THE HOLY BIBLE - KNOX TRANSLATION
Monsignor Ronald Knox was commissioned in 1939 by the Bishops of England and Wales to produce a fresh translation of the Holy Scriptures and, for the next nine years, he worked alone to achieve this task. Using Pope Clement VIII's edition of the Latin Vulgate as a base for his translation, he diligently compared it to Greek, Hebrew, Syriac and Chaldean manuscripts to determine the meaning of ambiguous passages. His translation is spiritual and literary, graceful and lyrical, making it one of the most beautiful English translations of the Holy Bible. Black leather hardcover (6" x 8 1/4"). 1,472 pages.
