The Story of the king James Version In 1604; King James I met with England's religious leaders to discuss various issues. A surprising outcome was the decision to publish a new Bible translation. Some fifty scholars gathered at Westminster; Cambridge; and Oxford to work on the project. The end result in 1611 was a new translation of the Word of God--the King James Bible. In The Book That Changed the World; a group of Seventh-day Adventist scholars make a fresh contribution on the King James Version so that you will gain a deeper appreciation of this faith classic. Reading this book will encourage you to read the Bible and will help you to see it in a new light. The Bible is God's message. It changed the world in the seventeenth century; and more than four hundred years later; it is still changing the world.
