Overview

Stanley Porter and Mark Boda here bring together a group of internationally respected scholars to provide an up-to-date assessment of New Testament translation in terms of textual criticism, translation theory, and theology. / Each of the three sections includes theoretical essays on the interface of a given area with particular issues in translation, followed by applications of the theory to a common passage — the story of the rich man and Lazarus found in Luke 16:19-31. Advocates of different positions note the translational implications that follow from choosing a particular textual tradition or type over another. These differing perspectives allow for both theoretical diversity and concrete differences in the practice of translation. / Translating the New Testament concludes with an overall assessment of the field of text criticism and translation studies.
