Description : Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. English Bible Translations challenges our complacency toward the issue of Bible translation by asking the very simple question: “By what standard” are we to judge the authority and reliability of translations of the Bible into modern languages? With clarity and brevity, William Einwechter shows that there are biblical criteria for judging the reliability of English translations. Therefore, the Christian is not at liberty to simply choose one that suits his fancy, and the church cannot be indifferent in the selection of a translation for public use. With the very integrity of God’s Word at stake, the conscientious believer cannot be pro-choice on the issue of Bible translations!

Description : A Guide to Bible Translation offers a broad overview of theory and practice in Scripture translation from ancient times to the present day, with an eye to the future. Its 726 articles by 180 translators, publishing specialists, and scholars are addressed to a global readership of Bible translators, interpreters, students of culture and biblical studies, as well as interested church members and clerical leaders. This unprecedented Guide opens up and celebrates captivating stories of people, languages, and key topics of scholarship involved in over two millennia of Bible translation. Hearing a passage read from the new Gbaya language Bible, my Muslim friend declared with astonishment, "God really does speak our language!" Multiply that response by over 3,000 language communities where worshipers listen attentively to God's Word clearly translated and clearly read. We are grateful to the editors and authors whose life-long dedication to the communication of God's Word and to excellence in scholarship makes this Guide available to us. Thomas G. Christensen, Professor Emeritus Institut Luthérien de Théologie de Meiganga, Cameroun Bible translation has always allowed itself to be stirred and driven, not just by challenges, but also by new knowledge, new technologies, new ideas of presentation, dictates of different geographical locations, and the needs of the target audiences whether these were ecclesiastical, politico-cultural, or ideological in nature. And now through this Guide's easy narrative style, its categorization of topics, and the courage to allow diverse voices and languages to speak into this complex subject, the United Bible Societies has added one more innovative tool into Bible translation work. Professor Margaret Muthwii, Vice Chancellor Pan Africa Christian University, Kenya In the 1990s, translation studies, led by scholars such as Susan Bassnett, André Lefevere, and Mary Snell-Hornby, took the now famous "cultural turn," looking at how institutions of power influenced translation decisions. Right around the same period, Bible translators took the "translation studies turn," looking to translation studies scholars such as James Holmes, José Lambert, Ernst-August Gutt, Lawrence Venuti, and Cristiane Nord, to expand their theoretical base. Such interdisciplinary collaboration, taking place at colloquia around the world, can be seen everywhere in the United Bible Societies' A Guide to Bible Translation, which will appeal to students of Bible translation, translation studies, sacred text translation, the history of translation, and, especially, cultural studies.

Neufeld writes about Bible translations from his knowledge as a student of Biblical languages, and his experience teaching them to laypeople and discussing them on the internet. Many people have questions about translations because they do not understand how translations are produced. Much of the material available is either polarizing, or is provided to advocate a particular version. What's in a Version? strives to provide a basis for lay students to understand how translations are made so they can understand the arguments and become confident of the Bible version they choose to use for reading and study.

Description : The fascinating story of how we got the English Bible in its present form starts 1,120 years ago. HISTORY OF ENGLISH VERSIONS OF THE BIBLE covers the fascinating journey of the Bible from the 9th century AD to the beginning of the 20th-century. The chief translator of the Updated American Standard Version Edward D. Andrews invites readers to explore the process of from the early manuscripts to contemporary translations today. And so, it was that translators like William Tyndale were martyred for the honor of giving the people a Bible that could easily be understood. What a price they had paid, however; it was a priceless gift! Tyndale and others before and after him had worked with the shadow of death towering over their heads. However, by delivering the Bible to many people in their native tongue, they opened up before them the possibility, not of death, but life eternal. As Jesus Christ said in the Tyndale Bible, “This is lyfe eternall that they myght knowe the that only very God and whom thou hast sent Iesus Christ.” (John 17:3) May we, therefore, know the value of what we can now hold in our hands, and may we diligently study God’s Word.

Description : REVIEWING 2013 New World Translation of Jehovah’s Witnesses is going to challenge your objectivity. Being objective means that personal feelings or opinions do not influence you in considering and representing facts. Being subjective means that your understanding is based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or ideas. If the reader finds these insights offense, it might be a little mind control at work from years of being told the same misinformation repeatedly, so ponder things objectively. We can also have preconceived ideas that have been a part of our thinking for so long; we do not question them. Preconceived is an idea or opinion that is formed before having the evidence for its truth. If we are to be effective, we must season our words, so that they are received well. Then there is the term preconception, which means a preconceived idea or prejudice. Seasoned words, honesty, and accuracy are distinctive features of effective apologetic evangelism.

Description : Hundreds of millions accept the Bible as the God-breathed (inspired), fully inerrant Word of God. They struggle in today's world of the atheist, agnostic, and skeptic, to convince others that we have a Creator, and he has inspired a written book, to give direction to imperfect man. Why has there been such a struggle to convince the modern man? Unlike centuries past, many unbelievers today have never read the Bible. Thus, they only have a hazy understanding of what is to be found within its pages, hearing mostly conjecture and innuendo about its content. The modern mind may wonder . . . (1) Why should I read a book that is dated to 2,000 - 3,500 years ago, which has nothing to do with the modern high-tech world that is at the center of my life? (2) What does such an ancient book offer that cannot be found in any modern-day self-help book, or on the Internet? (3) Why am I to believe that the Bible is the Word of God, some of those who have claimed to follow it, have spilled more blood than any military force? (4) Has not the modern historian and scientist proven much of the Bible to be full of historical, geographical and scientific errors? (5) Is the Bible not full of myths and legends, penned by authors that were able to deceive the uneducated people of the past? These questions and hundreds of others are asked on the internet, in magazines, books, movies, TV, as well as newspapers every day. Herein lies your opportunity to get the answers.

Description : This book is about the stark contrast between the Kingdom of God and the economic, political and social systems we live by every day. The world's systems have led us down a primrose path to nowhere, encouraging the pursuit of wealth and the so-called good life while ignoring the need for a morally-based and purpose-driven approach to living. The Kingdom Life Approach provides viable and alternative strategies to how we conduct our lives to achieve true, meaningful prosperity. It establishes a purpose for living that is predicated on individual assignments and an emerging church that true believers in Christ are building. Christians must change and become emissaries and a perfected church in order for Christ's Kingdom to be seen in the earth. How we live and what we pursue in life are transformational values we must demonstrate to the world. Choosing to manage our financial affairs the Kingdom way is central to this process. Willie Thomas Butler is founder and President of Kingdom Seed Foundation and its educational division, The Life Planning Institute. With over twenty years in the financial services profession, Butler has served as a Certified Financial Planner(TM)(1986-2001), Registered Investment Adviser and Financial Consultant with Salomon Smith Barney and Merrill Lynch. He also served in several Christian organizations as a board member, adviser, development officer and fundraiser. Butler authored his first book True Prosperity in 1997 and established LPI to provide an educational curriculum combined with practical training in Biblical Stewardship and money management. LPI offers courses and workshops promoting a Kingdom approach to life planning for those wanting to serve God using every resource entrusted to them. Butler is a graduate of Regent University with a master of arts in public policy and holds a bachelors of science in business management from Adelphi University. He is also a graduate of the Institute for Financial Planning in New York.

Description : What are the churchgoers, the Bible college students, and seminary students to do when one Bible scholar says one thing and another Bible scholar says something quite different, or worse still, several Bible scholars are giving you several different opinions on one particular Bible issue? What makes it even more unsettling is when the Christian is not well informed in that area of study, only having basic knowledge. How can the Christian possibly know which of the Bible scholars are correct? Worse still, the Christian is put in the embarrassing position on social media of telling an atheist or Bible critic one of the scholar’s views, and then the atheist or Bible critic responds to the Christian with, ‘no your evidence is outdated, as recent research points to __________,’ and then they offer another answer that put the Bible in a bad light. What is the Christian to do? What will be accomplished here in this publication is we are going to give the reader much evidence when it comes to the documents of the New Testament, how that evidence impacts our Bible translations and an in-depth look at Bible difficulties as well. This can be used to build your faith, to save someone who may have begun to doubt the trustworthiness of the Bible, and many reading responses that can be used on social media and other forms of your ministry. Andrews is an author of more than 140 books, many of which are a defense of God’s Word.
