Edward Freer Hills


Edward Freer Hills, (1912–1981) at the age of 39 committed himself to approach the issue of textual criticism from the “logic of faith”. He was led to this view from a study of Dean Burgon’s work. A great scholar, Dr. Hills earned degrees from Yale, Westminster Theological Seminary, Columbia, and Harvard. He writes:

“The King James Version ought to be regarded not merely as a translation of the Textus Receptus but also as an independent variety of the Textus Receptus.”
