"Bloom moves adroitly between the KJV and the earlier translations of Tyndale and Coverdale. Readers also benefit from illuminating comparisons with the Geneva Bible (which the KJV supplanted), with the Tanakh (or Hebrew Bible), and with the Greek New Testament, so acquiring a deep appreciation for the KJV's compelling narrative,"---Booklist. 256 pages, softcover.
