In this book we have observed the battle which rages in fundamental circles concerning the question of the perfect English translation.

For approximately one hundred years now, a battle has been raging over the question, “Where is the Word of God?” Surely we Christians cannot expect a Christ-rejecting world to accept our Book as its authority. We can, of course, expect rebellion. We can expect the world to make attempts to discredit the Bible’s reliability. The…
