Reviews - What do customers think about Choosing a Bible: For Worship, Teaching, Study, Preaching, and Prayer?

A Great Find!  Jun 15, 2007
Although the book is only 96 pages long, it is packed with information; not one line is wasted on unnecessary banter. It's easy to comprehend, and very engaging for those of us who enjoy using several bible versions for study. It compares twenty-four bible versions, includes versions which contain the apocrypha, explains each version's target audience, explains the variation of language across the versions, Why some are easier to read than others, and much more. I originally borrowed it from my local library, and quickly decided it was a must-have on my bookshelf! I strongly recommend this book for everyone who is interested in The Bible.
 
Recommended for anyone facing the conundrum of which translation of the Bible to acquire.  Feb 3, 2007
Author Donald Kraus offers a condensed survey of his 20 years of experience professionally assessing, publishing, describing, and defending different Bible translations for readers of all backgrounds in Choosing a Bible: For Worship, Teaching, Study, Preaching, and Prayer. Covering twenty-five different Bible translations, from the Everett Fox translation of the Pentateuch and the KJV to the Moffatt Bible and The Message, Choosing a Bible discusses issues of source and target languages, original and contemporary audiences, and gives a quick guide to the defining characteristics of each translation. Choosing a Bible is an overview designed to help lay readers answer the question "Which Bible should I buy?" and does not go into extreme depth, but its list of recommended further reading will certainly point the curious in the right direction for advanced scholarly studies in Biblical translation. Recommended for anyone facing the conundrum of which translation of the Bible to acquire.
