The Gospel of Matthew in German and English

A Parallel Reader for Students

About the Book

This bilingual German-English version of the Gospel of Matthew is based on the Martin Luther translation of the Bible. The German text contains about 3,500 words including plurals, possessives, and conjugations, but the sentences are generally constructed from shorter phrases, which helps to keep them comprehensible for the student. The English text in this book was translated from the German so that, unlike the King James English translation, it closely matches the structure and vocabulary used in the German text. The German and English texts are laid out in separate but aligned columns. This parallel format enables the student to practice reading German without becoming distracted by the English, while also making it easy to find the English translation for an unknown word in context. Additionally, every word or phrase in the German text is linked to its corresponding English translation - see the right side of the cover (or sample) for an example. This book is accessible to part-time German language students as early as the second semester of study (U.S. 8th grade), and useful as a language enrichment or independent study resource, particularly for motivated Bible students or missionaries with no prior experience with the German language.

About the Author

I am a polyglot programmer with more than 15 years of professional programming experience. When learning a new programming language, I start with a familiar problem and try to learn enough of the new language to solve it.  For me, an engine for solving genetic algorithms is that familiar problem.  Why?  For one thing, it is a project where I can explore interesting puzzles, and where even a child's game like Tic-tac-toe can be viewed on a whole new level.  Also, I can select increasingly complex puzzles to drive evolution in the capabilities of the engine.  This allows me to discover the expressiveness of the language, the power of its tool chain, and the size of its development community as I work through the idiosyncrasies of the language.
