2011 marks the 400th anniversary of the publication of the most influential book in English and American history: the King James Version Bible (KJV). What better way is there to celebrate this occasion by reading it? Consider joining me and many others as we take on this rewarding challenge.
Yes, the language is antiquated. But it also has a beautiful rhythm to it. Another advantage I have noticed in reading the King James is how it causes me to slow down and concentrate more. Because the language is more difficult, it forces me to think more about what I am reading, which creates a great opportunity for me to meditate on the meaning.
