KIRKUS REVIEW

The name of Dr. Frederick C. Grant, emeritus professor at the Union Theological Seminary (New York) has been long and favorably known to students of the Bible. No less than 30 titles have already been published, and each year sees at least one more addition. His most recent, Translating the Bible, prepared to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the King James version of the Holy Bible, maintains the high order of scholarship and simple expression we have come to expect from Dr. Grant. He is past-master of the fine art of seeing things entire and seeing them whole, and he shares his visions with the reader. Incorporating the very latest discovery and interpreters of old manuscripts, and aware of all the work scholars are currently doing on their interpretation, -- all is caught up into the sweep of the fascinating story of how the Bible has been made, available to all mankind. Even the advanced student will discover here rare information and insight to be found nowhere else.
