Reviews - What do our customers think?
Finally some sense!  Mar 10, 2008
This and James White's book brought me out of the clutches of the King James-Only cult. Thank you Mr. Carson!
Realism? There sure is a need of it!  Feb 26, 2008
I'm not going to go into all Carson had to say but his thesis #13 is much needed in the KJV issue.
"Arguments that attempt to draw textual conclusions from a prejudicial selection of not immediately relevent data, or from a slanted use of terms, or by a slurring appeal to guilt by association, or by repeated appeal to false evidence, are not only misleading, but ought to be categorically rejected by Christians who, above all others, profess both to love truth and to love their brothers in Christ."

Love truth..... so I ask do you love truth or do you love your opinion? Do you ever not show t=both sides of an issue to make your opinion seem better? That'll show right there what you love.... Good book.
If the KJV is the Word of God in English then...  Jul 29, 2007
Does that mean that all translations of the Bible other than English are not the Word Of God?

It really makes me laugh when I hear people say the KJV is perfect. It is a translation of the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts. It was the original languages that were perserved not english. Modern english didn't even exist at the time when Jesus was walking on the earth.
Balanced, Factual, Excellent  Apr 29, 2006
Forget the reviews that simply attack the authors viewpoint. Weather you are KJ-Only or not, take the challenge and read the book. It is a very scholarly, yet easily understandable treatise on the biblical text. It is balanced, factual, and an excellent study that every Christian should read. It will no doubt help you to understand the difficuly of translation, and the reliabilty of modern translations. It will also help you to see the fanatacism of the King James Only advocates if you read with your mind instead of your emotion.
Either Jesus Christ, the Son Of God spoke the Truth in Matthew 24:35 and we have a "Perfect Bible" preserved today in the Authorized Version, commonly called The King James Bible or he lied----which this book purports to.
