Happy Birthday

Generally, I'm not all too good at math, but the KJV was first published in 1611, making its age easy to figure at 300 400 years old. A number of events are celebrating the rich history of this translation of God's Word, and here are a few links of note.

First, Grace Presbyterian Church held its KJV@400 conference this past week, featuring Leeland Ryken (on a related note, click the image on the right to order his book). Here are the MP3 downloads if you are interested:
  1. Dr. Ryken: What Makes the King James Version Great?
  2. Dr. Ryken: The King James Version as Cultural Influence through the Centuries
  3. Dr. Ryken: The King James Version and English Bible Translation Today
  4. Dr. Dodson: The Glory and Power of the Bible
  5. Dr. Dodson: William Tyndale: God's Translator

Second, there is a 90 minute documentary on the KJV now available. "KJB: The Book That Changed the World" features John Rhys-Davies, who fellow nerds might know as the professor from "Sliders" or Gimili from the "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Andy Naselli, who has already watched the film, opines that the "acting is well done" and explains that the "film focuses on the intriguing politics behind the making of the KJV." You can watch the 3-min trailer over at YouTube (Lionsgate is disallowing direct embedding at this time).

Third, if you are looking for more, Thomas Nelson has the following vids for your engorging (they are each only a few minutes long):
