Omtale The Complete Guide to Bible Translations
Given the wealth of English translations of the Bible available today, how can anyone know which is the right one for them? The options seem overwhelming. Biblical scholar Ron Rhodes provides an easy-to-read guide that takes the guesswork out of choosing a Bible. He critiques the prominent theories of translation, lets readers in on the debate about gender-inclusive language, and thoroughly covers the major English translations from the "King James Version" to the "New Living Translation" and everything in between, including the two most recent Bibles for Catholics. His examination of each version includes; the story behind the translation; the translation theory used; the intended readership; pluses and minuses; and, comparisons with other translations. A unique feature is Rhodes' look at secondary factors to keep in mind when choosing a Bible, such as the type size, the quality of the paper, the existence and placement of cross references and other study helps, and the types of bindings. The result is an indispensable guide to help readers through the maze of choosing the translation best suited for them.
