Table of contents
From One Medium to Another is a collection of articles based on the papers presented at a Symposium organised by the American Bible Society (ABS) on September 7-9, 1995 at Bible House in New York City. The central question around which the Symposium convened, was: "How can the meaning of texts, especially biblical texts, be translated and communicated faithfully into media other than print?" Key experts from a variety of disciplines addressed both theoretical and practical issues raised by this question.
