For Further Reading
The following is a list of publications in alphabetical order by author's last name I found most useful in my research. Without apology, this site is for Seventh-day Adventists to hopefully wake up a few. I believe the King James Bible to be the infallible Word of God and that the modern versions are corrupt, counterfeit and have deadly poison in them. I also believe that Ellen G. White was a messenger and a prophet sent by God to his children to help them in the last days and I make no apology for that either.
Some of the references are from Seventh-day Adventist sources and some of the authors are/were Baptists. I do not agree with all of Baptist theology but, sadly, it has taken some Baptists to expose some of the apostasy and stupidity that is present in their church and in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Those references with the author's name(s) in bold are ones I found most useful. I have done and do a lot of reading so this list will no doubt be added to occasionally.
There are various sources for the publications listed. Some are out of print so you'll have to try eBay or Amazon. Others may be purchased directly from a ministry. Prices and shipping charges can vary quite a bit.
Some books that have been named on other pages of this site are not included in the above list.
- Bohr, Stephen wrote the book Worship at Satan's Throne. In the front of this book it says, "All Bible Scripture is taken from the King James Version, unless otherwise noted." It turns out he has used the New King James Version (NKJV) mostly with no credit to indicate he did so. That's ironic because the NKJV in Hebrews 9:12 says Jesus went into the most holy place after his crucifixion (the verse is in past tense and it's not a prophecy), which is a serious contradiction of Seventh-day Adventist doctrine. It illustrates how one who I believe is a learned and sincere Seventh-day Adventist minister has been deceived by the NKJV which is most definitely NOT a King James Bible. I wrote to him about this issue and received no response. I know he's still alive because he is supposed to be in the Columbus, OH area next week. Pastor Bohr, by the way, was one of those who had the courage to speak against women's ordination and I applaud him for that.
- Coats, Daryl R. wrote NKJV Nonsense, a book of 36 pages that discusses some of the lame reasons to prefer a modern Bible version over the King James Bible.
- Cooper, Bill wrote The Forging of Codex Sinaiticus. The title tells it all.
- Council of Adventist Pastors published the book, The Adventist Ordination Crisis. Some of the contributors were not named because of "personal reasons" which I think is code for they were too chicken to be named. I recognized a couple on the list who were courageous enough to have their names in print, i.e., Doug Batchelor and Stephen Bohr. Though corrupt bible versions are used in the book, it's worthwhile to read it.
- Daniels, David W. wrote Is the "World's Oldest Bible" a Fake? This is another book that debunks the legend that Codex Sinaiticus is an old manuscript. It's 347 pages long but well worth reading.
- Daniels, David W. wrote Did Jesus use the Septuagint? The answer is no, He didn't.
- Daniels, David W. wrote Look What's Missing. This is a short and informative book about some words missing in the new bible versions.
- Daniels, David W. wrote Did the Catholic Church Give Us the Bible?. This book is different in that it's profusely illustrated with cartoons and pictures by Jack Chick and Deborah Daniels. Many wouldn't consider it a "serious" book but it's packed with good historical information. I found it very interesting that on page 49, David referring to Constantine says, "in 321 AD this last great Ceasar had made 'the venerable day of the sun' (Sunday) into a 'Christian' holy day." As best I can tell, David is a Baptist and most of them worship on Sunday. I find it hard to understand how Baptists that believe in the infallibility of God's King James Bible, know who the Whore of Babylon is, believe in keeping the ten commandments written by God on stone, etc., then neglect to worship on the seventh day Sabbath that was made holy on the seventh day of creation long before there were Jews.
- Dyer, Mercedes H. was the editor of Prove All Things which is the response of some Andrews University professors and alumni to the book Women in Ministry. This book of 423 pages is, in my opinion, the best book on the history of the ordination of women crises in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
- Elliott, J. K. wrote Codex Sinaiticus and the Simonides Affair. This book of 190 pages contains Simonides' rebuttals to accusations that he falsely claimed to have written Codex Sinaiticus also known as Codex Aleph. The book isn't written to defend Simonides. I found nothing convincing in this book to make me believe that Simonides had any reason to claim he did write that book if he didn't write it. That said, I think it's entirely possible that Simonides did on occasion forge documents for the purpose of monetary gain.
- Gipp, Samuel C. wrote The Answer Book. This is a short easy-to-read book of 164 pages that refutes many of the attacks on the King James Bible. It includes a discussion on the Septuagint, a book that has deceived most Seventh-day Adventist ministers.
- Gipp, Samuel C. wrote An Understandable History of the Bible. It's pretty easy reading, has much good information and is only 242 pages long.
- Jones, Floyd Nolan wrote The Septuagint: A Critical Analysis. My copy is a reprint with a title of Clouding God's Word the Septuagint with an ISBN of 0-9700328-4-6. It soundly debunks the theory that the Septuagint was quoted in the New Testament.
- Klein, Martin is the author of Thou Hast Magnified Thy Word Above All Thy Name. This is the best book I've read by a Seventh-day Adventist author discussing the new bible versions. Last I looked, the place with the best price on a new one was at the online store of Amazing Discoveries.
- Mundey, Jack wrote Corruptions in the New King James Bible, a book of 62 pages. It's not an exhaustive book but I did get some good information from it.
- Riplinger, G. A. did a FANTASTIC job with her book, New Age Bible Versions. This book of 699 pages (including the index) is the best one I've read on the new bible versions.
- Riplinger, G. A., wrote another great book, Hazardous Materials Greek & Hebrew Study Dangers. This is a book of 1,203 pages that explains how corrupt lexicons have been used to justify the corruption in the new Bibles. Also discussed are the evil backgrounds of some men involved in the publication of lexicons and the translations of the new bibles. I found it quite interesting but it's probably most useful for educating a pastor who has been deceived by seminary training.
- Ruckman, Peter S. wrote The "Errors" in the King James Bible. Dr. Ruckman has scathing sarcasm for those claiming flaws in the King James Bible. Christians have been inundated with claims that the King James Bible needed to be improved. When the supposed "errors" in the King James Bible are examined carefully, said "errors" evaporate. Why is it so unpopular to talk about the real errors in the NKJV and other new versions which are serious and easily demonstrable?
- Ruckman, Peter S. wrote Biblical Scholarship. This is another scathingly sarcastic denunciation of the deceptions practiced by biblical scholars. A good read at 560 pages. Unfortunately, Dr. Ruckman is dead so no more books will be coming from his pen. He did write a book exposing the "errors" of Seventh-day Adventists which I've never read and probably never will read. I have no reason to believe he wasn't very sincere in what he believed. When one is engaged in a life or death war it's probably easy to mistake who your enemies are. I think he is much less to blame for what theological errors he had than are our theologians who have had much more light and have been parties to publishing apostasy. I'm hoping to meet him and another Baptist minister, William Miller, in heaven.
- Ruckman, Peter S. wrote The Mythological Septuagint. A minister sounds very learned and the congregation's eyes glaze over when the Septuagint is mentioned. Some scholars love it because it supports readings of Codices B and Aleph. As Dr. Ruckman explains, its existence is a myth. The next time a minister refers to the Septuagint you can know he is poorly informed. The book is 197 pages long but is informative even for one such as myself who is not conversant in Greek or Hebrew. Someone with a background in Greek and Hebrew studies would probably gain more from reading it than one like myself who only claims fluency in English.
- Ruckman, Peter S. wrote King James Onlyism Versus Scholarship Onlyism. It takes a scholar to expose the sophistry of scholars and Peter S. Ruckman, Ph.D., M.A., Th.M., B.A., B.D. does just that.
- Sorenson, David H. wrote the book, Neither Oldest Nor Best. Many of the new Bibles have footnotes that cast doubt on certain Bible texts claiming they aren't in the "oldest" or "best" manuscripts. Dr. Sorenson's book explains why those manuscripts, Vaticanus and Sinaiticus, are neither the oldest or best. In his opinion and in mine, Sinaiticus was written by Constantine Simonides in the years 1839 and 1840. He also makes a compelling argument for Vaticanus being written in medieval times and not shortly after the apostolic era.
- Standish, Colin D. and Russell R. published the book, Winds of Doctrine that gives great information on some corrupt doctrines that have made inroads into the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
- Standish, Colin D. and Russell R. published the book, The 144,000 The Great Multitude & The Return of Jesus that's well worth reading.
- Standish, Russell R. and Colin D. published the book, A History of Questions on Doctrine. The book discusses another book, Questions on Doctrine, that was published by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Exposed is some of the apostasy of the princes of our church. The new bibles support some corrupt doctrines that have infiltrated the Seventh-day Adventist church.
- Standish, Russell R. and Colin D. published the book, The Sepulchres are Whited. It's a book of 301 pages and describes the scandals of some of the princes of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Unfortunately, the average Seventh-day Adventist Church member doesn't study the Bible very much thinking an adequate dose of spirituality is received by attending Sabbath School and Church. They are willing to accept the word of a Seventh-day Adventist pastor or scholar in deciding what is right or wrong. If you read this book, you will probably be shocked by some of the scandals and will understand you need to understand God's word for yourself and trust no one unless what they say agrees with what the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy say.
- Standish, Russell R. and Colin D. published the book, Modern Bible Translations Unmasked. I've read several books by the Standish brothers and none of them have been bad. This book is worth reading despite the fact that they, like many others, have been deceived into thinking that the NKJV is an improved King James Bible. Russell is dead and I read Colin has dementia so I can't write to either one of them. I believe they were both excellent men who did great service for the Seventh-day Adventist Church. They have earned their rest. I think it likely that like many others who mainly used the King James Bible, they were blissfully unaware of how corrupt the NKJV is. I have not read the NKJV through and I don't intend to since I would rather read the real Bible. What I've gleaned about Bible corruptions is thanks to others who have waded through a swamp to enlighten Christians regarding what Satan's agents have done to God's Word.
- Standish, Russell R. and Colin D. published the book, SDA Supplement to Modern Bible Translations Unmasked. Modern Bible Translations Unmasked was written for a wider audience than just Seventh-day Adventists so certain Ellen G. White quotations and discussion of unique Seventh-day Adventist doctrines were left out. This book of 28 pages has quotations and discussion directed specifically to Seventh-day Adventists.
- Standish, Russell R. and Colin D. published the book, The Road to Rome. In addition to being Seventh-day Adventist pastors, both Russell and Collin were trained in psychology. Russell also had training in psychiatry and was a cardiologist. Chapter 13, "The Entrancing Road," discusses the introduction of hypnotic techniques into some Seventh-day Adventist churches. They are both well qualified to write about that. Chapter 14 discusses how a Swedish hymnal was introduced into Seventh-day Adventist churches in Sweden that contains apostate doctrines in some songs. This is reminiscent of what has been done to the English Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal.
- Wahlen, Clinton and Gina wrote the book, Women's Ordination Does it Matter? which, among other things, discussed how the new Bible versions have confused gender issues.
- Wilkinson, Benjamin G. wrote the book, Our Authorized Bible Vindicated. He was the Dean of Theology at Washington Missionary College (now Washington Adventist University). This is a good book of 258 pages written by a Seventh-day Adventist scholar. This book, written in the 1930s, discusses the Revised Version but not the Revised Standard Version or the plethora of ones after that which are even worse.
- World Council of Churches authored the Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry (abbreviated BEM) document also known as the Lima Text because it was signed in Lima, Peru. This document was signed by Raoul Dederen, PhD as the official representative of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1982. This document can be downloaded for free from the internet. Some of the words are very pretty but mixed with them are sentiments that no Seventh-day Adventist should ever have agreed to. Jesus Christ is referred to as a "teacher" and a "prophet" and not as the Son of God. The Holy Spirit is allegedly given to all baptized irrespective of the form of baptism. It talks of "apostolic tradition" and a "fresh interpretation of the gospel." There is a lot more.
