Choosing a Bible (For Worship, Teaching, Study, Preaching, and Prayer) by Donald Kraus
How do we choose among all the different Bible translations available today? How do we know which is the right one to use for specific situations? And how do we understand what factors lie behind these translations?
Oxford Bible editor Donald Kraus surveys 25 different Bible translations, and discusses general principles of translation, specific illustrations of difficult texts, the range of translation choices available, and the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches.
