Overview

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.

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.
