2011: 400 years of the KJV

A friend pointed out today that next year will be the 400th anniversary of the publication of the Authorized or King James Version of the Bible. I gather this tidbit has been floating around some circles, but only today did I become aware of it.

A bit of research shows that the year is as close we can come to publication date -- and it appears to be unknown whether it was finally authorized or not. But thanks to Fr. McGrath several years ago I read "God's Secretaries: The Making of the King James Bible" by Adam Nicholson, a very interesting read.

(Now if I could only find an Android app for the AKJV with Apocrypha, not to mention the 1928 BCP...)
