What's in a Version?

Energion Publications
Free sample

Henry E. Neufeld writes about Bible translations from his knowledge as a student of Biblical languages, and his experience teaching them to laypeople and discussing them on the internet. Many people have questions about translations because they do not understand how translations are produced. Much of the material available is either polarizing, or is provided to advocate a particular version.

What's in a Version? strives to provide a basis for lay students to understand how translations are made so they can understand the arguments and become confident of the Bible version they choose to use for reading and study.

About the author

Henry E. Neufeld is the owner of Energion Publications. His major statement of faith and his vision for the church can be found in his book Not Ashamed of the Gospel: Confessions of a Liberal Charismatic, and involves a call to demonstrate our love for God by loving our neighbors as ourselves, and engaging in dialogue rather than conflict.

Henry is the son of Seventh-day Adventist missionaries, and was raised and educated in the Seventh-day Adventist church. Though he is no longer a Seventh-day Adventist, he still respects that heritage and tries to maintain contacts and relationships with people in his former denomination.

He received his BA in Biblical Languages from Walla Walla College and his MA in Religion, concentrating in Biblical and Cognate languges from Andrews University. He did one quarter additional work in linguistics at the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle, and also completed an Associate of Applied Science degree in Interpreting and Translating from the Community College of the Air Force while on active duty.

He left both the church and church service following his graduate education. He served in the U. S. Air Force for 10 years as a linguist. He returned to the church in a United Methodist congregation (Pine Forest United Methodist Church in Pensacola, FL).

Henry hopes that his own books, and those published by Energion Publications will help build the kingdom of God.

He lives in Cantonment, FL with his wife of 13 years. They have three children, John (former MLB pitcher, now a coach in Arizona where he and his wife reside), Janet (she and her husband live in South Carolina), and James who has gone on to be with the Lord. They have seven grandchildren.
