In writing this book I feel that it is here necessary to explain a few things. First
this book is not written by a biblical scholar that has spent years in the study
of Greek or Hebrew. It is not intended to address the minds of those of great learning.
It is written by a layperson and is intended for the layperson. It is based on the
idea of taking the Bible as it reads and comparing the doctrine found in the translations
to see if there is reason to reject or accept a translation based on how it compares
with the KJV. As a Seventh-
I would like to mention here that I whole heartily agree that some words in the KJV are very difficult to understand, and I agree that a translation using words that are more common would be very helpful, but I reject any bible that has doctrinal changes. If I cannot find a bible in modern English that maintains the doctrines of the KJV then I will find the meanings of those old English words.
