Recommended Bible Translation: The Third Millennium Bible (New Authorized Version)
The New Authorized Version (NAV) of the Holy Bible, also known as the Third Millennium Bible (TMB), is a modestly updated edition of the 1611 King James Bible. The NAV updates only the most obscure words, but otherwise does not change the language of the venerable Authorized Version. It does not modernize the language as the New King James Version does. It simply makes the Authorized Version easier to read by eliminating words that are no longer used in everyday English, or correcting words that have a different meaning now than in 1611. Like the Authorized version, the New Testament is based on the Traditional Byzantine text.
The typeface is large, 12-pt type, easy to read in single column. This Bible is ecumenical; as the original Authorized Version does, it has the Apocrypha, and so includes the books used and read by the Orthodox, Catholic, and Anglican Churches. The quality of the actual binding is excellent, and the publisher offers a life time guarantee. I highly recommend the New Authorized Version, Third Millennium Bible. It is now my work Bible, and my preferred version for devotions.
