Description

In the Beginning, James. Orphaned, bullied, lonely, and unloved as a boy, in time the young King of Scots overcame his troubled beginnings to ascend the English throne at the height of EnglandÆs Golden Age. In an effort to pacify rising tensions in the Anglican Church, and to reflect the majesty of his new reign, he spearheaded the most important literary undertaking in Western historyùthe translation of the Bible into a beautiful, lyrical, and accessible English.David TeemsÆs narrative crackles with wit, using a thoroughly modern tongue to reanimate the life of this seventeenth century kingùa man at the intersection of political, literary, and religious thought, yet a man of contrasts, dubbed by one French king as ôthe wisest fool in Christendom.öWarm, insightful, even at times amusing, TeemsÆs depiction of King James has all the elements of a grand taleùconspiracy, kidnapping, witchcraft, murder, love, despair, loss. Majestie offers an engaging new look at the worldÆs most cherished, revered, and influential translation of Sacred Writ and the king behind it. ôEngrossing and entertainingàa delightful read in every way.ö û Publishers WeeklyIn the Beginning, James.
