A fine book!  Feb 29, 2008
I am a little biased: Gary is reformed as am I, and I feel the New King James Bible is one of the most under-rated Bibles out there! Good stuff!
Why different versions of the Bible?  Sep 20, 2007
Gary F. Zeolla is the founder and director of Darkness to Light, a ministry dedicated to explaining and defending the Christian faith. However, early in his Christian walk, he found himself bewildered by all of the different Bible versions that were available. And so, as he studied the Word, he studied what was behind the various versions, and how we got them. This book is the fruit of Mr. Zeolla's labor.

Overall, I found this to be a fascinating book. The author does an excellent job of explaining what is behind the various Bible versions, and what makes them different. Now, he does come to his own conclusions, expressing his preference for the New King James Version and the Literal Translation of the Bible. But, in spite of that, I think that he does do a good job of explaining the basis of all translations.

So, if you want to understand what makes all of those versions of the Bible different, then get this book. It is one of the most interesting and informative books that I have read in a while, and I highly recommend it to all Christians.
ALL KJV Onlyist's should read this book  May 29, 2006
Gary Zeolla does a great job handling the Bible version debate. He shows a different side of the debate that most KJV Only church members are probably not familiar with. For those who have been taught KJV Only, he supports the superiority of the Textus Receptus over the CT. His reasoning is well described, as he discusses problems with Dynamic Equivalence, and Textual Criticism. KJV only believers should support these conclusions.
However, he makes it clear the TR is not the same thing as the Majority Text (a common error taught in the KJV only circle).
He also explains that the KJV is only a translation and that just because another version reads differently, does not mean it is wrong. He then points out many areas where the KJV does not translate some words as accurately as possible. He then does several verse comparisons between the KJV and NKJV. He discusses common verses that KJV only advocates use to attack NKJV, and shows why the NKJV translators use the word which they do, and why they differ from the KJV. Many times the NKJV gives the more literal translation. Many times the KJV gives an equally or more literal translation. The result is that the reader (hopefully KJV only folk) sees the arguments and logic used by KJV Only teachers is flawed and in some cases flat out lies.
Zeolla does prefer the NKJV, but does not discredit the KJV. He also believes that a Christian would benefit by studying many translations. This is so different than what KJV only advocates teach. KJV only believers should read this book with an open mind and in prayer that God would help them realize the truth.
A very bias and unfair book.  Feb 27, 2006
The title of this book is a bit misleading.Rather than discuss the difference between the Bible translations today and why they occur,the main purpose of this book is to promote the NKJV Bible and the Majority Text(MT) Greek manuscripts.This becomes clear immediately in the preface when the author starts praising himself for being the only person in his Bible study using the NKJV Bible.Throughout the book the author speaks about how great the translation method by the translators of the NKJV was, and how the NKJV Bible is "more dependable" than the NIV and all other modern translations.

Throughout the book the author accuses the Critical Text(CT) of being the work of Gnostics.Whenever there is a disagreement between the MT and the CT the author inserts his assumption that a Gnostic altered the CT making it different from the MT.However,the author should note that the CT was around hundreds of years before the MT,therefore if there is a disagreement between the two text it would be due to an addition to the CT and not a omission of the MT.The author makes his bias about the CT known when he make this statement about the NIV Bible,"it's reliance on the CT makes it a less dependable rendering of the Word of God".Also anything that strengthens the integrity of the CT or weakens the integrity of the MT the author refuses to talk about in his book.Two examples of this would be why Mark 16:9-20 and John 7:53-8:11 is present in the MT but not the CT.The author says he doesn't want to discuss why early manuscripts do not contain these verses because it's "too complex".The real reason why he doesn't discuss these stories is because they both contain Greek words that are found no where else in the entire New Testament which suggest the author of these storeis were not John,Mark,or any other New Testament writer.Also John 7:53-8:11 contain factual errors and Mark 16:8 doesn't connect with Mark 16:9.Rather than state these facts the author says it's "too complex" and goes on to say concering John 7:53-8:11, "there is no doubt in this writer's mind this passage records a genunie incident in the life of Christ",but gives no evidence or reason on how this story could be authentic,farther showing his bias.These are just two of many instances.

Finally it is true that unlike most MT supporters,the author is not a KJV only advocate.In fact,he critiques the KJV very often in his book.However, I don't believe that's something worth noting when the author is clearly a NKJV only advocate.
Very helpful  Dec 10, 2004
Before I mention anything about this book, I would like to clarify that the NKJV is NOT in any way a works-based savlation Bible. If it were, the following text from it would have to be changed: "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." That is the NJKV of Ephesians 2:8-9. Anyhow, as with any subject, you should always look at more than one source of information, but this is one that gives a lot of information. Don't just use this one source, but continue your research. This has a lot of valuable info all in one spot--and in an "easy to read" format which will make it good for the average joe type. It is still also a nice additional quick-reference to add to the library for those wanting something that is a more "scholarly type" of read.
