As a distinguished bunch of august translators, I guess we don't really
need 'em, however I'm wondering if interested list members could share
which translations they favour and why?

Over the years, I have read books on the current English translations, such
as Sakae Kubo's "So Many Versions?" (I forget the co-author...sorry!) I
recently bought Philip Comfort's "Complete Guide to Bible Versions," but
was disappointed to discover that he works for Tyndale, who publish The New
Living Translation, and his "review" of that book was taken from the
preface to the book itself!
