'God was an Englishman'

some people would go to the extent to argue that God was an Englishman. why? because he spoke in King James language!

the joke is often quoted: 'the apostle Paul argued in King James language' or as one american said in his southern drawl, 'if the King James was good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for me!'

so, how did the KJV get to its elevated status in bible translations?

here's a good article to read about 3 books commenting on the KJV:
