Of the many Bible translations available today, are some better than others? If so, what criteria can we use to determine what makes a good translation? Leland Ryken introduces readers to the central issues in this debate and presents several reasons why essentially literal—word-for-word—translations are superior to dynamic equivalent—thought-for-thought—translations.
You don’t have to be a Bible scholar to recognize the need for a quality Bible translation. We all want to know that the Bible we read, study, and memorize is faithful to the original. Dr. Ryken tackles this issue and breaks it down in this concise, logical, and straightforward book, giving readers a valuable tool for selecting a Bible translation.
“Professor Ryken draws on decades of experience… to show that many modern English translations fail to meet accepted standards of excellence in accuracy, faithfulness to the words of the author, clarity, vividness, correctness….”
“The persistent, detonating logic of Lee Ryken’s pen will educate and convince any fair-minded person that the primary Bible for study and preaching must be an essentially literal translation.”
“A masterful and convincing argument for literal, that is to say, transparent translation of the Holy Scriptures.”
“An ideal guide to choosing a translation of the Word that transcends trendy words. In the process, he implicitly indicts those who settle for less.”
Many educators accept teaching with technology as perhaps the most important instructional strategy to impact the classroom since the introduction of the textbook. The Taxonomy for the Technology Domain suggests a new classification system that includes literacy, collaboration, decision-making, infusion, integration, and technology. As with most taxonomies, each step offers a progressively more sophisticated level of complexity by constructing increasingly multifaceted objectives addressing more complex student learning outcomes. The Taxonomy for the Technology Domain will affect all aspects of how technology in used in elementary and secondary classrooms, corporate training rooms, and higher education classrooms.
