Jan interviews a number of guests with her co-hosts Eric Barger and Jill Martin Rische. The topic is the Wycliffe Bible translation controversy.
Is there now a Muslim-friendly Bible? Wycliffe is accused by missionaries and other critics of defending something deceptive. Jan talks to Wycliffe VP Russ Herssman in the first half hour but also some critics. They include Georges Housnney of Biblical Missiology and David Irvine who pulled out of Wycliffe over the issue of removing "Son" and "Father" in the Bible. A third guest is Emily Belz of World Magazine
who has provided cutting-edge information on this story. Are the accusations off-base or have some actions been taken that are in the best interest of Muslims? Has postmodern, Emergent influence now entered the world of para-church minstry? Other organizations in the effort are Summer Institute of Linguistics and Frontiers.
