Price: $4.50
The Analytical-Literal Translation: Third Edition (ALT3) is the most accurate translation of the New Testament available. Its name reflects its main features. “Literal” refers to ALT3 being a word for word translation. All words in the original Greek text are translated. The original grammar is retained as much as possible. Words added for clarity are bracketed. “Analytical” refers to the detailed “analysis” done on the grammar of the text, which is then translated in a way that brings out “nuances” often missed in other translations. “Analytical” also refers to aids included within the text which enable the reader to “analyze” and understand the text. ALT3 is based on the most up-to-date and accurate Greek Text, the Byzantine Majority Text: Second Edition.

    Textual criticism is a highly debated topic among people, and probably always will be until Christ comes back. I am not interested in this review about arguing for which textual theory is accurate, but to rather talk about the labor and value in the Analytical-Literal Translation 3rd Edition. Thank you Gary Zeolla for putting in the work to do this, it is much valued and appreciated by me. This translation is based off of the second edition of the Byzantine Majority Greek Text. It is one of the only ones available and is a very unique translation, as it has aids within the translation that really help one understand the text. I am not an expert in Greek, so this is really a time saver and help for me and others who would like to dig deeper in the scriptures while working on learning more Greek. If you hold to the Majority Text textual criticism viewpoint, and are looking for a translation to help you, this is the one. I plan on using it side to side with my Majority Text Greek New... More > Testament that I have, but also reading it for devotional and study use. I would recommend it both for the scholar and the non-scholar. Obviously when you translate from a more complex language like Greek to English, it is difficult to show everything that the Greek text is saying. This is wonderfully done in this translation however, as the author will do things like [bracket] words for clarity, has proper analytical notes, and helps in areas like understanding whether or not you is plural or singular to give a few examples. I currently use the NKJV and KJV translations, and for me, this is a great New Testament translation to go deeper into the Word of God. The best way that I can explain this translation, is that it is the perfect bridge between a translation like the NKJV and the Greek text. So if you would like to dig deeper into God's Word, or would like to be able to read without having to look up things in bible dictionaries, this translation is for you. It is worth the value, whether you hold to the Majority Text view or not, and if you do agree with the Majority Text view, it is the best purchase you could make. It is as the name says, both literal and an analytical translation. Thanks to the author, In Christ, Benjamin< Less
