When the first edition of this text appeared in 1981. D.A. Carson called it "considerably more detailed than its closest competitor." This second edition continues this tradition by offering a meticulous, informed analysis of the three most recent revisions of the English Bible.
Jack Lewis evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the New King James Version (the first edition included comments only on the NKJV New Testament), the Revised English Bible, and the New Revised Standard Version. Like its predecessor, this volume begins by treating the story of the Bible prior to the English versions and of the English translations prior to the King James Version.
The rest of the book presents an assessment of these major translations and revisions:
· King James Version · American Standard Version · Revised Standard Version · New English Bible · New American Standard Bible · New International Version · Jerusalem Bible · New American Bible · New World Translation · Living Bible · Good News Bible
