The Bible in Transmission (Spring 2010) – Shaping a Nation: The Influence of the Bible on British Culture

The latest issue of The Bible in Transmission, published by the Bible Society, is now online here, sporting a handsome new design.

This one takes its cue from the forthcoming 400th anniversary – in 2011 – of the publication of the King James Version of the Bible, and explores how the Bible has shaped, and continues to shape, the cultural landscape in Britain.
