NET Bible Interview for Midlands Bible College, UK
I have just completed an interview on the NET Bible with Andy Cheung of Midlands Bible College, UK. They have posted the interview online at http://www.midbible.ac.uk/content/view/124/. The interview mentions the scope of my personal involvement with the NET Bible project, but also about the original decision to include extensive notes by the translators and editors and how that contributes to transparency in the work by making it possible for the user to see the rationale for a particular word, phrase, or construction as rendered by the translators. Also discussed in the interview are the use of online feedback (NET makes extensive use of online feedback but is not a Wiki-Bible), the role of scholars from Dallas Seminary in the making of the NET Bible and the issue of avoiding bias in a Bible translation (and how NET attempted to solve that problem), and some future development projects as the NET Bible project moves forward. The whole interview makes a pretty interesting read.
