United Bible Societies, the world’s largest Christian mission organisation, provides fresh, relevant, high quality Bible translations to more of the world’s people than any other organisation.
We are currently working on Bible translations that have the potential to touch and transform the lives of more than 4 billion people. That’s two out of every three people alive on the planet today.
“If this doesn’t light your fire…your wood is wet….”
This was the enthusiastic response from one viewer after watching the launch of a new Bible translation online. Many viewers were moved to tears by the short film of the arrival of the Kimyal Bible in Indonesia. It serves as a fascinating example of how technology is helping people across the world to learn about the difference a new Bible translation can make to a remote community.
Why don’t you take a look?
The United Bible Societies’ Scripture Language Report, the only authoritative guide to the annual progress of worldwide Bible translation, records the progress made by United Bible Societies and other Bible translation agencies every year. The figures show that the complete Bible has now been translated into 475 languages and the New Testament into 1,240.
