The Holy Bible In Its Original Order (Lambskin)
Edited by Fred Coulter
From The Publisher:
1st Editon of 10,000 Sold Out! This new second edition of The Original Order Bible contains a new 32-page commentary section: Understanding the Difficult Words of the Apostle Paul.
With 1442 pages, The Holy Bible In Its Original Order is only 1-3/8 inches thick -- and measures 8¼ by 10½ inches. The genuine handcrafted lambskin cover features gold stamped lettering. The paper is high-quality French Bible paper with gold gilded edges. The pages are easy to turn and do not stick together. The Bible also features wide margins for note taking, and a center column with selected references, word definitions and alternate renderings for various key words. It comes in a highly durable presentation box, beautifully adorned with orginal artwork.
Included are over 250 pages of commentaries and appendices covering virtually every aspect of the history, preservation and canonization of the Bible as well as covering numerous teachings of Jesus and the apostles. Historical chronologies, detailed footnotes and marginal references are also included.
Why another Bible? After the publication of the King James Version in 1611, the English Bible remained virtually unchanged. Beginning in the late 1800s, however, inferior Greek texts began to gain in popularity among scholars, from which sprang several corrupt translations. Over the decades, scores of such revised translations have been produced, collectively documenting the insidious corruption of the Word of God.
Most alarming is the recent trend toward contemporary versions ranging from the inadequate to the blasphemous in which the emphasis on an accurate translation has been abandoned in favor of a liberal paraphrase. The more popular translations are nothing but freewheeling renderings that destroy the meaning of the Word of God and dangerously corrupt its teachings. Yet, when the apostle Paul wrote, he used very precise Greek to fully explain Jesus teachings.
Indeed, the foundation of Christianity is being subverted and corrupted with new easy-to-read translations that alter the Word of God so dramatically that the true message of God has become lost. Numerous contemporary translations omit or add words even whole verses. Some translators have boldly added entire books that were never part of the original canon. And todays higher criticism has purported to expose so-called weaknesses and discrepancies in the authentic texts, undermining the faith of many.
Editor Fred Coulter contends that the current assault on the Word of God must not go unchallenged. It is against this backdrop that Coulter was moved to produce a new translation free from scholarly corruption, political correctness and crude language. After publishing The New Testament In Its Original Order in 2004, Coulter teamed up with biblical Hebrew consultant Michael Heiss to produce a faithful translation of the Old Testament from the Hebrew Masoretic text. With both the Old and New Testaments faithfully translated, Coulter then published The Holy Bible In Its Original Order--A Faithful Version With Commentary in an effort to preserve the Word of God in an understandable, easy-to-read manner.
