9780199535941: The Bible: Authorized King James Version (Oxford World's Classics)

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.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Review:


"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


"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


"Superbly readable notes by its editors."--Boyd Tonkin, The Independent


"This is an edition which every booklover deserves to have."--Scotland on Sunday
