What Are the Worst English Translations of the Bible?

  1. The Message – Eugene Peterson
  2. The Living Bible- Kenneth Taylor

Both are absolute Dreck, and absolutely useless for either devotional reading or study of any kind.

    I completely agree, but did you perhaps mean “The New Living Translation” instead of “The Living Bible”? (I like to call it the “New *Lying* Translation”.) “The Living Bible,” I think, only claims to be a paraphrase, and that is *why* they produced “The New Living Translation.”

      tlb is a paraphrase but then so is the message. paraphrases are always worthless as they always misrepresent
