Bible Translation and the Making of the ESV Catholic Edition, by Mark Giszczak CTS Books Available 30th JUNE 2024


Since the Bible is God's Word in human words, the way we translate its words from the original languages into English takes on a profound significance. The ESV Catholic Edition draws on the rich treasure trove of recent manuscript discoveries like the Dead Sea Scrolls to inform its presentation of the biblical text. It adopts an "essentially literal" translation philosophy, attempting to be as transparent as possible to the original text. As a deliberately Christian translation, the ESV translates Old Testament passages in such a way as to point to Christ.  In this informative book, Mark Giszczak explains how the translation used in the new Lectionary was carried out and what it can teach us about the Word of God.
