The Legacy of the King James Bible

Full Product Description

The King James Version (KJV) Bible was first published in 1611 and has become both iconic and one of the oldest pieces of literature known to man. Written in traditional English speaking language, the KJV Bible has had a huge impact on English and American culture in all walks of life, such as law, education, government, art, science and religion.

It is the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible and to celebrate this landmark, 'The Legacy of the King James Bible' tells the story of such a pioneering piece of literature. This is a drama that begins with the work of William Tyndale and delves into the history of other popular translations.

Leland Ryken, a passionate and expert explorer of the Bible, explores the excellence of the King James Bible in terms of; standing above and holding its status as the climax of a century of English Bible translations, its impression on history of Bible translations, its literary excellence, and its overall impact on English and American literature and culture.

'The Legacy of the King James Bible' reveals the depth of the translation’s merit over the past 400 years and further discusses what influence the translation may have over the next 400 years.

The book has been met with critical acclaim. Alistair McGrath (Professor of Historical Theology, Oxford University) describes the book as “A very accessible and informed guide to this magisterial English translation of the Bible. Few will fail to benefit from its wisdom and learning.”
