The "King James Version," also known as the "Authorized King James Version" (KJV) came out in 1611. And despite its age, the KJV remains the most influential, according to many bible historians.

But as WGVU religion reporter David Moore learned,
most folks are unaware not only of the events leading up to its publication, but also of exactly what the English monarch had to do with it.

Today on Midday West Michigan, we chat with Calvin College Professor of English Dr. Susan Felch, Director of the Calvin Center for Christian Scholarship and an authority on the history of the "King James Version."

Calvin is also offering several exhibits and events focusing on the "King James Version." For details, visit
