    Sounds great Jason! Thoroughly recommend ‘In the Beginning: The Story of the King James Bible and How It Changed a Nation, a Language, and a Culture’- a book by the Oxford theologian and historian Dr Alister McGrath.

    @PJ, Yeah, that is a great book. Perhaps we can get someone to review it here this year.

    Looking forward to it Jason. How about a post investigating whether William Shakespeare was a translator of the KJV, now that would be interesting!

    @ Steve, But then that might open the question of whether William Shakespeare really wrote William Shakespeare’s own work… =P

    Actually, I think Francis Bacon wrote Shakespeare’s work.

    Seriously though, some of the KJV translators were interesting characters, perhaps a post on them and their method of translation would be more enlightening and edifying.

    Hate to disagree with you Steve, but all of the 80 men who have at one time or another been thought to have written Shakespeare have been proven wrong. Besides, one only has to look at Francis Bacon to see that a Scientist who died while watching meat freeze simply does not EVER write Romeo and Juliet type stories. =)

    I think Shakespeare is the work of a woman. Women were not allowed to be authors back then, but many were published under their husband or friends’ names. I believe such was the case with Shakespeare.
