Description
Lavishly illustrated with reproductions from early editions of the King James Bible, this is a vivid and detailed history of the Bible's most renowned English translation. Gordon Campbell, a scholar of Renaissance literature, does not end the tale with the creation of that first edition, however; he also traces the textual history since 1611, illuminating how subsequent generations have edited and interacted with the text for 400 years, and the controversies surrounding their revisions.

"As a resource detailing all aspects of the development and production of the KJV, this is a fine book. Readers will appreciate the discussion of original illustrations (some are reproduced here) and the recital of hilarious typos that plagued early editions."Publishers Weekly

"Since the King James Bible is a product of the Renaissance era, it is appropriate that its biographer is a professor of Renaissance studies (Leicester University). Even so, Campbell never seems out of his element when covering the KJV in its later historical stages. He devotes a chapter apiece to each century since the Bible's first edition and also includes a chapter on the unique aspect of the KJV's reception in America. The final third of the book highlights all of the KJV's significant revisions (e.g., NKJV) and editions (e.g., Scofield). Throughout, there is enough detail to please serious researchers but not too much to turn off those simply wanting a 'good read'."Booklist
