Excerpt from Notes on the Amended English Bible: With Special Reference to Certain Texts in The; Revised Version of the Old and New Testaments Bearing Upon the Principles of Unitarian ChristianityWe have happily now an amended English Bible. One has only to remember how the Scriptures in the Authorized Version were commonly talked about not many years ago, to appreciate the importance of this fact. The strongest charge that used to be made in disparagement of those who protested against corrupt texts and incorrect translations of the Bible, was that they were tampering with the Word of God. It is now admitted that the old Version needed correcting, and that the plea urged by Unitarians for a purer Scripture was not made without solid, reasonable grounds. There is still ample room for further amendment; and when the time for it comes, as it certainly must before very long, the work already done will render it easier to make a more thorough revision upon simple critical and scholarly principles; but there is no good reason in the meanwhile for any hesitation to adopt for public use the Version now completed. It is clearly upon the whole a great improvement on the older work, so far as it goes, and the more it is studied and used, the more will it be felt to go a long way towards what is really wanted.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
