Overview

Volume 2 of The English Bible continues Eadie’s history of English Bible translations. This volume contains chapters on the Geneva Bible, the Bishop’s Bible, the Douay-Rheims, and the Authorized Version, the most popular Protestant translation during Eadie’s life time and still widely read today. The second half of this volume argues for a new English translation to replace the Authorized Version. Eadie begins his argument with the theological justification—Scripture is God-breathed and inspired for each new generation. He also shows how new understanding of the original texts expose flaws in the accepted translations of his time. He also points to new translation methods and a better understanding of the elements of Greek—such as articles, tenses, prepositions, and proper names—which would help produce a more accurate, readable, and useful translation.

About John Eadie

John Eadie (1810–1876) was an active member of the Succession Church, an influential nineteenth century Scottish Presbyterian denomination, which was later renamed the United Presbyterian Church.

In 1835, Eadie became a minister at the Cambridge Street Church is Glasgow. In addition to his pastoral duties, Eadie became a professor of biblical literature and hermeneutics at the United Presbyterian Divinity Hall, and he received his D.D. from St. Andrews in 1850. During his industrious career at the Divinity Hall, Eadie penned the five New Testament commentaries for which he is best known. His writings contributed to the growing interest in biblical criticism and hermeneutics.
