"... a fascinating work on the King James Bible... [T]hese essays are a cut above the typical book touting the King James on its 400th Anniversary. Many of the essays offer profound historical insights and analysis on the King James Bible."―FundamentallyReformed.com
"Contemporary scholars such as David Bebbington, Alister McGrath, Philip Jenkins and Laura Knoppers share the results of their in-depth study."―The Washington Post
"An international array of acknowledged experts here focus on a theme of obvious historical and contemporary significance. This is first-rate scholarship and commands much attention."―Trevor A. Hart, Professor of Divinity, University of St Andrews, Scotland
"This outstanding collection of essays by accomplished and learned scholars provides a host of insights into the religious and cultural impact of the King James Bible over these four centuries. I highly recommend this book for those who wish to learn more about this powerful, beautiful, and influential translation of the Bible."―David F. Watson, Associate Professor of New Testament and Associate Dean for Master's Programs, United Theological Seminary
"Carefully crafted and dignified. This volume leaves no doubt that the King James Version has served as the most authentic voice of scripture for more than three centuries―and raises important questions about the absence of any such standard in the church today."―Hans Boersma, J.I. Packer Professor of Theology, Regent College
"Every person who wishes to understand the importance of the KJV should read it and I warmly recommend it."―Daniel Jeyaraj, Liverpool Hope University, Theological Book Review
"... a well-done collection of essays."―Mark S. Krause, Nebraska Christian College, Stone-Campbell Journal
"Altogether, the essays in this volume approach the KJV from a variety of trajectories, addressing issues that should be helpful to readers interested in the continuing presence of the 1611 translation in contemporary culture. Like the Bible itself, the collection contains both unity and diversity. The tension is perhaps a strength of the volume; it is a testament to the KJV's complex history. And after all, they are writing about a book that contains the messages of both Qoheleth and Jesus―and both are equally the word of God."―Armond Boudreaux, East Georgia State College, Sixteenth Century Journal
" this work is to be commended and studied with pleasure by all who value the impetus of the KJB."―Francis Dalrymple-Hamilton, Review of Biblical Literature
