 In this comprehensive paperback resource that Crossway kindly gave me to review, authors Gregory R. Lanier, PhD, and William A. Ross, PhD, address The Septuagint: What It Is and Why It Matters. Although the title sounds straightforward enough, this Greek translation of scripture follows a meandering path. Until the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians in 586, Hebrew scriptures were ..read more

After centuries of the King James Version of the Bible and Douay-Rheims providing the main English editions to choose from, biblical scholars and interdenominational committees revisited the ancient Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic texts to provide us with contemporary versions we could more readily understand. For quite a while in the 20th and 21st centuries, Bible publishers regularly released new ..read more

ESV Expository Commentary: Matthew–Luke
Bible Reviewer
by
1y ago
 My first impression of the ESV Expository Commentary: Matthew–Luke, which Crossway kindly sent me to review, is undeniable heft! With 1156 pages and a three-inch depth from hardcover front to back, the very weight of this volume illustrates its own aim toward comprehensiveness.   Using the highly acclaimed ESV translation (English Standard Version) as the basis of this massive work, the ..read more

Which translation of the Bible do you like best?
Bible Reviewer
by
1y ago
 When a service person came to our house this week, he saw the books in my little office and asked, “Do you think you have enough Bibles?” Probably not! But that started us talking about which translations we prefer and why.   As you might have guessed by now, I love them all! (Well, almost! I had to decline a review copy of an edition that omitted “negative” parts!) Although I use only the ..read more

Amplified Holy Bible XL Edition
Bible Reviewer
by
1y ago
 The Amplified Study Bible (large print) , which I reviewed a couple of years ago, sits on my desk for regular reference in preparing for a Bible talk or group discussion. But sometimes I just want a reader’s edition to read from my comfy chair. The thing is, my eyes object to the smaller fonts in most of the reader-editions I’ve bought or been given over the years, so my quest of late has been ..read more
