∞ Translation Thoughts from Bryan Bibb

Bryan has written a couple thought provoking posts in response to Paul Komorebi’s article Deliberate Mistranslations in the NIVHe concludes,

The “dynamic equivalence” approach doesn’t produce anything more objectively “correct” than “formal equivalence” does. The main problem is not with conservative translations; it is with the uncritical way that Christians think and write about translation itself.

He helpfully points out that all translation is interpretation and the argument for choosing a certain rendering of a passage should take place in the realm of interpretation and not translation.

Read part 1, part 2, and his paper presentation titled Translation, Rhetoric, and the Literal Word of God
