About the Lecture
In this Evening Public Lecture, New Testament scholar and Chair of the Committee on Bible Translation Douglas Moo discusses translating the Bible as an act of communication. To communicate effectively, we need to know our audience. What is the “audience” of translations of the Bible into English? As we analyze that audience today, what are the implications for the process of translation?
