Publisher description for BibleMax Bishops Bible 1568
BibleMax, a program known for its versatility and usefulness, has included among its free downloadable additional modules, several Bibl versions and Christian texts of great historic interest. One of them is the version of the Scriptures known as Bishop's Bible. In the 16th. century, the Church of England commissioned a new English translation of the Bible, with the aim of correcting the deficiencies of the Great Bible of 1539, which was the only English version authorized by the Anglican Church. The translation effort was leaded by Mathew Parker, the Archbishop of Canterbury. The original version, developed by Parker and his team, was revised in 1572, but the version included in this module of BibleMax is the first version, published in 1568. This module takes advantage of all the features of BibleMax software. For example, you can consult commentaries and other texts related with the chapter/verse you are reading as in other, more modern versions of the Bible installed within the core program. Also, you can use this version for comparing it with other translations, which makes it ideal for scholars or laypersons interested in the study of the Bible.
