Good old KING JAMES VERSION
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) uses the King James Version of the Holy Bible
as their official English-language Bible for use in church and for establishing points of doctrine. At
home one can study as many different versions as one wishes (I have ten), but bring the good old
King James Bible with your when you come to church. If you don't have King James with you,
however, you will not be turned away.
There are many who find the language of the King James Version hard, especially when we are also
instructed and encourage to use 'King James language' while praying or addressing Deity in our
hymns. For those of you who find it difficult, here is a WORKSHEET I made to help the children
(and their parents).
1979 LDS Edition of the King James Bible
In 1979 the LDS Church published a Latter-day Saint edition of the King James Bible with extensive
study aides and footnotes linking it with the other LDS scriptures. CLICK HERE to read an article
from the LDS church magazines when this edition was first published. (CLICK HERE to read an
article when the 1981 edition of the Book of Mormon and Doctrine & Covenants was published.)
In 2013 this edition was revised with improved study aides.
You can READ IT ON-LINE, or even DOWNLOAD it in various formats.
