It helped to answer the questions that I had about how and who translated the Holy Bible from Greek and Hebrew and Aramaic to English. It also helped me to better understand the popular English translations since the KJV.

I was blown away by its easy readability, concise detail of translation issues yet in-depth coverage of such a complicated topic! If only it were possible to give this gem 10 stars!
Ernest Low5 Stars Out Of 5May 1, 2008Ernest LowI wish this came out in the early days when I was a Christian. I was bewildered where translations can be so different and why the NIV had a large passage that was missing when compared to the KJV. (Although this was not dealt with specifically in this book.)I strongly all Christians to read this book to better understand the difficulties English Bible translators have to deal with. To me it is a thankless task where one will always be opened to criticism because of disagreements of the translation. For those who are concerned about TNIV, you should read this as well as debates on this translation found on the web. You will realise that the TNIV is not gender inclusive - God is still 'He'. Read the Gender and Accuracy chapter for a better understanding of the issues at hand. The conclusion would be to have a few versions to be used as no one version is perfect.
