Uniquely presented, this history of the Bible draws together story and scholarship with lively accounts of the people, powers and incidents involved in bringing the Bible, in the language of the people, to the English. Informative, thought-provoking and very readable, this is a book that will help you discover the story behind the world's bestseller. It tells how the Bible was created, how it became a bestselling book and the effects it had on those who encountered it. Through a discussion of democracy and literacy, learning and communication this book shows how the Bible is, above all, about freedom and why Ghandi described God's book as 'containing enough dynamite to blow all civilisation to pieces.'
