'Lord of the Rings' Actor Shares Personal Impact of KJV Bible

He rode with Indiana Jones and battled next to Frodo, now award-winning actor John Rhys-Davies rides along the corridors of history teaching us what the King James Version Bible battled before reaching the homes of millions of people today.

Rhys-Davies, who plays the dwarf Gimli in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, explained to The Christian Post his personal appreciation and relationship with the KJV Bible after working on the docudrama, “KJB: The Book that Changed the World.”

While working as the host for the film, now available on DVD, Rhys-Davies became aware of many unanswered questions in his life, such as “What do I really believe? What are my real core values and understanding?”

He confessed “for me, it has been a very personal journey, which I have to tell you is not yet completed spiritually.”

Historical Note: The Church of England and the Puritans were NOT seperate denominations. Puritanism was a movement WITHIN the reformed Church of England and historic Anglicanism. While a number of Puritan ministers were ejected from the Church of England for non-conformity at the Restoration and established non-conformist "conventicles," a number of Puritan ministers accepted the new Prayer Book and retained their livings.

I have seen the KJV The Book that Changed the World. It is a good documentary with drama. The major fault I found with it is that it did not give credit to the works that John Wycliffe, Tynsdale, Coverdale and others did in translation. Though the committees went over the translations with a fine tooth comb never-the-less the translation was in fact a process of several centuries of which the Authorized Version was culmination.
