LE translation

In today’s post at his “He Is Sufficient” blog, ElShaddai Edwards suggests that the categories DE (Dynamic Equivalence) and FE (Formal Equivalence) do not adequately capture another important factor (desideratum, for those who like Latinate terms!) for Bible translation. It is Literary Equivalence, which ElShaddai abbreviates as LE. The post is a good read which I recommend.

I’ll be gone for a long weekend, starting tonight. I’m flying to Alaska to help my father celebrate his 90th birthday tomorrow.
