Dr. William Combs, of Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary, recently posted a series of short blog posts on the origins of the KJV-Only movement (the belief that the King James Version of the Bible is the only acceptable English Bible). I have greatly appreciated Combs’ other articles on the KJV questio, and found this series beneficial as well.
Here are links to his posts if you’re interested, as well as to his longer articles on the subject:
- KJV-Only Origins: “Beginning of KJV-Only Movement
- KJV-Only Origins: “Dean Burgon: Father of the KJV-Only Movement”
- KJV-Only Origins: “Dean Burgon and the Revised Version”
- KJV-Only Origins: “The KJV-Only Movement Comes to America”
- KJV-Only Origins: “The Modern KJV-Only Movement”
- “The Preservation of Scripture”
- “Errors in the King James Version?”
- “Erasmus and the Textus Receptus”
I should also mention, that I do try to maintain a group blog and resource site on the issue myself. KJVOnlyDebate.com includes links to resources on this issue, and several blog posts (although lately, I haven’t found as much time to keep it continually updated).
