"King James only" advocates seek to persuade Christians to believe that other translations of the Bible (such as the NASB, NIV, ESV) are inferior translations of the Bible and not as true to the original autographs penned by the authors of the Bible. We at ABR, and the majority of conservative Christian scholars, disagree. If you are interested in knowing more about the manuscripts behind the major translations of the Bible, or if you have had your faith in the NASB, NIV, or ESV rattled by a "KJV only" advocate, take heart, and read the following resources. We think they will prove very helpful to you.
