Hi PaulB,

Thanks for the posts. I always enjoy seeing these other perspectives, and appreciate the links.

The History of the English Bible article was good, but sadly ends with this statement: "Protestants today are largely unaware of their own history, and unaware of the Geneva Bible which is textually 95% the same as the King James Version, but 50 years older than the King James Version, and not influenced by the Roman Catholic Rheims New Testament. Nevertheless, the King James Bible turned out to be an excellent and accurate translation, and it became the most printed book in the history of the world, and the only book with one billion copies in print. In fact, for over 250 years until the appearance of the English Revised Version of 1881-1885, the King James Version reigned without much of a rival."
