Rick Shrader‘s Review:
F.F. Bruce is usually a good source especially for history of the Bible and Bible history. In this book, first published in 1961, the edition I have in 1978, you will find a good detailed history of the English Bible leading up to the King James Version, and a few after that. It is an amazing story how God brought about the English Bible and kept it from being destroyed. Especially helpful is Bruce’s review of The Translators to the Reader, the original introduction to the KJV. “To those who complain that they have introduced so many changes in relation to the older English version, they answer by expressing surprise that revision and correction should be imputed as faults. The whole history of Bible translation in any language, they say, is a history of repeated revision and correction.”
