"Translating the Bible into Action" by Harriet Hill and Margaret Hill is now available as an e-book for the Kindle from

In this book, the authors show how Bible translations and Bible formats, for example, or family and church customs, levels of literacy or the way majority and minority languages interact in multi-lingual cultures, all affect the way we understand what we read, and in particular, what we read in the Bible.

Next, this book suggests actions to help readers overcome the obstacles they face in reading the Bible with meaningful understanding. The book is structured so that individual chapters can be studied separately in workshops. Questions, discussion topics and group activities for learners are included, as well as stories that illustrate the main ideas.
