The King James Version has been trusted by Christians for generations. Today it's the center of a debate where critics charge that contemporary translations have changed essential Christian doctrines. In this revised edition of his noteworthy book, James White refutes the claims of those who believe the KJV is the only true translation of the Bible. In addition, White explores the differences between the NIV, NASB, and other translations while addressing some of the complex issues surrounding textual criticism. Sound reading for anyone engaged in, or intrigued by, the "King James Only" controversy.

Excerpt


In what is one the most imaginative and innovative structures for a book on the transition from text to interpretation, Translating the New Testament: Text, Translation, Theology is a fascinating account of the methodological journey of one biblical text, Luke 16.19-31, through the interpretive process. Divided into three sections (Text, Translation, Theology) the book provides, for each section, a chapter on discipline specific methodological principles, and then follows it by applying those same principals to Luke 16.19-31. Each scholar argues for their own position where necessary, and articulates their thought in such a way as to interpret the text. The result is an exegetical treatment of the text by some of the brightest NT scholars in the world.
