Book Review – The Treasure of God’s Word
The Treasure of God’s word is a beautifully produced gift book that celebrates the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible which was published for the first time in 1611.
The pages of the book have a parchment look about them and are gold edged, while the cover is of imitation leather, which gives the book a look and feel of a much more expensive book than it actually is.
Inside the pages are a selection of verses from the King James Bible sorted into over 40 topical categories including such topics as God’s Love, God’s Mercy, Our Salvation and the Power of prayer. Interspersed between the categories are various short articles on the history of the King James – or Authorised Version as it is also known – Bible.
My only disappointment with the book is with the articles, they are not only short but also in short supply. For some reason I was expecting the book to contain rather more substance on the history of this version of the Bible, especially given the fact that there is a 400 year history to draw on.
That aside, I would have to say that this would make an excellent gift for anyone who appreciates the beauty of the language of the King James.
