400th Anniversary of the King James Bible

A website celebrating the 400th anniversary of the King James Version Bible is now online. The anniversary of the KJV Bible is May 2nd.  The site includes information about the background and development of the translation, links to various resources, and a clock counting down to the anniversary.

What is your favorite translation of the Holy Bible?  Take our blog poll in the left column of this site.  My preference is the New King James Version (NKJV), and I usually read from it when preaching, but I also use the KJV.

I like the New Jerusalem Bible because it retains a lot of the "literary" feel of the King James Bible, and it also contains additional information on the historical context of the material and some books that I never recall seeing in the King James version that was used in church when I was growing up. But some verses that we all memorized as children will never sound as familiar and comfortable in any of the more modern translations as they do in the King James version.
