The Bible is the most important book in the history of Western
civilization, and also the most difficult to interpret. It has been the
vehicle of continual conflict, with every interpretation reflecting
passionately-held views that have affected not merely religion, but
politics, art, and even science.
This unique edition offers
an exciting new approach to the most influential of all English biblical
texts - the Authorized King James Version, complete with the Apocrypha.
Its wide-ranging Introduction and the substantial notes to each book of
the Bible guide the reader through the labyrinth of literary, textual,
and theological issues, using the most up-to-date scholarship to
demonstrate how and why the Bible has affected the literature, art and
general culture of the English-speaking world.
