(1611) The most popular translation ever produced, this Bible was done during the reign and at the urging of King James the First of England.
47 scholars, divided into 6 groups, worked on this translation.
Based largely on the Bishop's Bible, many Hebrew and Greek texts were also studied as well as all other available English translations, to insure the best results. By choosing men of many different theological and educational backgrounds, it was hoped individual prejudices of the translators could be minimized. Despite initial resistance, the KJV became and still is the largest selling translation of the Bible.
For years the unique Thompson Chain-Reference system has been a favorite

preparation easier and more efficient. The Thompson Chain is also known
for its excellent archaeological supplement and extensive collection of
charts, diagrams, and other illustrations. Other features include a
revised concordance, 16 pages of full-color maps, words of Christ in
red, and Smythe Sewn reinforced tubular construction, which lies flat
and provides a durable binding that will hold up to heavy use for years.
