WENDLAND, Ernst R.. Jeremy Munday, Introducing Translation Studies: Theories and Applications. Old testam. essays [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.2, pp. 421-454. ISSN 2312-3621.
In the review that follows, I present a selective content summary of the sequence of chapters found in this book, accompanied by my critical comments and additions from the specific perspective of Bible translating. "Translation Studies " is a growing, interdisciplinary field, and therefore, it is important for Bible scholars to be aware of the main "theories and applications" that are popular nowadays. This is because the different viewpoints expressed concern not only the numerous Bible translations that are available in English and other languages, but they also relate, in varying degrees, to distinct hermeneutical approaches to the Scriptures.
