High Noon: Professor Bibb looks at modern English translations of the Bible

The Bible is the most translated book in the world, and that includes dozens of English translations over the centuries. So what does it mean when so many versions of the Bible are marketed as “faithful to the original” or “word for word” or “unbiased?” Furman religion professor Bryan Bibb will discuss the modern controversies related to English translations of the Bible when he speaks at the university’s High Noon fall lecture series Wednesday, Oct. 28 at noon at the Upcountry History Museum-Furman. His lecture, “Translating Controversy: Theology and Politics of the Bible in English,” is free and open to the public.
