In the Beginning, James.

Orphaned, bullied, lonely, and unloved as a boy, in time the young King of Scots overcame his troubled beginnings to ascend the English throne at the height of England's Golden Age. In an effort to pacify rising tensions in the Anglican Church, and to reflect the majesty of his new reign, he spearheaded the most important literary undertaking in Western history--the translation of the Bible into a beautiful, lyrical, and accessible English.

David Teems's narrative crackles with wit, using a thoroughly modern tongue to reanimate the life of this seventeenth century king--a man at the intersection of political, literary, and religious thought, yet a man of contrasts, dubbed by one French king as "the wisest fool in Christendom."

Warm, insightful, even at times amusing, Teems's depiction of King James has all the elements of a grand tale--conspiracy, kidnapping, witchcraft, murder, love, despair, loss. "Majestie" offers an engaging new look at the world's most cherished, revered, and influential translation of Sacred Writ and the king behind it.

"Engrossing and entertaining...a delightful read in every way." - "Publishers Weekly"
