COERTZE, S V. The African agent discovered: The recognition and involvement of the African biblical interpreter in Bible translation. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.29, n.1, pp.77-90. ISSN 2074-7705.
This article explores the extent to which the role of the African biblical interpreter is acknowledged in the process of Bible translation, as the Bible and Bible translation form an important part of the establishment of the African church on the continent of Africa. It points out that even though foreign discovery of African agency in Bible translation is evident, indigenous discovery of the same is largely absent. Part of the relevance of this article is for the African church to own and be actively involved in the translation of the Bible into the remaining African languages that are in need of a translation of the Bible.
