    I had heard that some translations were corrupt, so decided to find a non-bias source to consult. This book is just what I was looking for. The book doesn't recommend any one translation and it gives a brief history of all English translations as well as a background on what translators are confronted with. I have eleven (11) different English translations, from Tyndale's NT to the NIV, And find there are no real differences. I find it rather sad that those who are bias toward one translation over another are going against 2 Timothy 2:14 and are missing the beauty and the message of God's word the Bible, they really need to read this book.

    This is a book I bought for myself and for others. The chapters on modern translations and how they developed, espcially the pharaphased versions was extremely fascinating and informative. I think you need to know about various version, especially the differences between the Formal equivalence and the Dynamic equivalence. The book doesn't really recommend one version over the other but gives you a ton of information to make your own educated choice. Most people will have more then one translation of the Bible, but again the information in this book will help you understand what the purpose of the particular translation was meant to be. I think this is a kind of book you must have in your personal library because you will find yourself refering to it regularly. Its a great book! I highly recommend it!

    Ostensibly this book is a "guide" to the use of bible versions, but in fact it serves mainly to promote the "dynamic equivalence" versions, and leaves the reader with no clear idea of the disadvantages of using such versions.

    I loaded this on my computer and little Mp-3 thingy. With each chapter as a separate track, finding and following the thought is easier. Since this is a 'modern vernacular interpolation' the thought comes across in an understandable way, although I would not call it a 'definitive translation' it is thought provoking and understandable, well worth a read or in this case a listen! Great Job!!!
