The-Best-King-James-Bibles-1.jpg

The editors at Lord’s Library evaluate the best King James Bibles (KJV) based on popularity, ratings, and value.

The King James Version has stood the test of time and proven itself by becoming the best-selling of the different English Bible translations of all time. This is because it boasts incredible accuracy to the manuscripts from which it was translated and a rich, vibrant language. The complete King James Bible was originally published in 1611 after being commissioned by King James VI. Today, the King James Version still proves to be an effective and reliable translation, with its only caveat being that the language it’s written in is not friendly to the average reader.

With this in mind, the editors at Lord’s Library assembled this list of the best KJV Bibles to add to your reading list. The one that is right for you will largely depend on your level of Biblical study, and which denomination you belong to. The best KJV Bibles come in various flavors based on which features you want. Each listing includes author and publisher information, some basic facts about the edition, and links to any alternative versions that may be available.

Note: We only included the best KJV Bibles (King James Version) with a 4-star or better ranking and a minimum of 4,000 reviews. We ranked them according to different buyer motivations like most popular, top-rated, and best value.
