Product Description

Using a word-for-word comparison of the New American Standard Bible and the updated NASB, Laurence Vance provides an in-depth examination and critique of both of these translations of the Bible. In doing so, Vance points out the outright hypocrisy of those who maintain that we should reject the King James Version because it has undergone updates since the original edition of 1611. By fully documenting new errors to the word of God as introduced by the Update, he shows the folly of scholarship in promoting the NASB as the most accurate translation, true to the "originals," when the Update itself makes thousands of changes. By the evidence presented in this book, Vance concludes that it would be double jeopardy to accept the New American Standard Bible Update as the word of God.

Publisher Description

Containing a complete word-for-word comparison of the New American Standard Bible and the New American Standard Bible Update, this book provides an in-depth examination and critique of both versions. It aims to prove the blatant hypocrisy of those who maintain we should reject the King James Version because it has undergone "updates" since the original edition of 1611. It also demonstrates the folly of scholarship in promoting the New American Standard Bible for years as the most accurate translation that is true to the "originals" when the Update changes it in thousands of places. The new corruptions to the word of God introduced by the Update are fully documented. It is also substantiated that the Update has retained all that was wrong with the original New American Standard Bible. From the evidence presented in this book it will clearly be seen that it would be double jeopardy to accept the New American Standard Bible Update as the word of God. The first part of the book contains the complete history behind the New American Standard Bible and its various editions while the second contains sixty-six chapters offering a critical analysis of the New American Standard Bible through each book of the Bible. The book also contains a preface, epilogue, three appendixes, footnotes, and bibliography.

    The author of this work follows the example of others like him and tries to argue that the KJV is the real word of God, while other translations are inferior and corrupt or takeaway from the word of God. The problem is that there is not a right understanding of the issues involved with the original texts. Modern translations are based on more accurate copies of the original texts. Thus, changes from the KJV may reflect a more accurate understanding of what God intended his servants to write down for us in the Scriptures. Nevertheless, the author can't see this and instead believes that if the substance has been changed from what was produced in 1611, then it's wrong and less than the word of God. I would recommend getting D. A. Carson's work (available at CBD) called "The King James Version Debate: A Plea for Realism" - http://cbdreformed.christianbook.com/the-king-james-version-debate/d-a-carson/9780801024276/pd/24277?item_code=WW&netp_id=146536&event=ESRCN&view=details
