The Bible: King James Version (KJV) by The Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

'The story of the KJV powerfully resonates with Isaiah's words, that the Word of God is stronger and more powerful than we can imagine.

This full text edition of the ever-popular Authorised King James Version Bible includes both the Old and New Testaments, with all its literary beauty and poetic grandeur. Presented in a white and de-bossed foil cover, it is the cornerstone of the William Collins 200-year anniversary celebration.

For 400 years, the King James Version of the Bible has represented the epitome of the English language in all its power and glory.

Across continents and cultures, its language has changed how we speak, and its message has changed how we live. Loved by many and despised by some, this is a book that has changed the world.

'It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of the King James Bible and its impact on the English-speaking world. Scripture in the vernacular, available widely, one authorised translation to shape the Church, a translation mandated by the king, tying together Church and State. And beyond all practical details, a beautiful, poetic, majestic translation that has stood the test of time. The King James Bible is a wonderful work of literature, and the bedrock of the English language.'

The Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby
Archbishop of Canterbury

(Extract from Foreward)
