I’m not sure how prevalent it is elsewhere in the world, but in the southern parts of the united states, particularly in the Bible belt, we sometimes run into people who like to claim that the King James Version of the Bible is the only “true” version and that all others are an aberration.
Well here are a couple of resources that will help you put that myth to bed fairly quickly (and also help you with others who question the accurate transmission of the English Bible).
- Brief History of the English Bible by William Mounce
- Greatly Extended multi-part series on the history of the English Bible by Daniel Wallace
And also, James White has a book “The King James Only Controversy” that is widely recognized as a definitive refutation of the KJV only arguments. He has a collection of resources that might be worth checking out as well.
