The Holy Bible
For four centuries the English-speaking world has been inspired by the language and the ideas of the King James Version of the Bible. The anniversary of its publication in 1611 is being celebrated around the world in many different ways. The next event in Edmonton will talke place at Robertson-Wesley United Church. The guest lecturer is Dr. Catherine Eddy, until recently a faculty member in the Department of English at Concordia in Edmonton. Catherine will address the hundred-year long attempt to translate this version of the Bible, and why its language still captivates us today.
