Today In History

March 25, 1625: England's King James I dies. In 1604, at the Hampton Court Conference, James authorized the translation project that produced the 1611 King James (Authorized) Version of the Bible.

Above is a link to an extremely lively, readable, and interesting book about the translation and composition of the King James' Version, along with all of the political games and personalities that make history so eternal. [It was recommended to me by Bill Warren.]
