What motivated the men who gave us our Bible in English? Much of the answer lies in the turbulent religious history of the era, but there are clues which can be found in the prefaces published with each new edition.
This collection of the prefaces to the main translations of the Bible into English between 1525 and 1611 provides the historical and theological ancestry of the King James Version, and readers can hardly fail to be challenged by the spiritual concerns of the translators.
