The Bible (Paperback)

David Norton

-  

"The King James Bible" or "Authorized Version" (1611) comprises the Old Testament, the "Apocrypha" and the New Testament, from God's creation of the heaven and earth and the fall of man in Genesis, through the life of Jesus Christ, to St John the Divine's foretelling of the end of the world and God's final judgment in Revelation. Among the most influential texts of all time and the cornerstone of the Christian faith, the "King James Bible" is the work of the great scholars and theologians of the early seventeenth century and reflects their desire for greater stability in the Christian religion. They revised and retranslated existing versions, including that of William Tyndale, to create a standardized Bible that would be accessible to all speakers and readers of English. Definitive and highly readable, this superb edition brings new vigour to one of the finest pieces of English prose.
