    This is a fabulous book. Most of the essays are well worth your time. It is divided into 3 sections:
    The Theory of Bible Translation
    The History of Bible Translation
    The Practice of Bible Translation

    I particularly appreciated the articles by Don Carson and Mark Strauss, in which they interact with criticism of the TNIV, the updated version of the NIV. I like the way that both authors discuss the gender language debate and provide us with useful updates to what they had to say in their helpful books on the subject.

    Silva's article "Are Translators Traitors?" explains the difficulty of transmitting the nuances of one language into another, even when you are bilingual.

    Those who are dismissive of the NIV and the later TNIV need to absorb what these writers tell us. They show how all versions interpret, including so-called literal versions. They also help us to step back from our immersion in the language of the KJV and think about how God's Word should be communicated in the 21st century.
