You read the book, now watch the new movie based on Authorized by Mark Ward.
The King James Version is the most widely read Bible in the United States. But over the last 400 years, English has changed in subtle ways few modern readers will recognize. How much of it do we really understand today? What we think we know may be more dangerous than what we don’t.
In Authorized, Mark Ward builds a case that our Bibles should be readable by what we would call “the man on the street.” He shows what exclusive readers of the KJV are missing as they read God’s Word.
For those who are convinced of the superiority of the KJV, whether for stylistic, cultural, pedagogical, theological, or traditional reasons, this is the book to read. —D.A. Carson
