The Bible as a mirror

Edinburgh based sculptor David Mach says of the King James Bible that it "communicated its message so effectively that its language still resonates through our speech to this day. Today we live in an age of sophisticated mass communication – satellites, computers, and live TV links – and yet we still have wars, famine and bigotry. To me that represents a failure of communication. The King James Bible holds as pertinent a mirror up to our human failings as it did when it was first published 400 years ago. The richness, devastation and pestilence of biblical imagery is as fine a subject as I could wish for to explore the hypocrisies of the contemporary world." www.davidmach.com/works/kingjames.asp
