With the help of the House of James Christian bookstore in Abbotsford we explore the various popular translations of Scripture, and highlight various choices within each translation
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) provides a highly accurate text for sermon preparation and serious study, translated from the biblical languages by scholars who love God’s Word. The CSB was created using Optimal Equivalence, a translation philosophy that balances linguistic precision to the original languages and readability in contemporary English. In the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering is clearly inderstandable, a literal translation is used. When a word-for-word rendering might obsure the meaning for a modern audience, a more dynamic translation is used

In 1604, soon after James’ coronation as king of England, a conference of churchmen requested that the English Bible be revised because existing translations “were corrupt and not answerable to the truth of the original.” The King James Version (KJV) had a marked influence on English literary style and was generally accepted as the standard English Bible from the mid-17th to the early 20th century.

In 1975, Thomas Nelson Publishers commissioned 130 of the most esteemed Bible scholars, church leaders, and lay Christians to produce an entirely new, modern translation of Scripture. Their goal was to retain the purity and stylistic beauty of the original King James Version while incorporating a modern, more up-to-date language. Using a literal method of translation, those who worked on the project held to an uncompromising faithfulness to the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic texts, as they employed the most recent research in linguistics, textual studies, and archaeology.
