Overview

The format of the new The Bible in the 21st Century series reflects an international dialogue between experts and graduate students. In this book, experts on Bible translations present essays on the practices of translating the Bible for the present and the future, through Christian and Jewish approaches, in Western Europe and North America as well as in the former Eastern Bloc and in Africa. Each paper is paired with a response. The international contributors here include Adele Berlin, John Rogerson, Robert Carroll, Mary Phil Korsak, Everett Fox, Jeremy Punt, and Athalya Brenner, and the debate is prefaced with an introduction by the editors.

Bible Translation on the Threshold of the Twenty–First Century is perfect for students, professors, or anyone wanting to learn more about the context and specific history of the Old Testament. With the Logos edition, all Scripture references are linked to the Bibles in your library, making study easy and effective.
