Item description for Choosing a Bible Translation by John J. Pilch...

Overview
"Which Bible translation is the best to use or to buy?" "Which does the Church recommend?" In Choosing a Bible Translation, John Pilch discusses two kinds of Bible translations: word-for-word (literal or formal correspondence), and meaning-for-meaning (literary or dynamic equivalence) and comments on the merits of each for the needs of Bible readers. Pilch also emphasizes some challenges that translators of the biblical texts face such as the use of inclusive language, social systems, textual variants, and sensitivity to cultural awareness. He provides readers with a host of resources for choosing Bibles on computer software, obtaining electronic copies of translations, and for locating translations on the Internet.

Reviews - What do customers think about Choosing a Bible Translation?

Very Brief, Very Sketchy  Aug 28, 2003
Pilch's booklet on Bible translations is nothing more than a brief, cursory look at this intriguing subject, with some sketchy reviews of individual translations, done with a Roman Catholic perspective. For someone who is more in-depth with the subject, I'd suggest other references. For a beginner, this book covers the subject very nicely.
