A New Edition of This Book Is Now Available

This collection of essays on the subjects of King James, his Bible, and its translators is the result of painstaking, original research, with an emphasis on primary sources. Seven of these fifteen essays appear here for the first time. Eight of them have appeared over the years in a variety of publications, and most of these in two or more publications. Some of these have also appeared online. They have all been revised in varying degrees for publication in this collection of essays. Some have been completely rewritten. The first four relate to the origin and translators of King James's Bible. The next three explore the translators' finished product. Essays eight and nine deal with the nature of the Authorized Version in the context of English Bible history. The last six essays address certain issues that relate to the Authorized Version. These essays are not a rephrasing or a retelling of what can readily be found in a standard work on English Bible history. In fact, some of them are designed to correct the errors and misconceptions that are unfortunately too prevalent in the material written about the Authorized Version.
