The Legacy Of The King James Bible – Leland Ryken

I never expected a book about a certain translation of the Bible could be so enthralling.  I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  I was captivated by the story of how the King James Bible came to be from the first page.  Leland Ryken does a superb job of tracing the history of English translations then showing the remarkable influence that the King James Version has had over the years.  I started the book as someone who felt the KJV was a relic of the past, but by the end of the book I had a new appreciation and love for the King James Version.
