Lutheran Christians celebrate this year the 500th anniversary of the reformation that originally took place in Germany some 500 years ago, and Martin Luther’s German Bible translation was one of the highlights of the same with a long-lasting impact, and German Lutheran Christians have been in praise of its readability, style, and rhythm of language that makes memorizing Bible verses easy ever since. This small book is a critical study of Luther’s translation, comparing about 11 selected Bible passages from the Old and New Testament in Luther’s text with the respective Biblical Hebrew and Greek original passages to estimate the accuracy of his translation into German in the light of the original inspired texts. Some more material covering the basic principles of Bible translation in general complement this study at the end of this small book.
