Synopsis

The Bible : Authorized King James Version by

This edition offers one of the most influential of all English biblical texts - the Authorized King James Version, complete with the Apocrypha. Its introduction and the substantial notes to each book of the Bible guide the reader through the labyrinth of literary, textual and theological issues.


Reviews

The World's Classics Bible [is] a quite extraordinary success. It is learned but entirely accessible, full of fascinating information ... and executed with great skill and enthusiasm Frank Kermode [The editors] seem to have read everything ... and their commentary consistently illuminates everything it touches upon, from the meaning of single words to the largest issues ... A magnificent achievement Gabriel Josipovici
