      Product Description

      Since its original publication Translating the Message has transformed common perceptions of mission, showing how the process of "translation" has made Christianity a preserver, rather than a destroyer of indigenous languages and cultures.

      This thoroughly revised edition, drawing on the latest scholarship, refocuses the original thesis and adds illustrations and new tables of translation.

      "Not just another book about Bible translation, but a new paradigm for understanding the history of the expansion of Christianity, the missionary role, and a theology of culture." —International Bulletin of Missionary Research

      "Lamin Sanneh is probably the most significant theologian of mission in the English-speaking world today." -Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

      Lamin Sanneh, D. Willis James Professor of Missions & World Christianity and Professor of History at Yale Divinity School, was appointed by Pope John Paul II to the Pontifical Commission of the Historical Sciences and by Pope Benedict XVI to the Pontifical Commission on Religious Relations with Muslims. He is a Commandeur de l’Ordre National du Lion, Senegal’s highest national honor.
