Bill Mounce has a blog entry this morning on DILOGOS in 2 Tim 3:8  
which raises some interesting questions both about academic discussion  
and about dilemmas confronted by translators: what do you do when you  
don't really; know precisely what a word means? Do you set down your  
best intelligent guess upon using all the tools available to you? Do  
you ever admit that you don't really know what a word means in the  
context in which we confront it? In this instance, two candidates for  
DILOGOS are "double-tongued," "insincere," "lacking integrity,"  
"hypocritical," or even "two-faced." You can access the blog at:
