Nathan5 Stars Out Of 5It is balanced and fair.August 29, 2016NathanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This issue, more than any other issue in the church, often brings out worst, most unchristian responses by many people. Dr. White does not join in and make fun of people, attack straw men, or even say anything disparaging about the King James Bible. He elevates it as a fine translation of God's word and tries to show through greek texts and church history that the other translations also likewise well made by gospel-based Christians, with no motive other than glorifying God. If you approach his book without an axe to grind, you will find that it will do two things. First, it will give you a new appreciation for the King James Version and all of the scholarship that went into its creation. Second, it will show the benefits to be gained from looking at the newer translations. In the end, it is a great appeal for unity in the church where should not to be division. I am grateful for my time spent reading this book.
WyoBibleReaderWyomingAge: Over 65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5A Good Book on a Sensitive SubjectJuly 10, 2016WyoBibleReaderWyomingAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I agree with the review given by Irgafriel of Upland, CA. I have nothing against the KJV or those who use it as their main translation as I use it myself, but it is not my preferred translation that I use. I have a facsimile of the 1st Edition of the 1611 KJV as well as the KJV that is current circulation today and the NKJV. I also have 12 modern translations that I use for verse comparison as well as several pre-KJV English translations back to Wycliffes Bible of 1388.
I tend to agree with Mr. White that the majority of Christians today have little or no knowledge of where the Bible come from or how it was transmitted over time (which is sad) as was the case with my encounter with two KJV proponents. They were told they had a 1611 KJV (which they did not have) and they also believe the KJV was the first English Bible and that King James had the original language manuscripts. Before my encounter with the KJV proponents I had a limited knowledge of the history of the Bible, since my encounter with them I have done my research on both the history and that of textual criticism. Mr. Whites book is very thorough and brings everything together nicely concerning this subject.
I would recommend the two following books for those who want deeper understanding the history of the Bible and the manuscripts involved, A Pictorial History of Our English Bible by David Beale and Intro to New Testament Textual Criticism by J. H. Greenlee

Bruce LandonNorth CarolinaGender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Immensely HelpfulJanuary 4, 2016Bruce LandonNorth CarolinaGender: MaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I have the 1995 edition of this book and I have turned to it numerous times as a resource for additional information on specific passages. This is not an overly technical book and yet it thoroughly presents an overview of the manuscript issues as well as specifics on many passages in dispute. The Scripture index in the back of the book makes it easy to look up certain passages that one may be dealing with to find notes, comments, and possibly the manuscript variant sources which can be researched for further study.
It is written in Whites easy to read style and yet it firmly supports the adequacy and superiority of the modern translations. If you are dealing with this subject at all this is an extremely helpful resource.
