Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Renowned scholar Alister McGrath recounts the complicated history of the King James Bible and its impact on world culture with grace and simplicity.<P>The King James Bible has enriched the English language and Western culture more than any other single work. In the Beginning explores the forces — as political as they were theological — that led to the creation of an authorized translation of the Bible, the method of translation and printing, and its central role in the development of modern English. In the Beginning illuminates the history and significance of the King James Bible in a way that is both informative and engaging.
