An Appreciation of the KJV

400 Years of the KJV

via Books Inq.

When I want to be lost in the sheer majesty of language, in the deep history of our literature, in mastery and beauty--there are few places to find it better than in the KJV.  Admittedly, if one wishes to study, analyze, and otherwise participate in scholarly Biblical research, it may not be the best.  But it certainly is more ear-considerate than many of the thundering, thudding, thunking modern translations.


  1. Steven,

    Agreed. It's one of the world's literary masterpieces.
