The King James Version of the Bible was published in 1611. For two centuries the KJV competed for readership with the Geneva Bible. However by the nineteenth century in America, the KJV would be described as the “common English Bible,” because it was the most widely used translation of Christian Scripture. Numerous translations have appeared since that time. However, it has proven difficult to combine concern for accuracy and accessibility in one translation, which the typical reader or worshipper would be able to understand. Therefore, readers in the twenty-first century, four hundred years after the creation of the KJV, need and deserve a new translation, which is suitable for personal devotion, for communal worship, and classroom study.
