Visual History of the English Bible: The Tumultuous Tale of the World’s Bestselling Book

 

by Donald L. Brake

This beautiful book documents the fascinating journey of the Bible from the pulpit to the people. Filled with more than 100 illustrations, maps, and pages from early Bibles, this book makes a great companion to the family Bible on the coffee table. Loaded with little-known facts, anecdotes, and stories, A Visual History of the English Bible, makes for a compelling and educational read.

Dozens of English translations of the Bible are available today, but Scripture was not always so easy to obtain. Donald L. Brake invites you to discover the tumultuous tale of how the Bible was transformed from medieval manuscripts read only by clergy to a bestseller widely available in contemporary languages.

 

From John Wycliffe to King Henry VIII, from the Geneva Bible and the King James Version to the American Revolution and the Civil War, Donald L. Brake brings to life the story of the Bible’s transformation into an English bestseller. Along the way you’ll meet a number of heroes of the Christian faith who dedicated themselves to preserving and publishing the Scriptures, often at risk to their own lives. You’ll also find over one hundred illustrations, helpful explanations of principles in Bible translation and biblical interpretation, and a comparison of today’s major new translations. You’ll never take your copies of the English Bible for granted again.
