Update as of July 2014

Greeting Dear Friends, 

Re: Update on Genuine Leather-Bound KJ3 Literal Translation Bible

 

Those that have purchased any of the KJ3 Literal Translation Bibles have been sending us rave reviews. To see those reviews checkout the review section for each of the Bibles or write your own review.  Most believe the KJ3 is the most accurate Bible in the English language. When we receive your emails and phone calls stating your praises to God for allowing us to finally deliver these Bibles to you, it uplifts our hearts and lets us know that our ministry is truly serving the Kingdom. 

 

We have shipped all the backordered KJ3 Bibles at this time.  Please inform us if you have not received your Bible which you pre-paid prior to the printing of 2011.  

 

    We have overcome 

To those who are unaware of this fact, after a two year battle with cancer, my father, Jay P. Green, Sr., was called home, May 20, 2008. He left around 1,000 backorders for the KJ3 Literal Translation Bibles. 

     There were no assets or funds remaining to either print or ship the backordered Bibles in Sovereign Grace Publishers. A great deal of time was spent meeting with various potential lenders, potential investors and possible buyers of Sovereign Grace Publishers.  A couple of lenders were interested but due to the backorders, they withdrew their loan offer. Two other investors expressed interest in either taking over Sovereign Grace Publishers, or the KJ3 Bible only, however they were not willing to honor the backorders. 

      With the help of my wife Sheryl, and a silent partner, we started a new company called SGPBooks.com, Inc. SGPBooks.com, Inc. was formed for the purpose of getting the KJ3 printed and all the backorders filled. Legally we do not have an obligation to fill old backorders or issue refunds on orders prior to May 2008, but being Christians we have honored the backorders, although we are unable to make refunds. 

      With the help of a loan from a church in Alaska, and help from some friends, $65,000.00 was raised to print the bonded leather hard cover KJ3 Bibles, the paperback Bibles, and to have the genuine leather  Bibles printed, bound and delivered to Mulberry, IN.  We have successfully produced, delivered and filled all the backorders for the paperback and hardback KJ3 Bibles occuring after May 2008. 

    Our PLAN OF ACTION 

After many days agonizing over how to resolve our current KJ3 issue, and consultation with Christian friends, as well as Prayer, we here at SGPBooks.com had decided on a plan of action which filled our pre-2008 backorders and allowed us to continue to meet our present day obligations as well to repay the funds borrowed for the printing and binding. 

     Regarding the Sovereign Grace Publishers, Inc. backorders made prior to May 2008, the leather Bibles were sold for $32.25 to $69.99. The current pricing for the KJ3 leather Bibles is $99.99. The shipping cost to all foreign countries is now $29.00 or more, the postage was $10.00 back in 2008. For that reason we requested an $18.00 upgrade from our customers. Of the $99.99 current price for the KJ3 genuine leather Bible, we would prefer to repay the church in Alaska $40.00  and $9.00 to the Australian brother for each Bible shipped. 

  1. Those that ordered the genuine leather Bibles will receive the genuine leather Bibles along with a request for a voluntary upgrade/gift to cover the additional costs. The upgrade buttons are on the front page of the website.
  2. For those that ordered the flexible cover bonded leather Bible, please realize that the only bonded leather KJ3 Bible available is a hardcover edition with gold stamping on the spine and front cover. No KJ3 flexible bonded leather Bible are in print but there are two used flexible bonded leather Literal Translation Bibles (predessor to the KJ3) available on Amazon and Ebay for over $500.00 each. We can ship the closest Bible match that is in print and that is the current bonded leather hardcover Bible which is gold stamped and is a smyth-sewn bonded leather cover but lacking the gold edges, rounded corners, ribbon marker and flexible cover that were advertised by the former company. This would require no KJ3 upgrade gift.

WE TRULY NEED YOUR HELP IN PRAYER AS WELL AS FINANCIALLY 

This will help us offset the remaining balance due to the printing and cover the costs of shipping these backorders. 

     These Bibles will sell out within two to three years after we receive them. Many of you have waited for up to seven years to receive the KJ3 Bible. This may be the last and final edition for this Bible unless sufficient funding is obtained to do a reprint. We will not be able to do another printing without additional financial help. 

     A lowly servant of Christ, 

Jay Green, Jr.,

Other Unfinished Projects 
 
  • New Revised Interlinear Hebrew-Greek-English Bible, One Volume Edition with added Hebrew and Greek Lexicons and 1769 KJV in N.T. side column
      • Description: Retains the 1985 Old Testament, but adds the 2006 New Testament with the 1769 KJV added within the New Testament as a separate side column. Also adds the Hebrew and Greek Lexicons in a single carrying volume which will be the same size and weight as the current one volume, but with 404 added pages. Will be available as a bonded leather hardback, 8 ½” X 11”.
      • Features: Clear, easier reading New Testament Greek text, corrected Strong’s Numbers, over 6,000 translation changes, included Hebrew and Greek Lexicons allowing easy and quick additional research into every Hebrew & Greek word, all included in one volume.
      • Progress: Typesetting has been completed through the Gospels and part of Acts which is about 50% of the New Testament revisions. The lexicons require pasting up into a three column format. This edition adds the 1769 King James Version in a separate side column in the New Testament, along with numbering all the Greek words and many translation changes since the 1985 edition.
      • Hold-up: Time and funds. The hold-up on this project is a lack of funds and staff to complete the typesetting. Jay Sr. has completed the revisions by hand but I haven’t been able to keep up with the typesetting of the Greek which I must do prior to turning it over to Jackie Serafim, an unpaid volunteer who is typesetting the Strong’s numbers and the interlined English as well as proofing the Greek for accuracy.
      • Funds Needed: $10,000 to complete typesetting the New Testament and $30,000 for the printing.
      • Time Frame assuming adequate funding: 200 man-hours for typesetting, 12 weeks for printing and delivery.
      • New Revised Interlinear Hebrew-English Old Testament, 3 Volume Edition - Newly Revised with the Revised Old Testament, the 1769 KJV and the Hebrew-English Lexicon
          • Description: This is the Old Testament to match the 2000 Interlinear Greek-English New Testament, with the 1769 KJV in a separate side column, 404 added Hebrew-English and Greek-English Lexicon pages . Will be available as a bonded leather hardback edition and a flexible genuine leather edition with ribbon markers.
          • Progress: Basic page layout completed, typesetting started.
          • Hold-up: Time and funds: I am again the hold-up as I am the one doing the typesetting of the Hebrew due to a lack of staff to assign this project to.
          • Funds Needed: Typesetting: $35,000  Printing: $50,000
          • Time Frame assuming adequate funding: 3,500 man-hours for typesetting (1 full-time person = 87.5 weeks, 2 persons = 43.25 weeks, 4 persons = 21.66 weeks, plus 12 weeks for printing and delivery. As you can see, it all depends on funding and the ability to find competent staff for the typesetting. If no staff, it could be as long as eight to ten years as I am unable to devote more than 6 to 10 hours a week of my time.
             
      • Interlinear Greek-English-Spanish New Testament with Strong’s numbers 

          • Description: This will be the first Interlinear Greek-English-Spanish New Testament based on the Textus Receptus. Presently the Spanish speaking world does not have an accurate Bible translation available based on the Textus Receptus.
          • Progress: The book of John has been translated.
          • Hold-up: Time and funds to move forward with both translation and typesetting, more volunteers needed for translation work.
          • Funds Needed: Translation: $0 – Volunteers, Staff Spanish Editor $20,000  Typesetting: $12,000  Printing: $10,000
          • Time Frame: Translation – 1,200 hours; Typesetting: 1,200 hours; Printing and delivery 12 weeks.
          • Market: It is predicted that the Hispanic population in the US will rival the Anglo population within the next twenty years
             
      • Interlinear Multi-Language Database with Lexicons and Cross References 
         

          • Description: This will bring the Interlinear Bible into Bible software programs all over the world and allow for easier development of Interlinear Bibles into virtually all languages of the world. This could be what is needed to offset the popular use of the corrupt manuscripts by so many scholars in the English speaking nations of the world. There is a real hunger for a true and accurate “Textus Receptus” Bible needed for the Body of Christ in other languages. Our KJ3 above is being translated into Indonesian and is nearly completed. They have a real hunger for the truth. What prompted this Indonesian non-profit organization to translate the Bible is that all Christian Bibles in Indonesian use “Allah” as the name for our Savior.
          • Progress: Waiting to complete contract between the parties.
          • Hold-up: Time and funds – Much will be done by volunteers, but much will need to be done by internal staff.
          • Funds Needed: Staff: $20,000 (one full time person for one year)
          • Time Frame:Six to twelve months.

          • Funds Needed: $35,000 for printing
             
      • KJ3 – Literal Translation – Study Bible
          • Description: This will be the first English only Study Bible produced by Sovereign Grace. The plan is to add cross references and a concordance and is what we need to do to advance the KJ3 into a main stream Bible which is our desire and many of you have also expressed the same desire.
          • Progress: None
          • Hold Up: Volunteers needed to begin work.
          • Funds Needed: None estimated

 SGP’S AND RELATED ENTITIES DOCTRINAL BELIEFS

Sovereign Grace Publishers, Inc. is committed to the belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the exalted Lord of all things. We believe the Holy Scriptures determines the view of all those who profess Him as Savior and Lord. Hence, our organization believes the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant and authoritative Word of God, the final rule of all Christian faith and practice. Even though we don’t recognize any creed or confession of faith as a final authority, our organization does distribute the Philadelphia Confession of Faith as a summarized statement of our basic doctrinal and practical beliefs.
We are dedicated to translating and preserving the Word of God without alteration, paraphrasing, or in any way inserting our beliefs and doctrines or anyone else’s belief or doctrines into the Bible. We also believe that the Greek ‘Textus Receptus’ or ‘Received Text’ (primary text used by the translators of the King James Version) has been preserved by the Triune God and remain committed to only using this text as the basis of all of our New Testament translation work.
At the same time we also believe that the old English language used by the KJV translators, while poetic and beautiful, is not easily understood by the English speaking nations of the world today, and therefore make every effort to match our translation efforts to the language of today.
Additionally, we are dedicated to republishing and preserving the works of Puritan and modern-day authors which we believe to be of benefit to all Christians in their daily walk with our Lord and Savior.

SGP’S AND ENTITITES MISSION

To try and honor Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in all that we do and to seek His guidance in all that we do.

    1. To make available and try to insure that Christians throughout the world have and will have access to theologically sound and Biblically true Bibles and books at the lowest possible prices.
    2. To guard the Sacred Deposit (Holy Bible) and warn of Satan’s attacks on the Body of Christ through guile and the assimilation throughout the world of Biblically unsound Bibles, books and software created by or using mistranslations of the Bible or the use of corrupted manuscripts.
    3. To assist the followers of Christ in selecting the best books and Biblical books and tools they can rely on to assist them in their daily walk with Christ.

What the lord has allowed SGP to do

The accomplishments below are for your information and not to bring any glory to SGP or any of the individuals behind SGP. These points are to allow you to see how the Lord allows anyone to work for the Body of Christ without millions of dollars, corporate sponsorships, big committees and any of the other normal business formulas many believe are necessary to accomplish worthwhile goals. YOU can make a difference as long as you seek His guidance and He will use you for His glory and honor as long as you put Christ first. History has shown us from the days of Martin Luther, John Calvin, Matthew Henry, Charles Spurgeon, James Strong, Gesenius, Daniel Webster, Tyndale, (Note: no committees here) and many others have made a difference as individuals.  These were individuals chosen by God to either guide and mentor those that followed or to develop tools to assist Christians in their daily walk with Christ. I sincerely believe that none of these men accomplished what they accomplished for their own glory nor did they ask to do what they accomplished for the Body of Christ. I also believe that they were led by our Triune God to accomplish what they accomplished. So also we have attempted to do our part.

  1. Our ministries with the help of many other Christians over the past 50 plus years have re-acquainted Christians throughout the world with the works of the Puritans having sold many tens of thousands of copies.
  2. Our Children’s Bible series, the Teenage Bible and the Modern King James Version sold over 100,000 copies and were published by Harper & Row and McGraw Hill publishers of New York, the KJII Bibles sold over 250,000 copies and was published by Associated Publishers and Authors, and the Literal Translation published by two different publishers and has sold over 20,000 copies.
  3. We were the first to take Strong’s number out of Strong’s dictionary and placed those numbers in Thayer’s Greek English Lexicon, Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon, the Englishman’s Hebrew and Greek Concordances and the Analytical Greek Lexicon has become the basis for each and every Bible software program in the world. These works have been published by four different publishers with over a million copies sold. We were also the first to add lexicon entries to the Englishman’s Greek Concordance also published by three different publishers.
  4. The Interlinear Bible series took that Strong’s numbering system to a new level allowing anyone without any knowledge of Greek or Hebrew to go to the original Biblical language texts and decipher what the Bible actually says without any outside interpretation. The Interlinear Bible series and its cross-referenced works have become staples in the libraries of Bible students, pastors and seminaries all over the world with over 400,000 Interlinear Bibles and over a million of the cross-referenced works in circulation. The Interlinear Bibles have also been published by four different publishers and SGP. Those that use the above Bibles and books praise the Bible tools created by our ministries. No longer does any serious Bible student have to rely on someone else to tell him what the Bible says, he can discover it for himself.
  5. The Concise Lexicon to the Biblical Languages is the first time any lexicon has ever contained all the Hebrew and Greek words of the Bible complete with lexicon entries and cross-referenced to Brown-Driver Brigg’s Hebrew Lexicon, Thayer’s Greek English Lexicon, Arndt & Gingrich Greek English Lexicon and Kittel’s Theological Dictionary.
  6. The work done by SGP et al and Jay Green, Sr. in paragraphs three through five above was freely given (royalty free) to Larry Pierce to use in developing the Online Bible computer software program as one of the early forerunners to virtually every Bible software program made today and those same works have since been incorporated in and used by virtually every single Bible software program since developed.
  7. Prison Ministry – SGP has always tried to give Bibles freely to those who ask and are in need as much as our inventory allows. For over ten years we have been sending Interlinear Bibles and other Bible study tools to prisoners throughout the world just for the asking. We get an average of fifty requests a month. Lately, as our inventory stocks have dwindled, we have been building a backlog of prisoner requests that we have been unable to fill.
  8. We have freely (royalty free) given the use of the Modern King James and Literal Translation Bibles to numerous software developers, websites and Bible software companies and ministries that distribute their Bible software freely to Christians. We hope to continue to do so as long as we are able to.

In closing, I believe that we may not have been following the Lord’s lead in doing His work for the Body of Christ. I had come to believe that I must accomplish all these things to honor the Heavenly Father and my birth father, Jay P. Green, Sr. I thought that I had to make this happen or that happen and that the whole burden fell on my shoulders, and by doing thusly you tend to think that you are the one accomplishing the accomplishments when things do manage to get done. It is not I nor my birth father Jay Sr.’s work, but rather it is the Heavenly Father’s work and with this letter to you, I am placing it all in His hands to do as He sees best. I am merely a tool and if he provides the means I will follow and do my utmost to do what he allows me to do, if He doesn’t provide then I shall continue to seek His guidance. It is with this thought that I ask you to join us in praying and seeking His guidance and blessings on this ministry if it be His will.

A lowly servant of Our Savior and Christ,
Jay P. Green, Jr.,
President
