Description: In this booklet, adapted from his book The Word of God in English, Leland Ryken examines the principles that make for reliable English Bible translation and looks at common translation fallacies. Asserting that Bible translations should be essentially literal, he puts forward a standard by which Christians can evaluate and compare contemporary Bible translations.
