Extra Content

​Over the years, I've written a variety of content saved in various forms and in various places that is probably many years away from being reformatted and edited in the way needed for incorporation into the blog proper. So I thought I'd provide some of that here so it would at least be available. Enjoy!

Personal Evangelism

These articles are chapters from a workbook for a brief course on Personal Evangelism that I occasionally teach. They have a focus on understanding what the gospel is before seeking to communicate it. Feel free to use.

Review Of "A More Sure Word"

This is a review of the book, "A More Sure Word," by R. B. Ouellette. The book was required reading when I was in grad school, and has become a kind of "standard" treatment of the KJVO issue in some circles. I evaluate its treatment of the sources and its basic argument here.

Review Of The HBBC Statement On Scripture

This ​​​​​​​​​​​​very long article is a detailed examination of the doctrinal statement on the KJV and the MT and the TR from my alma mater, Heartland Baptist Bible College. I explain why no one, regadless of what their position is, should sign that statement.

Textual Essays

These essays/brief notes, take up a variety of textual variants. That is, they take up some of the places where the Greek text behind the KJV is different from the Greek text behind a translation like the ESV. Most of them deal with passages where it becomes clear that arguments about the KJV that invoke "the majorty of manuscripts" or "the majority text" are generally dishonest. Others take up passages where a question was asked of me and I wrote a brief response.

Acts 8:37 In The KJV
