Ellie Gebarowski-Shafer, Religious Studies Review This volume proves once again that much indeed remains to be explored and that reception history is king. The volume, with impressively little overlap with other English language volumes on the Bible in the period, presents a collection of useful and well-researched essays on the development of the Bible in England, with some attention to Scotland and Ireland... [T]his volume contains some of the best examples of the work that global contemporary literary critics,
biblical scholars, and historians have produced.
Warren Cernaik, Milton Quarterly the essays in this excellent collection are alert to the complexities and distinctive characteristics of the early modern period and its authors.
Donald K. McKim, Church History [a] splendid volume ... This handbook gives us the most far-reaching and detailed picture of the Bible in this place and period ever available ... [a] masterful collection of scholarly pieces on England's early modern biblical culture. This is a treasure chest resource that more than repays careful and reflective study.
Eyal Poleg, Journal of Ecclesiastical History Reading a book such as this in its entirety is a rare pleasure ... this book provides a more nuanced and better grounded understanding of cultural and religious transformations in early modern England.
