Chapter 1 is a cultural critique on the phenomenon of sacred text translation, centering on the enormous global Bible translation project, but also including comparative references to the Qur‘an, and to sacred texts of religions other than Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This is framed by a general discussion of the triangular relationship of language, religion and nationalism.
