Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0840700415, Hardcover)Shortly after inheriting the throne of England in the midst of violent religious strife, King James I called together the country's leading churchmen and theologians at Hampton Court, "for the hearing, and for the determining, of things pretended to be amiss in the Church."
Out of that conference came the memorable decision to commission a new translation of the Holy Scriptures. King James I eagerly approved the idea in the hope that this new translation might help avert civil war by uniting the religious factions within his country. The uniform translation, since called the "King James Version," dramatically affected the course of development of the English-speaking world.
Nelson's reprint of the King James Version of the Bible is a faithful reproduction of the original text set in modern typeface for better readability. The decorative initials and border designs are from a 1911 edition.
