Literally Speaking

Challies reviews Eugene Peterson's new book here. I'm not sure he's too impressed, and, given the quotes he's pulled out of the book, i'd pretty much have to agree, at least regarding his thoughts on Bible translations. I 'd have to add a caveat here, in that i'm currently (slowly) reading Peterson's first book Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places, and really enjoying it.

I can't really think of a succint way of ending this, without going into a 'literal Vs paraphrase' debate. So i'm just going to stop! Read what Challies has to say!
