Foreword

The world has never seen a greater attack on the true word of God than the concentrated attack we witness today. The multitude of so-called bible versions has caused many Christians, pastors, churches, colleges, and seminaries to depart from the truth. Thankfully, God has raised up some godly men in these last days to shine the light of truth upon the spiritual darkness. Dr. Doug Stauffer is one of these men for such a time as this.

One Book Stands Alone encourages believers to stand by the one and only inspired book of God, the King James Bible. To prove there is only one Bible is a gigantic victory for the true Bible believers. Dr. Stauffer clearly repudiates the modern versions whose main purpose seems to be to deceive and divide. This book attests to the fact that the Bible is what God has said through inspiration, and not a book or version produced by man.

The acceptance of the corrupt versions by many seminaries and colleges has had detrimental effects on Christianity. The modern versions attack many important doctrines in God’s word. The author deals with these spurious and corrupt versions by clearly proving that Westcott and Hort greatly influenced all of them. Dr. Stauffer, in a scholarly and biblical fashion, provides an answer for those who tamper with the word of God.

One Book Stands Alone shows how the departure from the Masoretic Text and the Textus Receptus has demonstrably caused confusion and heresies. The results have been far reaching. Many Christians have even begun to accept the degenerate lifestyles of those condemned by the scriptures. For instance, the word of God clearly condemns homosexuality and sodomy; however, the changes made in the modern versions have obscured God’s condemnation.

The chapter entitled “Bible Roots” is worth more than words can express. The author clearly reveals how we can know that our King James Bible is the pure, preserved word of God for the English-speaking people.

Thankfully, my mother placed a King James Bible in my hands in August of 1935. I have never known anything else in my 72 years of preaching. I expect to use One Book Stands Alone as a textbook in Midwestern Baptist College and Midwestern Baptist Bible Seminary.
