Some time ago I wrote a review on Amazon of Dr. H. D. Williams’ book, Word-for-Word Translating of the Received Texts. (You can find the book on Amazon by searching the title, not the author.) Now Dr. Williams has responded on the Bible for Today and Dean Burgon Society websites. Read it all at at: www.biblefortoday.org/Articles/response.htm I’m surprised. I didn’t expect that Dr. Williams would think I’m worth the effort. From his response to my little review I know that he thinks I’m a poor linguist if I am one at all, I’m under-educated, I waste my time on Internet blogs, etc. (I intend to answer no personal attacks, nor do I intend to give my resume here. I’m not applying for a job.) Yet he spends 1177 words of effort answering my 592 words! Folks, that’s almost twice the words I used—word for word! So judging by Dr. Williams’ response, my little review hit an exposed nerve, or maybe several of them. At any rate, a Greek scholar friend of mine tells me I really should answer this by Dr. Williams, so at his urging I will do so here on the BB. I’ll first give Williams' response to my Amazon review as a quote, then I’ll give my comments.
