About the author


The King James Version (KJV), also known as the Authorized Version (AV) or King James Bible (KJB), is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England that 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 (1535), and the second was the Bishops' Bible of 1568. In January 1604, 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.  The translation is widely considered a towering achievement in English literature, as both beautiful and scholarly.

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.[6] The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England.[7] In common with most other translations of the period, the New Testament was translated from Greek, the Old Testament was translated from Hebrew and Aramaic text, while theApocrypha was 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 (but not for the Psalter which has retained substantially Coverdale's Great Bible version) and as such was authorized by Act of Parliament.

The goal of a true disciple of Christ Jesus is to become like his Master. This entails the disciple learning all he or she can about who the Master is, how the Master thinks, what He values and devalues, His priorities, His focus, and His motivation. The best way to get to know Him and what kind of person He truly is, is to learn it directly from Him. Jesus has made it possible for all who desire to follow Him, to get to know Him intimately. He has directed His servants, over a thousand years, to write it all down so anyone can read of Him and understand what they read. You don’t need a college degree. Nor do you need to be highly intelligent. All you really need is the Holy Spirit, a passionate desire, and someone to provide you a road map. This book, along with the aid of the Holy Spirit, is your road map.

For those seeking God and the new Christian, as well as for those who consider themselves to be mature Christians, this book removes the mystery from the Bible. It’s like having a patient instructor walk you through the Bible in a clear and easy to follow style.
