Thanks to ORIGENalO for his very thoughtful review. I do answer two of the criticisms in ALL CAPS. If you have any question about whether you should bother reading A BIOGRAPHY OF THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE, this should answer your inquiry.

This review is long overdue, as I had already read the book about a month earlier now. This book can be perceived as a solid (albeit respectable) hit piece against the (dare I say) cultish-esque KJV-only camp. The irony of such a … Read More
It’s time you get a copy of REBOOTING THE BIBLE and join many who have read it and are astounded to learn a multitude of facts about how we got our Bible and why The Greek Old Testament (the Septuagint, aka LXX):
Was the basis for over 80% of the quotations of the Old Testament in the New Testament.
Was also the Bible of the early Church for its first 300 years.
And is the Bible for the Greek (Eastern) Orthodox Church (and has never stopped being its Bible.)
ESTABLISHING THE EXODUS – A CHRONOLOGY CONTROVERSY, Pt. 1
This article is taken from Rebooting the Bible, Part 1, chapter 6. Chapters 6 and 7 become the bridge to Rebooting the Bible, Part 2. (Coming later this winder).

Perhaps the most incredible argument against the historical validity of the Septuagint (as a third-to-second-century-B.C. creation) is this: It was fabricated, following rather than preceding the composition of the New Testament (NT). It’s a heated area of debate because the King-James-only argument stands or falls based on when the LXX translation was commenced and completed. A valid LXX puts the King James Version at odds with itself, i.e., the two KJV Testaments really don’t agree with one another!
[The following is drawn from an Appendix to A BIOGRAPHY OF THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE.]
