I have become a fan of the God Didn’t Say That blog and thought that I should put a shout out to Dr. Hoffman for his outstanding work.  This is from his site:

Joel M. Hoffman holds a PhD in theoretical linguistics, and has taught Bible in religious settings and translation theory at Brandeis University and at HUC-JIR in New York City. He is the chief translator of the widely read My People’s Prayer Book series (winner of the National Jewish Book Award) and author of the critically acclaimed In the Beginning: A Short History of the Hebrew Language (NYU Press).

His latest book is And God Said: How Translations Conceal The Bible’s Original Meaning.

I have enjoyed his in depth looks into the language of the bible and the potential impacts to our understanding of God’s words.  Highly recommended.
