A recent exchange concerning a new translation containing the restored Birth Name of our Savior. I had written to the Publisher of this new production based on the Authorized King James Bible, the Proper Names Bible, published by Name Publishers LLC. The following is their response to my request for more information about their published work and about those responsible for it. They did not specify any particular editor or editors the publisher is identified as Dr. Kerby Fannin. What follows is their response to my request for more information.
Peace, your servant, Dan
Dear Servant Dan,
Of those that object to restoring the understanding of the name of the Messiah and to making the true Word of God more readable and easier for many more people to understand, we are reminded of Paul's advice to Timothy:
1 Timothy 6:20-21, O Timothy, keep that which is committed to your trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.
And in another response:
>> Dear Servant Dan,
>> We are thankful that you are finding the /Proper Name Version of the
>> King James Bible, Study Edition of value and look forward to a
>> positive review from you.
>> It is important to remember that is not a new translation of the
>> Bible. This is a faithful adaption of the Authorized King James
>> Version/ in which the name of God has been restored and the language
>> has been substantially updated. As such, we have received the
>> following permission:
