The role of the bible : authority of the bible

Baker explains that attempts to destroy it under the pretext of clarifying its meaning have accelerated over the past one hundred years. In his paper he documents an investigation into the domain of Bible scholarship which, having evaluated the evidence found therein and within the various Bible translations, has determined that:
1.The Greek Textus Receptus, from which the King James Version and New King James Version were translated, is the true Word of God.
2.The New Greek Text, from which modern versions (Revised Version, New International Version, New American Standard Version) are derived, is a corrupted Greek text.
In his document he provides historical information concerning the translation of the KJV and modern versions, evidence which discredits the translators of the New Greek Text and the Revised Version of 1881 (ERV or RV), and Tables which compare selected Scriptures in the KJV, ERV (RV), NASB, NIV, and NKJV. The negative impact of numerous changes in modern translations upon Christian doctrine and also upon the Church is made apparent.
God did not write a book and send it by messenger to be read at a distance by unaided minds. He spoke a Book and lives in His spoken words, constantly speaking His words and causing the power of them to persist across the years. A.W. Tozer
