King James Bible and the “Revolution It Inspired”
This 6-week online course covers the history of the English Bible up to and including the King James Version. The discussion begins with a brief overview of the origin of the Bible; then we move on to the background history of Medieval Europe and England, Wycliffe, Erasmus and Humanism, Martin Luther, and William Tyndale. Also included will be a discussion of Protestantism, its relation to the King James Bible, and its impact on Roman Catholicism. The final question that will be addressed is: Why do we need “the inspired Word of the Bible” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, page 497)?
