This paper analyzes King James' influence on the Bible and discusses how the King James version was presented as the final version and absolute word of God that became the traditional Bible of English-speaking Protestants. The paper concludes that for all its inaccuracies, archaisms, and insistently Jacobean rhythm and tone, it remains the closest we have come to the distinctive experience of the original.

From the Paper:

"King James VI born, James Charles Stuart, on June 19, 1566 was known as the Infant King for his father was killed when he was one year old and his Mary Queen of Scots, abdicated the Scottish throne in his favor on July 24, 1567. James was crowned King James VI of Scotland when he was 13 months. King James got tutorage from George Buchanan, a Calvinist who made him an intellectual with a thirst for knowledge. He was well versed in Latin and history, composition, arithmetic cosmography, dialectics, and theology. He was fluent in various languages and became the most learned King in decades. Through his intellect and strategic achievement King James became the first monarch to unite Scotland, England and Ireland into Great Britain and later helped to present and compile the Authorized King James Version of the Bible which was given patronage as the 'Holy Bible so that they could be saved and fed from the Word of God.'
