The New King James Version: In the Great Tradition
In 1975, the boldest, most extensive project in modern Bible publishing history began. 130 Bible scholars, pastors and communicators gathered with one goal in mind - to preserve the accuracy, authority and beauty of the King James Version while updating the language for modern readers. This book offers an insightful glance into the history of this event as only the Executive Editor, Arthur L. Farstad can tell. If you've ever thought that a room full of biblical scholars sorting through Hebrew and Greek was boring, then think again. Revealing the pain staking progress that each member of the committee made over the seven-year process, three distinct sections guide the reader through the purpose of the NKJV translation: Part One: Accuracy Part Two: Beauty Part Three: Completeness
