The Mission Field of Bible Translation
Did you know that there are over 1.5 billion people in the world that do not have the Scriptures in their language?
I came across an interesting survey this past week….Barna Group surveyed 2,000 Americans….72% of those surveyed believed that the Gospel is available in all of the world’s languages. The reality is that only 43% of languages actually have a Bible translation available. Of the world's 6,901 different languages, 1,859 (31 percent) languages don't even have a Bible translation started. (link)
Our guest today is Lloyd William, Bible translator with Worldview Ministries. In this episode we discuss the need for Bible translation efforts, the lack of awareness in our Baptist circles, as well as the training necessary to get projects started and begin putting the Bible into the hands of those that need Jesus!!
