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 […]

History of the Bible in English

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 […]

The Christian Faith in the Modern World

I have found that anything written by J. Gresham Machen is worth reading.  I was browsing a journal about Biblical subjects when I saw a chapter from this book reprinted in that publication.  I immediately found a copy of the book on Amazon and bought it.  It was originally published in 1936 but that publication […]

Chafer, of Dallas Theological Seminary in 1924 but died in the same year (L.S. Chafer continued to serve as president until his death in 1952).  Thomas was […]

From God To Us: How We Got Our Bible

This is a shorter version of the authors’ larger work, A General Introduction to the Bible.  This is a concise record of the history of the Bible’s manuscripts and versions.  Here is a great comparison of the Bible’s historicity and integrity compared to any other book:  “Next to the New Testament, the Iliad has more […]

The Bible and Future Events

Many of us have read Leon Wood for text books in seminary.  Wood was long-time professor and Dean of Grand Rapids Baptist Seminary until his death in 1977.  In those days Grand Rapids was the flagship school of the GARBC and the voice for dispensational, premillennial, and pretribulational truths among the churches.  This book explains […]

Rediscovering the Church Fathers

I first read this book several years ago on several consecutive Saturday mornings with some friends as we all attempted to learn a little more about a long passed over aspect of our church history. Reading this book again highlighted a few things that make this book worth reading. For one, knowing more about the […]
