This book contains several of the author’s essays and one essay by a different author, J. Busse, on Bible translation. Most of the material in this book covers data and case studies on Bible translations into African languages, there is another essay dealing with the translation of Biblical key concepts into Chinese (pp. 137-164). The major part of this book is in German; however, the essay on “Contrasting World Views in Christianity and Animism” (pp. 81-94) is in English. The material presented in this book attests to the close interrelation of Bible translation, source and target languages, Christian mission and native culture. For, what can a Bible translator do if there is no word for the God of the Bible in the target language into which the Bible is to be translated? Large contents of this book have also been used in programmes of Applied Linguistics at graduate course level for the training of Bible translators.
