Series: The AccessTruth Curriculum
The first part of Resourcing the church (Module 8 of the AccessTruth Curriculum) is a comprehensive guide to the foundational principles of communicating meaning in another language and culture. Bible translation principles and many practical examples and exercises are given to help to equip anyone intending to teach or translate God’s Word in another context. Later in Module 8, a series of tutorials explores the area of Literacy; what it is, how it affects the church in particular, and how to develop and nurture a community literacy project. Finally, the area of developing Bible teaching resources for the church is covered, helping to present the principles of team work and a careful, collaborative approach.
