Those are just a few things that qualify him to write about the Bible for us at Religion News Wilmington.
Here are the rest:
“Dr. Philip Stine worked for 30 years with the United Bible Societies (the American Bible Society is part of this global organization), initially as a consultant training Bible translators in Africa, later as the global director for all translation work in 135 countries as well as coordinating translation research, and subsequently as director for all global program development, publishing and marketing. In this capacity he worked with churches of all kinds, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Orthodox and independent. He earned a Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Michigan in 1968 and did post-doctoral work in biblical studies at Emory University. He is the author of numerous books and articles on translation and linguistics, most recently of a book on the history and impact of the King James Bible (forthcoming). Dr. Stine and his wife Veda Wilson have lived in Wilmington since 1999 and are members of Church of the Servant Episcopal.”
