-- "The Legacy of the King James Bible" by Leland Ryken (Crossway, 2011). Ryken's book focuses on the translation of the King James Bible and its impact on the world.

-- "The Story of the Bible" by Larry Stone (Thomas Nelson, 2010). Stone's book tells the 3,500 story of Bible translation and comes with 23 life-size removable pages that are copies from pages of some of the world's most important Bibles.

DVDS

-- "KJB: The Book that Changed the World" (Lionsgate, 2010). In this 90-minute documentary mixed with drama, actor John Rhys-Davies travels to landmarks throughout the United Kingdom that were key to the translation of the King James Version.

-- "KJV: The Making of the King James Bible" (Vision Video, 2010). In a 45-minute documentary that also includes drama, director Jerry Griffith shows how the English world's division over various Bible translations in the 1500s and early 1600s provided a motive to coalesce around one common Bible, the King James Version.
