9.x - 10.x
Philip Mauro was a former Supreme Court lawyer who turned his pen to fighting false doctrines, even if it went against the prevalent beliefs. In this book, the debate between KJV and the Revised Version is tackled.
The content of this book is best described by the author himself:
The present inquiry is in regard to the many differences, some of them quite serious, between the "Authorized," or King James Version, first published in 1611, and the "Revised" Version of 1881. The total number of the departures of the latter from the former is over thirty-six thousand.
This raises some serious questions.
Why was such an enormous number of changes made? On what authority? Briefly, do they give us a better Version, that is, one that brings us nearer to the original autographs of the inspired Writings? And is the Authorized Version so very defective as implied by such an enormous number of corrections?
Not only is this a matter of the highest consequence, but it is one as touching which the ordinary Bible reader would wish to have a well grounded opinion of his own.
