Tedious. Repetitive. Inspiring.

The Legacy of the King James Bible honors the 400th anniversary of the KJB’s publication by telling its story—a drama that starts with the pioneering work of William Tyndale.

A good history of a Bible produced in 1611 which set the standards for translations for over 4 centuries. Attempting to maintain the balance between the zealotry of KJV supporters & zealotry of KJV haters, Mr. Leland manages to stay the course with the history & influence upon the English speaking world.

The author takes 40 hymn texts and studies them from a poetic standpoint. Each reading concludes with a scripture. I enjoyed this book but, although it’s formatted as a devotional, it’s too academic for me to think of it as a devotional. Still enjoyable to read and helpful to think through the richness of the older hymns which are at risk of dying out.
