KJV 400: Celebrating the Life and Legacy of the King James Version of the Bible

The King James Version of the Bible marks its 400th year of publication in 2011, which will provide diverse opportunities to celebrate the KJV, including several marathon reading sessions, a History Channel documentary and a flipbook of an entire 1611 printing of the KJV. Reaction to the quadricentennial of the KJV varies widely. Some see the event as worthy of celebration while others stifle a yawn. The diversity of reaction reveals the disparity in perception of the grand old English translation.
