The King James Bible and the English Language

To mark the 400th anniversary of the 1611 King James Bible, David Crystal‘s book, Begat, examines the way English has been shaped by the language of the Bible.

‘No book has had greater influence on the English language’, wrote one commentator. True or false? The surprising answer is: both.

David is to give a talk in the Lady Chapel of Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford on Sunday, 31st July at 7.00pm.

Tickets at £5 are available from the Rectory (01787 310845), the Church Shop or Landers Bookshop.

There will be an opportunity to buy David’s book, personally signed, either on the evening or from the church shop.
