This book is written with the layman in mind. There is not a lot of technical jargon. The author proves his point with undeniable facts, logic, and Scripture.

In this book Dr. Joyner dissects and destroys the King James Only group. Starting with the King James translators, using their own words, he shows they believed contrary to the King James Only advocates in every point. The author then gives incontestable proof that the King James Version is not perfect. At the same time he shows the NIV and the NASB can be of great help to the reader in many important places.

In chapter 4, Dr. Joyner shows the King James only view is not the historic fundamental view. Chapter 5 shows why we can be sure our English translations are accurate. The author then shows why the background for the NIV and the NASB is far superior to the KJV.

In chapter 8, Dr. Joyner shows how lies and slander is common for King James Only books. In chapter 9 and 10, the author shows how obsolete words are a bigger problem than most people would think. In chapter 11, Dr. Joyner answers the objections the KJV advocates give. He shows none of them are Scriptural or logical.
