The People's Bible

Full Product Description

  • Ever wonder how the King James Bible came to be?
  • This fascinating history is unearthed as Derek Wilson looks at the life of William Tyndale
  • The story of the first English language Bible will change how you see the Bible forever
This is the story of one of the most influential, provocative, ambitious projects of its day: translating the Bible into English, the language of the people. In 1604 the new King James I convened a meeting at Hampton Court to address the problem of the Puritans. The recommendation was for the authorization of a new translation of the Bible, one that would be accessible to the common people and placed in every Church in his realm. Within three years a team of 47 scholars on six committees had begun work in Oxford, Cambridge and Westminster. The fruit of their labours was the Authorized Version published in 1611. Beautifully presented and based on scholarly research, this book traces the fascinating history of the AV from its earliest predecessors through its remarkable influence on the church, literature, and wider society.

The People's Bible by Derek Wilson was published by Lion Hudson in September 2011 and is our 379th best seller. The ISBN for The People's Bible is 9780745955599.
