Tom Henn's classic work represents an important and illuminating reading for the student of English literature and religion, the general reader of the Bible and the Bible lover. Based on the King James (Authorised) version of the Bible, Dr Henn looks critically at the epic, narrative, lyric and dramatic qualities of the Bible. He examines the Bible's unique "forge of style" and the "imagery" which so profoundly give the Bible its Biblical character. The Bible's immense variety, its capacity to speak to the heart and mind of the reader, its powerful readability and above all its sense of the eternal, are all brought into Henn's masterly work.
