Bible Translations by John Rataczak
Although I am not a theological scholar or a widely read person in apologetics, I can’t imagine anything being left out in this book. No stone was left unturned. Very thoroughly researched. Meticulously backed up with scripture references and bibliographical footnotes.
If you love scholarly works, theology or apologetics you will love the thorough research that went into the making of this book.
I would not consider this to be “light” reading. Please keep in mind that there are no stories and no humor. If you need those in your books you will not like this one.
The most practical information included (especially for someone like me who looks for Christian living applications all the time) was the chapter on basic methods of Bible study. Very useful.
This book is best suited to those who love theology or apologetics or those people who will teaching others on these topics.
One thing I would have liked to have seen, especially since there was so much information, is an index. It will be very hard to find what you are looking for, after the fact, without an index. Personally, I think all nonfiction books should have an index, but a book of this type especially needs one.
