Rereading the Biblical Text: Searching for Meaning and Understanding deals with problems scholars face in translating Hebrew words and sentences into contemporary English. Modern readers have many choices when selecting a translation of the Bible for personal use. Translators seek to convey to today’s readers the message the biblical writers tried to communicate to their original readers. At times, however, what the original authors tried to convey to their audience was not clear. Claude Mariottini has selected several difficult passages from the Old Testament and compared how different translations have dealt with these difficult texts. Pastors, seminary
students, and serious students of the Bible will be challenged to reread the biblical text and understand the message of the biblical writers in a new perspective.

    I sure wish you would put it out in Kindle Books. I don’t read many books which aren’t any more.
