This book answers such questions as: Why do Bible versions differ? Why does the same verse read differently in different versions? Why do some versions contain words, phrases, and even entire verses that other versions omit? Which Bible versions are most reliable? This book contains extensive discussions on why the author believes either a literal or a formal equivalence ( word-for-word ) translation principle is the best method to use for translating the Bible. These principles of translating are contrasted with the dynamic equivalence ( phrase for phrase ) and paraphrase methods seen in many modern Bible versions. This book includes detailed discussions on why the author believes the Majority Text is the most accurate of the three Greek texts used in Bible translation. This book also contains an extended section critiquing the claims of KJV-onlyists. In addressing these various issues, Differences Between Bible Versions compares forty different versions of the Bible.
