Overview

In A General View of the History of the English Bible, renowned New Testament scholar B.F. Westcott calls attention to some points in the history of the English Bible which have been neglected. According to the author, the history of the English Bible is a type of the history of the Church, and both histories have suffered similar fates. Those who labor most successfully upon them generally confine themselves to outward facts, and don’t trace these facts back to their ultimate sources, or notice the variety of elements which go to form the final result. Hence, with A General View of the History of the English Bible, Westcott endeavors to rectify this oversight and fill an unfortunate gap in scholarship. As he states himself, “As far as I know no systematic inquiry into the internal history of our Authorized Version has yet been made, and still no problem can offer greater scope for fruitful research.”
