400th Anniversary of King James Version of Bible

This year marks the 400th Anniversary of King James Version of Bible.

As good books go, you will not find many better than this good book itself. Dating from 1611, the King James version of the Bible celebrates its 400th anniversary this year. Oxford University Press is marking the occasion by publishing  a limited edition of the 1611 with real leather binding, gilt edging, ribbon marker, gift presentation plate, and protective cloth slipcase.

The King James Bible Trust has been established to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible which was completed in 1611. Throughout 2011, many Events and Projects will be taking place across the UK and around the World to mark the 400 years since the creation of the book that changed the world.

In Ireland, one of these events will see four hundred (400) volunteers will read the entire King James Version (1611) in All Saints’ Church Raheny, Dublin in a continuous event from Palm Sunday, 17 April (3 p.m.) to Holy Thursday, 21 April (6 p.m.).

The rector of All Saints, Rev Jim Carroll has invited members of the public to join with parishioners in reading sections of the Bible during the four days of this marathon event.
