Item description for Pocket Canons 10-copy Boxed Set: The Second Series: Books of the Bible by Various...

The publication of the first series of The Pocket Canons caused an international sensation, generating controversy and garnering headlines all around the world. Now the series continues with a set of ten more books taken from the King James Bible and packaged as individual, beautifully designed paperbacks featuring new introductions by prominent literary figures, from crime fiction author P. D. James to the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pocket Canons 10-copy Boxed Set: The Second Series: Books of the Bible?

Outstanding Presentation!  Aug 23, 2007
I have always wanted to read the books of the Old and New Testaments but have always been turned off by the presentation and organization of standard versions of the Bible. I could never get into the stories because the writing is always so small, and the stories too broken up by paragraphs.

After many months of looking I finally found this series!

I was astounded by the way the publishers dealt with the presentation and organization of these famous books!

1) Each book comes individually seperate as its own book!

2) The text of each book flows continuously and reads like a novel! (It is divided into chapters, NOT paragraphs!)

3) Each book is the size of your hand! Thin and small enough to take around with you! (The size of the text is perfect, not small at all!)

4) The pictures on the covers of each book do not attract attention to themselves. (You'd never know someone was reading a book from the bible!)

5) It is the famous King James version un-edited!

6) The set of books come in a hard cardboard box. Perfect as a gift!

7) The price is amazing!

(Although this set does not contain every single book from the Old and New Testaments, it includes all the main ones. I believe they will be eventually completing their project with the rest of the minor books.)

Forget about all those big, bulky, hard-to-read Bibles out there and re-read the famous stories all over again as they were meant to be read, continuous and novel-like! Outstanding!
 
outstanding, with reservations  Feb 16, 2002
I've never read the Old testament really, except for samll fragments here and there. These volumes provide a way into these ancient texts, and the short intro by contemporary writers give a soft entry into what is usually very dense matter. -
A few minor complaints. I would rather hear what Pasolini or CS Lewis said about a canon than some of the writers picked. Also, the books are cheaply made. The overall design of the package is very clever and innovative, but I would prefer it was twice the price for books that were a little more substantial.
