Jehovah the redeemer god: the scriptural interpretation of the divine name Jehovah

This appears a very sound book, but actually clouds the true name of God from the Hebrew as the author himself admits on page 11 where he claims "the more accurate name" is "Yehovah" (which differs greatly in pronunciation), which he merely and arbitrarily then drowns out by the plea of "custom"! Yet also, he admits the vowels are added, for the original is YHWH (as the New American Standard Bible originally showed in readers margins). So do we have a clarification of the "name of God" in this book, or a half-admitted distortion merely justified?
The answer is found in the Hebrew scripture of course for only the original language is the one "inspired of God", for translations do err. The letter J itself is of more recent English invention, for the older english bibles (see Geneva Bible for example) use Iesus for Jesus today, and "Iesus" in the name of the God-man, Christ, actually means in Hebrew "YHWH saves", as does Joshua (pronounced Yeshuah), the leader of Israel after Moses. So even the older English bibles, from Wycliff to Geneva, show that J-ehovah is "inaccurate", and even the name J-esus, for the letter is of modern invention (and questionable useage).
How would you like your name to be pronounced to the hearing of ears? Is it accurate to call John as Yawn instead? To the contrary, alternate spellings are not guilty of distortion so long as they retain, in different languages, the correct PRONUNCIATION of a proper name. For thus we accept Esiah for Isaiah in translation of the Bible, or Jon for John, but never Yawn or Juan for John.
So note now this mark of dishonesty in the original name, which the author admits is important, but then merely dismisses and puts a gloss on--contrary to the third commandment of God, "thou shalt not take the name of the LORD (YHWH) in vain"--i.e. lightly! Then ask yourself why was the name Jehovah then invented, when it is plainly proven to be "inaccurate" by this author, but still pushed as "customary". There must be a motive hidden in this, for no man that honestly researches and writes to unravel and reveal the truth could possibly and admittedly justify doing the opposite.
The King James version of 1611 contained this new invented name of God, and never before. It is also about the same time in history of English language that J was introduced (from no where) and substituted for I (as in Iesus versus Jesus) WHICH ALTERED the pronunciation and spelling of important names and words! Why the innovation in the English alphabet? Why an innovation that brings about mis- or new-pronunciations? The Pilgrims resisted King James as their Persecutor, and used the Geneva Bible exclusively instead of the imposed "Authorized version", favoring that of the Puritans and Reformers of the Genevan.
The true name of God is thus distorted, which is in fact the intent of some who would do so secretly, to confuse God's name for one of their own fashion. Interesting how the author has an "allegory" at the start about Egypt and the modernists attempt to distort the God of the Bible, and claim that Moses copied from Egypt in his god and government, yet he has confused the name of God under the very recent "tradition" (17th century) of Jehovah instead of YHWH--a very subtle way in which to justify the unjustifiable and make it so for common Christian useage!
