The celebration of the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible will continue in December.
Starting Dec. 11, BYUtv will re-air the first of a three-part documentary called "Fires of Faith: The Coming Forth of the King James Bible." The second episode will air on Dec. 18 and the third on Dec. 25.
The documentary focuses on William Tyndale and his fellow martyrs who played a role in bringing forth the King James Bible, which has had a major impact on religion, language, culture, art and literature.
To produce the documentary, BYUtv flimed more than 130 re-enactments in eight different countries at many of the actual sites where original events took place. Eighteen international scholars and religious leaders were interviewed.
To see a trailer of the documentary, visit BYUtv.org.
