KJV@400: A Story of Biblical Proportions
A special conference on the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible will be held at Houston Baptist University, October 28-29, 2011. The 17th century scholars who translated the Bible into English under the auspices of King James of England could not have begun to imagine the influence and impact of their work over the course of four centuries. The Dunham Bible Museum of Houston Baptist University will host KJV@400: A Story of Biblical Proportions as a forum for 21st century scholars to commemorate and consider this significant Bible translation made 400 years ago. The KJV@400 Conference will consider the historic background of the King James Bible, and its cultural influence on England, America, and around the globe. The Conference will complement the major exhibit KJV@400: From Hampton Court, around the Globe and to the Moon.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Donald Brake (Dean Emeritus, Multnomah Seminary)
- Gerald Bray (Beeson Divinity School)
- Leonard Greenspoon (Creighton University)
- David Jeffrey (Baylor University)
