    King James, His Bible, and Its Translators 

larger image

Laurence M. Vance
Published by Vance Publications ()

This collection of essays on the subjects of King James, his Bible, and its translators is the result of painstaking, original research, with a strict emphasis on primary sources. Fifteen of these twenty-seven essays appeared in the first edition of this book. All but two have been revised for publication in this new edition. Seven of the twelve new essays appear here for the first time. The other five have been previously published, but four of them have likewise been revised for publication here. 

The first four essays relate to the origin of King James’s Bible. Essays five through ten relate to the translators and their work. Essays eleven through fifteen explore the translators’ finished product. Essays sixteen through nineteen deal with the nature of the Authorized Version in the context of English Bible history. Essays twenty through twenty-six address certain issues that relate to the Authorized Version. The last essay provides an overview of the King James Bible that was specifically written to commemorate its 400th anniversary. 

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.

Before the English founded Jamestown in the Virginia Colony on May 14, 1607, work had already begun on what has been called "the noblest monument of English prose." The year 2011 marks the quatercentenary, or four-hundredth anniversary, of its publication.
