How do we choose among all the different Bible translations available today? How do we know which is the right one to use for specific situations? And how do we understand what factors lie behind these translations?

Oxford Bible editor Donald Kraus surveys 25 different Bible translations, and discusses general principles of translation, specific illustrations of difficult texts, the range of translation choices available, and the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches


Donald Kraus is executive editor for Bibles at Oxford University Press, where he has been professionally involved with assessing, publishing, describing and defending different Bible translations for over 20 years. A lifelong Episcopalian, he is a member of St. Paul's-on-the-Green in Norwalk, Connecticut.
