The Bible as Literature Author:T.R. Henn The completion and publicatin of teh New English Bible, written in the English speech of today, provides for millions of readers a new view of the Bible. "The Bible," says T.R. Henn "has been burned deeply into the fabric of the life and literature of the English-speaking peoples. Its proverbs and its parables, its episodes sacred or profane, ... more »have been expounded in drama and poetry from the earliest written English." Based on the King James (Authorised) Version of the Bible, Dr. Henn looks critically at teh epic, narrative, lyric, and dramatic qualities of the Bible.
