A background of the English Bible as Literature (revised and condensed from the author's acclaimed background of the Bible as Literature CUP, 1993) explores years of spiritual and literary rules. At its center is the tale of the way the King James Bible went from being mocked as English writing to being "unsurpassed within the complete variety of literature." It reports the Bible translators, writers comparable to Milton and Bunyan who contributed loads to our experience of the Bible, and a desirable variety of critics and commentators.
