Celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the KJV
with Princeton Seminary

This year marks the quadricentennial of a Bible that has inspired countless church members, pastors, theologians, artists, and writers. This unique program addresses the question: On the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible, what hath King James wrought?


You’ll join distinguished Princeton Seminary faculty, church leaders, and members of your congregation and other churches to explore how the KJV, or Authorized Version, has influenced language, literature, culture, and faith for 400 years. You will:
•    Expand your KJV knowledge
•    Increase your appreciation of its language
•    Discuss biblical translations
•    Explore using the Bible in your personal devotion and public worship
