My Favorite-Ever Preface to a Book

A man named Roy L. Branson Jr. has written a book entitled KJV 1611: Perfect! A Conviction, Not a Preference in which he sets forth (in hyperbolic, emotional language that would make any normal person suspicious) the proposition that one should use only the KJV   -   no other English translation of the Bible is valid or reliable.

If you want to read more of the book itself, you can go here:

KJV 1611: Perfect! A Conviction, Not a Preference

One does not need a working brain to write a book.

Fasten your seatbelts. Here goes:

You are tired of hearing about old manuscripts, Greek and Hebrew debates, and reading endless explanations of why such and such a word in the "original language" had a "root" the meaning of which is.......or hearing that some word or verse is "unfortunately translated" in the King James as.... And, you really are not interested in Alephs, uncials and codices, whatever they are. What you really would like to know is if there is a Bible, somewhere, that you can read in your language, that you can trust in every case, and is all between one set of covers. Here is relief! In these pages you will find simple, common sense, easy to understand and impossible to refute reasons proving that the King James 1611 is the ONLY Word of God in English; THE Bible that you can read in your language, trust in every word, and have it all between one set of covers. You need examine no manuscript, nor know a single word of Greek or Hebrew, own a Greek lexicon, dictionary nor any other such thing. In fact, you probably are better off by far if you do not. Oh, how pleasant it would be if no preacher, teacher or professor had such fancied "helps." If we could somehow blank their collective minds of all the Greek they had ever learned, and hide all their Greek and Hebrew texts, lexicons and the like, we would do the faith of Christ better service than one would have done the ladies of London if they could have somehow kept all sharp instruments from the hands of Jack the Ripper. Forget the Manuscripts and the Original Languages! You do not need them, and neither does anyone else! Much, much too much is made of so-called "manuscript evidence." It is true that advocates of the KJV can present overwhelming manuscript support for the KJV, but there are better ways to determine today just what and where the Word of God is. This will shock many of our scholars, and surely will bring some derision upon the author, but there are more certain ways to judge the translations - ways that everyone can easily understand. That is what we intend to illustrate in the following pages ...

P.S.   Now that you've been told all about how wonderful the KJV is, take a look HERE.
