Scholars converge on the influence of the King James Version of the Bible in shaping English language. Boulding's passion for the KJV in this hardback gift-book of 116 devotional readings as part of the celebrations for the 400th anniversary of a classic Bible translation, first published in 1611 yet still appreciated around the world today, shines through. This is a valid effort to recapture some of the riches of language and the deep messages amidst BRF's contribution to Biblefresh's 2011 year of the Bible.
The afterward essay offers much in terms of KJV depth rather than the arbiatry revisited devotionals from previous New Daylight publications. The themes that coexist here are curious as Lamentations, Holy Week, the Nativity and the ideal woman of Proverbs 31 are strange spiritual companions! It acquaints the reader with the language strength of many "thees and thous" but not much more than this! Lots by way of style but little sustainable substance.
