The King James Bible was a landmark in the history of the English language, and an inspiration to poets, dramatists, artists and politicians. Without the King James Bible there would have been no Paradise Lost, no Pilgrim's Progress, no Handel's Messiah. Yet more than a literary, even more than a religious influence, it was seen as a social, economic and political text. Those seeking to overthrow the English monarchy and those wanting to retain it, both sought support from the same Bible. So how did this remarkable translation come to be written? To answer this question is to throw open the doors of a world which was being transformed by the new technology of printing. In reading about the greatest English text ever produced we must close our eyes to our own world in which books are plentiful and readily available and enter another, very different universe...… (mere)

Very entertaining and informative; I ended up wishing for more information. ( )

I was curious how the King James Bible came to be, and Mr. McGrath well more than answered my question. Martin Luther started it all in the 1520s, ninety years later something like 30 Oxford and Cambridge scholars came together at King James's behest and, using Luther's bible as a guide, compiled the King James version of the Bible. Interesting fact: the book's English usage was considered archaic even back in the 1610s. Also, the word "atonement" was coined by the King James' consortium for a Hewbrew word that had no then-present equivalent. I could go on, but I won't. Go forth and read. ( )

I'm not a Biblical scholar or an authority on the history of the English language although both subjects are of interest to me. This is not a book for those looking to discredit Bible translation as a way to discredit Christian faith. Obviously, the author has a great deal of respect for those that took on this task. However, he doesn't shrink from telling all the "dirty laundry" associated with the translation and the acceptance of the KJV. If we think politics and religion get all mixed up today, we only have to read this to find that there is nothing new in the world.

All in all, I found this book interesting, easy to read (except for a few places), and enlightening. ( )

Although one does not hear much about "King James only" controversies in our midst anymore and only relatively veteran pastors used the KJV for a significant part of their ministries, yhe King James Bible is still of great interest as the most influential Bible translation ever.

Preface: I was born in 1953, the year of the coronation of Elizabeth II. Like every child born in Britain that year, I was given a copy of the Bible, by command of the queen.
Introduction: The two greatest influences on the shaping of the English language are the works of William Shakespeare and the English translation of the Bible that appeared in 1611. The King James Bible - named after the British king who ordered the production of a fresh translation in 1604 - is both a religious and literary classic.
Chapter 1: New technology promises new riches to its pioneers. The development and commercial exploitation of television and computer technology in the twentieth century made fortunes for many, just as the railway and oil industries created a new wealthy social class in nineteenth century Britain. In the fifteenth century, a new invention promised to revolutionise communications and generate untold riches for those fortunate enough to be in it from the beginning. ... for the story of the King James Bible, the invention of printing made it possible for ideas to sweep across Europe and the oceans of the world.
