TOP Publications believes this work will be valuable to some who may not be aware that it exists. This is a reprint of a book about the Dean of the University of Chichester in England, 1864, and it has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. We realize it will not be popular among some ministers of the Bible and Gospel because of its antiquity, but for those who take the time to read it, a reward lies ahead. Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this book - a reminder of this book’s long journey from the original publisher to a library and finally to you. As many stray marks as possible were removed. Dean Burgon was one of the most successful defenders of the KJB and its underlying text, the Received Text (TR), and he is revered by many.
The work is by Edward Meyrick Goulburn, D.D., D.C.L. Dean of Norwhich who said: “Burgon was in this country the leading religious teacher of his time, who brought all the resources of genius and profound theological learning to rebut the encroachments of Rationalism, by maintaining inviolate the integrity of the written Word of God as the Church has received it; by pointing out its depth, its versatility of application, and absolute inexhaustibility of significance; and by insisting upon it paramount claims to the humble and reverent reception of mankind, as having been “given by Inspiration of God….”By faith we stand” spiritually, And the great object of faith,—the stay and support on which it assures itself in temptation and trial, —is the Word of God.”
Dean Burgon’s works such as “Revision Revised, are second to none for defending the “Traditional Text” upon which stands the King James Bible. Any criticism of his work is worthless if and when his comments are thoroughly understood. His biography is a testimony to his righteousness and virtue. It is no wonder that God chose this man to defend His Words against the apostate in this age. .
His other works include “The Pastoral Office,” “The Causes of Corruption of the Traditional Text, Vol 2,” “the Last Twelve Verses of Mark,” “Inspiration and Interpretation,” The Traditional Text,” “Revision Revised,” as well as many articles and sermons. He was Dean of Chichester and the religious leader of his age. Stray marks are a result of the antiquity of the work
