Review Text

The author who is in charge of translation for the American Bible Society has uncovered a gold mine of fresh illustrative material in the experience of translating the Bible into more than a thousand languages. The difficulties of translating the Bible into languages that had never been put into written form, or into strange dialects, in which the Biblical language if literally translated could have quite a different meaning, are related with humor and effectiveness. Anyone interested in language study as well as those concerned with the deeper meanings of scripture will find this a fascinating book. (Kirkus Reviews)
