KJV400 Links

In honor of the 400th anniversary of the first publishing of the King James Version of the Holy Bible, I’m starting a blog article to serve as a sort of repository for links to articles written about this monumental work. If you know of other resources – articles, blogs, etc about the KJV or its 400th anniversary, please contribute in the comments section below.

I’ll try to continue to update this posting as I find more information.

  1. Thanks John, especially for the link to the trust. I wonder if the KJVO Debates blog know about this. The site looks like a really useful resource. I may try to find a spot on my blog for a link to it.

    • I’ll send Bob a link about it. I just “liked” the KJBT Facebook fan page. Are you on Facebook? When I saw the composition awards, I looked to see if I could enter, just for the fun of it, but it’s for young folks–I would’ve had to have been born after 1980. I was going to see if I could enter my “Old King James” song 😉

  2. The original 1611 King James Bible has the authentic spellings, capitalization, and punctuation used by the translators themselves, before centuries of changes began to occur. Set in roman type for easy reading. Includes the marginal notes of the translators, the Apocrypha, and the full preface, “From the Translators to the Reader.” — $31.49
