A Guide to Interpreting Scripture - Context, Harmony, and Application (Paperback): Michael   Kyomya A Guide to Interpreting Scripture - Context, Harmony, and Application (Paperback)
Michael Kyomya
R243 R196 Discovery Miles 1 960 Save R47 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

According to Dr. Michael Kyomya, misconceptions about what the Bible actually says can breed confusion and false ideas about God and the Christian life. Therefore, it is critically important that you know how to interpret Scripture carefully. Dr. Michael Kyomya explains what interpretation is, why it is important, how to do it, and the pitfalls to avoid. He illustrates his points with examples from his own experience and from sermons he has heard in Africa. Dr. Kyomya makes it clear that interpretation is not just something for scholars, but also is useful when preparing a sermon or a Sunday school lesson, as well as in your own personal study of the Bible. The writing is simple and clear, and the illustrations are both amusing and informative. Full of ways to enrich personal study of the Bible, this guide will equip you with the knowledge and instruction you need.

Fictional Translators - Rethinking Translation through Literature (Paperback): Rosemary Arrojo Fictional Translators - Rethinking Translation through Literature (Paperback)
Rosemary Arrojo
R644 Discovery Miles 6 440 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Through close readings of select stories and novels by well-known writers from different literary traditions, Fictional Translators invites readers to rethink the main cliches associated with translations. Rosemary Arrojo shines a light on the transformative character of the translator's role and the relationships that can be established between originals and their reproductions, building her arguments on the basis of texts such as the following: Cortazar's "Letter to a Young Lady in Paris" Walsh's "Footnote" Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray and Poe's "The Oval Portrait" Borges's "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote," "Funes, His Memory," and "Death and the Compass" Kafka's "The Burrow" and Kosztolanyi's Kornel Esti Saramago's The History of the Siege of Lisbon and Babel's "Guy de Maupassant" Scliar's "Footnotes" and Calvino's If on a Winter's Night a Traveler Cervantes's Don Quixote Fictional Translators provides stimulating material for reflection not only on the processes associated with translation as an activity that inevitably transforms meaning, but, also, on the common prejudices that have underestimated its productive role in the shaping of identities. This book is key reading for students and researchers of literary translation, comparative literature and translation theory.

Demythologizing Revelation - A Critical Continuation of Rudolf Bultmann's Project (Hardcover): Chester O'Gorman Demythologizing Revelation - A Critical Continuation of Rudolf Bultmann's Project (Hardcover)
Chester O'Gorman
R1,497 Discovery Miles 14 970 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

What is revelation? Is it still relevant in the twenty-first century? In the twentieth century, radical theologian Rudolf Bultmann sought an answer by demythologizing scripture and Christian tradition. Most philosophers and theologians agree that he failed adequately to demythologize revelation through his notion, the kerygma. In Demythologizing Revelation: A Critical Continuation of Rudolf Bultmann's Project, Chester O'Gorman corrects this shortcoming to continue Bultmann's project, demythologizing Jesus Christ as revelation through the philosophy of Slavoj Zizek. Drawing support from other notable thinkers including Judith Butler, Thomas Altizer, Albert Camus, Rene Girard, and Martin Luther, O'Gorman proffers a non-supernatural account and theory of revelation. This theory enables both Christians and atheists to identify sites of revelation today so that all might better understand and participate in its ongoing liberation of humanity from sin and oppression, for the sake of all creation.

R2,272 R1,941 Discovery Miles 19 410 Save R331 (15%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Since its publication in 1952, Leo Strauss's Persecution and the Art of Writing has stirred considerable controversy, particularly among historians concerned with early modern philosophy. On the one hand, several scholars share his view that it would be inadequate to generally take at face value the explicit message of texts which were composed in an era in which severe sanctions were imposed on those who entertained deviating views. `Reading between the lines' therefore seems to be the appropriate hermeneutical approach. On the other hand, the risks of such an interpretative maxim are more than obvious, as it might come up to an unlimited license to ascribe heterodox doctrines to early modern philosophers whose manifest teachings were in harmony with the orthodox positions of their time. The conributions to this volume both address these methodological issues and discuss paradigmatic cases of authors who might indeed be candidates for a Straussian `reading between the lines': Hobbes, Spinoza, and Bayle.

Conference Interpreting Explained (Paperback, 2nd New edition): Roderick Jones Conference Interpreting Explained (Paperback, 2nd New edition)
Roderick Jones
R578 Discovery Miles 5 780 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Roderick Jones adopts a very practical approach to both consecutive and simultaneous interpreting, providing detailed illustrations of note-taking, reformulation, the 'salami' technique, simplification, generalization, anticipation, and so on, including numerous tricks-of-the-trade such as how to handle difficult speakers and how to interpret untranslatable jokes. Numerous examples are offered at every stage, all in English or 'foreignized' English. Although primarily written as a practitioner's explanation rather than a theorist's speculation, the book includes notes on concepts such as units of meaning, translation units and discourse structure, as well as stances on more polemical issues such as the use of omission and the ethics of interpreting mistakes. The book concludes with a comment on the pleasure of conference interpreting, as well as a glossary and suggested further readings. In all, it fills a major gap in English-language publications on interpreting, providing an introduction for beginners, a down-to-earth guide for students, and a handy compendium for teachers. The first edition of this book was published in the series Translation Theories explained, at a time when St. Jerome had no separate series for books on practice as such. Happily, it has now found its rightful place in the Practices series. Modifications with respect to the first edition include an updated reading list, an index, and guideline tasks for training sessions. The popularity of the book since its first appearance in 1998 suggests that little else needs to be changed.

By the will of fate I came to play a part in not letting Hitler achieve his final goal of disappearing and turning into a myth... I managed to prevent Stalin's dark and murky ambition from taking root-his desire to hide from the world that we had found Hitler's corpse' - Elena Rzhevskaya "A telling reminder of the jealousy and rivalries that split the Allies even in their hour of victory, and foreshadowed the Cold War"- Tom Parfitt, The Guardian On May 2,1945, Red Army soldiers broke into Hitler's bunker. Rzhevskaya, a young military interpreter, was with them. Almost accidentally the Soviet military found the charred remains of Hitler and Eva Braun. They also found key documents: Bormann's notes, the diaries of Goebbels and letters of Magda Goebbels. Rzhevskaya was entrusted with the proof of the Hitler's death: his teeth wrenched from his corpse by a pathologist hours earlier. The teeth were given to Rzhevskaya because they believed male agents were more likely to get drunk on Victory Day, blurt out the secret and lose the evidence. She interrogated Hitler's dentist's assistant who confirmed the teeth were his. Elena's role as an interpreter allowed her to forge a link between the Soviet troops and the Germans. She also witnessed the civilian tragedy perpetrated by the Soviets. The book includes her diary material and later additions, including conversations with Zhukov, letters of pathologist Shkaravsky, who led the autopsy, and a new Preface written by Rzhevskaya for the English language edition. Rzhevskaya writes about the key historical events and everyday life in her own inimitable style. She talks in depth of human suffering, of bittersweet victory, of an author's responsibility, of strange laws of memory and unresolved feeling of guilt.
