Overview

The Bible is the most important book in the history of Western civilization, and also the most difficult to interpret.

"This is the best text for reading that is linked to prayer, both from its associations and from its lovely language ... it is happy that at Easter 1997 there should be a new printing of the greatest of English religious texts."—Owen Chadwick, The Observer

    Like this bible

    Authorized King James with Apocrypha, inexpensive, notes excellent. Really a bargain. You don't have to be religious to enjoy the King James maybe the best written book in English history certainly with the greatest impact on English and American literature. Its also nice to have the king james translation of the Apocrypha. Good carrying size, highly recommend.
