Sulu4 Stars Out Of 5Very good bookJanuary 24, 2019SuluQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4While I agree with reviewer #1 about the NIV issue, OTOH, this book does discuss the various problems with the NIV, GNB (Good News, Contemporary English) strains that I think the objection of it is moot as they also show how (KJV, RSV,NRSV, NASB,) handle the same issues. The book does not TELL you wake to get, it opens your mind on what you are getting and whether that is what you want. i would recommend this a person wanting to make an intelligent choice.
orions-belt@Comcast.net1 Stars Out Of 5AUTHOR, MARK STRAUSS, PhD, IS COMPLETELY BIASED & WILL "PUSH" THE NIV BIBLE BECAUSE HE TRANSLATED IT!!May 7, 2017orions-belt@Comcast.netQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1One of the two authors of this book about selecting a translation is not really qualified to fairly and unbiasedly present a neutral presentation regarding the various translations that are currently available today and what their actual true strengths are before the Lord, as he has personally invested a major part of his own life in working on the actual Biblical Translation of the New International Version of the Bible! Further, the very way that he has chosen to list his credentials, he has deliberately concealed this fact from everyone's awareness!
He will certainly push the NIV version of the Bible at the expense of other better versions, due to THIS.

Alan SmiddyBenton, KYAge: 55-65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5June 5, 2008Alan SmiddyBenton, KYAge: 55-65Gender: MaleMy wish would be that every Christian read this book, barring that at least every Minister and Pastor. 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!
