In 1604, the newly crowned King James I of England convened the Hampton Court Conference. That gathering proposed a new English version in response to the perceived problems of earlier translations as detected by the Puritan faction of the Church of England. King James authorized a new translation of the Bible into English be started. It was finished in 1611.

The task of translation was undertaken by 47 scholars, all were members of the Church of England. This Authorized Version, or King James Version, was translated primarily from Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic texts. A primary concern of the translators was to produce a Bible that would be appropriate, dignified and resonant in public reading. Hence, in a period of rapid linguistic change, they avoided contemporary idioms, tending instead towards forms that were already slightly archaic.

The King James version quickly became the standard for English-speaking Protestants. Its flowing language and prose rhythm has had a profound influence on the literature of the past 300 years. The King James Bible is the most familiar and widely read Bible translation in the world, recognized for centuries as both a religious and literary classic.

The invention of the printing press made the Bible universally available, and now the technology of eBooks once again makes the Bible more usable than ever before. The King James Bible in eBook format can be searched, bookmarked, highlighted, and printed at will, making it an excellent academic resource and also very accessible for everyday use.
