Outline ReviewEach of these 12 Pocket Canons comes with its own stunning black and white cover photo, and each has an introduction by a highly qualified writer. For example, author Charles Johnson introduces Proverbs: "Put simply, Proverbs is that richly detailed, many-splendored map. A timeless wake-up call," writes Johnson, who was raised in a Midwestern African Methodist church but later became a Buddhist. "More importantly ... it is a two-millennium-old blue-print for the staggering challenge of living a truly civilized life." Other writers in the series include Doris Lessing ("Ecclesiastes"), Fay Weldon ("Corinthians"), Kathleen Norris ("Revelation"), Thomas Cahill ("Luke"), and Louis de Bernires ("The Book of Job"). The lilting language of the authorized King James version (translated between 1603 and 1611) is one of the most eloquent English interpretations, written when language was considered high art. Because of the compelling language, the contemporary introductions, and the artsy photography, this collection actually comes off as hip. Yet it never once falters into glitz or superficiality. This is an excellent gift box collection, especially for open-minded scholars. --Gail Hudson
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 books 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 -- Louis de Bernieres on Job, Charles Johnson on Proverbs, Doris Lessing on Ecclesiastes, David Grossman on Exodus -- make the Bible come alive as a stunning work of literature and remind us of its overwhelming contemporary relevance. It is a publishing project that has ignited interest around the world and, upon its U.K. publication, The Guardian proclaimed it "brilliantly simple ... the Pocket Canons have excited both the literary and the religious worlds."
