Customer Reviews

Anyone wanting to understand how we got the English bibles must read this.
Joseph J. Slevin
He just knows that it was a bad thing to be a Nicolaitan, just as he knows that it is a bad thing to disagree with him.
Ken Bradstreet
Many of the modern scholars love to vaunt the Aleph and B manuscripts as the oldest and most accurate manuscripts.

I had the pleasure of hearing brother Grady preach several years ago at my church, and I must say it was a blessing. He has an amazing way of teaching and preaching. My pastor let me borrow a copy of "Final Authority", and I loved it so much I bought my own copy. At first, I thought "Oh my soul, it's such a long book!", but once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. That was two years ago and I am currently rereading it for the third time.
Grady answers the question of what our final authority is, and brings to light some very interesting things people advocating modern translations don't tell you. He exposes Westcott and Hort's unorthadox theology, and clearly shows how the manuscripts used in translating the Authorized Version are not the same ones that all other modern versions are translated with; and so much more!
God never failed in His promise to preserve His Word. We have it in the King James Authorized Version.
I have learned so much from this book and I am immensly grateful to brother Grady for writting it.

Format: Paperback
Grady does a good job of coming up with facts about the history of how we got the KJV. I think it is well researched. He will not appeal to those who are ecumenical in nature because he still espouses the ideals of the Protestant Reformation.
Grady's appeal is in his treatise on not just the KJV but those bibles that preceded it. Anyone wanting to understand how we got the English bibles must read this.
The argument is, the Textus Receptus verses the Revised Version and its tranlations and versions.
Grady does a good job chronicling the translators from Wyclif to Tyndale, down to the KJV translators.
There will be many detractors to his findings. Unlike the anti-KJV books which have weaker arguments and more emotional arguments, Grady pulls no punches.
What he needs is to appeal to all audiences by mentioning the hatred for the KJV from some audiences. A must read for those researching the KJV only study. (I call it the Textus Receptus only.)

Important book for those who are new to the issue. Be warned though of some of Grady's opinions which have nothing to do with the issue at hand (so-called 'race-mixing' etc).

22 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Alexander on December 30, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a book for Christians. I think that all Christians can agree that when it comes to "manners of living" (works/sin) and of salvation (grace) it is only God's opinion that matters. So why do we have such diversity of thought within the Christian faith? Why do we get a different answer about salvation from a Catholic then we do from a Baptist? I can see differences in relation to "manners of living", but differences in relation to salvation are truly troubling. I mean, if the Catholics are right then the Baptists are going to Hell (or they will spend some quality time in purgatory) and if the Baptists are right then the Catholics are going to Hell (sorry, no purgatory for you). And yet we all claim to be Christians. The only difference is that we look to different Bibles (different Authorities) for our understanding of God's Word (His one true unchanging, don't matter what you think, going to Heaven or going to Hell, Word).

The reality is that for Christians there is only one Word of God. That is whatever God himself says about the way we should live and worship. Still, that doesn't help us much unless God makes his Word known to us, which he did. The question that this book is trying to answer is a question amongst Christians. Either the true word of God exists completely in written form or it only exists partially in written form. Many Christians (like me) believe that it exists completely in written form (KJV). Thus, I have a Final Authority to live my life by or more importantly to rest upon that good news of Gods saving grace through Christ Jesus. This seems to be a weaker position for me to take since I now have only one Book to argue my faith from, or to preach from.

Dr. Grady give a witty thought provoking look at the AV VS the new translations. It is a slam dunk, those who try to defend new vesions will not be able to find any flaws in this book ................or THE BOOK it defends so very well. Grace and Peace

you can argue your opinion all day, but if you don't have the facts and documentation to back up your argument, you might as well be quiet and listen. Final Authority is a thouroughly researched and documented research on the history of the King James Bible and how it came to be. Who were the translators, and how were the different bible versions translated and what were the source manuscripts. Which version can we trust to be "God's Word" to us in this generation.
