"I thoroughly enjoyed reading The King James Men. I will never look at the King James' Version of the Bible in the same way again." - Readers' Favorite
Separatist Ben Kemp has already suffered for his faith: three years in prison, and seven more in exile. But when a new king ascends the throne, he decides it is time to come home. Seeking only to be left in peace to worship with a true church, he joins a small community who have so far escaped persecution.
Then his old friend, biblical scholar Richard Clarke, is offered a place on the king's translation of the bible. For Richard it seems like a gift from God, a way back in from the cold where his friendship with Ben has kept him for many years.
But Richard soon discovers there is a price to pay for his new-found favour, and that price is betrayal. Caught between love for his friend and faith in his church, Richard is faced with a devastating choice.
Set against the translation of the King James Bible, and inspired by true accounts of the people who became the Mayflower Pilgrims, The King James Men is a vivid and moving portrayal of the religious struggles of the age, and the price of being true to your faith.
