Norton's first book, "A History of the Bible as Literature" (1993 and 2000), won the Conference on Christian Literature Book of the Year Award in 1994 for the work which "has contributed most to the dialogue between literature and the Christian faith."
At the request of Cambridge University Press, he edited the text of the King James Version of the Bible, conforming it to the original translators' decisions and modernizing the spelling, punctuation and presentation. Together with his "Textual History of the King James Bible," it was published as "The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible" in 2005. The text has also been published by Penguin Books and the Folio Society.
