Hi, for a radically different view of Shakespeare and the Bible see the
Anthony Burgess novel "Shakespeare's Dark Lady'. In it he has
Shakespeare and Ben Jonson writing the King James' Version.

Is there any evidence that Shakespeare could have been a member of the
translating team?

I know it doesn't help people who want to read work on this topic now
but I thought SHAKSPERians might like to know that Steven Marx's book on
*Shakespeare and the Bible* will be published by Oxford University Press
in the first group of titles in a new series designed for undergraduates
called Oxford Shakespeare Topics. Stanley Wells and I are the General
Editors for the series.
