MEV Bible - Review and Giveaway

Growing up as a child, my first experience with reading the Bible was the King James Version. In a nutshell, it's like having Shakespeare translate the Word of God. You would find all the "thees" and "thous" throughout and often times, I struggled with understanding what I had just read. Now with the many different translations of the Bible available, I came across one I wish I had so many years ago. It is the MEV or Modern English Version of the Bible. To put it simply, it's just what it claims. It translates the King James Version with a more modern flair for what thee's and thou's really mean without giving up the quality most come to expect with the KJV.

It's perfect for those Bible Studies where a larger Bible would be a bit cumbersome. This one is less than an inch thick, and you can even get it in a variety of colors and styles to fit your own personality. There are some incredible full color maps at the end which make referencing, places and times in the Bible so easy to reference along with your reading. What I love is a Concordance is included to help make finding those favorite Bible passages easy to manage without having a separate book to tote along with you to church or studies. I know for me, this would be the perfect gift for my grandmother or parents who appreciate the tradition of the KJV without sacrificing the understanding of the language in the process.

I received The Holy Bible Modern English Version compliments of Media Connect, Inc for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and was provided with a free copy of the Bible. This version took well over nine years to publish as well as 47 scholars to ensure that the translation was accurate. I reviewed the Thinline Reference MEV Bible and can't wait to pass this one along to my parents. I know it will be something that they will treasure and use because of how much they value those time honored traditions that come from the King James Version and I absolutely love the size of this Bible. It would fit in a purse or briefcase with ease and without the addition of the weight of much larger Bibles. I would easily rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars.
