← UPDATED: Why I want all our children to read the King James Bible

Agrajag's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by Agrajag

I have a book called "The Junior Bible", which was given me by my grandfather (a presbyterian minister, who also baptised me) on my first birthday (in 1951). It's pretty tame. I agee that much of the KJV is a bit rough for young children. Once they're older and a little hardened to brutality, let 'em read Steve Wells' "Drunk With Blood: God's killings in the Bible". That won't help their appreciation of the bible as literature, but it will help them to see that the ol' Sky Fairy is too violent to be real.
