Bible translation matters

Yung Suk Kim

There are many problems in the translation of the NIV. Especially, a lot of translation issues are found in Paul's letters. But today I discovered another problem in Luke 15:4. Eremos means a desert or wilderness in the plain sense, but the NIV translates it as "open country." I kind of know why such a translation was made.
