Reviews - What do customers think about German/English Parallel Bible ((Luther-ESV), Dark Red)?
GREAT German English Bible Dec 21, 2009
As a gift for a christian friend learning German this was just the inspiration they needed and the ESV is one of my favorite English translations.
Best of Both Worlds Dec 6, 2009
The 1984 revised Luther Bible is *the* classic, orthodox translation in the German language, while the 2001 English Standard Version is the best English translation available. Couple the two together and you have a real winning tool for those who need quick access to both languages, especially for purposes of comparison.
Both translations are faithful to the original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts, following the principle of formal equivalence in translation. Therefore, within the limits found in any translation, you can be confident as you read either the Luther Bible or the ESV that you are truly seeing the original text as it is.
wunderbar! Jul 12, 2009
This book is exactly what I was looking for and more. I took German in college but have forgotten most of it. I have always loved the German language and wanted to get back into it. I currently read the Bible everday, so this was the best of both worlds. The text is very easy to understand, and it is great to have the English text immediately adjacent to the German for comparison.
Great Pages--Terrible Binding Jun 11, 2009
The person who said this book is put together well will be in for a big surprise if he uses it very much. The binding is cloth-textured paper and the pages are merely glued in--although this short-cut is cleverly concealed. In short, the book is not permanent and will not bear much usage.
That BIG complaint aside, this book is exactly what I was hoping it would be. I have no complaint at all about the text or the pages. Since most who order this book are seeking to improve either their English or German, they should not mind the skimpy textual and other notes being added as an appendix.
I really wanted to love and USE this parallel Bible, but the binding is much too flimsy for the latter. I see now that I should have waited until a better binding (with sewn-in pages) was available. Perhaps I got some sort of book-club edition with a poor binding--and the other reviewers got something different and better. If so, that is my bad luck--and I remove all my negative statements and change my rating to five stars. All I know is that with the book I have, the boards will very soon crease and eventually tear at the folds, and the pages will soon be falling out if I use this book as I intended.
Ausgezeichnet! May 17, 2009
I'm learning German and this is an excellent book for my studies. Easy to read and the english translation is almost word for word. Use this bible to expand your mind and save your soul at the same time.
