Providing a behind-the-scenes look at the work of a Bible translator, Dr. Henshaw will present the original Hebrew texts of familiar passages from the Old Testament and show the various ways that they have been translated into English. Dr. Henshaw will also consider the challenge of translating the Bible into modern English.
