The KJV Lion - Sahara Blue features the Authorized King James Version in a highly readable verse-by-verse Bible text in a double-column format. Combining an 11-point Milo typeface,line-matching, archaic words defined, and illustrations from Gustave Dore, this edition is the perfect tool for serious Bible students.
I've always found the KJV translation difficult to read and archaic when compared to its NKJV, NIV, and other counterparts. However, I've recently found myself drawn to the translation that William Tyndale gave his life for and this beautiful edition from Humble Lamb is a great way to reintroduce yourself to the original English language translation of the Bible. My first purchase from Humble Lamb was their NKJV translation edition of the Bible. And I must say that the quality, look, and feel of the new KJV edition provides a step up on the NKJV edition. It feels more robust and has a larger font that makes reading easy and the Dore paintings throughout are always well placed. Finally, I love the Lion fore-edge Gilt that reveals itself as you open the Bible. Gives it a special look that none of the other Bibles I've owned has ever had before.
Do not hesitate to add this Bible to your collection. I have Allan, Cambridge, and Schuyler Bibles and now I have the Humble Lamb Bible added. Thank you for your project and its success.
The Lion KJV Bible that started as a Kickstarter project is truly an amazing story. It's founder and chief creative officer, Daniel, is an aspiring David that has a grand mission to "slay" the Goliaths of Premium Bible Publishers (R.L. Allan, Cambridge, Schuyler, Thomas Nelson, Zondervan.) Indeed, this young upstart Bible Publishing Company, Humble Lamb, is a "Lion" at heart, as it endeavours to fulfill its vision of presenting the very best Premium Bible to the mass market. The LIon KJV edition that I have purchased is the Sahara Blue Edition. It's cover design is very groundbreaking, in that its display is simple, yet straightforward. It focuses to the heart of the matter. The words etched and shown at the spine of "the Book," says it all: THE WORD OF GOD. The art gilt is very rich with the blue under gold, The quality of the three gold ribbons is superb. The Meritan Goatskin leather is very supple and soft to touch. I was impressed that the "Lion" and the "Humble Lamb" logos were imprinted in gold inside the cover in order to properly identify itself, and humbly so. With its perimeter stitching, gold borders on the inside cover, the inside "suede" feel, this premium bible, though humble, is confident as it stands tall as a first among equals in the premium bible market. What makes this premium bible so distinctive is its layout. With the words of Christ in BLUE, the timeless artworks of the legendary Gustave Dore displayed throughout the Bible, the unique placement and order of the scripture references and meanings of the KJV archaic words at the bottom, and even an original concordance and original maps for 2020, the "Lion" roars fierce of creative originality, sincere authenticity, and a genuine desire to excel. Indeed, including the Translators to The Reader, along with The Epistle Dedicatory, Humble Lamb succinctly honors the 47 translators with their enduring legacy, the Authorized King James Version. The Translators' holy purpose are clearly defined by their own words: Truly, good Christian Reader, we never thought from the beginning that we should need to make a new translation, nor yet to make of a bad one a good one;…but to make a good one better, or out of many good ones one principal good one, not justly to be expected against; that hath been our endeavour, that our mark. I commend Humble Lamb for choosing the Authorized King James Version as "the translation" for its relentless vision and pursuit, for Bible Publishing Excellence!
I am so very pleased to support Humble Lamb! I ordered this Sahara Blue with the Lion fore edge. IT IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! The goatskin is wonderful. The choice of colors on this one fantastic. And did I mention the magnificent Lion fore edge? That simply sets Humble Lamb apart from other premium Bible manufacturers. It's incredible! A beautiful way to honor God's Word.
Well worth the wait! The craftsmanship of this Bible is outstanding. Great Bible to give as a gift or keep for yourself. A quality Bible at a reasonable price!
