Review of David Daniels, Is the ‘World’s Oldest Bible’ a Fake?

David Daniels is the spokesman for King-James-Only and Ruckmanism, in its purist form, as promulgated by Chick Publications.

Fortunately, renowned textual scholar Elijah Hixson has written a detailed critical review of Daniels’s strange conspiracy theory. I defer to his analysis. People who love God’s inspired Word – and who elevate it above faulty human theorizing – should benefit from it.

Click read Hixson’s review.

Hixson states: “In the book, Daniels attempts to argue that Codex Sinaiticus is a modern production (c. 1840s). This bizarre position has been a trend in recent years among KJV-only circles and even taken up by people I’ve known and respected for decades.

“I honestly cannot stress enough how much I do not recommend this book to anyone.

“The problem with Daniels’ book is that it is built on one-sided reporting, conspiracy theories and a desire to defend the King James Version at all costs rather than the careful analysis, experience with manuscripts and expertise that normally leads to the identification of forgeries.”
