    I'd be curious as why anyone would. An out of date Bible... w/ far better options... makes no sense.

    Isn't it still to this day considered the best of the Kjv family tree though?

    A Geneva Bible with a modern font would be better than the KJV in a number of respects. Although I do agree there are far better options today.

    But it also applies to the KJV of any stripe --it's an out-of-date translation --and there are much better choices for someone currently. It makes no sense for someone to use it these days.

    I would take the Geneva over any of the modern translations any day.

    How about that new-fangled 1611?
