Archbishop of Canterbury celebrates 400th anniversary of the King James Bible

Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams delivered his New Year message, and within it addressed the impact of the King James Bible. The King James version of the Bible is an English translation that began work in 1604 and began publication in 1611.

Consequently, this year marks the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. Archbishop Williams said that things move on but it is a good thing to have some "long-lasting furniture in our minds."

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
