This book is now a classic. It has been printed ten times through two editions. It should be in every library, school, seminary, and home. Dr. Waite's work answer's two questions: (1) Which English Bible are we to read, study, memorize, preach from, and use today? (2) Which English Bible can we hold in our hands and say with great confidence, "These are the WORDS OF GOD in English"? He examine's the KING JAMES BIBLE, proving its superiority in four areas: (1) its superior TEXTS; (2) its superior TRANSLATORS; (3) its superior TECHNIQUES; and (4) its superior THEOLOGY.

This book is the best. Dr. Waite has written a masterpiece that clearly demonstrates the superiority of the King James Bible as the best English translation of the Bible by illustrating that: 1. The Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic texts that it was translated from are superior to any other texts (nearly all other English translations (really paraphrases) use the wrong Greek and Hebrew texts as their foundation for translation). 2. The translators that did the work on the KJB were far an above more educated and interested in conveying GOD's Word from the original languages to English than any other group in history. 3. The technique used to translate the Bible was unique and rigid. It was designed to have repetitive checks and balances by scholars at a level never seen before or since (at least for the New Testament portion). 4. The theology was superior in every way. This is my favorite section, because Dr. Waite clearly shows how every area of doctrine is affected if one choses the wrong Greek and Hebrew manuscripts as the foundational texts for translating into English. I highly recommend this very readable book.
