2011 marks the 400th anniversary

2011 marks the 400th anniversary of "the single most important publication in whole of history: it was the book which laid the foundations of the United Kingdom" and her North American & antipodal cousins, and her Commonwealth and her Communion. http://bit.ly/h9ciBD
"Yet there is something of the majesty and grandeur of God Himself in this translation: its cadences are poetic perfection and its vocabulary is a breath away from divinity. Coming during the life of Shakespeare, in the years immediately following his greatest tragedies and his richest poetry, one senses the imprimatur of the Bard himself upon the heavenly spark of Godhead." ibid. http://bit.ly/h9ciBD
"The truth is that the KJV is good enough for any English speaker, more majestic than any other version, and that it is a foundation of the English-speaking world more than even Shakespeare is. How this astonishing book came to be composed is Adam Nicolson's story in _God's Secretaries: The Making of the King James Bible_ (HarperCollins). It is a successful account of how diverse personalities, European history, and religious fashions produced a timeless classic." http://amzn.to/gLrqtm
