New Bibles by the truckload
The eagerly expected consignment of Bibles in various indigenous languages has arrived, the Bible Society of Namibia announced this week. “After months of waiting, the first container of more than 30,000 Bibles was delivered at the Bible Shop in Windhoek. Just in time for Christmas!” said Bianca Dien, the person responsible for sales at the Bible House.
This consignment consists of Bibles in Otjiherero, Rukwangali, Silozi, Umbundu, Luchazi, Portuguese and English. The Bible Society said in a statement announcing the arrival of the new Bibles, all these Bibles are available at the Bible Shops in Windhoek and Ongwediva. The Bible Society also advised that the Bibles are available from the Mobile Bible Shop which is currently travelling the entire country to bring the Word even to remote villages. “The next container with more than 38,000 Bibles is expected to arrive in Walvis Bay by the end of November and will contain the long-awaited revised Oshikwanyama Bible, a reprint of the Bible in Oshindonga, as well as the very first publication of the New Testament in Dhimba. Translations in indigenous languages are very popular, and the Bible Society expects the first consignment to sell fast. Bibles can be ordered from Biance Dien at [email protected] .
