Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation 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 joined Doug last year to talk about the origins of the King James Bible and how it has shaped social movements, politics and literature, even the way we speak. [Rebroadcast]
