Book description
In 1611, the King James Bible was published - and it became the most familiar and widely read book in the world; a religious and literary classic. But how did this 'noblest monument of English prose', in Robert Lowth's words, come to be? For centuries, English Bibles were burned and translators executed. Guiding us through the forces that shaped King James' masterpiece, Derek Wilson explores the immense tranformation of religion and society that led to its making, and celebrates the breadth of its unparalleled influence.
