Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

“Bible Translation and Biblical Hermeneutics” is a peer-reviewed academic volume that delves into the intricate relationship between language translation and biblical interpretation. This comprehensive collection seeks to attract distinguished contributors to explore the dynamic interplay between these two critical aspects of biblical studies.

The volume invites biblical scholars, linguists, and theologians, to contribute their cutting-edge research and insights. By addressing the complexities of translating ancient biblical texts into contemporary languages, the book endeavors to shed light on the significance of nuanced language choices in shaping theological understandings and interpretations.

The contributors will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics from a multidisciplinary approach, including the historical development of biblical translation, the influence of cultural contexts on interpretation, the role of language dynamics in shaping theological concepts, the relevance of exegesis in the interpretative process, the interplay between biblical languages and theological interpretation, and the challenges of preserving textual authenticity during translation processes, among many others.

This academic volume aims to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue, facilitating collaboration between scholars working with different approaches to biblical text and its interpretation. It promises to be an invaluable resource for those seeking a deeper understanding of how language and interpretation mutually inform and enrich the study of the Bible across diverse linguistic, theological, and cultural contexts.

Potential contributors are encouraged to submit their original research, case studies, and theoretical insights, as this volume seeks to make a lasting contribution to the fields of biblical and theological studies, translation studies, and hermeneutics.
