Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Modern Bible translations still come under attack from the King James Only camp. In this revision of a book continually in print for more than ten years, James R. White traces the development of Bible translations old and new, investigating the differences between versions like the NIV, NASB, and NKJV and the Authorized Version of 1611. Written with the layperson in mind, The King James Only Controversy leads the reader through the basic issues of the debate and into the more complex issues of textual criticism. Enlightening reading for all Christians.

    This book is a real eye-opener and a breath of fresh air. It's very well thought out and not a difficult read at all. After doing battle with the King James Only people , I really appreciate the positive reviews here. I do understand that not everyone agrees with James White and that's fine but to be attacked because I read not only the KJV but also the NKJV, NIV and NLT just doesn't make sense to me. There is a lot of anger and hostility in the KJV only camp. As Mr. White states, Christians led a pretty enjoyable life in the 1500 years before the KJV was published. I wonder if the KJV people were attacked when that Bible came out? Anyway, I highly recommend this book, even if your a KJV person. God Bless!

    Some have commented that they don't like how the author makes claims about those in the "KJV-only" camp, but one must not ignore that the criticism toward them has been largely deserved by them. He does not engage in name-calling nor hateful language...he simply states what he has seen, heard and experienced. One must also not ignore the horrible condemnations and criticsm that he has gotten from them because he disagrees with them. He is far more courteous and polite than they are. While he is able to back up his case with facts, the KJV-only camp will usually resort to name-calling and claims of secret conspiracies. He also presents his case very well. He doesn't argue against the 1611 KJV...he is pro-KJV...just not KJV "only." He presents things from history that are plain and self-evident...things that can be discovered by anyone willing to take the time and actually take a look for themselves. The end result is a new appreciation for the Bible and the sacrifices and work it took for us to have an English translation so that even a "plowboy" can understand it.

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Even if one doesn't agree with White's support for the Alexandrian N.T. manuscripts over the "traditional" Byzantine, the book is a wonderful tool to educate people on how we got the Bible. I used to be very sympathetic to the KJV only position but it was merely because of a lack of knowledge. White lays the foundation of the Hebrew and Greek being inspired and not our English translations. This is crucial . . . so much good stuff in this book and written in a very gracious spirit.
