How to Choose a Translation
A Guide to Understanding and Using Bible Versions
by Gordon D.Fee and Mark L.Strauss
Publisher:Zondervan from Trust Media Distribution
As a Bookseller it is always a challenge when a customer asks to purchase a Bible without any particular version in mind, because to fully appreciate the Word of God, the user must have the right version for their needs. This book takes a huge step towards not only pointing the reader in the right direction, but also explaining how the different versions are right for different purposes. A newcomer will require one, an academic another. It is also informative and fascinating to discover how translators approach their work, and how they do bear the reader in mind.
