I agree with the assessment of one reviewer below: White's book IS both condescending AND evasive! CONDESCENDING in his attitude toward a postion he despises; EVASIVE in his avoidance of the real issue (divine preservation of scripture) in favor of "noble" indictments of extreme positions and whacked-out personalities.
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.

As is with most typical scholarship, this book attempts to build your faith in men and knock down your faith in God's word. Filled with half truths and outright lies, this book successfully convinces only people who have done no reasearch of their own that versions like the NIV and NASV are reliable and that the KJV is not. I give it a 2 because the cover looks good and White actually admits that 1st Timothy 3:16 is correct as it is translated in the KJV. Unfortunatly it does not BOTHER him that the modern translations have removed God from this verse!

In recent years, the Church has experenced a massive problem in the form of those believers who seek to convince others that the King James Bible is inspired, the only English Bible for the English language, or some mix of the two. Among this misinformation comes James White with his masterful book, The King James Only Controversy. In the book, White examines many passages that have been used against modern versions such as 1 John 5:7. White's work explains in detail why the King James Only people have it wrong concerning the verses they cite. He also holds Ruckman, Riplinger, Cloud, Hills, and Waite to account for their various errors. White also does an unexpected thing in the book. He solidifies my belief that the Alexandrian text-form (compared to the Byzantine text-form) is the closest to the originals (which are lost). White also defends the honor of Westcott and Hort and the people involved with the NIV. These people have been smeared by King James Only groups.
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.

First of all, to my utter shame, I must admit that several years ago, I myself was an avid KJV Only person. I purchased Gail Riplinger's book: "New Age Translations" and was totally convinced that Satan was the author of a grand conspiracy to undermine and eradicate God's Word from the face of the earth. I meticulously went through the book and highlighted changes, deletions and additions as well as supposed testimonies by those who worked on the NASB and NIV translations. I then gave this book to my associate pastor and then to several of my friends in an emotionally charged attempt to "open their eyes" to the "evils" of the modern translations. I made snide remarks directed toward people who did not carry a KJV as I taught my adult Sunday school class. I told people that the letters "NIV" really should be understood as an acronym for "Non - Inspired - Version." I only wish that my associate pastor had been more straightforward with me about the depth of foolishness into which I had descended. I pray continually that God will forgive him for allowing me to wallow in such abject ignorance and I have asked God to forgive me for participating is such flagrant idolatry. On the other hand I thank God from the very depths of my soul that He has seen fit to liberate me from this ridiculous and baseless tradition. Interestingly, it was not James White's book that set me free; it was God Himself. Allow me explain.
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.

Dr. White's book is a thoughtful, meticulously documented, educated response to the anti-intellectual crowd that ignorantly promotes the destructive false teaching of King James Onlyism. You will find the truth on the KJV controversy in Dr. Whites Book, carefully explained, and well documented for further study. Finally, someone rational enough to actually provide SOLID EVIDENCE for what they believe instead of hot air and rhetoric. His critics have been silenced and shown to be without merit (see aomin.org).
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.
