Bible : Old and New Testaments (King James Version)
include History of King James Bible and their work.
The King James Version (KJV), commonly
known as the Authorized Version (AV) or King James Bible (KJB), is an English
translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England begun in 1604 and
completed in 1611. First printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker, this was
the third translation into English to be approved by the English Church
authorities. The first was the Great Bible commissioned in the reign of King
Henry VIII, and the second was the Bishops' Bible of 1568. In January 1604,
King James I convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version
was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations
as detected by the Puritans, a faction within the Church of England.
James gave the translators instructions
intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology
and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its belief in
an ordained clergy. The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were
members of the Church of England. In common with most other translations of the
period, the New Testament was translated from Greek, the Old Testament was
translated from Hebrew text, while the Apocrypha were translated from the Greek
and Latin. In the Book of Common Prayer (1662), the text of the Authorized
Version replaced the text of the Great Bible – for Epistle and Gospel readings
– and as such was authorized by Act of Parliament. By the first half of the
18th century, the Authorized Version was effectively unchallenged as the
English translation used in Anglican and Protestant churches. Over the course
of the 18th century, the Authorized Version supplanted the Latin Vulgate as the
standard version of scripture for English speaking scholars. Today, the most
used edition of the King James Bible, and often identified as plainly the King
James Version, especially in the United States, closely follows the standard
text of 1769, edited by Benjamin Blayney at Oxford.

Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .
After. Nothing is ever the same.
After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri's birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's-and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can't wait for their real lives beyond the Academy's iron gates to begin. But Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he's out there, somewhere.
She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. And this time he won't rest until Rose joins him... forever.
He’d rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa—the one she has sworn to protect no matter what—and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago. But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the person she loves most?
"Speak up for yourself--we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. In Laurie Halse Anderson's powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself.
