The King James Bible - its legacy


(Wendy Wise) #1

I just thought I'd share this with you all it's been broadcast over the last 3 days, present by James Naughtie (with all C words bleeped out!) http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00xln78 today's programme was about it's cultural and linguistic legacy. Whatever our beliefs The King James Bible has an influence on us all, most of which we are unaware of, but there it is in our everyday speach and writing and without it our language would be much poorer.


It also included this track by Max Romeo about Maccabee a book of the Apocrypha which is not included in modern "White Mens" versions!
