The King James version of the Bible is my favorite-
Consider this- the debauched/pervert King James- organized a group of great Christian scholars - (think of the number of lexicons that were accessed !) to write a Bible translation that could be read by all-
Does God Have Sense of Humor or What!! Using a debauched "royal" to make His Word accessible to the world --
Since I believe that poetry must be read aloud to get the full value of the message- I also believe that the Poetic --KJV of the Bible-- must be read aloud -to get the full value of God's Message--THUS- I have read the KJV MANY Times -Aloud!!
I Had my students and my Homeschooled Off-Spring- memorize this poem:
Poetry is the Wisdom of the Ages
It Can Be Found In Books-
On Certain Pages-
To Remove from It a Vagueness or a Cloud-
It Must Be Spoken Often and Aloud!
Read the KJV aloud- It will become a welcome gift to Your Soul and Mind--

After reading the information on the link above-- I found much information on Peter Ruckman...
and I also found it interesting that "pastors" try to degenerate congregants and call them Ruckmanites -
if they disagree w/ their "pastor's" belief that other Bible translations are above the KJV---
Since I have seen the that type of small minded "pastor" many times-in many other scenarios-
I smiled when I read about Ruckman -and esp when I read the take in the link above--and the one at wikipedia:
