This book has been found intimidating by many KJV advocates and little wonder- It was WRITTEN to intimidate! Still, I truly believe White really is off base in many of his contentions and conceits.
One of White's supporters here speaks nobly of "thinking for one's self." Here, then, is my challenge:
Go ahead and read White's book-- I did! BUT, if you're REALLY willing to think on your own, ALSO read David Cloud's well-written response, available for on-line viewing at [...] and FREE no less.
There is the challenge. Take it if you will.
There are a few flaws. On the surface, there seems to be a whiff of arrogance surrounding White's theses. Also, the are hints of pride beaming from White. This pride in White's own work rains a bit on the good things the book does.
Overall, White has provided a service to the Church in debunking the King Jimmy Only nonsense.
I had long been aware that the original autographs were written in Hebrew and Greek, but I was totally ignorant about the process of textual transmission. Nevertheless, I asked myself the question, why should the KJV be the standard by which all others are judged when it itself is a translation? My conclusion was that this was absolutely illogical and foolish.Read more ›
The "King James Only Controversy" is a very well written book that shreds every KJV Onlyist argument I've been told by misinformed believers. This book is NOT merely a critique of Riplinger or Ruckman as the detractors would have you believe. Dr. White has responded to Holland's EMBARRASING "review" which was full of misrepresentation, misquoting, and straw man arguments. An honest examination will allow you to quickly realize who is the most honest and convincing.
Dr. White's book has really opened my eyes to the wonderful and amazing way in which God inspired and preserved his Word. I learned a great deal about the King James translators, and Erasmus (the Roman Catholic priest and textual critic), who contributed to the Greek manuscripts used for the KJV translation. I have renewed confidence in the accuracy and faithfulness of the excellent, reputable, modern translations: NIV, NKJV, and NASB which uphold all of the same fundamental doctrines of the King James Bible.Read more ›

...because it wasn't White that backed out.
