The explosive growth in new Bible translations has given new concerns to people when they buy a Bible. If scholars disagree on how to translate the original languages how are you to judge? There is now a huge increase in responsibility placed in the hands of the bookstore and consumer. How do you decide which version to use, or when to use it? Robert Thomas helps us find a pathway - he teaches us the principles we need to know in order to assess the problems and strengths of the many Bible versions that are available today and decide their suitability for the tasks we want to use them for.
Buying a Bible was simple years ago when the choices were basically the size of the print, the colour of the cover, and the type of binding. Now you find aisles of choice!
The author, himself a participant in Bible translation, provides guidelines in five areas: historical backgrounds of English translations, textual bases, methodological techniques, theological biases, and varieties of English used.
This is a great resource for the layperson, student, pastor, or teacher.
Subtitled 'Making sense of the proliferation of translations' this lucidly written book is a useful guide through the labyrinth of texts, translation philosophies, theological bias and other factors that bear on translating the Bible... practical in purpose and very easily read.
Thomas has done us all a favor by penning a simple and readable guide.
"Scholarly and yet extremely practical"
