The New King James Version

  • Approximate Reading Level: Grade 7
  • First Published: 1982

Commissioned in 1975 by Thomas Nelson Publishers, 130 respected Bible scholars, church leaders, and lay Christians worked for seven years to create a completely new, modern translation of Scripture, yet one that would retain the purity and stylistic beauty of the original King James. With unyielding faithfulness to the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic texts, the translators applied the most recent research in archaeology, linguistics, and textual studies.

The result is a Bible that is both beautifully worded and trustworthy, ideal for study, teaching, personal reading, and congregational use. No wonder the NKJV over the last several years has consistently been the fastest-growing translation of the complete Bible, selected by more than 25 million customers since its release! The New King James Version is also endorsed by many of today's most prominent Christian leaders.
