The King James Bible Symposium 2011 – the people, the language, the effect
14th May 2011
The Symposium, at Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford, was a great success and the three excellent lectures from the Symposium have now been posted on-line.

The three lectures by the Revd. Professor Alister McGrath, Professor Jonathan Bate, CBE and Professor John Tanner are available to view at:
