This is a well crafted historical document, weaving together the intricacies of the political and religious context that gave birth to the King James's Bible. And like John Rhys-Davies says we all have a copy somewhere under our own roofs.
'KJB - The Book That Changed The World' provides a majestic journey through the corridors and rooms once traversed by the very characters that shaped the culture and society, both in Scotland and England, of the late 16th and early 17th centuries. The cinematography is spell-bounding, meticulously woven together in editing to highlight the finely detailed script, presented by John Rhys-Davies. The storytelling pulls together, seamlessly, the dramatic moments of reconstruction, with academic insight from contemporary scholars. For those fascinated by costumes from late Elizabethan, Jacobean and Stuart Periods, this will be a feast. A highly commended feature length documentary and reconstructions by producer and director, Norman Stone.
It is great to see a film present a well-balance account of the spiritual developments of England and Scotland through the events that led to the Authorised English translation of the Holy Bible.
