400th Anniversary

As the Virginia Hugenot reported, May 2, 2011, is the 400th anniversary of the first printing of the King James or “Authorized” Version of the Bible. Whether or not you agree with my assessment that it is still the best widely-available English translation of the Bible or not, this is cause for celebration. Notwithstanding the motives the King who authorized its translation, the King James Version has proved to be a treasure for the last four centuries, and will doubtless continue to be in the next one.
