Chatting about the Bible

"What's the big deal about the King James Bible?"  That's a question often heard by those of us who believe that the Authorized Version is God's final, and perfect, propositional revelation in the English language.  This has become one of the hottest topics in modern Christianity; but why?  What's the big deal?

Many, many books have been written on the subject, either explaining why the KJB is so special, or saying that it's antiquated and irrelevant, and that you should buy any of the 250+ English version that have been published since 1881.  But Dr. Sam Gipp, who is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced experts on the subject, has made it his business to simplify the issue.  Dr. Gipp is an evangelist, author, publisher, and founder of the Friend to Churches Ministries.  He is widely revered for his friendly demeanor, his sense of humor, and his indefatigable defense of the truth.  Although I do not know him well, I have met him, and in 43 years of the Christian life, I believe that he is the hardest working man I have ever met, in any occupation.

Along with his friends Andrew Garcia and Jonathan Marshall, Dr. Gipp has produced a series of brief videos in which he discusses some of the issues with a small group of college students.  Here is the first: the others will be posted subsequently.  I hope you find them of interest!
