The King James BibleIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
Amongst the minor flood of books that have been published to mark the four hundredth anniversary of the King James Bible, few, as is the nature of things, will prove to be of lasting value. This is one that will last.
Although the author has the annoying and contentious habit of describing translations that pre-date the KJB as drafts of that text, nevertheless his detailed analysis of select passages show the reader how the translation arrived at its 1611 form. This goes much further than some more general surveys that do give the historical context, but leave the reader deprived of the ‘mechanics’ of translation. Norton’s book supplies the want.
