version was in use by Anglican speaking protestants for nearly three hundred years

God is our Refuge and Strength

It took many years for the 1611 Version to overtake the Geneva Bible in popularity with the people, but eventually the King James Version became the Bible of the English people. It became the most printed book in the history of the world. In fact, for around 250 years...until the appearance of the Revised Version of 1881...the King James Version reigned without a rival. During all that time, the authorized version contained the original 80 books (with Apocrypha) of the 1611 version. The Aitken Bible by American Robert Aitken  (a `King James Bible` but calvinised, americanised) appeared in 1782, but was not recognized as Authorized (so short after Yorktown!!). The Apocrypha was officially removed by the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1885 leaving only 66 books.

DISCLAIMER : Although the writings known as the Apocrypha are often not included in Protestant Bibles, due to the fact that these ancient texts came to us in Greek (like the New Testament) and later Latin but not in Scriptural Hebrew. Their rank in terms of authority is thus deuterocanonical, or second level. The fact is, while Anglo-American fundamentalists today reject their canonicity, they were translated and included in the original King James Bible of 1611, and are sometimes overviewed in Bible College or Seminary classes for historical background value. Having said this, we offer them here in faithfulness to the 1611 original.
