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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
beautiful little book, who cares about nick cave!  Jan 28, 2003
Beautiful little series of books which I was coveting (mea culpa) long before I bought them. It seems awfully unfair for the people below to give the book such a low rating becase 'nick cave' didn't introduce the chapter. Who cares?

I enjoyed the format, design and lush language of the book.

Best and Most Cryptic Gospel w/ great intro  Aug 29, 2000
I gather from the other extremely negative reviews that the British edition of this book has an introduction written by Nick Cave. While I'm sure Nick Cave's commentary on Mark is wonderful, so is the introduction by Barry Hannah in the American edition. Barry Hannah, a hilarious and rough-cut Southern novelist whose ability to craft a startling sentence is nearly unsurpassed, is drawn to Mark for reasons likely similar to those that drew Cave (or to those that led Borges to write an astounding story called "The Gospel According to St. Mark"): Mark is the strangest, least comforting of the Gospels, forging a dim and demanding Christianity out of the disquieting words and acts of Jesus with a minimum of explanation. God seems distant and truly ungraspable here; Mark is a million miles from the cloying certitude of the Pauline epistles, or from, say, the more prosaic Matthew. Hannah, a self-described "bad Christian" (again, not so different from Nick Cave, at least by my lights), manages to bring these qualities out beautifully in his introduction. (Hannah also makes "bad Christian" seem like probably the best thing anyone can hope to be.) By all means, get the British edition with Cave's introduction (as I now plan to do), but don't let that keep you from reading Barry Hannah's introduction too.
Buy the British version !  Feb 20, 2000
For reasons of political and religious correctness the Americans have issued their own versions of these pocket books. The British ones are much better.
If you think this little book has something to do with Nick Cave you are wrong. If you want the edition that has Nick's foreword, you have to get the U.K. edition by Canongate. this has this book linked incorrectly!
