This treasure is out of print. We have correspondence from Mr. Maynard asking us if we would publish this. We are the only ones who the author had ever given permission to copy it, in this its most recent and now final form. Unfortunately, the author has passed away and it will never receive the editing, at his expert hand, that he discussed with us. God must have thought that it was fine just as it was, and we agree.
If you want to really understand the history of the Bible, this is THE book to read. Its history of documents is original and closer to the truth than many. It is KJB 101 for the debater.
The author, Michael Maynard, studied in Germany under the leading researchers of today. His Masters of Library Science degree studies taught him how to do real research, not the typical copying from other books.
"If I could recommend only three books outside of the Bible they would be Maynards History of the Debate over 1 John 5:7:8, Ruckman's "Errors" in the KJV, and Bouw's Bible Problems. These books teach one how to think about the Bible and its history, not what to think."
