It is a daunting task for the new Bible student to walk into a store for the purpose of purchasing a Bible. Immediately, he is met with shelves upon shelves of more than 100 different English translation choices: AMP, AT, ASV, BLE, CEB, CEV, ERV, ESV, HCSB, IB, ISV, JB, KJ21, LB, MLB, NAB, NASB, NCV, NEB, NET, NJB, NIV, NIVI, NIRV, NKJV, NLT, NLV, NRSV, REB, RSV, RVB, SEB, TEV, TNIV, WE and on and on. He is even further bewildered when he realizes that, in addition to the standard format, there are different formats within each translation: a reference Bible, a study Bible, a life application Bible, an archaeology Bible. He further notices that some translations claim to be Essentially Literal, while others claim to be Dynamic Equivalent (thought for thought), which only serves to increase his confusion.

The goal of THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO BIBLE TRANSLATION is to offer those new to the subject an overview of the history and methods, aims and results of the Bible translation process.

In addition, the reader will gain an appreciation of the work and lifetime efforts of hundreds of Bible scholars over the past 450-years, who have labored, so that we can say that we have many very good translations that are a mirror like reflection of the original, in translation. The reader will also find that he or she has a renewed confidence in the reliability of the Bible. Finally, the reader will be able to determine for himself or herself, which translations are the best for study and research.
