"The Background of the Bible,"

THIS King James Version is the greatest English classic. . . . Professor Cook, of Yale, well says: "The picturesqueness of the language addresses the mind's eye; its regular, natural harmony captures the mind's ear; the verses fall into march time, the regular recurrence of antiphonal beats." ... It is and always will be the one Bible for our English-speaking race, for literary use, for memorization, for public reading, for it came into being under conditions both of language and life that can never again be repeated. Because of this marvelous literary charm and power it will never cease to be the classic English Version.
