Pocket Canons : Books o. I have always wanted to read the books of the Old and New Testaments but have always been turned off by the presentation and organization of standard versions of the Bible.

I was astounded by the way the publishers dealt with the presentation and organization of these famous books! 1) Each book comes individually seperate as its own book!

Each little book came with an introduction by a contemporary writer, and since many of the introducers were far from reverent, the series provoked controversy. Some of the twelve writers for this first batch-comprising six books from the Old Testament and six from the New-are Christians (Kathleen Norris, for instance, on Revelation); many are not. The books are handsomely designed, with black-and-white photos.

The Jewish Tanakh (sometimes called the Hebrew Bible) contains 24 books divided into three parts: the five books of the Torah ("teaching"); the eight books of the Nevi'im ("prophets"); and the eleven books of Ketuvim ("writings"). It is composed mainly in Biblical Hebrew, and its Septuagint is the main textual source for the Christian Greek Old Testament.

Old Testament books of the Bible. These are the books written long before Jesus was born. Fun fact: Most of the famous Bible stories you’ve heard about are probably found in the book of Genesis. Genesis answers two big questions: How did God’s relationship with the world begin? and Where did the nation of Israel come from? Author: Traditionally Moses, but the stories are much older. This is where the stories of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah and the Ark, the Tower of Babel, Abraham and Isaac, Jacob’s ladder, and Joseph’s coat of many colors are recorded.

The publication of the King James version of the Bible, translated between 1603 and 1611, coincided with an extraordinary flowering of English literature and is universally acknowledged as the greatest influence on English-language literature in history. Now, world-class literary writers introduce the books of the King James Bible in a series of beautifully designed, small-format volumes. The introducers' passionate, provocative, and personal engagements with the spirituality and the language of the text -- Louis de Bernieres on Job, Charles Johnson on Proverbs, Doris Lessing on Ecclesiastes, David Grossman on Exodus -- make the Bible come alive as a stunning work of literature and remind us of its overwhelming contemporary relevance. It is a publishing project that has ignited interest around the world and, upon its U.K. publication, The Guardian proclaimed it "brilliantly simple ... the Pocket Canons have excited both the literary and the religious worlds."

  • Bolv
As one who has been reading, studying, teach, preaching, and writing about the Bible for nearly four decades, the Pocket Canon is a winning way to offer the Scriptures (and several books of the Apocrypha). You read each book in The King James Version, which has shaped Christianity (and the English language in general) more than any translation. Some of the meaning may be lost on us less literate readers, but that is a small price to pay given the majesty and magnificence of the language.

While people may be used to entire Bibles, The Pocket Canon allows you to read a books or several smaller books in one small paperback. There is no commentary and no study helps. This is good. There is a place for simply reading and pondering the text, going with the force of the arguments, stories, and reflections. No one need be bored waiting at the doctor's office or the DMV. Simply pull out one of these books and enter a world of meaning, truth, and uncommon inspiration.

Be aware that the introduction authors for the boxed set are different than the stand alone versions of the books. If you're looking to collect another bit of obscure writing by your favorite author, you may be dissapointed. Also, the boxed set does not contain the Song of Solomon which is offered as a part of the stand alone series.

I have always wanted to read the books of the Old and New Testaments but have always been turned off by the presentation and organization of standard versions of the Bible. I could never get into the stories because the writing is always so small, and the stories too broken up by paragraphs.

After many months of looking I finally found this series!

I was astounded by the way the publishers dealt with the presentation and organization of these famous books!

1) Each book comes individually seperate as its own book!

2) The text of each book flows continuously and reads like a novel! (It is divided into chapters, NOT paragraphs!)

3) Each book is the size of your hand! Thin and small enough to take around with you! (The size of the text is perfect, not small at all!)

4) The pictures on the covers of each book do not attract attention to themselves. (You'd never know someone was reading a book from the bible!)

5) It is the famous King James version un-edited!

6) The set of books come in a hard cardboard box. Perfect as a gift!

7) The price is amazing!

(Although this set does not contain every single book from the Old and New Testaments, it includes all the main ones. I believe they will be eventually completing their project with the rest of the minor books.)

Forget about all those big, bulky, hard-to-read Bibles out there and re-read the famous stories all over again as they were meant to be read, continuous and novel-like! Outstanding!

Kathleen Norris's introduction to the Book of Revelation rescues the book for contemporary readers from the comic book style of treatment now popular in so many conventional religious circles. Bravo to Norris, and to all others who are engaged in reclaiming the Bible from fundamentalists. This will make it possible for many new readers of the Bible to continue valuing it when the current prophecy craze loses its allure. [email protected]

the notion of breaking the bible back into books (and tiny ones at that) is refereshing. while typographically nothing to marvel at, they are much easier to lug around than moser's beautiful but daunting pennyworth-caxton edition. the introductory notes give the texts spiritual and historical context without spoiling the majesty of what follows.
  • Joony
I love the idea of having pocket-sized volumes of books of the Bible. But the quality of the paper in this collection makes it not worth having. Only a slightly higher grade of paper than newspaper. Not worth the trouble.
