Mary Baker Eddy Library event shines spotlight on the King James Bible
On October 25, in celebration of the King James Bible’s 400th anniversary, The Mary Baker Eddy Library hosted the Massachusetts Bible Society for an event in its annual Beck Lecture Series. The featured speaker was Adam Nicolson, author of God’s Secretaries: The Making of the King James Bible.
God’s Secretaries is a thorough portrait of the creation of the King James Bible, and how the work of 54 translators resulted in this monumental political, metaphysical, and poetic achievement. “The majesty, grace, and sonority” of the language is at the same time accessible—an “amalgam of the plain and the rich, with a high fidelity to the original texts,” said Nicholson.
