King James Onlyism: A New Sect
"The doctrine that the King James Version is the only authoritative Bible for English-speaking people has become known as King James Onlyism, taking on the characteristics of a sect. Using evidence from Scripture, history, theology, textual criticism, and ancient and modern Bible versions, this book demonstrates that this doctrine is of recent vintage, being unknown before the mid-twentieth century. It also demonstrates that conservative modern translations of the Bible equally support the cardinal doctrines of Scripture"--Amazon.com.

Dr. Price has done the church a great service. This book is informative, accurate, and gracious--the best book on the topic that I have found. I highly recommend it!
The other reviewers did not even take the time to purchase and read the book! Dr. Price has presented a powerful and scholarly volume that deals with the mistaken idea that a translation is in the same stream of the original language scriptures. His evidence and spirit deal with a very emotionally driven issue for so many people. This book is not a hit piece, nor is it a pack of thickly worded distortions meant to simple confuse. Its purpose is to provide accurate and honest information.
