Thomas Nelson releases King James Sovereign Collection Bible

Nashville, Ten. (Feb. 2021) – Thomas Nelson Bibles, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, is pleased to announce the release of the King James Sovereign Collection Bible. The Sovereign Collection continues Thomas Nelson’s long history and stewardship publishing Bibles.

King James Sovereign Collection editions draw from the legacy of the trustworthy and timeless KJV with elegant drop cap illustrations leading into each chapter, the exclusive Comfort Print typeface inspired by centuries-old Thomas Nelson editions, and more classic Bible details.

In 1611, the King James Version Bible, also known as the Authorized Version, was published. Nearly 50 of the day’s finest scholars, all from the Church of England, had been organized into six groups for the task. Using the Bishop’s Bible of 1568 as the basis for this revision, the Old Testament was translated from Hebrew and the New Testament from Greek. The completed work was then peer-reviewed before being sent to bishops and other church leaders for their examination, and ultimately to King James, monarch of England and Scotland, for his approval.

Today, more than 400 years since its initial publication, the bestselling King James Version Bible continues to inspire, encourage, and strengthen people from all walks of life. The KJV is considered one of the most influential and beautiful works of literature in the English language and continues to be the favorite translation for millions of Christians.
