When making reference to religious scripture within the body of this book, the reference may be paraphrased or referenced by topic. When making a reference to scripture, usually the book name and verse numbers are noted below the related paragraph or paragraphs. On occasion, reference to scripture chapter and verse numbers are made in the body of the paragraph. Generally, when a paragraph has more than one reference, all references noted are at the end of the paragraph. This is apparent when you see a page. (i.e. John 3:16-18)
By all means, use any version of the Protestant Christian Bible you want as your reference volume. The references are clear. Many translations of the Bible exist. The subtleties of language in each can often give different insight. Many translations can be understood easier than others.
The King James Version of the Bible is the only translation quoted in this book. All quotations are direct, word for word quotations, or paraphrases of that translation. If the text has been paraphrased it is noted in the reference.
I consider a personal study of the Bible to be very important. The Bible is, to many people, a historical document, the record of God's dealings with man, and a private devotional. A personal knowledge and study of the Bible, is one of the surest ways, to test what others say, about the Bible and its contents. There aren't many substitutes, for personal reading, in learning what the Bible says.
Depending on context, the noun man, and the pronoun he, may mean any person, regardless of gender. Any beliefs or conclusions contained in this book are the author's.
