Donald L Brake, a keen collector of English translations of the Bible, scatters tales of his quest for antiquarian tomes throughout this illustrated history. The book focuses on the risk of heresy charges that surrounded the printed vernacular versions by men such as Wycliffe, Tyndale and Coverdale and, from the earliest known English Psalter in the 8th century to the plethora of Bibles available today, it celebrates the scholars whose work made the Christian scriptures accessible to the people.
