In the Beginning: The Story of the King James Bible

Full Product Description

Alister McGrath wants to tell you about the fascinating story of the King James Bible and how it changed a nation, a language, and a culture.

There are many layers to the story of how the King James Bible came to be written...who better than Christian theologian Alister McGrath to provide you with a comprehensive guide to the epic story?

McGrath superbly lays foundations for the reader to develop a full understanding of the King James Bible. The story begins in the 15th Century with the origin of printing. You will then learn of political and technical problems that surrounded different versions of the Bible and how the King James Bible dealt with these issues.

The King James Bible's influence is arguably the most fascinating element of the story. For example, McGrath argues that without it, great literary works such as Paradise Lost and Pilgrim's Progress would not exist.

"In the Beginning: The Story of the King James Bible" will explore how the translation has exerted a long lasting religious, social, economic and political influence.
