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

"A native speaker of English who has never read a word of the King James Bible is verging on the barbarian."

Then a barbarian I remain. On the couple of times I tried to read this work, my eyes glazed over and I nodded off. I don't dispute it has had a profound influence on English literature, law, government, etc. and can be considered great literature, however I can't pretend to get interested. Maybe its the character line-up I can'r warm to? or the gratuitous violence? Maybe if Readers Digest could condense the "good bits" ;o)

Well, off to polish my shield and sharpen my sword. I have a horde of corporate types to pillage next week.
