"Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand." Rev: 1-3

The books of the Bible were written at different times by different authors over a period of approximately 1,500 years from around 1400BC through 90AD. The Old Testament was written in Biblical Hebrew with the exception of the Books written during 'the Chaldean captivity' such as Daniel and Ezra which were written in 'Biblical Aramaic' during the 'Chaldean captivity'. Many of the Books of the Old Testament bear the names of the Prophets who authored them. Moses compiled the earlier parts of Genesis and directly authored the remaining portion. David wrote much of Psalms while Solomon wrote the books of The Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes. The Books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel bear the names of the Prophets who wrote them. The Old Testament Books of the minor prophets bear the author's name as well. The four New Testament Gospels were pinned by Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. The Apostle Paul pinned authorship to 13 of the 27 Books of the New Testament. The authorship of the remaining 10 Books of the New Testament belong to the disciples of Jesus Christ.

The Hebrew Bible was then translated into Greek and finally into English. John Wycliffe first translated the entire Bible (both Old and New Testaments) into English in 13th century England. William Tyndale translated the Bible into English in 15 century England. The King James translators used the Tyndale and Wycliffe translations in the Publishing of the King James Bible in 1611, commonly referred to as "The Holy Bible".

Alexander Scourby was the first to record the King James Bible on audio in the early 1950s. Since then millions have been sold the World over. Although many have recorded the Bible over the years, no one could ever match Scourby's unparalleled and majestic reading. The combination of Alexander Scourby reading the King James Bible is an incomparable hearing experience.

The Chicago Tribune wrote that "Alexander Scourby has the greatest voice ever recorded."

About the Author

William Tyndale was an English scholar who became a leading figure in the Protestant Reformation in the years leading up to his execution in 1536. He is well known for his translation of the Bible into English. You can view a video about his effort to translate the Bible that led to his death. William ?Tyndale could speak seven languages and was proficient in ancient Hebrew and Greek. He was a priest whose intellectual gifts and disciplined life could have taken him a long way in the church—had he not had one compulsion: to translate a Bible for the common people. Tyndale once made this statement that roused the anger the Roman Church, "If God spares my life, I will cause the boy that drives the plow to know more of Bible than the Pope" See Video documentary about William Tyndale here:

We would also like to pay special?? honor to John Wycliffe, who was an English scholastic philosopher, theologian, Biblical translator, and professor at the University of Oxford, during the 14th century and considered an important predecessor to Protestantism. John Wycliffe had come to regard the scriptures as the only reliable guide to the truth about God, and maintained that all Christians should rely on the Bible rather than on the teachings of popes and clerics.

One last special mention to Ben Joyner who put all the text and Bible Audio narrated by Alexander Scourby together for the publication of the eBooks and Audio Bibles. Ben has worked with Litchfield Associates for the last ten years years re-mastering the entire King James Audio Bible narrated by Alexander Scourby in 1959 and 1974; and we want to give special recognition to his efforts in continually improve the audio quality of Scourby Bible narration. The Chicago Tribune said that Alexander Scourby has the greatest voice ever recorded. You can read the complete article here: https://www.scourby.com/chicago-tribune-article/
