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.

From the Queen of Erotica, Addicted tells the provocative story of one married woman’s struggle to deal with the fall-out of her forbidden desires. The world of Addicted is continued in the New York Times bestseller Nervous, and Zane’s highly-anticipated upcoming novel Vengeance, available May 24, 2016.
For successful businesswoman Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: a charmed marriage to her childhood sweetheart, a thriving company, and three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction…to sex.
After finding a compassionate therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets, to the rough and violent man who leads her toward destruction, Zoe is desperately searching for fulfillment—and, perhaps, something darker and deeper.
As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous fate, Zoe races to uncover the source of her “fatal attraction.” Chilling secrets tumble forth and perilous temptations build toward a climax that could threaten her sanity, her marriage…and her life.
Jonquinette Pierce has never felt comfortable around men—except when she’s her alter ago, Jude, who takes over on the weekends to lead a life of wild and intense sexual escapades. Jonquinette knows she can’t keep living like this and sets out to overcome her split personality with the help of Dr. Marcella Spencer.
But Jude isn’t about to let Jonquinette off so easily. Just as Jonquinette begins falling for her hot neighbor, Mason, Jude decides she’s had enough and goes on a sexual rampage to keep her alter ego from riding off into the sunset.
Nervous takes readers back into the world of Addicted and keeps them hooked until the very end.
THE Sex CHRONICLES
SHATTERING THE MYTH
Anyone who thinks that men are by nature more sexual than women or that African-American women are especially inhibited hasn't read Zane. Here, she presents an erotic read in three parts: Wild, Wilder, and Off Da Damn Hook. With a unique ability to tell it like it is -- and also to tell it like it could be in your wildest dreams -- Zane crafts stories about everyone from the sensual housewife who wants her husband to experiment more to a secret underground sorority of women that organizes some rather unconventional social events. By turns tender and outrageous, The Sex Chronicles is a pleasure from beginning to end.
Jemistry Daniels, the beautiful, intelligent, six-figures-a-year high school principal, suffered through one bad relationship after another. No wonder she adopted the “friends with benefits” mentality when it came to men. For Jemistry, there was to be no “catching feelings.” Her biggest mistake would be to open her heart again.
When Dr. Tevin Harris meets Jemistry at a poetry reading in a café, he knows from her confessional writing that her past with men has been difficult. The prominent vascular surgeon, who has been only casually dating for years, is attracted to the embittered Jemistry nonetheless. With a little persistence, Tevin convinces Jemistry to go out with him. She has baggage, but so does he. What about his divorce?
Despite their respective pasts, Jemistry and Tevin’s chemistry is right and the relationship takes off, but not without bumps in the road. When Jemistry encounters her new beau in a compromising position with her bisexual best friend, what follows is an intense, sensuous, and unforgettable drama with surprises around every turn.
APF stands for Alpha Phi F***em, a sorority dedicated to sexual freedom and the fulfillment of its members. Zane's APF stories have appeared in her earlier collections, including The Sex Chronicles: Shattering the Myth, and are favorites among her readers.
Many readers have written to Zane and asked to join the sorority or to launch a new chapter in their region. APF is fantasy, but the enthusiasm of Zane's fans is real. So now, with The Sisters of APF, she's offering readers what they want, a book-length story chronicling the adventures—and recruitment process—of the fearlessly sexy women of APF.

After Mary Ann becomes smitten with Trevor, the campus playboy, Patricia is determined to show Mary Ann how not to be a victim, but rather how to outdo the players and heartbreakers. She indoctrinates Mary Ann into the ranks of the sexiest secret society ever: the sisters of APF.
