Sometimes it is not possible to give an accurate translation without giving
some background on the culture and theological framework in which a word
was used. Maybe we can find an equivalent for OUAI in modern English, maybe
we can't. If not, we may need footnotes.

Some knowledge of the Andrews Sisters may be necessary for an adequate
understanding of the Bible, e.g. when discussing the Seven Bugle Boys in
the Revelation.
