Fires of Faith is a two-hour documentary narrated by London stage actor, Geoffrey Palmer, that explores the events leading up to the publication of the King James Bible. Over 50 translators worked for seven years to complete the 1611 version of the King James Bible. This great effort, instituted by King James I, brought about a bible that became the standard for the world. Fires of Faith will further explore the effect that the bible has had on the English language and on the course of America; its society, its culture and its religions. Fires of Faith was filmed on location in Belgium, Germany, England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Israel and the United States.
