Gordon Campbell describes the process by which the King James Version of the Bible, one of the most important works in the English language, was commissioned, translated and published. It is a story of politics as well as religion, of a talented group of translators and of thousands of printers' errors, accidental and deliberate, introduced in the first 150 years of its life; but it is also a story which continues today, through arguments over revisions and its legacy to our language and literature.
