The Fascination of Bible Translation
The German Bible Society (GBS – Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft) publishes a newly-translated Luther Bible (ie reformulated text) in time for the Reformation Anniversary 2017.
The GBS not only offers the Luther translation. There are some, very different and modern translations of the Bible from the Bible Society.
Especially in the Reformation Anniversary year 2017, in which the buzz surrounding the new edition of the Lutheran Bible is enormous, it makes sense to draw some of this attention also to the other translation projects of GBS. Therefore the GBS developed a typographic calendar. Every calendar sheet offers month by month information about how the translations differs from the others. Booksellers and customers not so familiar with the GBS portfolio get a quick overview about the products. The calendar is a gift to booksellers and supporters of the GBS.
