Hendrickson Publishers KJV Devotional Bible - Flexisoft Leather, Black

Featuring over 400 meditations—from classic to contemporary—that will deepen your love for God's Word.

Introducing the first devotional Bible using the King James Version.

Devotional Bibles became popular twenty years ago, and today they comprise a large portion of the Bible market. But until now, there has never been a devotional Bible for those who love and use the King James Version.

Featuring more than 400 devotions, quotes and selections that have been carefully chosen to reflect the impact that the powerful language of the King James Version has had on writers over the span of four centuries, the Hendrickson KJV Devotional Bible is the first of its kind.

The devotional selections are interspersed throughout the Bible, placed near related scripture passages, allowing the reader to go at his/her own pace rather than follow a prescribed sequence.

From Charles Wesley to Dallas Willard, C. S. Lewis to Elisabeth Elliot, the featured contributor list reads like a "Who's Who" in the pantheon of Christian thinkers:
  • Bayley, Joseph
  • Bence, Evelyn
  • ten Boom, Corrie
  • Bounds, E. M.

I was pleasantly surprised that the book took far less than 3 months to reach me. As for the book itself, I look forward to diving into it and contemplating God's words to me.

I received my genuine leather bible about 7 days (1 week) ago, and after looking through it real thoroughly, I find it a really superb way to spend devotional time with yourself and the lord. Each devotion in this bible gives you strength for daily living,
plus, that fact that even though today's life problems will at times will drive you down, it's like this bibles devotional reading will encourage you through those tough times, as well as strengthen your walk with God, and help you to become the type of person that only God himself would want you to become! These devotional writers in this bible are great, and the bible itself is awesome!

The Bible turned out to be everything I expected and more. I gave it to my husband as a gift and had it engraved and i've heard no complaints about it so far.

I am so very, very pleased with this Bible! Finally, a KJV devotional Bible! The selection of devotional authors is excellent. The Bible is beautiful, well-made, and sturdy. The print is dark, and easy on the eyes. I look forward to enjoying this Bible for many, many years!

This Bible is put together well and is a great size. I also like the fact that it has 2 ribbon markers. The devotions in it are well placed and thought provoking. The pages, cover and binding appear to be of good quality.

I love the lyrics to hymns and gospel songs. Have you ever been running referrences and run out of fingers to use as place markers? You may be helped by this Bible because it has two ribbons to use as place keepers. I also love the colors of the cover.

We are a KJV only family, therefore when I saw this pop up, I was very interested. Then when it said that it was to be released on Oct. 29th, I thought perfect, our wedding anniversary. I ordered this one for myself and the pink one for my wife. We love the flexisoft cover, which I wasn't sure about when I ordered, as I don't generally go for anything that isn't leather, but I am glad I did.
The content is excellent in terms of the devotional content, and I really like how some of the typeset is done in some of the books. The text is just the right shade for easy reading and the font size is easy on the eye.
My only complaint is that mine had almost every single page stuck together. I am still working on going through and separating the pages. If I were to give a non professional opinion, I would say the cutting blade wasn't sharp enough and it put a small round on the edges, which I can clearly feel.
Anyway, if you want a great devotional bible and are KJV only like us, look no further.
