Maybe I'm Amazed

May 11, 2021

One of the questions that Maybe I'm Amazed host James Howell gets asked most often is what is the best translation of the Bible? Is it King James? Revised Standard? Or do we need a translation with a more modern version?

James' guest on today's show is professional translator Sarah Ruden, who has translated everything from ancient novels and hymns to Plato.

James and Sarah talk about how Sarah got into her professional (hint: it takes lots of studying different languages), what the benefits are of multiple Bible translations, and why the use of language is so crucial in sharing ideas, stories, traditions and culture.
