Three Levels of Adherents to the KJV Bible

Back in 2018 I wrote about Categorizing “KJV-Only” beliefs and My View of King James Only. Saturday I found a book that categorizes the views differently than most lists I have seen. The Journey from Texts to Translations: The Origin and Development of the Bible, by Paul D. Wegner (page 337), gives three levels of adherents to the King James Version Bible.
1. Those who prefer its majesty and reverence, being most familiar with this Bible or having used it for much of their lives.
2. Those who believe that the text is to be preferred.
3. Those who believe that it is the only authoritative text and that it has been preserved by God through the ages.
