Oxford University Press adds to its prestigious list of parallel-text biblical-reference resources with the Evangelical Parallel New Testament . This volume features the New Testaments of eight translations used by various segments within the evangelical community today. It is particularly notable for including the recently published Holman Christian Standard Bible, The Message, the New Living Translation, and Today's New International Version. The texts are arranged on facing pages, with the texts of four translations on each page. The Evangelical Parallel New Testament shows the translation philosophies and word choices made by diverse groups of evangelical scholars during the last three decades of the twentieth century. This useful volume features three interesting essays: one on the specific characteristics of each translation and where it falls in the spectrum of approaches, a second on formal vs. functional equivalence in translation, and a third on the underlying Greek text of the New Testament.Evangelical Parallel New Testament, with ISBN 9780195281774 and ISBN 0195281772.
