Stanley E. Porter offers a keynote contribution to this collection of essays on the various issues involved in translation of the Bible, and when accurately rendering the message of the Bible when words seem to obfuscate, rather than enhance, clarity. Contributions offer a survey of the current versions of the Gospels available, with commentary and analysis of their success and popularity. Particular attention is given to the Contemporary English Version (CEV), with a critical review provided of the reviews of this Bible translation to date.
