Ever since World War II an increasingly larger number of persons have become interested in and concerned for the field of Bible translating; the strategy of the printed page and the crucial necessity of wider distribution of the Scriptures have forced Christians to pay greater attention to the translation and revision of the Holy Scriptures. In our rapidly shrinking world, those with even a limited knowledge of the problems of communication on the mission field, have not failed to be impressed with the significant contribution which can be made by the relatively new emphases on structural linguistics and cultural anthropology. It is not surprising, therefore, that there are many inquiries from earnest young people who arc desirous of having more information as to the opportunities for service, the necessary training, and the organizations which sponsor such endeavour throughout the world.
