BW3 on choosing a Bible translation
I noticed that Ben Witherington has made available a lecture on choosing a Bible translation on his blog:
Listen and enjoy. And let me know what he says. Very few of us in the the 2/3rds world can do things like listen to audio and video podcasts.
Update 1: I apologize for my pathetic whining (see above).
Update 2: Thanks to my whining, however, Nathan Stitt provided a rundown on the video at his blog: Ben Witherington On Translations
Update 3: Apparently according to comments on Nathan's blog Ben is calling NKJV, NRSV and RSV "idiomatic translations." That's funny since Ben is an excellent writer of idiomatic English yet he doesn't sound anything like those translations. ;-)
Update 4: Um, duh. I didn't see Suzanne's rundown so I'm checking that out now...
