Summary
Since its publication in 1611, The King James Bible has been the best-selling book in the world, and many believe, it has had the greatest impact. It has spread the Protestant faith. It has been the greatest influence on the enrichment of the English language and its literature. Its influence on social movements (particularly involving women in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries) and politics has been profound. It was crucial to the growth of democracy. It was integral to the abolition of slavery, and it has defined attitudes toward modern science, education, and sex.--Book jacket
