"Les Garrett's books on the Bible are very valuable. The Concordance in Which Bible is a great resource of information on the changes and deletions in the Bible. Also, the teaching video I cannot fault and recommend it highly. We now carry Les Garrett's materials in our AV publications catalogue and recommend them all."
