From the Publisher

The 28 story-based articles in the three section of this book shed light on worldwide Bible translation, a subject most Christians are confused about. Why does the Bible need to be translated, isn't it easier just to teach indigenous peoples the national language? How is the Bible translated and how can you be sure it is translated accurately? How has technology changed the world of Bible translation? These and dozens of other questions about culturally relevant translation are answered clearly in this book. The author and his wife learned an unwritten Brazilian indigenous language by living among the people for over two decades. They developed an alphabet, set up an educational system, and translated a large part of the Bible into the people's language.

And “if religious instruction were not allowed until the child had attained the age of reason,” maintained Christopher Hitchens, “we would be living in a quite different world.” New data from the Pew Research Center doesn’t disprove these claims, but it does challenge them. While Americans with college experience are overall less likely to attend ser

Is AI a Threat to Christianity?

In his relatively short tenure, Pope Francis has been hard at work welcoming spiritual seekers into the Catholic Church. He’s refused to judge LGBT people, sought to integrate divorced couples, and extended priests’ ability to forgive abortion. But Francis’s wide arms have arguably never stretched further than a mass in 2014 when he suggested the church would baptize Martians. “If—for example—tomorrow an expedition of Martians came … and one says, ‘But I want to be baptized!’ What would happen?” Pope Francis asked. “When the Lord shows us the way, who are we to say, ‘No, Lord, it is not pruden

Why Did This Happen in Canada?

At around 7:50 pm on Sunday evening, police received several emergency calls from the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec, a mosque and cultural center in Quebec City. They arrived to a scene of carnage: Six Muslim men, including a halal butcher, a university professor, and a government worker, had been shot and killed by a gunman. Nineteen others were injured. Of the five who were sent to the hospital, four remain, two in critical condition. The attack, one of the worst acts of violence against Muslims in Canadian history, shocked a nation that prides itself on being a paragon of multicultura
