I found Dr. Hollands book to be very readable and very informative.
Hanley
I knew early on in my reading that I had found a new "recommended introductory book" to offer people on this important subject.
Brandon Staggs
He doesn't come in and try to force his ideas and opinions down your throat, he presents them and then lets the reader decide.

Format: Paperback
Among those christians that consider themselves to believe in the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture, there are two basic approaches to the text of the Scripture as it exists today. The first, held by the majority of conservative christians, is that we should criticize the text of the Bible as we would any other book to determine its text to the best of our abilities. This view insists that since we can find the most important truths of christianity in whichever Bible we use, we can be assured that we have the message God wants us to have. The second view, which is the view of Dr. Holland, myself, and many others, is that the body of Christ must have a Bible which speaks with authority. The scripture promises the preservation of its words, not just its general message and fundamental truths, so that the very words God wants us to have must be somewhere. The author believes these words for the English speaking people are to be found in the King James Version of the Bible. The King James Bible has come under heavy fire in the 20th century, being disparaged by many modern scholars. Its translators have been put down, its text has been put down, and some have gone so far as to suggest that the reason christian conservatives are considered "backward" is because some still use it and believe it!
The author of this book, in a sweet spirit, free of rhetoric, biting remarks, or insults of other versions of the Bible or people who use them (you wont find any version called a "perversion," etc.), presents the rich history behind the King James Version and the traditional Greek and Hebrew texts it was translated from, along with the other traditional early versions which preceeded it.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Thomas Holland has written an excellent work that both gives an overview of how we got our Bible and conveys a well-informed picture of how the KJV came to be, and why its translators made some of the choices they made.
Amply documented, this book contrasts more than favorably with other books on the subject, such as one I forbear to name by an Arizona professor which conveys much of the same ground (re: how we got the Bible) but is smoothly but carelessly written, contains an anti-KJV apologetic with a nasty edge, and is blatantly unfair at many points. Holland on the other hand makes his points with due respect for alternate perspectives, but with tenacity. His is the kind of book that all will find informative, and many will find persuasive. I heartily recommend it to anyone interested in this topic.

I have read several books on the subject of textural criticism including the King James Defended, Unholy Hands on the Bible and several others. I found Dr. Hollands book to be very readable and very informative. As others have pointed out... He does not force his arguments down your throat... but looks at them in a very unbiased view. I would STRONLY recommend this book for anyone interested in finding out more information on the Subject of God's Preservation of His Holy Word: the Bible.
Two Thumbs Up Dr. Holland!

Format: Paperback
I thought this well-written, well-documented book had some good arguments in favor of the AV. It brought up some points defending the AV that I had not read before, and should be a must read for those interested in this issue. Don't let your bias for modern versions deter you from reading this book. It is well balanced and any Christian who claims to be seeking the truth should at least read it.

19 of 24 people found the following review helpful By Byron on July 18, 2001
Format: Paperback
Reading Crowned With Glory was reminiscent of the online Manuscript Evidence classes in terms of content to include the history behind the Authorized Version (King James Version) of the Bible and also the expose of the Alexandrian manuscripts (the corrupt lineage of manuscripts). The history of the AV and exposes of the Alexandrian manuscripts are presented in a kind spirit without flaming or caustic comments toward the corrupt manuscripts, their translators, and, their supporters. What's great about the "Tampering With The Texts" section is the accounts of the translators of the corrupt manuscripts and their Gnostic ideologies. This section comes in handy when studying basic Gnostic doctrines in contrast to what the Bible has to say about them. Especially helpful are the numerous charts and glossary to help the novice who is not familiar with the manuscript evidence issue. A must read for an historical account of the Bible!!

This is it!
THIS is the KJV book you want and need!
Doc Holland not only has twice the soul-seeking zeal of a James White or a Bob Ross type of refomed "scholar" (who doesn't??), but he's about twice as smart, too. I first became aware of Holland when an old female saint at a camp meetin' refered me to his website. She said something like this by way of a warning: "Don't get too much ungodly hubris from the way he made James White squirm. Just praise God for him." This, as it turned out, was excellent advice! (By the way, not only did White squirm, he ACTUALLY ASKED Dr. Holland to remove his criticisms from print!!-- Check around the net for their dialogues!)
Critics of the KJV movement delight in demeaning their detractors. Holland tells the truth in love, and it IS DEVASTATING. Buy a copy for a scholar's dupe you love and care for.
THIS IS IT!
