A New World of the Tradition of Bible Translation into Chinese is Opening up: Review of Study on the Tradition of Bible Translation into

Xiaochuan REN


As the canon of Christianity, the Bible has constantly been the focus of intensive study. But study on Chinese Bible translation remains inadequate by comparison. Ren Dongsheng deals with this field in depth and width in his book entitled Study on the Tradition of Bible Translation into Chinese. The book review covers the outline of the book and comments on the key ideas and research findings. Apart from elaborate materials and expert discussion, his study on Yan Fu’s Bible translation has added to the richness of Chinese Bible translation. Undoubtedly, this book is the first monograph that centers on Chinese Bible translation study in great insight.
