Product Description

The King James Bible has often been called "the book of books"., both as itself and for what it stands for. Since its publication in 1611, it has been the bestselling book in the world. No other book has had greater impact.

The King James Bible has spread the Protestant faith. It has also been the greatest influence on the enrichment of the English language and its literature. It has been the Bible of wars, from the British Civil War in the 17th Century to the American Civil War two centuries later, and it has been carried into battle in innumerable conflicts since then. Its influence on social movements-particularly involving women in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries-and on politics was profound.

The King James Bible was crucial to the growth of democracy and was integral to the abolition of slavery. It even helped define our attitudes toward modern science, education and sex.

Endorsements

A potent reminder of how the King James Version has inspired daring thoughts in and out of the Pews.
Booklist

Bragg writes accessibly, with a gift for storytelling and an engaging style...recommended.
Library Journal

Bragg's tribute is of value because he has an aptitude for storytelling. He is breezily readable where other studies can feel dense and recondite. His turn of phrase is dramatic. Bragg's prose reverberates with Scriptural certainty.
The Observer

Bragg consumatley proves beyond reasonable doubt that [The King James Bible] is the source of our present use of English.
