Dove Review
This is a fascinating look at the world’s most famous Bible, the King James Version of the Bible. This fantastic DVD features great cinematography, shots inside beautiful churches and in the country, re-enactments of events of the sixteenth century, a remarkable host in John Rhys-Davies with his booming voice, and the scholarly minilectures of expert scholars. This intriguing documentary will inform and educate and each viewer will have a whole new appreciation of the King James Bible after viewing it. The content includes a man with a bloody wound and a strong word as well as a mature theme so we are recommending it for ages twelve and above. Some parents who first view it might find their younger children are mature enough to absorb this educational and nicely crafted DVD. Learn the history leading up to the crowning of King James. Learn of various events of the time by expert scholars such as Dr. William Storrar, Professor Carl Trueman, Dr. Ashley Null, Professor William G. Naphy and others. The viewer will learn more about King James, the man who believed God guided him and who was born a Catholic but became a protestant. The background of the making and printing of this Bible is brought to life including the story of a faction which nearly resulted in the loss of lives. This interesting documentary is happily awarded our Dove Seal and five Doves, our highest rating. Step into the past to be educated today. John Rhys-Davies of "Lord of the Rings" and "Indiana Jones" fame is your gracious host who uses his familiar voice to read from the King James Bible himself.
