“I have also undertaken to translate the Bible into German. That was necessary for me; otherwise I might have died someday imagining that I was a learned man. Those who think themselves scholars should try to do this work.” —Martin Luther
From the time of Wycliffe, Huss, Luther, Erasmus and Tyndale until now Bible translation has been one of the foremost evangelistic tools and revolutionized societies on multiple levels as it increases literacy and encourages personal investigation of God’s Word.
One of the great challenges of the 20th and 21st centuries has been expanding translation into the languages of more remote people groups, whole-heartedly believing that God speaks in every tongue.
