207 - The Forgotten Preface

For many Christians, the King James Version of the Bible is only acceptable translation for English speaking people. But, is that what the translators themselves thought or even wanted others to think? Taken out of many modern KJV Bibles is the original preface written by those very translators. Thankfully Joshua Barzon has taken the time to share this preface with us and explore the thoughts and the intents of what was then a new controversial translation. In his just-released book, the Forgotten Preface, Joshua shares with us a forgotten piece of the puzzle many did not know even existed. He joins us this week on a podcast you won't want to miss!
