"This is the best book on the reliability of the King James Bible I have ever read. Every Preacher and Layperson in America needs to read this book!"
Dr. Jack F. Hyles

From the Book's: INTRODUCTION
In 1996-1997 I was privileged to travel to schools and churches all across the American States conducting “Inspiration & Preservation” seminars. During this time I also taught a seminary level course by the same title for the School of Biblical & Theological Studies.
Everywhere I went the people would tell me that I needed to write a book. So I set out to do so. Then, about a year or so later (and 4 near completely written only to be discarded manuscripts later) I realized that the information I was teaching in the seminar and at the seminary was nothing that had not already been published elsewhere.
So not wanting to rewrite the published works of greater minds such as Dean John William Burgon, Dr. William P. Grady, Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, Dr. Daniel A. Waite, Dr. Sam Gipp, Dr. David Otis Fuller, Dr. Benjamin Wilkinson, Mrs. Gail Riplinger, and others, I decided not to write a book at all.
But then I still had the problem of not having a printed version of the seminar that people could take home to study and share with their friends and loved ones. So I began to pray and ask the Lord what I should do.
Quickly the answer came and the decision was made to transcribe the seminar lessons for publication. That was done in 1998. The transcripts were quickly typeset and printed. The book was privileged to go to press 4 times in only 2 years.
Each press run was identical to the first. No changes were made between printings. I didn’t even take the time to correct the typos because doing so would require new typesetting and I just did not have time to do it.
In April of 2000 an updated 5th edition of the book was printed. Unlike the original 4 printings, the 5th edition had been carefully proofread to remove the typos that blemished the original editions.
I have not rewritten the book - each chapter is still basically the transcript of the cassette tape of a seminar lesson. But a few changes have been made. The expansion of the seminar from five lessons to six has resulted in the addition of a new chapter. I have also, revised each of the original chapters - adding additional information where it was appropriate to do so and revising certain sentences and paragraphs to bring the book in conformity to the way I presently give the seminar.
Thousands of copies of the Inspiration & Preservation seminar tapes have been distributed throughout the North American Continent, Australia, the Philippines, and the United Kingdom. Thousands more have listened to these lessons in RealAudio on the Internet. Over 10,000 people have read previous editions of this book. As a result, I have received over 6,000 letters, E-mails, and telephone calls from pastors, ministerial students, and “lay” people testifying that their faith in the Bible was strengthened by the information contained herein. This 5th edition of Divinely Inspired – Inerrantly Preserved is offered with the expectant prayer that your faith in the Bible likewise be strengthened.
