The everlasting literary power of this phenomenal volume is unarguable. But how did this remarkable work originate? What were the historical circumstances driving its completion? What sorts of errors (many of them outright hysterical) crept into the translation? Why does it still outsell every other English translation?
Verily, Verily offers an informative, inspirational, and light-hearted look into how the world's most popular Bible was created and why it is still important. Jon M. Sweeney reflects on the cultural importance, spiritual value, beautiful phrasings, and occasional humor of the King James Bible. And Sweeny shows why the KJV has been the most important entry into the Christian scriptures for the English-speaking world and offers a new understanding of why it is still worth reading.

An interesting listen
I liked the breadth of knowledge the author showed about so many aspects of the KJV, its origins, and its contributors and benefactors, including historical, biographical, linguistic and theological details. Well worth a read or two. Makes me want to read the KJV again too.
