Product Description

The People's Bible: The Remarkable Story of the King James Bible tells the story of one of the most influential, provocative, ambitious projects of its day: translating the Bible into English, the language of the people. In 1604 the new King James I convened a meeting at Hampton Court to address the problem of the Puritans. The recommendation was for the authorization of a new translation of the Bible, one that would be accessible to the common people and placed in every Church in his realm. Within three years a team of 47 scholars on six committees had begun work in Oxford, Cambridge and Westminster. The fruit of their labours was the Authorized Version published in 1611. Beautifully presented and based on scholarly research, this book traces the fascinating history of the AV from its earliest predecessors through its remarkable influence on the church, literature, and wider society.

    Many people take for granted the KJV, which has been around for 400 years. This short book gives a good history of the work that had to be done in making it the best translation of that time and even our time.

    If you believe that the KJV is what has always existed, this is a must read book.
