Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0962889849, Paperback)

As suitable for reading as it is valuable for reference, this book provides an explicit and comprehensive examination of every word in the Authorized Version of the Bible that has been deemed archaic, obsolete, antiquated, or otherwise outmoded. The result is both a fascinating and encyclopedic study of words--their meaning, derivation, usage, and significance. The thesis of this seminal work is that the Authorized Version is no more archaic than daily newspapers, current magazines, and modern Bible versions. To further supplement the work and to substantiate the underlying thesis, reference is made not only to various newspapers and magazines but to contemporary Bible versions. This book is unique in that it seeks nheither to criticize nor to correct the text of the Authorized Version. Extensively documented with over 5000 footnotes, the book is also enhanced by fourteen appendixes.
