Tue Sorensen writes, "Am I right in assuming that there are real stories
and serious theories that this was in fact the case; that Shakespeare's
hand is in the King James Bible? And if so, does anyone know who has
written about this, and how the main arguments run? Of course I realize
that there is nowhere near definitive proof."

My book of last year, 2002, JESUS: The Gospel According To Will,
explores and expounds upon this at length.  Email me offlist for a copy
if you wish.
