A few weeks ago I published my second e-book, The Why and How of Bible Translation: What Every Christian Should Know, but few do . . . very few. I immediately sent a download code to the more than fifty people who had already bought it, sight unseen, in previous months. Now it is ready for a general launch.
The 28 story-based articles in the three sections of this book shed light on worldwide Bible translation, a subject most Christians are confused about.
- Why does the Bible need to be translated, isn’t it easier just to teach indigenous peoples the national language?
- How is the Bible translated and how can you be sure it is translated accurately?
- How has technology changed the world of Bible translation?
- Why did Mark and Luke change what Jesus actually said instead of quoting Him exactly as Matthew did? Should today’s translators follow their example?
- What is more difficult than translating from one language to another? Hint, think cultures.
- Find out why support for Bible translation would skyrocket among Christians, if linguistics was taught as widely as biology, chemistry or physics.
