Product Description

Product Description

The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (NWT) is published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (WT). This is the organization that Jehovah’s Witnesses belong to. But how reliable is this Bible version?
Much has been written about the NWT in regards to passages dealing with the deity of Christ. So rather than going over this much worn ground, this technical evaluation of the NWT will not specifically address these passages. Instead, this review will evaluate the NWT by looking at select passages from Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians.
The verses will be quoted first from the NWT, then the word-for-word translation in the Watchtower’s own Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures (KIT) will be quoted. Since the NWT claims to be a literal version, it will be seen how close it follows its own interlinear reading. And then the passage will be quoted from the New King James Version (NKJV) and from this reviewer’s own Analytical-Literal Translation (ALT).
The standards I will use here are the same standards that I use in evaluating over thirty versions of the Bible in my book Differences Between Bible Versions. Simply put, does the translation faithfully and accurately render the Greek text into English?
More specifically, are words translated correctly? Are words left untranslated? Are words added without any indication that they have been added? Are the grammatical forms of words altered? Are phrases paraphrased rather than translated? How readable is the text? And how reliable is the Greek text being translated?

5.0 out of 5 stars King James version Divine Name 5 Feb 2013
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I guess the witnesses were right to restore Jehovah's name back where it belongs, even the King James Divine Name realizes that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a book I Chose 30 Dec 2012
By Eyes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was not a book I had chosen, but was offered. The "New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures" was a question on Jeopardy as to which Bible is the most accurate in our day, and this version of the Bible was the 'correct' answer. Therefore, what I did read in this book I do not agree with at all. I have the "New World Translation", as well as other Bibles, and this is 'the one' I use & rely on extensively. If you read the 'Forward' in the "New World Translation", you can easily see all the hard work and skill which went into this very accurate and reliable translation of the "Holy Scriptures".

1.0 out of 5 stars NWT 23 Oct 2010
By sacbaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really disappointed when I received this version of the NWT. I was expecting the whole Bible and not someone elses opinion of a few chapters. Guess I should have read closer as I would not have purchased this book.
