Author: Leland Ryken
Description: "Dynamic equivalence" vs. "essentially literal" translations---the debate has raged since the mid-20th century. An English professor at Wheaton College, Ryken reveals the history behind contemporary English translations; examines common fallacies; and probes the theological, ethical, and hermeneutical issues with modern interpretations.

Along with a short history of translation, Ryken evaluates presuppositions that impact translation theory. He also examines fallacies about the Bible, translations in general, and Bible readers that influence what translation decisions are made. Believing that those who undertake the serious work of translating Gods Word have an obligation both to God and to others, he assesses the theological, ethical, and hermeneutical issues involved and surveys difficulties with modern translations. Rykens literary expertise gives him the perspective needed to provide Christians with a standard for comparing contemporary Bible translations, as well as an understanding of why some translations may not convey the very words of God.
