This topics covered in this volume, embracing both Old and New Testaments, range from detailed studies, such as how a particular biblical verse might be rendered from Hebrew or Greek to larger philosophical and hermeneutical issues-the importance of tradition; how translations come to be canonized; and how a modern translation can and should be evaluated. The value of this topical and highly informative volume lies not only in its insights into particular translational cruxes but in the questions raised and answers suggested regarding translation theory and practice in a range of scriptural texts.... therefore, one must be very cautious in directly equating the content of the canonical books with the process of canonization. ... For definitions of canonization, canon, etc., consult the standard works such as Westcott, A General Survey, pp.
