Debate about the accuracy of Holy Scripture due to translation and other errors has occurred over the centuries. Kenyon examines the details of textual criticism from several perspectives including the Variorum Bible. The first nine chapters focus on the non-English language origins of Holy Scripture. The final two chapters examine the textual quality of English language manuscript Bibles and printed Bibles. The book is nicely endowed with 25 plates of woodcuts and other graphics. An Appendix displays scripture specimens from Hebrews of nine English language translations from Tyndale's New Testament of 1525 through the Revised Standard Version of 1881.
