A new hardback edition of the ultimate literary and religious classic, presented in series with the Complete Works of Shakespeare.
A runaway bestseller since it was first published in 1611, the Authorized King James Version Bible remains tremendously popular today for its spiritual value and literary quality alike. It is a vitally important text for anyone wanting to understand western culture, given its influence on the English literature of the past few hundred years, as well as the course of history over that time.
In this edition the conventional verse-by-verse layout is followed, in a clear and readable font with aids to pronunciation of proper names, making it accessible within the traditional format.
