My friend Bob Creson, president of Wycliffe US, has just made an excellent post about the impact of Bible translation on communities around the world.
The Bible has a lot to say about God’s special love for the poor, the downtrodden, and the oppressed. I believe that he is pleased when these marginalized people are offered the Scriptures in their language. I believe we honor Him when we choose to say with John Wycliffe. “Everyone has a right, even peasants, to hear and understand the Word of God.”
