    Archaic Words and the Authorized Version

Laurence M. Vance
Published by Vance Publications ()

As suitable for reading as it is valuable for reference, this book provides an explicit and comprehensive examination of every word in the Authorized Version of the Bible that has been deemed archaic, obsolete, antiquated, or otherwise outmoded. The result is both a fascinating and encyclopedic study of words--their meaning, derivation, usage, and significance.

The thesis of this seminal work is that the Authorized Version is no more archaic than daily newspapers, current magazines, and modern Bible versions. To further supplement the work and substantiate the underlying thesis, considerable reference is made not only to a wide variety of newspapers and magazines, but also to four contemporary Bible versions.

This book is unique in that it seeks neither to criticize nor correct the text of the Authorized Version. Extensively documented with over 5,300 footnotes, the book contains twenty-four chapters and twelve appendixes, with a preface, introduction, epilogue, and bibliography.
