128. Actually, it's not the KJV
for mainline denoms. Mainline denoms like the Methodists, Presbyterians, UCC, ABC, actually prefer the NRSV, the New Revised Standard Version, for ministry and education. The reason is the better scholarship and more inclusive language. Though, most do occasionally enjoy reading the KJV for the simply beautiful language. I do.

Mostly it is the fundies who still insist that the KJV is the way to go in all things biblical.
