Read full description of the books Bartlett's Bible Quotations:From the quote aficionado to the historical researcher, fans of Bartlett's will be thrilled to see BARTLETT'S BIBLE QUOTATIONS. Assembled in a new format to delight both researchers and casual readers, BARTLETT'S BIBLE QUOTATIONS is an essential collection of Bible quotes pulled from the prestigious BARTLETT'S FAMILIAR QUOTATIONS. It is both a valuable reference tool and an eminent collection to be browsed through for pleasure. The quotes are organised simply and elegantly, from Genesis to Revelations, and include Psalms, Proverbs, and the Apocrypha. Bartlett's highlights the essential passages of the beloved text (originally from the King James Version), from the educational to the ethical, from stern to stirring, creating a view of the Bible unlike any other.
Read information about the author(June 14, 1820 – December 3, 1905). "Father a descendant of the pilgrim ship Mayflower. A very bright boy, he was reading at age three and had read the entire Bible by nine. He finished school at age sixteen and went to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he worked for the University Bookstore that served Harvard. By age twenty-nine he owned the store. Known for his memory for quotations and trivia, "Ask John Bartlett" became a byword in the community when someone was stumped.
He began keeping a commonplace book of quotations to answer queries and in 1855 privately printed the first edition of his Familiar Quotations. That edition of 258 pages contained entries from 169 authors. One-third of the book was quotations from the Bible and from the works of William Shakespeare, most of the balance being lines from the great English poets." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Ba...
