. I am convinced that Obama has a big role in end-time prophecy.
His name actually means "lightening from the sky" or something along those lines.
You know the reference of Lucifer being cast down to earth as lightening comes down from the sky? ...
It's much easier to read the modern english because that's what we speak in today's world. I don't get how the old version with virtually unused language (old english) is at a 5th grade level when the NKJV of modern english is read with so much ease and understanding. And why do you think it's called the "NEW King James Version"? Because it was translated from the Authorized King James Version with very minor changes where needed for translation correction.
The author is detailed and specific - nothing vague or nebulous about his approach. The Greek original is shown (in "interlinear" English), and the 9 are lined up for comparison. The criteria and conclusions are explained in detail, in layman's terminology that is easy to follow (in just a very few places the book lapses into technical jargon that I had to struggle with). The author must be credited with bringing us non-Greek-speaking Bible adherents one step closer to the Greek manuscripts upon which all modern New Testament translations are based. The 9 translations discussed are the King James (or Authorized Version), the Amplified Bible, the Living Bible, the New American Bible, the New American Standard Bible, the New International Version, the New Revised Standard Version, the New World Translation, and Today's English Version. The verses chosen for analysis are so clearly explained that any translation could be tested, so the book will be of equal benefit to those who might favor another less popular translation.
