|The One Year Bible--KJV Mar 20, 2006|
|I had previously purchased the study companion to the "One Year Bible" to use with a regular Bible. This edition is already arranged with the daily readings for the Old and New Testaments, the Psalms and Proverbs. That eliminates the need to keep flipping back and forth, and keeping four bookmarks in your Bible. The daily readings will probably take you from 15-30 minutes to read. While I prefer to read the King James Version, many readers may be more comfortable with the Revised Standard.|
|THE ONE YEAR: KING JAMES VERSION Mar 8, 2006|
|GREASTEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN, IF SOMEONE WANTS TO READ ABOUT PEACE, VIOLENCE, WARS, LUST, ETC. THIS IS THE BOOK TO READ.|

|Good at what it does, but... Feb 25, 2006|
|I had never read the entire Bible from cover to cover, and this seemed like an excellent tool for doing so. |
I confess, I picked up the KJV because I'm an English major snob and I like the poetry of the old language. However, I must make another confession: the old text sometimes has words that had me reaching for my Merriam Webster dictionary because I suddenly said, "huh?" while reading.
The best aspect of the one-year KJV is that it provides a variety of readings on a daily basis--a little OT, a little NT, something from Psalms, something from Proverbs--so you don't have a long, hard slog through some books, like the oh-so-gruesome Book of Leviticus. This variety speeds the process along, and really at a couple pages a day, they do make it easy for you.
My one gripe about the one-year format is that it is not good for referencing specific books, chapters, or passages. For instance, sometimes I may have a need to look up a specific book. Given the not-quite-sequential nature of the daily readings, I find myself wishing for a traditionally ordered KJV, so I have the feeling that I'll be buying that next.
And so, on December 31, I managed to complete my reading of the King James Bible. I did not read every single day...Later in the year I ended up reading a week at a time when my schedule was free. That doesn't always allow for a deep reading or understanding. And, honestly, the highfalutin language got to be a little too much even for me. I might try the Revised Standard Version or (maybe) the NIV at some later point so I have a clearer idea of what I was reading. Or I'll pick up a study bible so I could get some things clarified.
So what did I learn? If I had to summarize the Old Testament and New Testament separately, I would use the following verses:
"I [am] the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments." (Exodus 20:2-6)
This seems to sum up the "story" of the Old Testament nicely. God made a pact with his chosen people, Israel, and obedience to Him was the primary thing he required on his side of the bargain. The Old Testament then goes on to show all the bad things that happen to the Israelites when they do not obey--God's favor is withdrawn, and their nation suffers. This lesson, the first of the Ten Commandments, has resonance today because, if human beings do not start with a belief in God to whom they are answerable, they are likely to violate all the other Commandments as well.
The New Testament can be summed up by that verse you see on signs at football games, John 3:16:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
If the Old Testament emphasizes God's law, the New Testament emphasizes His love, as exemplified by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The New Testament has three great heroes: Jesus is the subject of the story and also the great story teller; the apostle Peter is the leader who falls and then redeems himself after Jesus's crucifixion; St. Paul is the great evangelizer and systematizer of Christian doctrine and behavior.
If I had to pick a favorite book or two out of the Bible, I would pick the Psalms for their sheer poetry and ability to bring comfort and joy. Following that, I might choose the Book of Ecclesiastes and the Gospel of Matthew, which seems to be the Gospel that speaks in the clearest language.
I am glad that I finally read the Bible all the way through. It was something I needed to do. However, when I next feel like educating myself on its text, I will take the easier way out and try a version closer to the language I speak.
