The Holy Bible will make a handsome addition to any home. The revised translation, which is easily accessible for the modern reader, is based squarely on the original King James Version, published in 1611. In the course of time, the King James Version came to be regarded as "the Authorized Version." With good reason, it has been termed "the noblest monument of English prose," and it has come to be of central importance to Western society as no other book. Thunder Bay's Holy Bible is beautifully appointed and illustrated with reproductions of original fifteenth-century illuminated masterpieces. Almost every page of the Holy Bible has illuminated accents, and there are evocative illustrations throughout from the Vatican Library. The illustrations reproduce Renaissance masterpieces from the period of 1430 to 1510, and the overall design is inspired by the peerless Urbino Bible of 1478. The Holy Bible is complete with beautiful pages on which to lovingly record marriages, births, baptisms, confirmations, deaths, and family trees.
