If you've the time, you might enjoy reading God's Secretaries: The Making of the King James Bible. I can't recall the author, but I'm solid on the title. I found it a fascinating red.

Thanks Adelle. I won't have the time for a while but I'd like to read some things to help me better understand. I'm getting a late start considering it could take a lifetime to understand fully!
I'm taking a course this summer that compares the old, and new testaments with the quran. So much to read in so little time but I'm so glad I signed up. I realized that I've never sat down and read the bible before! Just Genesis, Matthew and Job. I know so much of it just through osmosis but it's different to sit down and really read and think about it.
I accidentally listed the wrong edition. the one I'm reading is the New Oxford Annotated and it's really wonderful. The translation is accessible and there are many helpful footnotes, commentaries and best of all, maps. I'm also downloading it onto my ipod so i can listen to it while I bike. How did I ever reach
the age of 60 without having read this????
Good to hear from you.

I'm trying to make up for lost time!

Oh! I'm going to be listening to the King James version, does that count as "reading"?

(Takes different skills, though, doesn't it? I find it so much easier to lose my concentration when I'm "reading"/audio.)

Yes, you have to process at the speed of the reader.
But then there's always re-wind!
