Holy Bible, New King James Version (NKJV)
Publication date: February 2009
Digital Book format: ePub (Adobe DRM)
Seven years in the making, the new translation of the King James Bible, put together by 130 biblical scholars, theologians and church leaders, was first published in 1982. These experts went back to the original languages of the testaments – Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew – and retranslated them using the most current linguistic research.
Commissioned in 1975 by Thomas Nelson Publishers, 130 respected Bible scholars, church leaders, and lay Christians worked for seven years to create a completely modern edition of the King James Version that would continue the classic tradition of the original King James. With unyielding faithfulness to the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic texts, the translators applied the most recent research in archaeology, linguistics, and textual studies. The resulting work provides today's Bible reader with an accurate and modern translation of the Scriptures with the stylistic beauty and memorable quality of the King James.
