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.

Publisher's Description

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.
