The paper looks at the stylistic dimension of English religious texts analyzed against the background of the Firbasian theory of functional sentence perspective (FSP). Anchored in the functional approach to the study of language, it first defines the basic linguistic concepts, both in the area of English stylistics and the theory of FSP. Having introduced the research corpus (selected biblical texts in the New International Version) the paper explores three key FSP style markers (viz. the frequent occurrence of potentiality, the ratio of different syntactic realizations of presentation sentences, and manifestation of ideology). The phenomena under examination are discussed first at the level of FSP to be subsequently interpreted in terms of functional stylistics. It is possible to conclude that, in addition to pragmatic differences concerning the biblical discourse, the connection of the theory of FSP with the stylistic dimension of the text proved to be enriching and fruitful.
