Summary
"A compelling account of African and European missionary translation teams working in Ghana and Togo from the 15th century into the 20th century. J. D. K. Ekem, director of the Institute of Mother-tongue Biblical Hermeneutics at Trinity Theological Seminary, Legon, Ghana, guides readers through an account of the earliest translations of biblical texts into the four main languages of Ghana and Togo, providing fascinating examples that illustrate the historical contexts and key translation issues, along with the daunting obstacles and ultimate triumphs of the early translation teams." -- Publisher description
