This collection of essays on the subjects of King James, his Bible, and its translators is the result of painstaking, original research, with an emphasis on primary sources. Seven of these fifteen essays appear here for the first time. Eight of them have appeared over the years in a variety of publications, and most of these in two or more publications. Some of these have also appeared online. They have all been revised in varying degrees for publication in this collection of essays. Some have been completely rewritten. The first four relate to the origin and translators of King James s Bible. The next three explore the translators finished product. Essays eight and nine deal with the nature of the Authorized Version in the context of English Bible history. The last six essays address certain issues that relate to the Authorized Version. These essays are not a rephrasing or a retelling of what can readily be found in a standard work on English Bible history. In fact, some of them are designed to correct the errors and misconceptions that are unfortunately too prevalent in the material written about the Authorized Version.
Reviews about King James, His Bible, and Its Translators (7):

Fairly good history of the translation of the 1611 KJV. Not the whole story, but close enough.
The most interesting part for me is the revelation that King James promoted the word "church" were "congregation" was the more correct translation. James promoted the idea of an institution, a legal fiction such as government, over the idea of a group of like minded people. That confusion exists today, as many people look at a building and call it a church whereas in fact the people gathered to worship are the church.
James hated the Geneva notes which exploded the myth of the divine right of kings.

Dr. Vance reminds us of the beauty, the grandeur, the stateliness of the KJV. Not only does he present the KJV as the prime example of the English language at its best, he compares it with the DDVs (Dumbed-Down Versions), thereby showing that not only is the Textus Receptus on which the KJV is based is superior to the Alexandrian texts, but that the KJV translators were superior to today's translators in learning and scholarship. In a world in which "modern" is almost always considered "better", he goes into great detail about the remarkable qualifications of the KJV translators. This book is a much needed work, for the magnificent KJV may someday be in danger of extinction due to a landslide of modern translations as well as to misrepresentation of its accuracy and relevance.

This is a collection of 15 essays covering a wide range of topics having to do with the King James Bible. There are essays on King James, on the translators, on various editions of the KJB, and on more technical aspects of the KJB such as word counts and grammar. It is a rich collection, well worth the reading and the rereading.

Seven of the essays are published for the first time, while eight have been previously published in various forms. This means that some of the information is repeated, but I actually found that helpful. Because the essays were written over a period of years for various reasons and with various audiences in mind, each essay is self-contained, which allows the reader to select essays of immediate interest by referring to the Table of Contents. If you want information on the ancestry of King James, read the first essay. If you want information on the origins of King James `Onlyism' you can go directly to the two essays focused on that topic. If you want to find an essay on the inspired nature of the KJB one can find essays on that as well (I particularly enjoyed the eighth essay, "Purified Seven Times").

These essays are the fruit of the author's decades of study and scholarly activity. The reader benefits greatly by this background of dedicated study. The book is well made, with large enough print to be easily readable, and bound well. The bibliography at the back of the book is a great resource for those who wish to continue their study of the `noblest monument to English literature', the King James Bible.

This book is of a reasonable type size,well spaced andclear to read.It is however intricate and very complete in its coverage of what the King James Bible is and is not.It is not a pro King James book as much as it sounds,its simply a book about the King James Bible.If you want to know about the translators,where they met,their notes and want a complete history of the King James Bible origin in a small concise book this is for you. To me --some of it was dry,giving the ancestry of King James,and other places.

There is also a complete Biblography in the back that is very detailed.

One point that was not given I feel I must add to this book is the fact that the some Christians reject the King James Bible as the perfect word of God because they do not want an ultimate authority ruling over their lives.For example if the NIV was suddenly pronounced as the perfect word of God there would be many rejectors of that version as well simply because if there is no perfect version,then people can feel free to do what they want because there is no ultimate authority in all faith and practice.
