What Are the Worst English Translations of the Bible?

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

    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.”
