This was a fascinating book. Brake has taken his gentle obsession and come to be an expert in this field. Although I have done some study in the past on certain aspects of the inspiration and transmission and interpretation of the Bible, I came away with numerous new insights into this absorbing topic. For those who believe that "the only Bible is the King James Version", but still have an open mind (which is an all too rare combination in my experience) this book will open your eyes. In fact, my impression after reading this book, is that there seem to have been fewer errors when the Bible was being copied manually than when put in typeface! However, that being said, there is still no concern for the accuracy of the Bibles or for the faithfulness to the originals of the versions that we read today. Brake appears to have a great respect for the KJV but recognizes that we need modern translations because the English language is changing. For the modern person to understand most fully what the original languages meant, it is necessary to stay on top of what was written then so that we can faithfully transmit those thoughts to people living now. And, since language will continue to morph in ways yet unknown, scholars will need to continually keep that in mind as they do their work.
The intrigues and even the persecutions that arose because of the early attempts to put the Bible into the language of the common man has resulted in a very dramatic history with several ironic twists and turns. I believe that this story deserves a wide audience and hope that many will ponder over the truths contained in this book so central to Western Civilization. ( )

The topic of Bible manuscripts fascinates me, so I was really excited when our library purchased this book. I enjoyed the book so much, I've added it to my Amazon wish list ( )
