Holman Bible Publishers assembled an international, interdenominational
team of 100 scholars and proofreaders, all of whom were committed to
biblical inerrancy. The translation committee sought to strike a
balance between the two prevailing philosophies of Bible translation:
formal equivalence (literal, "word-for-word", etc) and dynamic or
functional equivalence ("thought-for-thought"). The translators call
this balance Optimal Equivalence. According to the translators, the
primary goal of optimal equivalence translations is "to convey a sense
of the original text with as much clarity as possible". To that end, the
ancient source texts were exhaustively scrutinized at every level
(word, phrase, clause, sentence, discourse) to determine its original
meaning and intention. Afterwards, using the best language tools
available, the semantic and linguistic equivalents were translated into
as readable a text as possible.
