Why Bible Translation

  • September 20, 2016

The Bible is one of the oldest and most popular books of all time. But is it just a book, or is it much more?

At Wycliffe Bible Translators, we believe that the Bible is God’s Word to us — something that everyone should be able to understand in their own language. But up to 1,600 languages around the world are still waiting for a translation project to begin. When people finally get the Bible in their own language, lives often change in amazing ways. People are transformed as they are led to Jesus Christ and a right relationship with God.

The Bible has changed countless lives all around the world. It has brought light and hope. It has been a source of comfort. But best of all, it leads people to Jesus. That's why the #WhyBible campaign exists — to encourage people from all backgrounds to share how the Bible has impacted them, their communities and their world. Visit wycliffe.org/whybible to read stories of transformation.
