The King James Bible is like the Mount Rushmore of American culture. Being the first English Bible printed in the United States (in 1782), the King James Bible (also called the King James Version) has served presidents, writers, artists, and the common man as their primary book for religious inspiration. Most of the presidents, including President Obama in 2009, chose to swear their oath of office on the King James Bible. And we cannot well understand the American literary tradition without taking into account this Bible. Writers like Walt Whitman, Mark Twain and Emily Dickinson used it as one of their main literary resources. Even today, nearly half of Bible readers (45%) in the United States most often use the King James Bible, according to a Barna survey conducted last spring for the American Bible Society.
