"Taking a Different View of the Translation": The Illumination of Alternate Meanings in the Translation of Bible Passages by Joseph Smith and Meister Eckhart

Author Tod R Harris

Tod R Harris, project manager and senior linguist over scripture translation support for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, looks at creative and revelatory translations of the Bible performed by Church founder Joseph Smith and Meister Eckhart, a fourteenth-century scholastic and Dominican preacher. Comparing and contrasting translations of Bible verses that these two religious figures used in their preaching (as opposed to Smith's work on what is known as the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible), Harris shows how translation can also produce creative interpretations of biblical text.
