Here is the new look autumn 2017 edition of Words for Life!

1.5 billion people are still waiting for the Bible in their own language. That’s 1 in 5 people worldwide.

It is a startling statistic.

Of course, it is not just a statistic. Behind the numbers are individual people, each one made in God’s image – 1.5 billion hearts, minds, and souls that are denied the opportunity to engage fully with the Bible, and to hear God’s saving and transforming message of love through it.

Enabling each of these people to engage with the life-giving and life-transforming richness of the Bible is what Wycliffe’s work is all about.

In this special issue of Words for Life, discover the journey of Bible translation – from the first steps of building relationships to initial translation, from the multi-layered checking process to the work of training and encouraging people so they can fully engage with the newly translated Scriptures, each part of this process plays a crucial role in producing translations that God will use for generations to come to draw people to him.
