I will listen again because although dense with facts it is not at all tedious Congratulations Melyn Bragg, this is a classic. Listened to it over a long period but was easy to come back to and the way it was presented was accessible and interesting. An interesting sketched history of the KJV but when the author gets into opinion it gets murky.
At times it seemed that Mr Bragg was making the case that this book was responsible for all good things and all doers of good things that have ever existed, which seems a bit weak to me. I almost gave up on the book after the annoying chapter on Richard Dawkins mainly because it seemed utterly inaccurate and unnecessary to me. I'm glad I kept going; we secularists are nothing if not open minded, to state the bleeding obvious.
Unfortunately the reader has a speech impediment.
