Item Description...
The publication of the King James version of the Bible, translated between 1603 and 1611, coincided with an extraordinary flowering of English literature and is universally acknowledged as the greatest influence on English-language literature in history. Now, world-class literary writers introduce the book of the King James Bible in a series of beautifully designed, small-format volumes. The introducers' passionate, provocative, and personal engagements with the spirituality and the language of the text make the Bible come alive as a stunning work of literature and remind us of its overwhelming contemporary relevance.

More About Thomas Cahill

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! THOMAS CAHILL is the author of the best-selling books, How the Irish Saved Civilization: The Untold Story of Ireland 's Heroic Role from the Fall of Rome to the Rise of Medieval Europe, The Gifts of the Jews: How a Tribe of Desert Nomads Changed the Way Everyone Thinks and Feels, and Desire of the Everlasting Hills: The World Before and After Jesus.These books comprise the first three volumes of a prospective seven-volume series entitled "The Hinges of History," in which Cahill recounts formative moments in Western civilization. In "The Hinges of History," Thomas Cahill endeavors to retell the story of the Western World through little-known stories of the great gift-givers, people who contributed immensely to Western, culture and the evolution of Western sensibility, thus revealing how we have become the people we are and why we think and feel the way we do today.
Thomas Cahill is best known, in his books and lectures, for taking on a broad scope of complex history and distilling it into accessible, instructive, and entertaining narrative. His lively, engaging writing animates cultures that existed up to five millennia ago, revealing the lives of his principal characters with refreshing insight and joy. He writes history, not in its usual terms of war and catastrophe, but as "narratives of grace, the recountings of those blessed and inexplicable moments when someone did something for someone else, saved a life, bestowed a gift, gave something beyond what was required by circumstance." Unlike all too many history lessons, a Thomas Cahill history book or speech is impossible to forget.
He has taught at Queens College, Fordham University and Seton Hall University, served as the North American education correspondent for the Times of London, and was for many years a regular contributor to the Los Angeles Times Book Review. Prior to retiring recently to write full-time, he was director of religious publishing at Doubleday for six years. He and his wife, Susan, also an author, founded the now legendary Cahill & Company Catalogue, much beloved by readers. They divide their time between New York and Rome.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Gospel as Literature  Mar 9, 2004
The King James version of the Bible is not the most scholarly or painstakingly accurate translation. It remains, however, the most literary and perhaps the most influential version. For people of a certain age, like me, this is the version we heard as children. Biblical thinking is that the gospels were written serperately and at different times for different audiences. It can be instructive to read them seperately. If Luke was the only or the primary text, the early church members who read it would have had a wonderful set of stories from an author (probably not Jewish) writing comfortably in his primary language. They would have had a great nativity narrative, parables including the Good Samaritan, Martha and Mary, the Prodigal Son and the Good Thief. Early church members who did not have Luke available would have missed all that. In Luke, the Sermon on the Mount was given in the valley and blessing for the poor and afflicted alternate with woes predicted for the rich and satisfied. Luke writes about Jesus's message and mercy for all people and social judgement like forgiving debts and freeing prisoners. Whatever else you think about the writer of Luke, he can certainly tell a story.
