This magnificent edition of the King James Bible features nearly 100 of the world’s greatest paintings of scenes from the Bible, all of them housed in the National Gallery, London.
For centuries, people of all religious persuasions have appreciated the King James Bible for the power, dignity and sheer lyrical beauty of its poetry and prose. Together, the words and paintings displayed so beautifully and interestingly in this edition convey a profound sense of the sacred. They also provide a unique link across cultures and between generations. Both the words and paintings may date back many hundreds of years. And yet they still have an extraordinary power to move and inspire us today.
