This fresh new parallel resource enables readers to easily
compare a quartet of modern translations that span the full range of approaches,
from the most precise and literal to the most dynamic an and reader-friendly.
The NKJV and ESV permit close word study, while the NLT and The Message present
the text as its earliest audiences might have experienced it. The four
versions' compelete texts are conviently displayed on facing pages (two
translations per page), with the same set of verses on each one. This
arrangement makes it easy for readers to compare how different scholars rendered
the ancient biblical texts into modern English.
The Essential Evangelical Parallel Bible includes the preface
of introduction of each translation. It clearly illustrates the
translation philosophies and word choices make by diverse groups of evangelical
scholars whose work is relied upon today by millions of believers.
