“No other version of the Bible in English has ever equaled or even approached the influence, acceptance, and authority of the King James Version (KJV) among English-speaking peoples. The overall impact of the KJV during its 350-year reign as the standard English Bible is incalculable. As an accurate, authoritative translation of the original Hebrew and Greek texts of the Word of God, it has guided the English church into all truth, taught us the whole counsel of God, and stood as a bulwark against false teachers and their heresies…The purpose of this essay, therefore, is to take a look at the excellence of the AV and some of the factors that caused it to become the most authoritative and widely used English version ever.”—from the Introduction
