The Authorized King James Version has made its mark on the world. Whether in terms of Biblical scholarship, contributions to the English language, or innumerable touched lives, the KJV has a longstanding and weighty tradition. The Authorized KJV was published in 1611 under the authority of King James I of England and rapidly overtook the Latin Vulgate in popularity. It was soon the Bible used by English speaking Protestants everywhere.
Unrivaled in historical accuracy and literary beauty, the King James Bible has been described as one of the most important books in English culture and a driving force in the shaping of the English-speaking world.
Christopher Glyn's talented voice and knowledge of the text creates a rich and nuanced listening experience in this Old Testament edition. His emotive reading captures the beauty, power and depth of God's Word, making the King James English clear and easy to understand.
