Thanks for the clarification.

I would recommend that you look at: E-A. Gutt, Translation and 
Relevance: Cognition and Context, 2nd edition, St. Jerome, Manchester 
2000. This starts with a clear introduction to the theory as a whole, 
partly in the context of biblical texts. I disagree with how Gutt has 
applied it to translation, but that is the thrust of my paper.
