The publication of the first series of The Pocket Canons caused an international sensation, generating controversy and garnering headlines all around the world. Now the series continues with a set of ten more books taken from the King James Bible and packaged as individual, beautifully designed paperbacks featuring new introductions by prominent literary figures, from crime fiction author P. D. James to the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama. Engaging, provocative, and eminently readable, The Pocket Canons are more than "the Word made flash"-they bring a fresh, new approach to some of the world's oldest and greatest works of literature.
