There are an estimated 900+ translations of the English Bible in existence today! While many feel that this is an extreme excess since it’s virtually impossible for the average person to read 900 different translations, many others feel it builds on our understanding of Bible translation and strengthens our ability to continue producing solid mainstream Bible translations for generations to come as the English language continues to change.
In this critique I want to address three primary points:
- Is there only one only good translation of the English Bible?
- The challenges of Bible translation.
- Suggested Bible translations.
The following is my perspective on-bible-translations.
