Donald L. Brake brings to life the history of the longest-running English translation of the Holy Bible—rich with photos, maps, charts, and paintings that illustrate the plight of the most influential book in the English language.
From the Old English period to King James I to William Shakespeare and the arrival of the Puritans in the New World, Brake brings the reader on a journey through time exploring the challenges, controversies, and legacies brought about by the attempts to bring this book into an accurate, unbiased English translation. Discover the origins of the "Wicked Bible" of 1631 (famed for its typo, "Thou shalt commit adultery"), see the dangers of distributing the Bible during the American Civil War, and meet the scholars—and commoners—involved in its translation along the way. Regardless of what version of the Bible you hold closest to your heart, this eye-catching eBook is a must-have for anyone interested in the history of the Bible.
