Pepperdine University Libraries now provides access to The Bible in English.
This database includes 20 different versions of the English Bible (including 12 full Bibles, five New Testament texts, two versions of the Gospels only, and William Tyndale’s translations of the Pentateuch, Jonah, and the New Testament).
English literature scholars will find this resource particularly insightful. The database highlights the Renaissance period, including the most significant texts from Tyndale to the King James Bible.
For biblical, theological, and religious scholars, this resource includes texts from the Protestant, Roman Catholic, and non-conformist traditions.
The Bible in English allows users to search all versions of the Bible or a selection of them, and display different versions of the text simultaneously. Doing so allows students and scholars to research how the Bible has influenced authors as well as how the English language has developed over hundreds of years.
