12/13/11: The Book of Books
Tuesday, we're talking about the King James Bible and its 400 year history. Our guide is the British historian, novelist and broadcaster Lord Melvyn Bragg. Bragg says that while there have been times the Bible was used "in the pursuit of wickedness," it has also transformed the world for the better. He joins Doug to talk about how this version came to be and how it has shaped social movements, politics, literature and the English language itself.
