Unique Reference Work About English Bible Translators

The book English Language Bible Translators by William E. Paul (2003) is an excellent reference work that provides information about many of the men and women involved in producing an English language translation.

Arranged alphabetically by surname, each of the 346 entries includes the individual’s year of birth and death, place of birth, educational attainments, positions or occupations, and literary accomplishments; notes on various editions produced; samples of their translation; and other pertinent facts. In cases where translations were done by committee, the chairpersons and project initiators are covered.

Important anonymous translations are also included, and arranged under the version's name. The work is indexed, including those names of committee-level translators covered in a chairperson’s entry.

The author is the chief editor of Bible Editions & Versions: The Journal of the International Society of Bible Collectors. This reference work is truly a "must" for collectors of the Bible in English.
