    1. I am glad somebody has put in words how I feel about the King James only argument. I found the beginning of the book kind of boring dealing with history of how we got the Word of God. Probably because I already knew about the Bible's history. But the end of this book was fantastic and to the point that I believe all Christians (those who have been born again and not the cults) should read and absorb what is being written in the later chapters. We as Christians are beating each other up, while th [...]

    2. This book, a completion of several men seeks to defend the Bible. An immense omission to what God promised about His Word and the origine of the original languages seemed lacking. Although I would absolutely not claim that the KJV was reinspired or that other versions are heresies, the stance that this book takes in my opinion conflicts with a truly theologic position. They took more of an academic position from what I understood.

    3. This book offers a good summary of how "we" (English-speakers) got "our" Bible, but it is overshadowed by the ulterior motive of refuting King James Onlyism. This means that anyone outside of the narrow range of Christianity that deals with KJVO teaching will be a bit puzzled by the book's emphases, orientation, and digressions. Unless you specifically want the KJVO angle, find another book.

    4. I gave this book four stars because it came to my attention at a key period in my development as a Christian, a time when I needed to sort through the issues of the Bible's text and translation.I was 18, and I haven't read it since because I haven't needed to. I received the necessary bibliological foundation.

    5. This is a fairly easy-to-read book concerning the King James Controversy. The authors are conservative Fundamentalists that saw the need of right representation of the historical Fundamentalism on the matter of Bible translation and text.
