This Bible translation continues in the tradition of the King James Bible. As described in the Preface, it accounts for the “development of biblical studies and the discovery of many biblical manuscripts,” and is “essentially a literal translation” that introduces changes “as are warranted on the basis of accuracy, clarity, euphony, and current English usage.”  The Bible includes a concordance for finding key verses and a ribbon bookmark.
