A joy to read

The most distinctive feature of The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible is its appearance.  The text is printed in paragraphs, not with each verse starting a new line.  There is a single column of text on each page, not two columns.  Quotation marks are used, and the spelling of some words has been modernized - something that is especially useful when an archaic spelling of a word now spells a different word (for example, “brake” has been changed to “broke”).  All these features make this new edition of the King James Bible very attractive and a joy to read.
