A Reader's Guide to the King James Bible

By James W. Knox


$12.95


James Knox holds earned degrees in English and Journalism and has used this background, along with his extensive library to put together a virtual text book on the language of the King James Version. By Definition takes on the most difficult words in the English Bible and sets forth their origin, meaning and usage in a clear and concise manner. Using humor and common sense the reader is guided into an understanding of the English language and thereby enabled to better enjoy the Holy Bible.

In addition to the interesting word studies, there are fifteen appendices covering such subjects as thees and thous, grammar and spelling, words in italics, est and eth endings, etc. These clear lessons will help readers of all skill levels comprehend and enjoy their Bible as never before.

Detailed enough for the advanced student, yet, plain enough for the most casual reader, By Definition will be one of the most oft-used resources in any library. (359 pages).
