Book Review

Look What's Missing by David W. Daniels

The premise of this book is to "prove" to the reader that the King James Version of the Bible is the only true version and all others are influenced by Satan.

The author goes on to "prove" his point by using references like the following:

The King James Version of Matthew 17:22 reads "And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:".

The New International Version removes Jesus's name from the text. And technically the author is correct, but he doesn't mention that they replaced "Jesus" with "he". Here is the NIV reading of Matthew 17:22:

"When they came together in Galilee, he said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men."

Now you tell me, does removing Jesus's name and using a pronoun make the NIV blasphemous?

Furthermore, the author doesn't really give any substantiation to what makes the King James Version of the Bible the best, other than it isn't the 40 or so other Bibles he reviewed. Most of the other books the author references to help prove his point are his own.

Therefore, this is one book and probably author you can completely avoid.
