The Literary Impact of the Authorized Version by C.S. Lewis

The Athlone Press, 1950, First Edition

Lewis argued at the 1950 Ethel M. Wood Lecture before the University of London to consider that the King James Version a translation of the Bible, has served more than a source, but as a literary influence on English Literature.

Inscribed in ink by C.S. Lewis on the top right corner: “Charles Wrong from C.S.L.” Charles Wrong was a student of C.S. Lewis at Oxford University graduating in 1938.
