    While 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.

    AUTHOR, MARK STRAUSS, PhD, IS COMPLETELY BIASED & WILL "PUSH" THE NIV BIBLE BECAUSE HE TRANSLATED IT!!

    One 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.

    This book breaks down the writing style, the intent of the author of several books and how to understand what written in the Bible as the communication style is different that what we are used to today. Get this book if you want to lead a Bible Study, teach the Bible, or do a devotional.... This is will help you so much!

    I was very pleased with this book. 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.

    My 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!
