Doug Moo on Bible Translation

The NIV (New International Version of the Bible) turns 50 this year. To mark the occasion, Zondervan have released a new Study Bible edition of the latest NIV (2011). By all reports, this seems to be quite a significant resource to Christian readers of the Bible.

There’s quite a lot of thought that goes into a Bible translation for such a wide audience as English readers around the world. At the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society, Doug Moo, one of the current movers and shakers in the NIV translation team, delivered a paper titled “We Still Don’t Get It: Evangelicals and Bible Translation Fifty Years After James Barr”. Have a listen to his address in the clip below. And underneath that is a link to some other related resources.
