The King James Bible -

Wow, great movie. First the DVD version I watched is about 90 minutes. (The IMDb shows a 59 min. documentary.) Although a narrator documents the story along with comments from so-called academic experts, paid actors and Hollywood-like stage sets really add movie like drama to this historic story. Very well done - seemingly missing movie making exaggerations of those "based on true stories."

This movie definitely inspires me to look into the historic period and maybe even visit Scotland. I've lived in England for years and the more I learn the more I reject this entire King Queen realm of so-called superior individuals and race. Of course much of this is based on the Bible idea of being "chosen" which King James aptly mentions in the film. This ideas of chosen rulers where Church and State are "one" likely stems back to Theocracy in ancient Egypt. If Gandhi-like rulers truly serve where the neighbor is the self (i.e. love your neighbors as the self) and priorities focus on God's light, then the reality of theocracy can potentially work.

Continuing with the movie, I like how the "Let there be Light" reading of the King James Bible occurred. Then it was interesting to see that King James is pretty much ignored with the burial tombs in Westminster Abbey. - There is only a simple black stone marking King James tomb.- Maybe this goes to show the priorities of the British.

Until studying up and taking the time to verify some of the factual details, great inspiring movie on this subject.

PS I would say the Bible - as the most read book in the world - changed the world along with the Gutenberg Press. The Kings James Version greatly impacts the English speaking Christians, but it must be remembered the Protestant Revolution starts with Martin Luther in Germany and the Bible translation into German.
