About the Author

Robert L. Thomas is Professor of New Testament at The Master's Seminary, Sun Valley, California.


Thomas has done us all a favor by penning a simple and readable guide.

-- David W. Hegg

... a book which every pastor and Bible teacher ought to keep for reference. There will be times when it is necessary to offer guidance to others, as well as to choose for oneself, and no other book is as clear and as useful as this one in helping us to decide which version to choose.

-- Churchman Journal

Subtitled 'Making sense of the proliferation of translations' this lucidly written book is a useful guide through the labyrinth of texts, translation philosophies, theological bias and other factors that bear on translating the Bible... practical in purpose and very easily read.

-- The Banner of Truth

"Scholarly and yet extremely practical"

-- John MacArthur, Pastor/Teacher, author and broadcaster

Buying a Bible was simple years ago when the choices were basically the size of the print, the colour of the cover, and the type of binding. Now you find aisles of choice!
The author, himself a participant in Bible translation, provides guidelines in five areas: historical backgrounds of English translations, textual bases, methodological techniques, theological biases, and varieties of English used.
This is a great resource for the layperson, student, pastor, or teacher.

-- Moody Magazine
