The King James Bible or Authorized Version (1611) comprises the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Apocrypha, from God's
creation of the heaven and earth, and the fall of man in Genesis, through the life of Jesus Christ, to St John the Divine's foretelling of the end of the world and God's final judgement in Revelation. Among the mort influential texts of all time and the cornerstone of English-speaking Christianity and culture, the King James Bible is the work of the great scholars and theologians of the early seventeenth century. They revised and retranslated existing versions, including that of William Tyndale, to create the Bible known by all speakers and readers of English. Definitive and highly readable, this superb edition of the complete King
James Bible is new to Penguin Classics. Presenting the text as published in The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible, it is truer to the translators'
work than any other edition, and has consistent modern spelling, punctuation and presentation that allow this classic of classics to come alive for readers today. It also contains a new introduction by David Norton, maps and notes.
