- White, James R. The King James Only Controversy: Can You Trust the Modern Translations? Minneapolis: Bethany House Publishers, 1995.
- Moynahan, Brian. God's Bestseller: William Tyndale, Thomas More, and the Writing of the English Bible - A Story of Martyrdom and Betrayal. New York: St. Martin's Press, 2002.
Moynahan is a former history scholar at Cambridge and his book lays the historical foundation that leads to the KJV. I'm thinking that this might be the book to read first (once I finish the other tome I'm reading by former President Bush.)
The KJV remains as an historical landmark in literature, and regardless of subsequent developments in biblical studies and translations the beauty and art of its language cannot be surpassed.
