Although there are many interpreters in Christian settings, often working as volunteers, there is very little in print to help them. This is a therefore a must-ready volume. A ground-breaking book, though-provoking and encouraging.
The author demonstrates that the Bible offers:
. A command to interpret in church
. A model of a church interpreter
. A church interpreter’s code of ethics
. A method for interpreting in church
. A case-study on the attitudes and moral fortitude require of a church interpreter
. A code of practice for church interpreting
Much practical help and assistance is gleaned for those interpreting spoken and signed languages. Counsel is also offered primarily for sign language interpreters for:
. Interpreting the public reading Scripture
. Leading and interpreting traditional hymns
. Interpreting through the medium of text.
