taking and it is good price for such a nice bible.
Exquisite Restoration of Venerable Text  Jun 21, 2006
This masterful restoration-translation of the 1611 AV/KJV must have been a labor of love for editor David Norton. I cannot fathom the amount of work he must have devoted to this Bible (probably comparable to someone painstakingly restoring a very large and very delicate work of art over a period of many years). This Bible is bound beautifully in leather by Cambridge and is printed in the UK. This Bible contains the Apocrypha, the dedication to King James, and the preface titled "The Translators To The Reader." I have never in my life seen an AV/KJV with the Apocrypha, the royal dedication, and the translators' essay addressed to the readers. This particular Bible is actually a little larger than my laptop computer and about twice as heavy! I hope Cambridge makes a smaller-sized edition of this translation at some point for those of us who travel light. For want of a better metaphor, this is an Sports Utility Vehicle-sized Bible and it would actually be suitable to be used even as a lectern Bible in a parish church (The text is large enough for a lectern Bible). I would prefer a smaller, "sports car-sized" version of this Bible. This Bible (even in the super-size version) would make a wonderful gift (ordination, birthday, confirmation, or wedding). It's been about 286 years since the standardized AV/KJV edition/translation of 1769. Thank you, David Norton, for this tremendous gift to Christendom. This is a culturally significant piece of work and I hope that Norton is recognized with an OBE and/or a knighthood for his scholarship and work on this important and beloved text. If the Queen can honor souls like the Beatles and Elton John, certainly Norton's work deserves such acknowledgement.
