"Nicolson makes that faraway world fresh for today's readers.  And he makes the King James Bible seem all the more remarkable for being the product of a divided age, when grudging cooperation led to a masterpiece of faith and prose." -- Wall Street Journal   "This book is studded with intriguing information and answers to scholarly questions . . ." -- New York Times   "An astonishingly rich cultural tour of the art, architecture, personalities, and experiences of Jacobean England: high and low entertainment, high and low churchmanship, courtiers, schoolmasters, and ecclesiastics.  Nicolson's picture is beguilingly full."  -- Times Literary Supplement    This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.
