NIV Origin

It’s excessively, almost unbearably sad to me that the story told in this video goes back 60 years. If a businessman in a hotel in the 1950s laughed out loud at the archaism of the KJV, what does it sound like to people today?

    What’s sad is that a lot of hotels (of those that still carry Bibles) still have the KJV in their drawers.
