Kings Book

is the name of a book published A.D. 1543, under the sanction of Henry VIII, entitled A necessary Doctrine and Erudition for any Christian Man.

The people called it the King's Book in contradistinction from the work which furnished the basis for the King's Book, and was called the Bishops' Book. This latter was an exposition of the Apostles' Creed, the Seven Sacraments, the Ten Commandments, the Pater Noster, and the Ave Maria: to these, in the King's Book, was subjoined additional matter touching free will, good works, justification, predestination, and purgatory. A comparison, however, of the two shows that in the King's Book there is a falling away from the principles of the Reformation. (See INSTITUTION OF A CHRISTIAN MAN).
