Recent debate on gender-neutral versions of the Bible has again raised the question of how the Word of God should be translated. Robert Martin argues that the verbal nature of inspiration can only be honoured if preference is given to a formal equivalence approach. Alec Motyer points out in a review for Evangelicals Now that translations based on dynamic equivalence 'trespass to an impermissible degree into the realm of interpretation . . . removing our right to weigh the Scriptures for ourselves'. Martin's scrutiny, Motyer goes on, has 'exposed the pervasive inadequacy of the New International Version. Martin's book does us a great service: make sure not to miss it.'
