The Treasure of God's Word via Book Sneeze

I signed up for Book Sneeze and received a book!!! This is my first review for them. Here is the description they've provided for it:

"Celebrate the most influential book in the history of English civilization!

Scholars have long agreed that one of the greatest influences in the shaping of the English language is the King James Version of the Bible. The Treasure of God’s Word is a celebration of the King James Version’s 400-year anniversary, continuing its legacy of inspiration to people in all walks of life. Scripture selections are divided into 45 topics that shed light on the vastness of God’s love for each one of us, as well as articles outlining the history of the translation from its original 1611 to present-day versions. It’s a ‘treasure’ that will bless anyone with a love for God’s Word and a belief that His promises hold true today as they have through the centuries."

When I got this book I think I was under the impression that it was going to be some sort of extremely descriptive Bible. What I got was even cooler than I thought because it applied different descriptive spirtual aspects of the Bible to everyday life & showed what those passages can mean to you.

Upon first glance, I was almost put off that the writer of the book was going to put their opinions about God's Grace & God's Love and things like that, but I found that that wasn't the case. It was as the description read, a history & the language was easy to understand. The most important thing was that there was a historical backing to it!

I also enjoyed the beautiful cover, it seems like a great gift to a Bible collector or anyone who appreciates the Word.
