About The Book
“Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” --Joshua 1:8
The editors of Canterbury Classics have chosen to print the King James version of the The Holy Bible, which contains both the Old and New Testaments. The Holy Bible was first copied by scribes and, because of its length and the time it took to hand write each book, only the elite had a copy. It wasn’t until the 1440s when Johannes Gutenberg invented his revolutionary printing press that the first printing of the Bible made copies available to the lower class. Only forty-eight copies of Gutenberg’s original Latin print run exist, and they are considered to be the most valuable books in the world.
* The Holy Bible is the world’s best-selling book, to date.
The Holy Bible is a divinely inspired book that transcends time.
