Ronald Cox on First Encountering the KJB

Ron Cox, associate professor of religion at Pepperdine University, explores the theme “The King James Bible in North American Churches Today.” Cox tells the story of how the King James Bible has ceased to be the bible of choice among North American English speakers. The lecture includes a discussion of the democratization of the Bible through more accessible translations, as well as the consequences of the dethroning of the King James Version in North American churches. This presentation occurred on September 20, 2012 as the closing lecture of the Pepperdine University Libraries’ “Manifold Greatness” exhibition about the historic tome.
