Summary: Solving the problems in Bible translation has turned up a valuable repository of illustrations that cast new light upon scripture. And often the receptor tribal language is better able than English to accommodate the exact meaning of the Greek or Hebrew word or phrase. A few illustrations from Bible translation have appeared in scattered books, but never before has an up-to-date compilation appeared of the best illustrations from the worldwide field work of the Wycliffe Bible Translators, the major Bible translating agency of modern times. Searchlight on Bible Words is without doubt the only book of its kind for Bible students, teachers, preachers, and writers. - Introduction.
