Product Description

In an age when there is a wide choice of English Bible translations, the issues involved in Bible translating are steadily gaining interest. Consumers often wonder what separates one Bible version from another.
The contributors to this book argue that there are significant differences between literal translations and the alternatives. The task of those who employ an essentially literal Bible translation philosophy is to produce a translation that remains faithful to the original languages, preserving as much of the original form and meaning as possible while still communicating effectively and clearly in the receptors' languages.
Translating Truth advocates essentially literal Bible translation and purposes to foster an edifying dialogue concerning translation philosophy. It addresses what constitutes "good" translation, common myths about word-for-word translations, and the importance of preserving the authenticity of the Bible text. The essays in this book offer clear and enlightening insights into the foundational ideas of essentially literal Bible translation.

With a discussion format, Translating Truth helps greatly with one of today’s problems: wading through all the Bible versions which continue to be produced, and deciding which ones are best. The publisher introduces the theme by saying, “The words of the Bible are the very words of God, and so the work of translating these words is of utmost importance, with eternal consequences.” (page 7)
The translations are divided into three categories: (1) word-for-word or essentially literal; (2) thought-for-thought or dynamic equivalent; (3) exposition-for-text or expanded paraphrase. Firmly on the side of essentially literal, several authors consider why this is best discussing such themes as: are only some words of Scripture breathed by God; what readers want and what translators can give; considering different types of translators; truth and fullness of meaning; revelation versus rhetoric. The essayists include theology professors, Christian authors, and Christian historians. More than 20 translations are referred to within. Several chapters end with helpful bibliographies. Closing materials include a general index and a Scripture index.
Translating Truth is an interesting book which whets the appetite for more information on this subject. It engenders thought, debate, and a desire to read and learn from the Bible. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
