Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 7 April 2011.

Melvyn Bragg places the Bible in context, giving us the background, the battle between Latin and “coarse” English, the story of the men who battled to translate the bible for everyman and the final development into the King James Bible. Once made its influence too is tracked, through war, religious divide and personal freedoms. As Melvyn Bragg says, you may be religious, of another religion or none, but undeniably this story of the making of the King James Bible and its influence is a history well-worth reading.
