Translating for King James.  £18.00  Ward Allen (Ed), Vanderbilt University Press, 1969, 155 pp., paperback.


“Being a true copy of the only notes made by a translator of King James’s Bible, the Authorised Version, as the final committee of review revised the translation of Romans through Revelation at Stationers’ Hall in London in 1610-1611: taken by the reverend John Bois…these notes were for three centuries lost and only now are come to light through a copy made by the hand of William Fulman…who, upon his death, in 1688, bequeathed to Corpus Christi College, Oxford, his papers, containing this copy of Fr. (sic) Bois’s notes.” (Title page)


Purified Seven Times.  £7.00  Bill Bradley, Landmark Baptist Press, 2001, 144 pp., paperback.

                Purified Seven Times: The Miracle of the English Bible   -     By: Bill Bradley

Inspiration and Interpretation. £17.50  J.W.Burgon, DBS, 1896, 507pp., hardback.


Dean Burgon wrote, “ The Bible is none other than the voice of Him that sitteth upon the Throne! Every Book of it,--every Chapter of it,--every Verse of it,--every word of it,-- every syllable of it,--(where are we to stop?)—every letter of it – is the direct utterance of the Most High!” Includes Burgon’s critique of ‘Essays and Reviews,’ a nineteenth century publication by apostate Anglicans. The excellent C.H.Waller attended and enjoyed these lectures. 


The Causes of Corruption of the Traditional Text.  £10.95  J.W.Burgon, DBS, 1896, 324pp., hardback.


A sequel to The Traditional Text. Burgon illustrates five accidental causes and ten intentional causes behind the corruption of the traditional received Greek text. Some knowledge of Koine Greek may be necessary to get the most from this book.


The Last Twelve Verses of Mark.  £12.75  J.W.Burgon, DBS, 1871, 370pp., hardback. (Paperback £12.75)


“The manuscripts, the lectionaries, the ancient versions, and the quotations from the Church Fathers all unite to show that Mark 16:9-20 was in Mark’s gospel from the very beginning.”


The Revision Revised. £17.75  J.W.Burgon, DBS, 1883, 549pp., paperback.


“In the way Dean Burgon repudiates the English Revised Version of 1881 and defends the Authorised King James Bible, this book will also form a strong basis for defending the King James Bible against the modern versions…”  Scholarly, sober, good tempered and brilliant. A tour de force.


The Traditional Text of the Holy Gospels.  £10.95  J.W.Burgon, DBS, 1896, 342pp., hard/paperback.


“Dean Burgon does three things in this volume: 1. He outlines his seven tests of Scriptural truth. 2. He proves the superiority of the traditional received text. and 3. He shows the inferiority of Westcott and Hort’s favourite manuscripts – Vatican and Sinai.”


Let’s Weigh the Evidence.  £4.50  Barry Burton, Chick Publications, 1983, 95 pp, paperback.


In plain , everyday language, Barry Burton explains the difference between the King James Bible and the new translations. Every Christian needs to know what Bible can be trusted and why!


NKJV Nonsense.  £2.00  Daryl R.Coats, Bible Believers Press, 1992, 36pp.

         New King James Version Nonsense

A response to John G. Butler’s “Sense and Nonsense about Translations.” “I have developed several rules of thumb concerning books and periodicals. Two of those rules are particularly relevant when I read “Christian” literature. One, if a work contains The Truth about in its title, it’s usually lying; two, if a work contains references to logic, balance, fairness or mental processes in its title, it’s usually unbalanced, unfair, illogical and mentally deficient.” Lucid.


That Rascal Erasmus.  £0.75  Daryl R.Coats, Bible for Today, 1994, 11pp.

Disederius Erasmus was used of the Lord to compile the authoritative Greek text underlying the A.V. Consequently, he is the target of modern ‘scholars’ like B.M.Metzger, who left this world in 2006. Daryl Coats has done his homework. This is quite advanced material concerning manuscript evidence.


The Forging of Codex Sinaiticus. £8.00 Bill Cooper, Creation Science Movement, 2016, 138 pp., paperback.


 In this remarkable new work Dr. Bill Cooper gives considerable evidence that Codex Sinaiticus, one of the two great idols of modern bible translators, is not a 4th century document at all, but was actually written in the 19th century. See my blog on this site for further details.


The Authenticity of the Book of Daniel. £6.00 Bill Cooper, Creation Science Movement, 2012, 71 pp., paperback.


A short 71 page book but full of fascinating information. Dr. Cooper draws upon ancient historians such as Xenpophon and Herodotus as well as ancient cuneiform discoveries which authenticate the Book of Daniel as inspired scripture. Critics have long claimed that Daniel was a second century B.C. forgery and not a sixth century B.C. writing at all. Dr. Cooper debunks the critics daydreams in style.


King James Unjustly Accused?  £12.00  Stephen A. Coston Sr., Konigswort, 1996, 391pp., paperback.

Currently unavailable.


“Historically enlightening…well written and documented…thoroughly enjoyable for lovers of truth in history. The misrepresentation in regard to James’ character is in reality a subtle attack on the historical part that he played in bringing us the Word of God in the English language.” 


          Did the Catholic Church Give Us the Bible?  £7.95  David W.Daniels, Chick Publications, 2005, 159pp., paperback. (Cover not as shown).


“It took 300years of clever manoeuvering to bring us where we are today. David Daniels masterfully uncovers facts blurred by Roman Catholic historians….History, that so many find difficult to understand, is made simple with down-to-earth explanations backed by many illustrations.”  Jack Chick.


Dear Dr. John, Where is My Bible?  £1.75  Herb Evans, Bible Believers Press, 1996, 17 pp., paperback.

“This pamphlet is a reproduction of a written dispute between John R. Rice and a layman (sic) Christian as a result of an article in the…Sword of the Lord…The intent of the pamphlet is to expose the NASV – ASV – RV (a rose by any other name) translations as corrupt translations and also to present a case for the Authorised Bible…being the infallible word of God.”


Translators Revived.  £7.00  Alexander McClure, Maranatha Bible Soc., 1858, 258pp., paperback.


A reprint of biographical memoirs of the translators of the King James Bible.


Counterfeit or Genuine. Mark 16? John 8?  £8.25  D.O.Fuller (ed) Grand Rapids Int., 1984, 230pp., paperback.


Most of the book is the brilliant defence of the named portions by John W. Burgon. His article on Mark 16 has never been answered. Other contributors are E.F. Hills, Samuel Zwemer and Donald L. Brake.  


True or False?  £8.25  D.O.Fuller (ed) Grand Rapids Int., 1978, 303pp., paperback.


Subtitled, “The Westcott and Hort Theory Examined”. Contributors include Terence Brown, Louis Gaussen, Philip Mauro, Wilbur Pickering and John Burgon. Includes a sizeable portion of Burgon’s powerful ‘Revision Revised’. This is good start up material for anyone new to the versions debate.

Is Our English Bible Inspired?  £4.50  Dr.Samuel C. Gipp, Daystar Publishing, 2004, 73pp., paperback.

            Is Our English Bible Inspired?

“The reader will meet the issue of our inspired Bible head-on and will understand the correct view. Furthermore he will be able to defend his position using the Bible, his “final authority in all matters of faith and practice,” not the opinions of men.”


The Answer Book.  £6.95  Dr.Samuel C. Gipp, BBBP, 1989,165pp., paperback.

           The Answer Book

Dr. Gipp answers questions concerning the King James Bible. Over sixty questions are addressed in his clear, easily understood style. This book will be a help to the young Christian as well as the seasoned soldier for the Lord.


Final Authority.  £ 14.50  Dr.William P. Grady, Grady Publications, 1993, 392pp., paperback.


A Christian’s guide to the King James Bible. “…contains enough documentation to please the mind, enough humour to refresh the spirit, and enough truth to warm the heart. This book boldly addresses those issues rarely discussed by critics of the King James Bible.” A thoroughly good read.


Given by Inspiration.  £10.00  Dr.William P. Grady, Grady Publications, 2010, 299 pp., paperback.


‘A Multifaceted Study on the A.V. 1611 with Contemporary Analysis. This book constitutes an eleventh-hour treatise on ‘truth’ and ‘reality’ that ignores all political correctness. It is the author’s sincere prayer that Given by Inspiration will spark a much needed spiritual rejuvenation among Bible believers everywhere.”


The Authorised Version – A Wonderful & Unfinished History.  £1.00  P. Hallihan, Trinitarian Bible Society, 2011, 80 pp., paper.


A brief history of the English scriptures. This book is generously illustrated and covers Bible production from manuscripts to printing, and from the autographs to the Authorised Version. A commemorative publication.


A Defence of the Trinitarian System, in Twenty-Four Sermons. £10.75  David Harrowar, Forgotten Books, Original 1822, 336 pp., paperback.

                                                                                                          A Defence of the Trinitatian System, in Twenty-Four Sermons

 A very able and edifying defence of 1 John 5:7 in the first seven sermons, followed by exposes of Anti-Trinitarian errors. (11/16)


Are the Words in the King James Bible Archaic?  £3.25  Paul Heaton, Kings Publishing, 1982, 55 pp., paperback.

          Are the Words in the King James Bible Archaic or Obsolete? - Book Heaven - Challenge Press from King's Publishing Company

“Much-to-do is made over archaic and obsolete words, in relation to the King James Bible, by its critics. This short treatise does not take every accusation into account, but just enough to let you know that those who make these accusations are full of hot air. Every new version on the market has archaic and obsolete words in them, but that is overlooked by the scholars.


Could the NIV be the True Word of God?  £9.75  Paul Heaton, Kings Publishing, 1995, 204 pp., paperback.


“This book…uses J. J. Ray’s method of analysis to see how the NIV attacks Jesus Christ, God, salvation, the atonement, the kingdom of God, the kingdom of heaven, hell, and a host of other doctrinal subjects, removing such words as sodomite, whore and harlot.” The NIV is a mish-mash of heresy and political correctness for the effeminate. CT.


Unicorns and Dragons.  £3.25  Paul Heaton, Kings Publishing, 2009, 57 pp., paperback.


“To believe that the behemoth, dragon, leviathan, and the satyr are actual creatures is honouring to the Bible, because they are described as such therein, and a literal interpretation is not contrary to any known scientific fact.


Preacher! What’s wrong with Those Words?  £2.50  Paul Heaton, Kings Publishing, 35 pp., paperback.

“While I have no axe to grind I do want to say that I am saddened at the many preachers I hear using words other than those in the text. I have to admit that I have been guilty myself, and have had to work hard at changing bad habits. Surely you believe God is able to have used the right words don’t you?”


Unusual but True Stories!  £1.60  Paul Heaton, Kings Publishing, 1995, 22 pp., paperback.                       

“This short booklet is designed to give you a quick look at some unusual stories and to show you that God will use any method He wishes to get a man’s attention, prove Himself to man or just accomplish his task in a manner that man could not do.”


What About Those Italicized Words?  £2.25  Paul Heaton, Kings Publishing, 1995, 31 pp., paperback.            

“There has been much said over the many, many years concerning the validity of the italicized words that appear in the King James Bible. My purpose in writing this little booklet was to just try and encourage the brethren that there is much evidence within the pages of the Book itself to show that these words are more than just “added” words by the translators. I am convinced that they are directed by the Holy Ghost Himself and I believe I can show that in several different places.”


Believing Bible Study. £9.75  E. F. Hills, Christian Research Press, 258 pp., paperback.


This is a very useful work for those wanting to pursue the Bible version issue in a little more depth. Modern critics cannot reasonably argue that Hills was not a scholar, but I think the book remains readable for ordinary Christians. Amongst much background study, Hills gives specific defences of many AV passages challenged by modern bibles. On John 7:53-8:11 for example, Hills gives an excellent defence.


King James Only Controversy.  £1.50  Thomas Holland, Bible Believers Press, 1995, 24pp., paperback.

This is a brief rebuttal of a book by James White in defence of modern bibles entitled, “The King James Only Controversy.” Dr. Holland gives examples of contradictions, straw man arguments, and false information in James White’s book.


Those So-Called Errors.  £22.50  Chester Kulus, Old Paths Publications, 2003, 488 pp.


“Those So-Called Errors is an excellent book on the alleged numerical contradictions in the books of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles, which many fundamentalists claim are the result of scribal error. However, as this work presents, Jesus guarantees the accuracy of the Old Testament scriptures. Whom will a person believe: Jesus or the “scholars”?”


A Reply to Dr. Daniel Wallace.  £0.50  Jack Moorman, 2005, 10pp., A4 sheets.

Dr. Wallace, a Professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, opposes the AV/TR position. Bro. Moorman with his usual thoroughness, clarity and skill here answers twenty criticisms of Dr. Wallace. 


Early Church Fathers and the A.V.  £8.25  Jack Moorman, Faith Baptist Publications, 64 pp., paperback.

Large format. Material for those with a deeper interest in the versions issue. Like all of Bro. Moorman’s works, very useful. A portion of the following.


Early Manuscripts, Church Fathers, and the A.V.  £15.75  Jack Moorman, Bible for Today, 2005, 448pp.
