There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t get to explain various Bible translations to one of my customers. It is a very enjoyable part of my job. Yesterday I met with my B&H Publishing Group rep and one of the first books he showed me was Which Bible Translation Should I Use? edited by Andreas Köstenberger and David A. Croteau. The book will feature four different scholars who will “make a case for the Bible translation he represents.” Representing the NIV 2011 is Douglas Moo, for the ESV is Wayne Grudem, for the HCSB is Ray Clendenen and for the NLT is Philip Comfort. This is really an excellent lineup of scholars for their respective translations. I always encourage my customers to not limit themselves to only one translation but to use multiple translations in their studies.
Which Bible Translation Should I Use? is from B&H Publishing Group. It will be a paperback with 272 pages and sell for $14.99. Watch for it this September or October.
