"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. How Christianity has been a preserver, rather than a destroyer, of indigenous cultures and languages. 288 pages, softcover. Orbis.
Working with new insights on the influence that Christian translations of Scriptures and catechisms into African languages had on cultural self-understanding, social awakening, religious renewal, reciprocity in mission, process, Sanneh shows that mission and translation were and continue to be integral parts of cultural renewal in the face of the relentless onslaught of imperialism in its classic and contemporary forms.
