Introducing the
 KJV Lion

Prepare to rediscover the most-loved translation of the Word of God. Available in six stunning colors, the KJV Lion features Meritian Goatskin, large print, a next-generation cross-reference system, defined archaic terms, and Illustrations by Gustave Doré.

A time-tested translation.

The King James Bible stands with dignity amidst the current of our fast-paced modern world. Essentially unmodified for over four hundred years, this translation from the ancient Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic texts remains the most popular English-language Bible of all time.

Meritian Goatskin.

You just have to feel it.

Quality matters. The Bible is a precious book; it should last for generations. For this reason, the KJV Lion is enclosed with the best quality goatskin leather available. The cover is paired with a synthetic liner resulting in a sturdy yet flexible binding. It's impossible to explain the way Meritian Goatskin feels in the hand. You just have to try it for yourself.

Green Edition
With Green Meritian Goatskin cover, brown liner, green under gold art-gilt, and brown ribbons.

Bold Art-gilt 
More to meet the eye.

You can now order the KJV Lion with a custom gilt color. We worked closely with our printer to produce the most stunning and vidid gilts. A special dye is sprayed into the gold gilt to give you an elegant color when you open your Bible.  

A green, blue, red, or purple art gilt is available for the different color bibles respectively.

Cross-reference system

If you are spending more time searching through cross-references than actually reading the Bible, something is wrong. That's why we designed the KJV Lion with a cross-reference system that prioritizes ease-of-use. Now you can find the cross-reference you are looking for in a simple glance.

Archaic Terms Defined

The Authorized King James Version remains the most trusted and respected translation of the Bible today. But since a portion of its vocabulary has fallen out of our modern lexicon, we’ve added definitions from Webster’s 1828 and 1913 English Dictionaries and Wright's 1876 Bible Word-Book to the bottom of each page to clarify archaic and confusing terms.

Beautifully designed,

carefully crafted.

The design of the KJV Lion references traditional Bible layouts with its double-column, verse-by-verse typeset, but moves beyond them to enhance the readability of the text and the beauty of the page. Within the line-matched text, bold drop caps signpost each chapter and serve as an homage to the ornate flourishes found in some of the earliest copies of the King James Version.

Smyth-sewn Binding

The book block is Smyth-sewn, a method of binding that not only provides durability but also allows the Bible to lay flat from Genesis to Revelation.

Gustave Doré 

Is a picture worth a thousand words? Gustave Doré’s illustrations certainly make a case for the affirmative. The KJV Lion features these powerful illustrations thoughtfully placed throughout the Testaments for you to discover as you study God's word.
