Open Theology ( invites submissions for the topical issue ‘Bible Translation’, under the general editorship of Dr. Mark L. Strauss (Bethel Seminary San Diego).

Yet issues related to the theory and practice of translation are not widely discussed in biblical studies circles. We invite linguists, international Bible translators, and biblical scholars to discuss the history, theory, practice, and recent developments in the field of Bible translation.

Submissions are due by March 15, 2016. To submit an article for the special issue of Open Theology, please use the on-line submission system choosing as article type: ‘Special Issue Article: ‘Bible Translation’.

All contributions will undergo a critical review before being accepted for publication.
