For theologian Robert Beckford, who wrote the Bible matters more today than perhaps at any other moment in living memory. Determined to reveal the truth, he sets off on a voyage of discovery through Genesis to the King James Version and beyond. It's a journey that takes him from Birmingham to the West Bank, from Jerusalem to Turkey, and from Rome to Bible Belt America.
