Reclaiming the New that Jesus Unleashed from the world. Zondervan, 2018 By writing this book, Andy Stanley has taken a big step into questionable Bibliology.

God’s Word Alone
Matthew Barrett is the editor of the “5 Solas Series.” He writes this one on Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone). The others are on grace, faith, Christ, and glory to God alone. Barrett traces the Scriptures as our only final (and therefore inerrant) authority to the Reformation and then brings that doctrine home for today. Of […]
Stained With Blood
The subtitle of this book is, “A one-hundred year history of the English Bible.” It is an excellent book and accomplishes that goal in a helpful and scholarly way. Nordstrom praises the King James Version for being “the greatest Bible ever written” (p. 165) but also “It means we live in a translation era and […]
Authorized. The use and misuse of the Ki...
This is a 2018 book by Mark Ward, a PhD from Bob Jones University in New Testament Interpretation. Ward is a writer and trainer for Logos Bible Software. The point of Ward’s book is that the KJV is a good English translation but is only one of many, and that we as English readers would […]
The Savior and the Scriptures
Here is a good read from a generation ago on the inspiration and infallibility of Scripture and the battles that have been fought over the last 100 years. Lightner wrote this in 1966 and updated it in 1978. At the time he was professor of Systematic Theology at Dallas Seminary as well as an outspoken […]

Taking God At His Word
I’ve always appreciated Kevin DeYoung’s style of writing and his solid defense of the Word of God. The sub-title to this book is “Why the Bible is knowable, necessary, and enough, and what that means for you and me.” DeYoung gives the answer to this statement in eight chapters, followed by an appendix: “Thirty of […]
The Truth About The King James Version C...
This 35-page booklet was written in 1981 by a long-time professor at Bob Jones University. BJU has long stood for the historical and biblical view of Bible translation. Custer fills this little volume with nuggets such as: Plato’s dialogues are preserved to us in only one manuscript, in contrast to the New Testament which is […]
The King James Version Debate
I read this book for the first time (and a few times since, including now) the year it was published (1979) because, as a young Greek teacher, I was embroiled in this controversy. The KJV Only position escalated in the 70s but was never the fundamentalist position, especially of the movement in which I grew […]
