The Thrilling True Story of the Birth of the King James Bible
“A fascinating look at the world’s most famous Bible.” – The Dove Foundation
In January 1604, King James I of England convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English Version of the Holy Bible was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations. Completed in 1611, this new translation–the King James Bible–became the Bible for the masses.
400 years later, in celebration of this monumental book, take a walk through history with Lord of the Rings star John Rhys-Davies, as he visits the landmarks, shows you the relics, and introduces dramatizations of the events leading to the King James Bible’s creation. This exciting docu-drama, produced by the BBC’s Norman Stone, features fast-paced action scenes that depict the holy passion, divine guidance, human frailty, and sometime treachery that surrounded the creation of the best-selling book of all time!
“Enter the world of Jacobean England and discover the story behind the King James Bible. Narrated by John Rhys-Davies and with a cameo appearance by Westminster Theological Seminary professor, Dr. Carl Trueman, this exciting and informative docu-drama chronicles the events and personalities that led to the translating of the monumental King James Bible. I enjoyed watching this video and encourage you to see the trailer.” – Micah Bickford, Westminster Theological Seminary bookstore staff
