Sam, a commentator on this blog, dropped this link yesterday – though y’all might find it interesting:
What are the differences between Bible translations? How should one choose a translation? How do you know if a translation is accurate? Leland Ryken’s new book, Understanding the English Bible Translation: The Case for an Essentially Literal Approach hit the Crossway warehouse on the same day that Fox News and USA Today featured articles on Bible translations and revisions.

Leland Ryken agreed to answer a few timely questions for us on the blog this week. Join us here tomorrow for his Q&A.
