400 years on from the publication of the King James Version of the Bible, there is now a proliferation of translations available. Some Christians maintain that the KJV has never been surpassed for its style, authority and reliability.

James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries disputes the idea that the King James Version is the "only and best" version Christians should read. He says that there are translation problems as well as serious issues regarding the manuscripts the translators based it upon.

Revd Kyle Paisley, son of DUP leader Ian Paisley, defends the KJV as the best English version, despite any faults. He says that modern versions downplay key doctrines of the Christian faith and fail to live up to the prose of the KJV.
