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.
The Bible: Authorized King James Version also includes the latest biblical research, evaluated and put into context as well as discussing centuries of critical opinion. A non-sectarian, historical approach makes it suitable for a wide range of readers. A Glossary of terms used in the Notes and six maps of the Holy Land further illuminate the meaning of this most culturally influential version of the Bible.

Bible: King James Version (KJV) with Apocrypha 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This edition of the KJV is intended for use as a textbook in English Lit classes. As a devotional Bible, it leaves a lot to be desired. It has chaplers and verses but no references or notes in the text itself. The extensive introductory essay, while well worth reading, begs for a commentary itself! Scholarly introductions to each book are appendices. They should be placed at the beginning of each book. Since it is printed in an ordinary trade paperback size, it is very bulky and won't stand up to a lot of handling. My own copy is a few years old by now but is still intact. I would buy another one if the publishers would supply it in leather binding, with center column references, thumb indices, and some text notes. Other than this edition, it is difficult to buy a KJV with Apocrypha at a reasonable price.
