The Better Bibles Blog (BBB) focuses on how to improve translations of the Bible. We focus on English translations of the Bible.
Having this blog focus on improving Bible translations in no way detracts from our gratefulness to Bible translators who have worked hard, often sacrificially, to produce the Bible versions which are critiqued on this blog. Posting critiques does not mean that a Bible version is bad; it only means that we see room for improvement. And most Bible translators want to improve their translations, because all translators recognize that no translation, including their own, is perfect.
And as we are grateful for the wealth of Bible translations we have for English, let us not forget the 3,000 language groups around the world who do not have any Bible translation in their language. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if more of the resources spent producing more English Bibles would be directed toward translating for Bibleless peoples?
