Overview

First, please evaluate us at the bookstore of purchase. Moreover, please be generous in that evaluation, in that, the writers are primarily undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students seeking to help educate others about God’s Word.

Here at Bible Translation Magazine (BTM) we are hard at work for all individuals interested in the Bible translation process, from the person who has just purchased his first Bible, to the professional translator. The main purpose of the Bible-Translation.Net magazine is education. It is a place for those who are sincerely interested in the importance of the translation process, as well as which translation(s) would be the most beneficial to use. The translation of God's Word from the original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek is a task unlike any other and should never be taken lightly, because it carries with it the heaviest responsibility: the translator renders God's thoughts into a modern language.
Therefore, the goal of BTNM is to be a help to all. There have been technical journals and magazines on the market for decades. Generally, scholars have published these journals for others scholars. Therefore, we are taking difficult and complex subjects and making them easy to understand. We wanted to create a magazine that would communicate as clearly and powerfully as possible to all of today’s readers. The resulting effort is a magazine that is easy to read and understand, while also accurately communicating information about the Bible. In fact, children will be able to read our magazine and understand it. This is not to say that it is for children as such, it is for both adult and young ones. In addition, our magazine will be beneficial for those who struggle to understand when they read. We hope this magazine will be just right for you. As each succeeding issue of our magazine comes out, it will be more reflective of the above goals.

It is a daunting task for the new Bible student to walk into a store looking to purchase a Bible. Immediately, he is met with shelves upon shelves of more than 100 different English translation choices: NIV, TNIV, ESV, NASB, NRSV, CEV, HCSB, NLT, TEV, NET and on and on. He is even further bewildered when he realizes that there are different formats within each translation: a reference Bible, a study Bible, a life application Bible, an archaeology Bible, as well as many more, or just the standard format. He further notices that some translations claim to be Essentially Literal, while others claim to be Dynamic Equivalent (thought for thought), which has only served to increased his confusion.

This magazine looks to be a promising scholarly resource for the arm-chair Bible translators and genuine Bible readers alike! As I write this review I note that the March issue is also out, I look forward to catching up on those articles as well. I hope this same quality is maintained throughtout the life of the magazine! Kudos!

I read the January edition too, and felt it had much to offer, with its great variety of articles. I found the articles in this edition to be well written, informative, and easy to understand. I like the great variety of articles. I look forward to the next edition.

The magazine has a variety of articles. The thing that I liked most is they they were written for the regular folk. Also, most magazines do not have a hundred pages of articles, so you are really getting your money's worth. I am looking forward to the next issue.
