The Translators Revived by Alexander McClure

What were the personal qualifications of the King James’ Translators of the Bible? Alexander McClure researched for more than 20 years to gather information on all 47 of the men under the King’s Commission. McClure writes of the results of his quest, “the Translators commissioned by James Stuart were ripe and critical scholars, profoundly versed in all the learning required; and that, in these particulars, there has never yet been a time when a better qualified company could have been collected for the purpose.”
