Overview

Which translation do I choose?

In an age when there is a wide choice of English Bible translations, the issues involved in Bible translating are steadily gaining interest. Consumers often wonder what separates one Bible version from another.

The contributors to this book argue that there are significant differences between literal translations and the alternatives. The task of those who employ an essentially literal Bible translation philosophy is to produce a translation that remains faithful to the original languages, preserving as much of the original form and meaning as possible while still communicating effectively and clearly in the receptors' languages.

Translating Truth advocates essentially literal Bible translation and in an attempt to foster an edifying dialogue concerning translation philosophy. It addresses what constitutes "good" translation, common myths about word-for-word translations, and the importance of preserving the authenticity of the Bible text. The essays in this book offer clear and enlightening insights into the foundational ideas of essentially literal Bible translation.

    Great beginning! I know most people will say that about any story, but I'm being a critic here. It sets the base for an awesome story!

    Parallel~Chapter One (The Discovery)

    You know that feeling when you're so bored you want to scream? Okay, maybe you don't. <br> Well, that's exactly what Drew was feeling. <br> "Ugh, there's nothing to do," Drew complained. She threw her sixth book that morning onto the couch and stood up again. <br> "We could go swimming," her twin sister Adrielle suggested. <br> Drew sighed. "No, it's too far to walk on a day like this."<br> Adrielle started listing things they would normally do. "Amy and Tressa are at camp, pool's too far, library's closed, roller rink's closed for renovation, practically every movie in this house has been watched..." <br> "Are Doctor Who or Sherlock being aired anytime soon?" <br> "Doctor Who's on hiatus until August, remember? And Sherlock isn't getting any more episodes for two years." Adrielle sat down at her laptop. "I'm going to scour youtube for anything Starkid we haven't seen." <br> Drew strode over to the kitched and grabbed a third popsicle. "I told you, I've already looked five times." <br> Adrielle facepalmed. "Oh, why didn't I think of this 27 seconds ago?" <br> "Think of what?" Drew asked. She jumped down on the couch again. <br> "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?" Adrielle questioned. <br> "Totally. On three!"<br> "One..."<br> "Two..."<br> "Three!" <br> The twins immediately burst into song. "There once was a boy named Harry, destined to be a star. His parents were killed by Voldemort, who gave him his lightning scar..." They proceeded to sing Harry Potter in 99 Seconds, then broke off laughing and gasping for breath. <br> "That was COMPLETELY random," Drew said after she stopped laughing. "But really, what were you thinking of?" <br> "Water balloons!" Adrielle grinned mischeivously. <br> Drew smiled. "I'm going to draw a pink sharpie mustache on Jason's face. Be back in a minute." Drew pulled a sharpie out of her pocket and crept upstairs into her brother's room. She uncapped the sharpie and found Jason snoring on his desk in front of an open laptop, then proceeded to lean over and ink a ridiculously curly mustache on her brother's face. Drew then slowly backed out of the room. <br> Of course, carmen chose that exact moment to emerge from her room. "What are you doing?" <br> Drew smiled and her other twin sister and said, "You'll see when he wakes up." Carmen rolled her eyes and followed Drew downstairs. <br> Drew picked up her laptop off the couch. "I guess I'll just write stories if I have nothing better to do." <br> "But what about the water balloons?" Adrielle asked with a pouty face. <br> Drew typed in her password and hit the enter key. "Maybe later, Elle. When it's hotter outside." <br> "Fine." <br> Drew opened her word processor and thought for a second. "Harry Potter, the next generation." Drew typed in the title. 'I so wish Harry Potter was real,' she thought. 'If I were a witch...' <br> Suddenly, Drew saw a bright white light. "Elle? What's that?" Adrielle apparently didn't hear her. "Carmen? What is going on?" Carmen didn't seem to notice that she was speaking. "Adrielle? CARMEN!" <br> The light suddenly grew blinding. Drew attempted to sheild her eyes but couldn't move. She found herself walking on a white bridge, then ran forward. She was quickly surrounded by a dark forest. <br> A woman stood in the din wearing a cloak. She then said, "I am Seer of the Night. Call me Seer. Welcome, Drew, to the Between." <p> Hey guys! I hope you like my story so far. I worked really hard! Thanks, and don't forget to comment! -Kelsey
