"Monkeying With The Bible”: Edgar J. Goodspeed's American Translation, R. Bryan Bademan Jan 2006

"Monkeying With The Bible”: Edgar J. Goodspeed's American Translation, R. Bryan Bademan

History Faculty Publications

Devotion to the Bible remains an underappreciated aspect of American religious life partly because it fails to generate controversy. This essay opens a window onto America's relationship with the Bible by exploring a controversial moment in the history of the Bible in America: the public reception of University of Chicago professor Edgar J. Goodspeed's American Translation (1923). Initially, at least, most Americans flatly rejected Goodspeed's impeccably credentialed attempt to cast the language of the Bible in contemporary "American" English. Accusations of the professor's irreligion, bad taste, vulgarity, and crass modernity emerged from nearly every quarter of ...

Robert Pinkerton: Principal Agent Of The Bfbs In The Kingdoms Of Germany, Wayne A. Detzler Jan 2004

Robert Pinkerton: Principal Agent Of The Bfbs In The Kingdoms Of Germany, Wayne A. Detzler

History Faculty Publications

According to Lord Teignmouth, who served as the first president of the British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS), Robert Pinkerton (1780-1859) was the "most diligent of all the Society's agents."

This paper seeks to build upon such interest in Pinkerton's work and observations, dividing his Bible Society career into four phases: The Russian Years; His Hopes for War-Torn Europe; Surviving the Apocrypha Crisis; and Pinkerton's New Path in Frankfurt.

Seeds Of Missiology In The German Erweckung (1815–1848), Wayne A. Detzler Jan 1995

Seeds Of Missiology In The German Erweckung (1815–1848), Wayne A. Detzler

History Faculty Publications

It is my contention that seeds of a primitive missiology emerged early in the nineteenth century in Germany. This was necessitated by the vitality of the religious awakening known as the Erweckung. At first this missionary impulse was sporadic, ecumenical and individualistic. Johannes Aargaard regarded the ecumenical period of missions on the continent of Europe as lasting from 1800 to 1830 and the period following that as characterized by confessional missionary activity. By the same token he considered the emphasis of continental missions in the early years (1800–1820) to be that of training for missions. After 1820 the emphasis ...
