Bible basics

16th February 1996 at 00:00
The Authorised (or "King James") Version of the Bible can seem daunting and inaccessible to many readers with its unfamiliar genres and language and sometimes unacceptable religious approach to the text. King James's Bible: A Selection, edited by W H Stevenson, is aimed at students and lecturers of literature who wish to understand and appreciate the text and its 16th-century background. The passages - both famous and less familiar - have been chosen to illustrate the AV's pervasive imagery and range of literary forms and styles. Longman Pounds 50 cased, Pounds 21 paperback.
