The Bible Version Controversy Explained and Resolved
Which Bible Would Jesus Use? is a new, entertaining and easy-to-read volume that delivers convincing answers to the most difficult objections posed by King James Bible critics.
Tough issues are explained like:
- Why does God need only one Bible?
- Where was the Bible before 1611?
- What about the many "revisions" of the King James? (Hint: there was only one, though there were a number of editions of the Bible)
- What about the so-called "30,000 differences" in King James editions?
- What is inspiration, according to the Bible?
- Do the originals matter?
- Why the Lord didn't preserve the original autographs, which doctrines are affected by modern translations and lots more.
- Three chapters deal with the important topic of Inspiration of Scripture––you'll learn what it is, what it isn't, what scholars used to say it was and what they say it is now.
- You'll find out who changed the definition of inspiration and when they changed it. And more importantly, you'll discover why they changed it.
- Why the Lord Jesus Christ would never use the ESV because of the known errors (admitted by experts) inserted into the text in Matthew 1:7, 8, & 10.
- Why the Lord wouldn't carry the NASB to church with him because of the known errors (admitted by experts) inserted into the text in John 7:8-10 and because of the way it refers to him in John 1:18.
- Why the Lord couldn't use the NIV, ESV, or the NASB because of the known geography error (admitted by experts) inserted into the text in Luke 4:44.
- Why the Lord wouldn't bring the NKJV into church with him because of how it undermines the historical integrity of his words in English.
You can finally have peace of mind knowing in your heart you were right all along to believe in the King James Bible.

5 reasons why you'll benefit from reading this book
- First: You'll learn how to convince the critics that the Lord Jesus Christ would unequivocally choose a King James Bible if he came to their church.
- Second: You'll learn how to prove that the elite textual critics who assembled the underlying Greek text of almost all modern versions actually believe that the Lord made errors when He inspired the Bible in the first place.
- Third: You'll learn how to present a new and unanswerable argument as to why the Lord wouldn't use the New King James Version because he'd end up competing with himself.
- Fourth: You'll learn how to quickly and easily answer the constant and mostly insincere question of "Which edition of the King James Bible is the word of God?"
- Finally: You'll learn how to "turn the tables" and put the critics on the defensive by asking the simple question "If the Lord Jesus came to your church, which Bible would He use?" It's a question the critics won't have an answer for because they don't have a Bible that they believe is inspired and inerrant. There are no NIV Onlyists, ESV Onlyists or NASB Onlyists out there. They don't have a Bible—You do.
