Taylor & Francis, 2002 - Bible - 539 pages
This book has been several years in the making, and much is owed to many advisers andhelpers, as well as to the contributors. I am particularly indebted to its commissioningeditor, Richard Stoneman, who first conceived the idea, and to his assistants CocoStevenson and Catherine Bousfield who have seen it through to publication.
