King James Bible

Rich Lowry has an interesting column on the King James Bible.  He mentions two books on the subject to which I would add a third, Adam Nicolson's God's Secretaries.  

I'm told, by someone who would know, that more modern translations are not only easier to understand but more accurate, however my sense is that the loss in "majestic lift" has been considerable.
