Understanding Bible Translation: Excerpt & Endorsement

“This book is full of surprises! Bill Barrick draws upon a lifetime of scholarship to challenge what I thought I knew about Scripture, humble me with gratitude for those who translated my Bible, and inspire me to support the teams who continue this sometimes thrilling, sometimes tedious work. Bill explains the many challenges of faithfully translating the Scriptures into the ever changing language of the people, judiciously compares popular English translations, and gives wise counsel for those God is calling into the field. You may not translate the Bible into Bengali, but this intriguing book will raise your understanding of Scripture, which in turn will give you more to believe. You will not look at your Bible the same way again.” – Mike Wittmer (Ph.D., Calvin Theological Seminary), Professor of Systematic Theology, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, MI
