The King James Bible of 1611 has been one of the richest sources for English language and literature for nearly four centuries and is itself a work of the greatest poetic beauty. This beautifully designed edition is for the general reader, uncluttered by footnotes and set in full pages rather than the usual narrow columns. George Steiner's introduction illuminates the Bible's profound effect on the history of English literature and includes a moving personal reading of the greatest of texts. It also places the Bible within the history and development of Judaeo-Christian thought.
