Celebrating 400 years of the King James Bible

I've mentioned before that Ashland Theological Seminary will be hosting a series of events celebrating the King James Bible. We will also have a museum with over 40 different items on display. We will be exhibiting such items as a fragment of the Dead
Sea Scrolls (200 BCE), Greek Exodus fragments (300 CE), a Torah Scroll (1492) and a number of Bibles some over 500 years old.

One of the local newspapers has run an article on the event. Strange that they would do so on Christmas day since I can't imagine that is one of the days that newspapers figure high on most people's agenda. But in any case, here is a piece from the Mansfield News Journal.
