Charisma House Announces 'Most Modern Version' of KJV

Charisma House has announced plans for an update of the King James Version (KJV) Bible, to be called the Modern English Version (MEV). Described as "the most modern of the KJV," the new version will be released next year.

The MEV is the most modern translation produced of the KJV in 30 years, according to officials for the book group of Charisma Media. The word-for-word translation maintains the beauty of the past, yet provides clarity for a new generation of Bible readers. The MEV also accurately communicates God's Word anew as it capitalizes references of God, "maintaining reverence" for the Scriptures.

"To Bible readers who value biblical truth, the MEV literally translates God's Word in a way that preserves the message, but remains readable for today's world," said Tessie DeVore, executive vice president of Charisma House. "And because of this, we anticipate that the MEV will have broad ...

How can a good version of the Bible come from two Anglican Liberal Heretics???
Westcott and Hort distorted the Greek NT text in the 1880's - that same distortion is used by the NASB, NIV and other modern versions.

As Jesus teaches; "Luke 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes."

Christian pick your fruit from the KJV which God has been using for centuries.

I already said what I had to say about variations on a very bad version of the Bible, the KJV, not only because of the The Truth About KJV Only...Agendas, oh and which version of the AV itself? Final Authority -- Answers to a reader's question of KJV as his final authority. But, as I pointed out to make a third-rate version of the KJV 1769 a second rate version it has to be in modern English. The best version of the English Bible out there is the NASB. Read the whole--yes rather lengthy--URL=http://web.archive.org/web/20071021065646/http://faith.propadeutic.com/questions.html>Comparing Bible Translations to decide which to go for, but as I said the only acceptable KJV is The Ryrie KJV Study Bible Hardback-Red Letter, well or, Comparative Study Bible. At least you get three good modern Bibles with KJV.

Nothing to say about the latest, bestest ever, new version, Jim? It's amazing how you never comment on the new version the thread is all about.

"Charisma House has announced plans for an update of the King James Version (KJV) Bible, to be called the Modern English Version (MEV). Described as "the most modern of the KJV," the new version will be released next year.

But then, I guess the sales graph for the NASB is dwindling already, prompting a response from shareholders to shore up the losses.

Margaret, the essence of Christianity is "Only Scripture," "Only Christ," "Only Grace," "Only Faith," and "To God Alone Be Glory".

When it is Scripture it has to be accurate, The Biblical Position on The KJV Controversy and it has to be understandable by the person reading it,

Let me say it again--the sole justification for producing and publishing any Bible translation is so that those who do not understand the words in the original languages can nevertheless gain access to them through words they do understand in their own language.

Interesting to see how the trend is shaping up where each subculture in Christianity has its own translation. No longer are there "standard" translations like the KJV, NSAB, etc. Now Southern Baptists have one (HCSB), Reformed people have one (ESV), liberals have one (CEB), etc. And the Charismatics will have one. Each group seems to want to capture the Bible dollars of its members and not let those dollars go out to big publishers like HarperCollins. Christians are standardizing on a translation, but each group has its own Bible. Very different than in the past when disparate groups standardized on the same Bible translation.
And, as I understand it, the right to choose is the essence of Christianity.

If you want the KJV in a readable form, get The 21st Century King James Version of the Holy Bible (KJ21®), if you want a Bible that follows the Textus Receptus more closely than even the KJV then get New King James Version. If you are actually in interested in God's Word, then get the New American Standard Bible.

Christopher Pope wrote:
Translations Not Recommended

Advances in understanding the text of the New Testament, as well as changes in the English language, have made the Geneva Bible (GEN), King James Version (KJV), and Young's Literal Translation far obsolete. Their rating is lower for the fact that, while the most formally literal, none of them pay enough attention to the nuances of grammar and syntax.... The 21st Century King James Version (KJ21) might have outdone the NKJV if it had been more consistent in updating the KJV's archaisms and correcting more obvious errors such as Easter in Acts 12:4....

You are not an American Independent Fundamentalist Baptist so please restrain yourself from such excesses. They believe in secondary separation, so

Alas, you are quite right. Mea Culpa!

But the sackcloth is still on the washing line, and I've run out of ashes. Maybe the MCC have some I could borrow.

Quite so, Rufus, and I also wish that instead of continually coming out with more and more English versions, these publishers would concern themselves with those people groups without even one version of the scriptures in their native language. But then, there's not much money in that. As far as I'm concerned, that shows where their priorities lie.

Uh oh, I thought they were simply going to update the antiquated words; leaving the rest in tact...then I read on.
Key words, "broad ecumenical acceptance".

I'm glad the King James Bible marches on regardless.

I was just thinking that what we need is another Bible translation. After all, the market is not yet saturated with them.
