Product Description

The King James Version Debate is the first book-length refutation of the view that the KJV is superior to contemporary translations written for both pastors and laypeople. The author concisely explains the science of textual criticism since the main premise advanced by KJV proponents is the superiority of the Greek text on which it is based. After showing the problems with this premise, the author refutes the propositions that: 1) the KJV is the most accurate translation 2) it is the most durable; 3) its use of the Old English forms makes it the most reverent; 4) it honors Christ more than do other versions; 5) it is most easily memorized; 6) it is most suitable for public reading. Concluding the book is an appendix in which, on a more technical level, the author answers W.N. Pickering's "The Identity of the NT Text," the most formidable defense of the priority of the Byzantine text yet published in our day.

    I have been studying this issue for quite sometime, and i have recently acquired my own copy and read through it. This book is an amazing precursor to the book "The King James Only Controversy" by James R. White. I will highly recommend this to my friends and family. This is a MUST have for every Christian's library! :-)

    This book is very hard to understand unless you have a phd in english. It is not written to be easily understood. It was kinda disappointing. The parts that I did understand were good though, just far and few between. Unfortunately this is the only book written that explains the differences in the available greek texts.
