When God spoke English,
This review is from: When God Spoke English: The Making of the King James Bible (Paperback)
An excellent study of the background, personalities and principles behind the KJV demonstrating why it was so popular and remains for many the ONLY proper translation in English of the Hebrew and Greek text. Full of gems that delight the reader. Easy to read which is also a plus. Well researched which is crucial to for those who want real information and not mere conjecture.
It should be noted that it has appeared with three different titles at various times.
1. Power and Glory. Jacobean England and the making of the King James Bible.
2. God's Secretaries. The making of the King James Bible
3. When God spoke English. The making of the king James Bible
