Happy Friday! For a long time, you’ve been asking us, “When will Tiny Bible be available in a modern English translation?” We’ve heard you, and today we are excited to tell you that we’re taking pre-orders for a New King James Version (NKJV) Tiny Bible! Click here to pre-order your own.
We treasure the original King James Version and the commitment its translators had to providing its 17th -century reader with a Bible in their spoken tongue. The New King James Version is a continuation of that same commitment in our day.
Here’s a video where we playfully show that the English language has changed in meaningful ways in the past 400 years, such that even people well-accustomed to the original KJV’s Elizabethan English can (and do!) easily miss.
In 1611, while the ink was still wet on the King James Version translation, Hugh Broughton said, “I had rather be rent in pieces with wild horses than any such translation by my consent should be urged upon poor churches.” Every time the Word of God comes to a new generation in its spoken tongue, it has its detractors. It happened in the 17th Century, and it happens in our day. Don’t be intimidated by the Hugh Broughtons! They sometimes mean well, but 1 Corinthians 14 teaches that edification requires intelligibility. The Word of God is not bound, despite man’s efforts.
This NKJV printing wouldn’t be possible without all of your previous support. We couldn’t be licensing a modern Bible translation without it. A huge THANK YOU for your support.
If you have any questions, please contact us and we’ll be happy to answer them. We’re here for you.
Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly,
