The literary influence of the Bible has been tremendous, all pervasive and perennial.

It has gifted ample vocabulary, most beautiful quotations, maxims and phrases.

        The impact of the King James Bible, which was published years ago, is still being felt on the way we speak and write, says Stephen Tomkins. She investigates the dissemination of these terms in early modern society and culture, focusing on community ties, gender and labour relations, and offices of state. The result is an important contribution to the history of the English Bible, biblical translations, and to early modern English .
